 Sophie Kahn Sculptures

Sophie Kahn’s work addresses the resonances of death in the still image. It owes its fragmented aesthetic to the interaction of new and old media, and the collision of the body with imaging technology.

I combine cutting-edge means of reproduction, like 3d laser scanning and 3d printing, with ancient bronze casting techniques. Using damaged 3d data, I create sculptures and video works that resemble de-constructed monuments or memorials.

The precise 3d scanning technology I use was never designed to capture the body, which is always in motion. When confronted with a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, generating a 3d ‘motion blur’. From these scans, I create videos or life-sized 3d printed mold sculptures. The resulting sculptures bear the artifacts of all the digital processes they have been though. The scanning and 3d printing process strips color and movement from the body, leaving behind only traces of its form – a scan of the face resembles nothing more than a digital death mask.

Graziano Locatelli

The works all have the name of a street or a street that has been part of the life of Locatelli and want to be an element of profound innovation in contemporary art. This is how the walls torn, shattered sculptures in which the memory bully comes across space and time, giving voice to a neurosis and an emotion tied to the objects that have left deep scars in the life of the artist. The tiles vintage crumbling and animate in a three-dimensional movement, are the chosen element to emphasize the power and vehemence that the memories have in our lives.  A broken wall in a house “uninhabited” that wants to tell his story.  Hence the title of the exhibition “Disabitare” as an evocation of a time that was where the object that has been forgotten its presence screams coming out of the walls, the walls, from our memories. An attempt, therefore, “Re-inhabiting” to Locatelli, an attempt to revive a past that would not be forgotten, but that is hard to forget.

A Bonsai Tree in Space - Azuma Makoto

Japanese artist Azuma Makoto recently ventured to Nevada’s Black Rock Desert (home of Burning Man) to launch a Japanese white pine bonsai into space. The artist also arranged a stunning bouquet with about 30 varieties of flowers from around the world and launched them into space as well. The project, entitled Exobiotanica, occurred on 15 July

To accomplish the feat Makoto collaborated with Sacramento-based JP Aerospace, a volunteer-based organization that constructs and sends vessels into orbit. The team used helium balloons to launch the plants and the bonsai reached a height of 91,800 ft (27.98 km), while the bouquet topped out at 87,000 ft (26.51 km).
