Replication

Since I would like to include images from the plants I have worked with in my publication, Georgia gave me the name of this photographer. He almost shoots portraits of the plants. They are very well lighted and look very delicate. I also like the grey background because it makes the colours of the plants stand more out and is not such a hard contrast as a white background.

Karl Blossfeldt

Karl Blossfeldt (1864-1932) obviously used analogue black and white photography because his time didn't allow him to use anything else. However, they remind me of my flower oil based ink prints. They show almost the same details and are as much as three dimensioal as the photographs at the top. It would have been quite interesting to use the same plants as him and compare the prints with the photographs.

Cristina Iglesias

The Vegetation Rooms are constructed as larger-than-life organic environments that reduce the viewer in scale like Alice in Wonderland. At once reassuring and claustrophobic, these environments are constructed from numerous segments cast from the same mould, referring to the mechanics of creativity and reproduction. In these ways, organic and architectural structures are placed together to illustrate the slow time of geology and the fast pace of technology.

Inspired by the trompe l'oeil conceits of Baroque architecture Iglesias folds the very walls of the gallery into her sculptures, playing tricks with perspective, creating intricate bas-reliefs and using reflective surfaces to open up illusory spaces. As entire walls peel apart, architectural structures become reflective imprints echoing and duplicating each other. Iglesias also weaves counterpoints between different architectural periods, juxtaposing the raw concrete structures of a modernist sensibility with elegant canopies of veined alabaster recalling the domes of ancient Persian mosques or Byzantine churches.

Boyle Family

Details

Boyle Family is best known for the earth studies: three dimensional casts of the surface of the earth which record and document random sites with great accuracy. These works combine real material from the site (stones, dust, twigs etc) with paint and resins, preserving the form of the ground to make unique one-off pieces that suggest and offer new interpretations of the environment, combining a powerful conceptual framework with a strong and haunting physical and visual presence.

The idea behind their work is very amazing. They let their audience chose random places on the earth to then replicate the square meter exactly how they found them before. Therefore they really engaged with the environment afterwards recreated it man-made. So those square meters exist twice one natural, one man-made.

Rain Wu - Plastic City

Details
Details

Rain Wu has graduated from RCA with her project called 'Plastic City'. It discusses the overuse and waste of plastic in our society nowadays and turns the material into something useful and innovative. I really like the idea of recycling plastic and building something out of it. This might be interesting in terms of installation. I could use that thought and collect everyday plastic products and transfer them into my artwork.

Tim gave me this artist name because my prints were quite similar. I really like his etchings because he prints the whole plants on the page including roots. It looks so delicate and beautiful just the effigy of the actual weed plant.

I am impressed by the delicateness of the prints from Bryan Nash Gill. It seems like he treats the wood with such a sensibility and represents the whole characteristics from the individual trees on the paper. Monoprinting is actually a really nice method to show texture and the material's features.

Electric Fountain

by Tim Noble and Sue Webster
Rockefeller Plaza, New York City, February-April 2008

“There was only one way to do it. I went at it, had two full days of brainstorming with my whole team. We made a very basic structural analysis, worked on constructional design possibilities, did cost estimations. Concurrently the workshop started fabricating a 1 to 1 mock-up of a segment of one of the tears…including all the lighting.” Michael invited Tim and Sue to come to the Studios and have a look. Their reaction was “It’s there, it’s simply there!”

So Electric Fountain only had to be fabricated, shipped to New York and installed. And the fountain remains there happily ever after.
Is that how this fairytale ends? Oh goodness, no! Tim and Sue put it this way: “Ideas were realised, holes and empty spaces were filled, tears were shed and many hearts were broken along the way, but where there once was darkness now there is light.”

The replacement of water by light is fascinating. It is an optical illusion and also represents the artificial world which America recreates in Las Vegas and oter places. This art work in New York is a metaphor for our society nowadays.

I was very impressed with the texture Russel created with textiles. It looks like natural processes and you wouldn't guess that it is readjusted.

Ramon Todo makes the natural objects even more beautiful by inserting glass. That makes them very delicate and fragile. Besides, the colours of the green glass in contrast with the beige and dark stone are magnifiscent.
