Rather than accepting that knowledge is simply accumulated, artist Guy Laramee views the world’s knowledge as a resource that is eroded over time. In the same way that mountains slowly erode to hills, piles of obsolete encyclopedias eventually erode from sources of knowledge to objects that simply exist.

Mixed media sculpture and student at London’s Royal College of Art, Malene Hartmann Rasmussen created this art installation for her final based on “how we perceive the world, twisting and changing the perception of the space to create an eerie surreal and otherworldly feeling.” Other projects of hers worth checking out: Cellar Door and Squirrel Gun.

One of my latest addictions on my iPad is WURM for creating experimental generative art. The developers did a fantastic job giving you patterns, colors and shapes to play with, and then you can fine tune your masterpiece with all of the controls. WURM even has a blog setup on Tumblr (gallery.wurmapp.com) that showcases all the user submitted art.

This afternoon I stumbled across the amazing relief paintings and installations by Gregory Euclide. The piece above, ”what clouded my receiving hand is the way I own sensation”, was created with acrylic, baby’s breath, found foam, mylar, pencil, pine needle, seedum, sponge, and vellum.
Below are a few other examples of Gregory’s work, including the album art for the upcoming Bon Iver album coming out tomorrow.

At a very early age Aelita Andre’s parents watched their daughter paint expressively and with passion. To help encourage her artistic abilities they setup a studio that where she can brush, splash, paint and create her expressive and colorful art. In this 13 minute short film you can see the four year old abstract painter at work in her studio.
Although I’m unsure if she truly is an art prodigy or that her parents are simply skilled marketers (an entirely different debate), it is amazing to see a young and uninhibited creative mind in action. Right now her art is on exhibition in New York City’s Agora Gallery in Chelsea through June 25th. If you want to pick up one of her pieces it’ll only set you back $25,000.
Like much of Andy Gilmore’s art, Currentes consists of brightly saturated colors and interesting geometry patterns. Chances are you’ve seen his work on Gold Panda’s latest album or in a number of magazines including Wired, The New York Times and Wallpaper*.
Named after the symbol for square music notation, which consists of diamond shaped notes in descending scale, Currentes is indicative of Andy Gilmore’s arresting, color-saturated, pixel-based work.
The Yamaguchi Center for Arts and Media in southern Japan is featuring a new “particles” art installtion by Daito Manabe and Motoi Ishibashi. To create the illumnated particles in three-dimensional space they crafted a rollercoster-like rail structure that carries hundreds of balls with build-in LEDs. As the balls travel down the rails they are programmed to blink at specific time intervals to create the floating shapes. Plus, visitors to the installation can control and manipulate the particles with a touch display.

After three weeks in the new New Ezra and Style Hatch office space it is finally starting to take shape. Now there is plenty of room to expand the team with two or three talented people in the coming months.
As you can see all the walls are bare and empty. I would love to fill the walls with art, prints and interesting books. As I start to look for the right pieces this week, any suggestions you have would be amazing. What do you think should go on the walls?
