The Chromatic Typewriter, Artistic Innovation 2012
Tyree Callahan is an interesting landscape painter from Bisbee, Arizona that focuses his time studying beautiful scenes with oils. Tyree does an outstanding job replicating the images from real life, making them so vivid to the point of near abstract. Mr. Callahan is a pure genius, reinventing this 1937 Underwood Standard Typewriter. Tweaking it to his exact liking, replacing the ink with paint swatches. I would gladly invest in one of these machines for my next endeavors. Be sure to check out more exciting work from the mind of Tyree Callahan, over at his main site, here.
POP-UP VIENNA | Hector Serrano
Pop-up Vienna is a collection of Vienna landmarks made of thin brass sheet metal with a silver finish. The souvenir comes packed flat; once opened, it is simple and fun to build the landmarks by lifting the walls. This makes the product not only a souvenir, but an experience too. The souvenirs are produced through acid etching, an ancient process that has evolved into a modern manufacturing technique. This, in combination with the unique idea of building your own Vienna, represents two sides of Vienna: an exciting contemporary city with a rich historical heritage. A recognizable and authentic Viennese souvenir with a twist.
Transforming ordinary materials into an ambitious series of photographs, Belgian architect Francois Delfosse created these Arctic landscapes using only light and a plastic bag. The end result is pretty impressive!
