Our curators and conservators are hard at work producing an amazingly comprehensive online scholarly catalog to complement our Robert Rauschenberg collection. The Rauschenberg Research Project, part of the Getty Foundation’s Online Scholarly Catalogue Initiative, is scheduled to go live in 2012, and will include essays, conservation research, an abundance of images/multimedia features, and more.

Water Light Graffiti by Antonin Fourneau

I try to refrain from posting content that I’ve seen on Colossal because it seems to be the main source for many people on tumblr. However, when Chris posts something to do with Interactive Design I really can’t help myself, this is just outstanding.

This wall is created out of thousands of LED’s that are illuminated when they come in contact with water. It means you can effectively turn a water pistol in to a spray can, or even just wet your fingertips and draw with your hands. The overall effect is wonderful and I’d love to see this in person.

Photomontages of Trees Appear Like Impressionist Paintings

Pep Ventosa gives our cities’ trees the attention they deserve in this beautiful series he calls In the Round - Trees. Though they first appear like impressionist paintings, you’d be surprised to find out that they’re actually dozens of photographs of the same tree merged into one. Ventosa circles a tree, shooting it multiple times at all different angles. Though he gives each tree center stage, one can make out some faint, ghostly outlines of objects that surround them like cars, other trees and even buildings. As he told Garden Design, “Whatever is around it becomes the spirit of the place, but not the main thing. Somehow it’s like [giving] the tree the leading role in those otherwise very complex environments.”

Lia Melia -  Illuminated Pictures

Artist’s statement: 

“I have designed illuminated paintings that are meant to bring an ambiance to any shaded corner of a room. During the day they are paintings, at night, with the aid of a simple light fitting, they become a glowing focus point. The boxes are covered in layers of silk mulberry paper, and the glass is presented in simple light wood or black frames. The backs are open to allow ventilation.”

The paintings I post here are the lit ones. Visit Lia Melia’s website to see the originals.

Barbara Cole - Chromatics marks Cole’s growing interest in colour abstraction. In this series, she has progressed towards a near-total dissolution of the figure, referencing and reinterpreting mid-century colour field painting. The result is a dramatic tension between the figure and form that tests the nature of photography and its impact on our experience of reality.
