Desert Breath
February 26, 2014



desert09.jpg

Could it be for real or just a dream ?
Located near the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt, in the Sahara desert.
 

Desert Breath is a Land Art project created by D.A.ST. Arteam. The team was founded in 1995 by: Danae Stratou (installation artist), Alexandra Stratou (industrial designer & architect), Stella Constantinides (architect), for the purpose of creating this project.

The project is rooted in our common desire to work in the desert. In our mind's eye the desert was a place where one experiences infinity. We were addressing the desert as a state of mind, a landscape of the mind. The point of departure was the conical form, the natural formation of the sand as a material. 

Desert Breath expands in an area of 100.000 m2, in the eastern Sahara desert bordering the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. It is a site-specific work that generated out of our perception of the site itself. Its construction consists of the displacement of 8.000 m3 of sand formed so as to create precise positive and negative conical volumes. The conical volumes form two interlocking spirals that move out from a common centre with a phase difference of 180o degrees in the same direction of rotation. The centre is a 30-metre diameter vessel formed in a W-shaped section and filled with water to its rim. 

Located between the sea and a body of mountains at the point where the immensity of the sea meets the immensity of the desert, the work functions on two different levels in terms of viewpoint: from above as a visual image, and from the ground, walking the spiral pathway, a physical experience.

The construction of Desert Breath was completed in March 1997. Desert Breath still exists becoming through its slow disintegration, an instrument to measure the passage of time.

Biography

www.doitschinoff.com

Stephan Doitschinoff is a self-taught artist who was born in 1977 in São Paulo, Brazil, where he is currently based. As the son of an Evangelical minister, Doitschinoff spent his childhood absorbing the visual vocabulary of religious art. As an artist, he has developed his own unique language and style through imagery that creatively combines Afro-Brazilian folklore with Baroque religious iconography, as well as Alchemic and Pagan symbolism. Today, exhibits at museums and galleries in the US, Brazil, and Europe, including the São Paulo Art Museum (MASP), the Museum of Contemporary Arts of San Diego (MACSD) or Jonathan LeVine Gallery, reflect the increasing appeal and prestige of Stephan Doitschinoff's work in the eyes of international media, art critics, and the general public.





CHANEL 2014 SPRING
February 22, 2014

NOTES DE PRINTEMPS

Spring makeup strikes a colourful chord with light, joyful notes. At the heart of the collection, a chorus of fresh, luminous reds sets the season's tone for cheeks, lips and fingertips.

Spring2014_collection.jpg


We love the color. Following the red tone, pinks and violets offers a variation in shades. Pastel pink swept over eyelids in a sheer touch or electric pink on lips. Grey lavender for a soft gaze or violet plum lacquer on the nails.


THE SPRING IS JUST AROUND THE CONER !

Vogue

Vogue has been a mirror of the art movements of each period since the first issue was published in 1892.Their commitment with arts has accompanied fashion on its pages, as there hasn't been a single year without an artist collaboration, whether they were photographers, painters or sculptors. Maybe the most known works are the photographs from genius such as Helmut Newton, Richard Avedon, Irving Penn, Henri Cartier-Bresson or Herb Ritts (in fact, Vogue was the first magazine to publish a photograph on a cover). But there's also been great painters that created masterpieces for the cover of Vogue, such as Dalí, Miró, and Andy Warhol.

plant-1.jpg


Beach canvas created by environmental Artist Tony Plant.
Armed with little more than standard garden rake, environmental artist Tony Plant transforms the breathtakingly scenic beaches of England into temporary canvases for his swirling sand drawings.

plant-8.jpg

plant-4.jpg

Each work is created below the tidal zones where the sand is flatter and wetter, allowing for greater contrast as he quickly drags the rake into various geometric patterns. The beauty however is fleeting as the artworks last only a few hours before being consumed by the incoming tide.

Beautiful creation is a temporary, ephemeral works that are meant to be washed away by the waves.

Girls can skate !
January 29, 2013

girlscanskate.jpg

Perfect image by Camilo Phos.

I love this film "Bones Brigade: An Autobiography" about skateboarding in the 80s, & truthfully, In Bones Brigade, Steve Caballero, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Hawk, Mike McGill, Lance Mountain & Rodney Mullen discuss their rise to the top of the skateboarding game. Plucked from obscurity as young kids, they made up a team which was cultivated & encouraged by Stacy Peralta. The documentary follows the personal challenges & difficulties they experienced as they progressed through their careers.



Ooh la la !!

hbz-blog-louis-vuitton-mini-movie.jpg Girls about town, take note: small is the new big. Tired of toting your entire life around in a humongous holdall? Then it's time to downsize and minimize. Get ready to experience an unbelievable lightness of being...

Louis Vuitton's mini icons dare you to ditch everything you don't need, but welcome all you do - keys, smartphone, wallet, lipstick - and still leave room for more! A concentrate of the Art Deco elegance of the 1934 original, the Alma BB is a lightweight and ladylike companion from day to night. The all-new Monceau BB - a mini replica of the 1986 classic - has the nostalgic appeal of a satchel, but is strictly for girls who've finished with school. And what of the Pochette Accessoires, celebrated since 1992? Well, it has graduated to full handbag status with an oh-so-subtle increase in size.





Its perfection !!

I adore this elaborate trick in the city.  Do you like it ???

Melted Ice Cream Truck in Adelaide, Australia

urban-art-melted-ice-cream-truck.jpg

This mysterious melted ice cream truck showed up in the suburban streets of Adelaide in South Australia in 2006. Though the image has been passed around the internet with a big question mark in place of artist credit, it is in fact 'Hot with the Chance of Late Storm', the work of Australian art collective 'Glue Society'. It was created for the 2006 Sculpture by the Sea fair.

900-Pound Box Man by Pablo Curutchet

urban-art-900-pound-box-man-curutchet.jpg

Whereas Cordal's sculptures are subtle and small, this installation by Argentinian artist Pablo Curutchet is anything but. The 900-pound box man was installed in Boulevar san Juan and av. Marcelo T. Alvear, Córdoba, Argentina, in 2006 stood nearly 28 feet above street level and was constructed entirely out of cardboard boxes and tape. It took 11 people to mount it into place.

Inflatable Animal Sculptures by Joshua Allen Harris



Inflatable animal sculptures by Joshua Allen Harris come alive when placed above sewer grates on the streets of New York. Harris crafts the sculptures from plastic bags; when a train passes, air comes gushing out of the grate, causing the animals to 'dance'.

Very nice !!

The Saguaro
October 19, 2012

Look at this beautiful color contrast !! Whether you come for the sun, the air, the spas, the style or the natural beauty, there's an undeniable appeal to this oasis of desert modern in the Coachella Valley.Designed by Peter Stamberg and Paul Aferiat of Stamberg Aferiat Architecture, The Saguaro is a new hotel in the Old Town of Scottsdale, Arizona.

Now there's a new place to lay your head while soaking it all up.  The bright colors throughout the exterior and interior of the property, though non traditional in Southwest design, are meant to channel the palette of twelve indigenous wildflowers from the region.
