Tatiana Plakhova

23 August 2010

New illustrations by Tatiana Plakhova from Moscow. If you haven’t seen her work you might want to check out some of her other projects, including complexity graphics.

Brittny Badger wrote in with some really nice design, illustration, and disassembled household appliance art. These photos are from her “senior thesis project at the hartford art school this past year…i took apart used cooking/cleaning appliances, and arranged their interior parts very systematically on a white sheet of bristol board. my intention was to explore the hidden “brains” of these appliances; allowing us to view these everyday objects from a new perspective.”

Just love the work of bi-coastal artist Tauba Auerbach. It’s really refreshing in it’s simplicity.

Undoing is a butoh performance series that explores modes of erasing the individual mind’s claim to the body. This radical point of erasure between object and subject is pursued in order to achieve a quality of emptiness. Once the individual has been eclipsed, the ego silenced, the body will be danced. Undoing will undo itself everyday on the Drostdy Lawns at the National Arts Festival Grahamstown.
