Jeremy Cole and Chris Cunningham

It’s been 10 years after the release of Björk’s “All is Full of Love” (directed by Chris Cunningham) and it’s still one of my favourite videos. I love the milky smooth texture of the robots vs the black inner machinery and the sparks caused by the machines that are assembling them. Apart from the beautiful imagery, I also like the message of the video very much: Everything “melts” through the power of love, even cold and seemingly lifeless robots. Apparently the robots were sculpted from clay and not from plastic or metal.
It’s the white and black bone china, the smooth shapes and the metal parts in these ceramic suspension lamps by Jeremy Cole that remind me of the video. Enjoy!

Bela Borsodi

Posted in art, fashion, photography by menno1976 on September 8, 2009


Bela Borsodi‘s is an expert in taking things out of their context and by transforming the way we see them. This change of perspective is both intriguing as it is controversial.

For his Foot Fetish series for V Magazine he cut out prints of naked women and placed them in the shoes. This caused quite a stir among various feminist groups… I personally like Borsodi’s work very much because it’s not your average fashion still life, it’s cheeky and will definitely be discussed.
I love how cutting out cardboard, paper and the use of other non-contextual materials sets his work aside from “normal” still lifes. The way he turns ordinary objects into real characters is just so much fun!

 


Levi van Veluw

Levi van Veluw‘s work intrigues me, would you categorize his work as portraits or…still lifes? In his work he explores the line between what’s animate and inanimate and this sometimes freaks me out a little. Does he become the material covering his face or does the material become human?

Levi graduated from the Artez Art School in Arnhem, the Netherlands and received the Photographer of the Year Award at the 2007 IPA International Photo Awards in the USA.
