These colorful bears, made of feathers, were on show in 2013 at the galerie Perrotin in New York. At first sight they look cute, almost like Pinata’s but when seeing these sculptures up close they gave us a horrible feeling…check it out. See if you feel the same. Paola Pivi site.

I don’t think I have to use many words to convince you this is great. Well, maybe when you are not a big fan of colorful art. But who is that bitter? I can name a few come to think of it. But let’s not go there.-

About the work above; “Canadian Photographer Jessica Eaton has created more dazzling photographic works for her debut exhibition in the UK- Ad InfinitumOpening Jan. 23rd – Feb 8th, 2014 at The Hospital Club. The images are made on sheets of 4 x 5 film and a series of monochromatic cubes. Eaton places red, green or blue gels over the camera lens to make multiple exposures of each cube, “The darkroom is a really visceral way of build a deeper understanding of the medium … and I have pushed the magic of it all into the very small darkroom I now have, the chamber inside my camera bellows.” (via jessicaeaton.tumblr)
