    Design Free Thursday // Bela Borsodi Still Life Photography.

    3rd October

    From his super cunning still life creations, to trompe l’oeil style images, there is no doubt Bela Borsodi has some serious skills. Having said this, it’s his spirit I am really drawn to. There is a perfectly-pitched amount of playfulness and wit in all of his work that I love…

    Sculpting and Manipulating Space With Light.

    17th September

    Although I am a huge fan of beautiful fittings which capture, cradle and bounce light within interiors, today I wanted to explore a more conceptual side of this medium – the idea of projected light as the means of manipulating space.

    Homage To The Lost Spaces // Public Installation by Mike Hewson.

    26th June

    Mike Hewson is a civil engineer and a self-taught artist based in Christchurch, New Zealand. This self-initiated trompe l’oeil style installation, funded with private donations and his own money, is Hewson’s personal response to the devastating Christchurch earthquake and it’s aftermath. Before it disappeared forever, Hewson set out to pay homage to badly damaged Cranmer Courts building destined for demolition. This is such a powerful and eery project which would have undoubtedly elicited countless memories and a huge sense of loss for many residents of Christchurch. I am truly in awe and profoundly humbled by this work…

    14th February

    Beautiful and super fun trompe l’oeil style alphabet photography by Vienna born, New York based Bela Borsodi. Apart from being clever and talented, Bela must be an incredibly patient person in arranging these incredible sets before photographing them. Imagining the patience required for this makes me get all fidgety…
