I remember the first time Emma Coulter sent me an email in 2011 about her upcoming solo show. She referred to it as her “make or break moment”. I was about to fly out for my annual design pilgrimage to Milan and unable to help her. As it turns out, the show signaled a significant turning point for this dedicated artist. Since then, Coulter has gone from strength to strength, seizing every opportunity and securing a series of subsequent exhibitions, including an artist residency in Berlin. For my money, her art practice has evolved, blossomed and reached new heights in the last couple of years. There is a definite sense of composure and new-found confidence in all of her pieces. At the same time, her work pulsates with energy, vitality and sheer joy created with her signature upbeat colour palette…

Oh yes indeed, this young lady is one super cool cat…

Many of his abstract art pieces are created using software which visualise various bits of data according to a set of rules. Ummm… WHAT? I know! It’s completely amazeballs. And if you are still confused, perhaps watching the below video will help explain things better…
Hope you guys are in the mood for some mind-bending images? What’s new, I hear you say. Well, I guess you have a point – you’re on yellowtrace after all. Hooray!
I’ve been meaning to post about camera obscura technique for ages now. Sometimes I can’t keep up with myself, let alone everything else. So much amazing content, so little time. Anyway, camera obscura (in Latin – ‘camera’ = vaulted chamber or room; ‘obscura’ = dark) is an optical device that projects an image of surrounds on a screen. This is, in fact, one of the inventions which lead to photography. Camera obscura device typically consists of a box with a whole in one side.
