Posted on 0

Following a similar aesthetic style to the ornamental wigs of the baroque and rococo periods, paper artist Asya Kozina creates ornate headdresses that pay homage to one of the most outrageous luxuries and stylized trends in history. the artist began experimenting with these paper creations in her initial paper costume series published in 2015. With this second edition, the artist adds an additional artistic flare by integrating symbols of modern industrialization and advancement into the towering paper compositions.

A SERIES OF UNCOMFORTABLE HOUSEHOLD ITEMS DESIGNED BY KATERINA KAMPRANI

A Series Of Uncomfortable Household Items Designed By Katerina Kamprani

The Uncomfortable is a series of impractical household objects by Athens-based architect Katerina Kamprani. The infuriating works play off of common dishware, cutlery, and watering cans, making the task each is typically assigned either impossible or extremely difficult. Every object is created from the material it would be constructed from normally, making siamese wine glasses and linked ceramic mugs all the more humorous.
Often before Kamprani creates the physical object, she will create a 3D model to test its shape. Two of my favorite hypothetical pieces are her toeless rainboots and concrete umbrella, neither of which have been physically produced.

GRAHAM, THE ONLY PERSON ON EARTH DESIGNED TO SURVIVE A CAR COLLISION

Graham, The Only "Person" On Earth Designed To Survive A Car Collision

An interactive lifelike sculpture called Graham, the only “person” on earth designed to withstand a car collision, has been nominated for this year’s Designs of the Year awards. Graham was made by Melbourne artist Patricia Piccinini in collaboration with leading trauma surgeon Christian Kenfield and crash investigation expert Dr David Logan. Made from a combination of silicone fibreglass, concrete, human hair and steel, and weighing in at approximately 200 kilograms, Graham’s unusual enhanced physique imagines what humans might look like had we evolved to withstand low-impact car crashes.
His enlarged skull is filled with extra cerebrospinal fluid and ligaments to protect the brain, while the neck – one of the most vulnerable body parts in a collision – has been removed entirely. Sacks have been placed between each of his ribs to create airbag-like cushioning and extra joints in his legs allow him to jump out of the way quickly.
