Cap - Shattered Art

Some artworks have been shattered…. but surprisingly some shattered things have been made into art as well.

Or atleast his is what Brock Davis, (a talented American artist) had in mind when he conceptualized these odd kind of creativity in the name of “Shattered Art”.

The concept basically revolves around what some ordinary objects, that aren’t usually shattered, would look like if they were shattered on the floor.

Broken Banana - Shattered Art

Who would ever think a banana could shatter right? But if it did, it would look like this photo (above), and I don’t know about you, but I just see the art in it.

To see more of Brock’s work click here.

3 Critical:

  1. Loved To See – you know what I loved to see shattered? A Wii.
  2. How Did You? – come up with this concept I mean.
  3. The Art – I guess know it’s safe to say that we all have the potential to make our own kind of art.

Happy Mothers Day to all mothers and would be mothers in the world.

By the way, this greeting is only applicable for all the “Maternity Leave” qualified individuals…. lol… Just kidding.

Anyway, here’s a little poem for all the Mothers reading this….

Mothers Day Heart by Coy

Mothers Day Love by: Jacob Fuentes

Let It be Mothers Day

by: Anonymous

……………………………..

The hardest job in the world is definitely being a Mother….

I am not one, but I know there is no other

Mothers told us not to drink, not to smoke, not to hurt a woman

Mothers made us realize life… and now our lives has just began.

~o~

Though Mothers don’t really know whats best sometimes,

They still try to do their best for us everytime

Like fixing our lunch or tie for a date or interview

I think they also invented and gave us our first Curfew.

~o~

But Mothers will be Mothers, and this is their day

A day off from motherhood would be good, but they’ve always understood

That being a Mothers is not just a job or a responsibility

It is a gift… and a gift only they are worth having.

~o~

Let’s make them feel they are our life’s gift today.

Let’s give them love on Mothers Day…

cake under construction - little people art

Now here they again…. the little people of the street art project. I guess I’ve seen far to many impressive “little people” art like these that it made me think about making a blog out it. And a video to promote it.

This time I guess they’re tasked to take down one piece of lovely cake which they seriously do as you can see.

Aren’t they cute?

3 Critical:

  1. Little Big Stars – they are so small that they became big stars in my blog now. How impressive.
  2. How Small? – I’m a bit curious myself, and I’ll devote one weekend to find out how small they really are. But if you can help, then that would be good.
  3. Sweet Work – who wouldn’t love working on a cake right?

Joanna Ampil

If Angels are graced with true beauty and a peacefully graceful voice, then one might consider this girl an Angel on stage. And her names is Joanna Ampil.

Joanna is a Filipina musical theatre actress who began her acting career when she was chosen to play the role of  Kim in the London production of  Miss Saigon”.

She was invited by Sir Cameron Mackintosh to perform the same role in the Australian Premiere at the Capitol Theatre in Sydney which earned her an Australian “MO” award nomination for Best Musical Theatre Performer.

joanna-ampil

On 1996, she came back to London and was handpicked by Lord Andrew  LLoyd Webber to play the role of  Mary Magdalene in his new production of “Jesus Christ Superstar” at the Lyceum Theatre. Something no Filipina theatre singer (Including miss Lea Salonga) has experienced.

Other highlights include playing roles in: West Side Story (Maria), Les Miserables (Fantine), Hair (Sheila Franklin), and Rent (Mimi).

Aside from her theatre achievements, Joanna has also appeared in several concerts, radio and TV programs globally, helped in several charity projects, workshops, and documentaries.

A World Class Artist. A Proud Filipina. A helping heart.That’s  Joanna Ampil.

3 Critical:

  1. World Class – an artist of her talent and achievement really deserves to be called “world class”.
  2. Her Own – a lot of people may always compare her to yet another Filipina world Class artist Lea Salonga, but I honestly hinkg she is her own. Joanna is Joanna.
  3. Voice Range? – Soprano and Mezzo-Soprano

For the first time… I won’t say much in my post.

A Tinyland TragedyNow this is one heck of an artwork.

3 Critical:

  1. Final Destination – some scenes actually remind me of the movie.
  2. What Kind? – this work is great but I don’t know what kind of art this is.
  3. TinyLand – I guess accidents also do happen with tiny people. In the tinyland.

Light Graffiti or Light Painting January 11, 2009

No, this is not some sort of  CGI or an edited photo… this is what they call Light Graffiti or Light Painting. And I’m not kidding this time.

Light painting is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source (flashlights, cellphones, laser pointers, etc..) or by moving the camera. In many cases the light source itself does not have to appear in the image. The term light painting also encompasses images lit from outside the frame with hand-held light sources. (taken from wikipedia, cause they defined the art better).

Lichtfaktor

I’ve actually tried doing this with my point and shoot camera and, trust me, it’s entirely possible. But the results aren’t as perfect as these ones of course (cause these are made by experts).

versi16

The light can  be used to  “paint” a picture (by shining it directly into the camera lens), or illuminate parts of the subject .

You can do this yourself by making your subject (or yourself… just use a tripod) form something from a light source – flashlight, cellphone, etc.. – while you take the photo in a very slow shutter speed. Atleast 5 second or more would be perfect.

Nothing but cool.

3 Critical:

  1. Like Magic – certainly looks like magic to me. Doesn’t it?
  2. Who? – the first man who invented this form of photography is nothing but a genius. But who is it?
  3. Let There Be Light – yeah, and capture it with a camera.

quattro6000d-sewign machine

I don’t know if you’ve noticed this, but almost everytime there’s a new gadget in town it’s usually for the boys. “Toys for The Boys” as what they always say it is, but in rare times like today, someone somewhere bothered to make a toy for the girls (or mothers specifically) in the like of the Quattro 6000D Sewing Machine.

Now this ones really2x cool, and this would definitely change every bit of your Granny’s, Mother’s. Sister’s, or even yourself’s sewing experience. And just to make it a bit more than just a sewing machine, this gadget’s got a 7-inch HD LCD display (like no other sewing machine has), an embedded runway lighting (like no other sewing machine has again), and a camera right next to the needle (to make sure you’re running on the right sewing track). Beat that!

Sewing will never be the same again.

3 Critical:

  1. Finally – there’s something we can give our beloved mothers that will really rock.
  2. No Price – I have yet to find how much this thing costs, but I’m pretty sure it’s gonna be a bit expensive.
  3. What Else – I wonder what this thing can do besides sewing and it’s main features. Play DVD’s? Play Music?… This would be cool.

Little People - Tiny Street Art Project

This is a photo of a man who appears to be walking into some sort of an opened door. Nothing special.

But what if I say this person is just about an centimetre small, and what seems to be a room with an opened door is actually a normal-sized McDonalds Chicken Box.

Cool huh! This is a Tiny Street Art Project called “Little People“.

And just to show you how small this “Little People” are, here’s a view of it from a far. life-5-blog

No wonder they call it “Little People”. By the way, there’s more here.

3 Critical:

  1. Literally Speaking – when they said “little” here, they really mean it.
  2. Great Art – I just have to say this is one great and is definitely a unique piece of ar.
  3. Check The Banner – here’s a tip for those who would visit the site. Look at he banner, and look for that person on the top left. I’m sure you’ll have a great time.

PaperCut Art by: Peter Callesen December 3, 2008

Peter Callesen

Wood can be sculptured, cement can be sculptured, even a temporary thing like Ice could be sculptured, but another sculpture in teh name of  Peter Callesen just want to put everything into paper… I mean sculptured paper.

This new kind of very creative paper art called the “paper cut sculpture” is something everyone would be fascinated in. Who would every think paper cuts could look this good.

When asked about how he came up with the idea, Peter Callesen said: My paper works have been based around an exploration of the relationship between two and three dimensionality. I find this materialization of a flat piece of paper into a 3D form almost a magic process – or maybe one could call it obvious magic, because the process is obvious and the figures still stick to their origin, without the possibility of escaping.

Magic Indeed. Here’s more of his works:

So if you’ve been a master (or have gone tired) of the old Origami tricks which already have over and over, I suggest you try this one.

Tip: practice with scratch papers, and make sure they are not contracts or any of your mom/dad’s important documents. That’s just not gonna give you any credit.

3 Critical:

  1. No Prints – I guess this art is at it’s best when you use white paper. But I’m not sure.
  2. Not Easy – this art is definitely not as easy as it seems.
  3. One Genius Guy – my hands are down to the sculpture.  This is just amazing and inspiring.

Two Generations of Love And Hate November 18, 2008

Baby - Love and Hate

loves playing…. hates napping

Don’t worry… this is not about love, or hate, or love and hate in general. I just loved seeing one concept portrayed in different generations, and I thought you might find it interesting so why not share it right?

Above is a photo well edited to look like a baby with both fists tattooed with the words love and hate in it’s fingers. And the teeter in his mouth of course. (it’s my desktop background now..)

And here below is a photo (un-edited) of a grown man with both fists tattooed with the words love and hate in it’s fingers. What’s in his mouth, I’m not really sure, and if you notice the letters “T” and “O” are replaced with a sword (or knife) and a burning heart.

Grown Up - Love and Hate

loves playing…. hates napping too

I guess this means that the older people are, the more meaning they find in simple words. Or they’re just richer to hire a more creative tattoo artists with more designs in mind.

3 Critical:

  1. Looks Cool – I don’t know why, but finger tattoo’s just look so cool when drawn in a fist.
  2. Ironic – Love has the same letters as hate. I wonder who made these words.
  3. Meaning – does the baby having the “love hate” over “hate love” pattern imply something, or is it just unintentional? What do you think?
