Incredibly detailed and well composed drawings of junkyard cars and delivery trucks covered in graffiti by Australian artist Paul White. Be sure to check out the laborious and seriously committed to detail process of creating these works through the 30 hour timelapses. We at Epistrophy love the use of white space in Paul’s drawings which as if erased on purpose recedes in the background to allow for the beautiful pencil line-work to stand out even more.

Professor Adam Summers, associate director of Comparative Vertebrate Biomechanics at Washington University uses a staining method developed almost 40 years ago but rarely shown this way. The aim behind it is to expose the intricate and oftentimes hard to pinpoint skeletal structure of sea and ocean creatures.

Each of the fish specimen is infused with blue (called Alcian Blue) or red (called … Read the rest

Captives is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures, a contemporary interpretation of Michelangelo’s unfinished series “Prigioni” (1513-1534) and his technique of “non-finito”.

The work explores the tension and equilibrium between form and matter, man-made objects of perfection and complex, chaotic forms of nature. Whilst referencing Renaissance sculptures, the focus of this series shifts from pure figurative representation to the articulation of matter itself. As in the original “Prigioni” the classic figures are left unfinished, documenting the very history Read the rest

This amazing new sound/sculpture installation was a jury recommended work for the 14th Japan Media Arts Festival. The work creates a field of exploding fog clouds through the strategical use of music speakers to push them out. The possibilities of this technology seem infinite and they really remind us of the waterfall graphic print technology that has been around for some time now.

In research of digital information the installation ‘for those who see’ shows the beauty of the Read the rest

Dutch radiation scientist Arie van’t Riet turns traditional x-ray imagery into art with his Nature series.

Arie van’t Riet: As a physicist I specialized in radiation physics.Especially in very low energy X-rays. Some years ago I started to use these experience in X-ray photography. An amazing kind of black and white photography.

Looking with X-ray eyes to nature. That’s what I like to experience with my X-ray camera. I prefer X-ray objects of ordinary scenes like a butterfly nearby a Read the rest

Incredibly detailed artworks produced entirely out of tape by Russian born artist Mark Khaisman. Backlit and carefully displays, the pieces have a stunning holographic quality. The texture produced by the uniform dimension of the tape makes them read as intricate tapestries that densify and open up to produce imagery inspired by movies and historic elements.
