These are the incredible photorealistic landscape paintings by the Argentinian artist Helmut Ditsch. The painting titled ‘Ten Commandments II’ has a special significance for the author of this post.

I’m diggin’ the work of Parisian-based artist Julien Langendorff. His work is a mix of illustration, papercuts, films and collages, which have been exhibited in numerous galleries in NYC, Paris, Berlin and Victoria (Australia). If you like his work, make sure to check out his ‘Rise of the Golden Sun’ installation. Stunning.

Svpply is a retail bookmarking and recommendation service, filtered through the collective wishlists of invited members, featuring the full spectrum of retail products, from the exclusive to the wholesale. Its like flicking through a shopping catalogue when you were a child picking out items that you wished you could have, but except Biker Mice From Mars action figures, it has some tasty fashion and design related items. I love it

“The Particle”, by Alex Posada is a ‘kinetic sculpture that experiments with color, sound and movement. A sensor monitoring system analyzes the users movements in the exhibition space. Around the space occupied by the sculpture defines a surround sound system that reacts and becomes one with the movement and light.’ . . . simply stunning, great work Alex. Watch the process video here, with a photo series on Alex’s flick’r here.
