Crumple VII, 2009 Acrylic and inkjet on canvas, 96 x 128 inches,  


Yes, this is a painting, not a crumpled piece of paper. 
Artist is Tauba Auerbach. Project: The crumple paintings which are perhaps the most mesmerizing and intriguing in the whole Deitiech Projects. The illusion of a crumpled surface is constructed from large Ben Day dots, and only visible upon standing far away from the work. This created an element of play for the viewer, a visual sensory delight. Cited from and video available here.

Townhouse in Landskrona..

Loved this: Swedish architect Elding Oscarson has completed a modern house in a street of traditional terraced cottages in Landskrona, Sweden. The house, which is just five metres wide, fills a gap in the street that has been vacant for over 50 years.

i fell in love with these scarves. they remind me of the sights, colors and geometric designs of long past. i minored in Middle-Eastern Art and Architecture in college and these scarves have a strong Arabic influence. even the labels and names of the collections are Arabic in origin. a work of art around one's neck. beautiful. from John De Maya.
