The Photographic and Sculptural Blend of Osang Gwon
The artwork of Korean artist Gwon Osang is a unique blend of photography and sculpture. He begins by extensively photographing his subjects, then attaching the photographs to plaster sculptures and molds. The result is a strange mix of two and thee dimensions. Also, while the sculptures may point to classical bronze and marble statues, the photos and poses are much more reminiscent of fashion photography. Thus, the sculptures seem simultaneously heavy and light in physical weight as well as seriousness. They’re especially fitting for a time marked by the abundance of images and hyper-documentation.

Erik Söderberg “Fractal Experience”
In early 2011 I was exploring the relations of geometry, nature and the human being in a series of 25 pictures that I called ”Fractal Experience”. This is part two - continuing the exploration of geometric shapes, patterns, and fractals with an added element: space-time. This time I’ve worked in 3D and produced a set of animated looping gif’s.
I’ve limited each animation to at most 48 frames, most are around 10-15 frames - to keep the file size small and to maximize the creativity with in these frames.

Eric Standley is an artist and educator currently living and working in Virginia. In his incredible series of 3D laser cut paper art, Standley’s work is found at the intersection of art, technology, history and mathematics.
His vector drawings were initially inspired by the geometry in Gothic and Islamic architectural ornamentation. The pieces are painstakingly assembled from laser-cut paper, layered to create elaborate 3-D works of art. Often these works are created using well over 100 layers of paper and can take months of planning and drawing. The result is so intricately detailed that the pieces must be viewed from multiple perspectives to be fully appreciated.
