Watch Denver-based Deepti Nair and Harikrishnan Panicker build Rise and Skate, a six foot by six foot paper cut light box for skateboard art fundraiser Bordo Bello at the AIGA National Center, New York. On their work, from Black Book

They started experimenting with paper cut shadow boxes in 2010 with hand painted watercolor paper which was then cut and assembled in a wooden box to create a diorama, with years of practice their art became more intricate and minimal at the same time. They started experimenting with lights and simplified their pieces by losing the colored aspect of the paper. They have since then evolved to add their own style of paper cut art incorporating back-lit light boxes using flexible LED strip lights.

For ten days in a Pierogi Gallery space in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, artists Ward Shelley and Alex Schweder lived in “a giant hamster wheel,” a large installation called In Orbit. From Animal New York

This is the fourth collaboration between Shelley and Schweder in a series they call “The Social Relationship Architecture Project.” Each time they’ve built a different dwelling space that requires them to work together in order to live. This time, they’ve arranged the various components and furnishings of a home on a giant wheel. “In Orbit is a two bedroom apartment, in a sense,” Schweder says. “One is on the inside and one on the outside.”

From the Pérez Art Museum Miami’s exhibition, AMERICANA: Formalizing Craft, this is Adrian Esparza’s Wake and Wonder, a 12 x 30 foot installation rewoven from a Mexican serape blanket into colorful, geometric patterns on the museum’s walls.

This looks like some wonderful DIY-inspiration around these parts. The exhibition continues until May 2015.

Now that mobile phones are so central to our daily lives, how can the phone booth, an increasingly obsolete and disappearing public object, serve a new, more playful function? Here’s one idea: Phone Booth Aquariums (Evasion Urbaine), installations by Benedetto Bufalino and Benoit Deseille.
