Installation by Robert Seidel features colourful projections onto hanging abstract paper sculptures - video embedded below:
Hand-drawn sketches were the starting point for the installation grapheme. They delineate the artist’s initial creative idea and serve as the basis for the films projected, as well as for the form of the projection sculpture itself. These sketches are translations of memories and associations, which the artist, like in a diary, has captured from the most varied places and stations of life.
… The organic projection sculpture frees the film from the dogmatic limitations of rectangular silver screens and monitors. These delicate, laser-cut tissues float in the architectural space, light spills over them, and they come to life before the viewers’ eyes.
Currently shown at the Museum Wiesbaden, Germany.

David Harber, UK. Polished stainless steel portal. Awesome!
Every David Harber creation is, in essence, a sculpture.
David is inspired by the abstract qualities of light, shadow, reflection and organic structure, and delights in exploring the juxtaposition of contrasting yet complementary materials.
His latest works are the Heaven and Earth series, combining oxidised and mirror-polished stainless steel to create dramatic and contemporary forms.- See more at: http://www.davidharber.co.uk/sculpture.htm#sthash.oeH3Ibzc.dpuf
Mirror, mirror, in the woods…
“Independent film is, on the entry level, a game that revolves around reputation, recognition, and, for lack of a more decorous term, the filmmaker’s ‘brand.’”
— very true words.

"That was a wonderful character element that unfortunately didn’t stay. I don’t know why." - Malcolm Jamal Warner. Oh, we know why…
"There are a wealth of Spanish speaking African Americans who share my passion for the language. One is one of America’s sweetheart Ms. Huxtable who learned Spanish when her family moved to Mexico during her childhood. I encourage my African American brothers and sisters to learn Spanish and Portuguese to connect across the diaspora.” - Black Girl, Latin World

KTZ was all monochrome and modern tribal print at London Fashion Week today. This showstopping collection is a flawless knit of urban couture topped off with glinting jewels and bold textures.
Like the design of functional objects such as chairs or tables, it would seem new ideas for the humble door would be completely exhausted, and then along comes Austrian artist Klemens Torggler. This 4-panel entryway called the Evolution Door opens and closes in a surprisingly elegant way at the slightest touch, folding in on itself like pieces of paper. Torggler calls this system a “flip panel door” (Drehplattentür), and it’s almost more of a kinetic sculpture than functional door, but I would be happy to have one in every room of my house. And for those of you who envision a crushed finger or hands, he’s already solved that problem.
Currently the door is meant as a prototype, an extension of his artistic practice where Vienna-based Torggler has been creating similar kinetic doors for many years, several of which are available through Artelier Contemporary.
I do love having my own apartment
