Grandkids Get Creative
Today — Every day — is for sharing. Sometimes I’m not up to it, other days I’m buzzing around like a bee with pollen. Today is a pollen day.
I’d like to share some of my blogger friends’ finished artwork. I enjoy following them, and I really appreciate their efforts to bring beauty into the world. I know I might miss some, but that share is for another day. Take a look — follow the links — and enjoy their work for yourself.
Seeing the same four walls
in this endless
but imagining far fields……………
There must be a number of silent masks around
Yesterday an old mask flew away at the speed of sound
From behind, the real pieces of what we perceive……………
the flowers’ shadows
write their own poem
on the book’s pages
i will love you
in the silence of your reflection
in the echoes of your pain………………………….
Painting // passing time
Waiting for Summer release
Ready for a hug
Katerina Kamprani‘s redesigns formerly useful everyday objects in her series. Uncomfortable
The goal was to re-design useful objects making them uncomfortable but usable and maintain the semiotics of the original item.
“a collection of deliberately inconvenient everyday objects,” adding that “it exists in sketches and 3-D visualizations and has no meaningful purpose.” Uncomfortable
Kamprani first started the project for no apparent reason other than she wanted to design something, and making things uncomfortable was challenging and amusing to her.
“My project is very carefully designed to annoy — it feeds from the design of each original object and makes a little joke.”
“I am hoping it is not in the list of ‘another badly designed object’ but in the list of extraordinary deliberately badly designed object(s).”
She is an architect and does the work of a rational engineer by day. By night, she is a design enthusiast, interested both in graphic and product design.
