I Have 60 Seconds to get you on My Side

Here you will find images of some of my favorite things - items that I find particularly interesting, bizarre, and just plain wonderful.

7 Sculptures Can Pekdemir
"As in music and also in painting, the fact is not to reproduce or invent, it is to capture the forces." - Gilles Deleuze

7 Sculptures is a project dealing with virtual figures deformed by the photographs’ location and time data. A standard human figure is deformed using algorithmically generated images. These images which are called procedurals are mostly used for creating realistic texture maps for 3D models and every procedural map kind has its’ own parameters. In this project the numeric input of the parameters and kind of procedural maps are determined by the photographs’ location(longitude, latitude) and time data(H:M:S, D.M.Y taken from EXIF). Using the black and white value of the images generated, a base human model’s vertices were displaced.

Using algorithms for every input of a procedural, unique virtual sculptures were (de)formed.”

"The major challenge in this project was to create an architecture with its own identity in one of Stockholm’s most important cultural environments that yields to the existing historic urban fabric. The starting point of the proposal was to create a building that in scale and design is perceived as furniture/sculpture instead of a traditional building.”

Well Deserved Swim
A swimming pool awaits intrepid travellers in the middle of the Mojave Desert. The 11x5ft secret oasis is located in south-eastern California and was built by Austrian visual artist Alfredo Barsuglia. The free retreat includes a solar-powered filter and chlorination system, but visitors face a challenge to get there if they want to take a dip.
