Street Art On Cast Acrylic Block

We newly found these amazing street art works in an art gallery in Milan: The artist, SnakeReverse told us that they are made with stencils on cast acrylic blocks. The works are “stenciled” on the back of the block, so that its thickness create a third dimension effect. This unique and unusual technique looks great. We hope to discover more about this artist. In the meanwhile, enjoy…

The satellite collection

The artist Jenny Odell creates art works out of Google Earth ©. Baseball fields, swimming pools and parking areas are some of her themes. She deals with details of our every-day environment which she cuts out of a satellite view and pastes them in new masterpieces. Jenny Odell looks the world throughout the satellite and makes a connection between the virtual reality and the real life.

She names her works “The Satellite Collection”: It’s a kind of “a top down view” in which she pieces together terrestrial images like a mosaic to express feelings like vulnerability, nostalgia and smallness. In this way, a modern web technology gets a new  aesthetic and becomes art.

The light-cement

The light-cement is a compact cut stone of cement which is produced in blocks. The material is called Litracon (Light Transmitting Concrete). The aesthetics is really unique because of the light-transmissive surface it has. It is possible to see colored scale, colored light and forms too. Since September 2006 is realized a series production with a particular stuff for a new manufacturing process.

The first experiment that would combine cement and transparency was started by Mrs. Sabine Theiskrömer at the university in Germany at the beginning of the nineties.

Facades, stairs, ground floors and casings inspire creative people’s imagination. The purpose is to produce bigger sizes in the future given that light-cement represents the solution for designer, planner and architects in cooperation with substructure executive producers. The light-cement is one of the last discoveries of our time.

Shoes made of acrylic glass

Acrylic glass is one of the greatest discoveries of 20th   century. The applications of this material, like interior decorations, facades, design objects, hand rails or roofs, give a new style to everyday life. The transparency, the brilliancy and the stability of acrylic glass are guaranteed for years.

Acrylic glass has been used by fashion designers, too since 1941. During this period a world competitive fashion show was organized in Frankfurt. Shoes for women with bench made of acrylic glass were presented; they had to indicate a new type of woman. The exclusive design model was thought only for the high society because it represented luxuriousness and elegance. Margarethe Klimt was one of the most famous fashion designers at the time.

Nowadays, stylists like PRADA or FENDI design shoes with acrylic plateau and acrylic bench and complete their exclusive shoes range with elaborated acrylic designs. The new trend is successful and many stylists design a new line of shoes adding acrylic benches in order to valorize the product.
