Venetian images from LA based photographer Mona Kuhn. Born in Brazil with German parents, Mona’s work is mainly figurative but seems to take studies of the surrounding landscape during shoots. I really like these semi submerged photographs of the Venetian waterways. Mona Kuhn is represented by the Flowers Gallery in London and New York, and you can find more work on her site below.
A Tree house that’s for the Birds by Japanese design studio Nendo. The tree house is located in a forest in Komoro City in Japan’s mountainous Nagano Prefecture and contains 78 separate spaces for birds to nest while providing accommodation for the ornithological enthusiast to have an auld snoop. There’s a mammoth amount of great furniture and product design from Nendo on their site but do check out the exhibition they did with Philips de Pury in the Saatchi Gallery, London in 2011 entitled ‘Think Black Lines’.
Deadly little video by Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond aka NOTsoNOISY and Trivial Mass Production. Together with a group of 110 people at the University of Health Sciences in Switzerland they turned the facade of their building into an analog 10 x 11 display turning the sliding shutters and window opes into pixels. The results are worth a watch.
