The modified books and the paper sculptures of Noriko Ambe are made with precision and sensitivity... Inhabited works...

''So to speak, I have been mapping the mysterious land between physical and emotional geography. I want to attain something sublime. The entrance of the way is detail. The detail is the key point of nature, and we are part of nature. Even though the actions are simple, I do not try to draw / cut mechanical or perfect lines in my work, for subtle natural distortions convey the nuances of human emotions, habits, or biorhythm. For this reason, I take care to make all works by hand.'' From artist website

Nando, Naoshima Standard 2, 2006, Photos Takumi Ota

''Based on these criteria, we decided to use white traffic cones for all of the signs. We also wanted to send a subtle message with them, so we added a hand touch to each and every one of them. When we put lights in some of the cones, irregularities in the metal molds used to make gave them a soft glow like light shining through Japanese handmade paper. We placed 625 of these cones at the ferry dock in Miyaura, the main entrance to the island. Once an hour, the cones are triggered by the waves, and programmed to light up to welcome visitors.''

Nendo, Illoiha Omotesando, 2006, Photos Daici Ano

''To express the original brand concept of "becoming beautiful through movement", we chose the theme "rock-climbing on Omotesando" and developed a design that uses the mismatch between a rugged outdoor sport and Tokyo's fashion district to its advantage. Instead of the usual rough and outdoorsy climbing wall, we came up with the idea of using interior design elements like picture frames, mirrors, deer heads, bird cages and flower vases to create a challenging wall with hard-to-find holds and unusual finger grips.''

Nendo, Fireworks house, 2005, photos Daici Ano

''We designed a house that let her see the fireworks from inside. We concentrated the plumbing and other utilities in the centre of the first floor, and surrounded them with living space in a wheelchair-accessible open plan.''

Anthony Gormley

Anthony Gormley, Clearing V New Works Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, USA, 2005

''I was trying to destroy the fixed co-ordinates of a room and make a space/ time continuum (a line without end) that was both a thing and a drawing. The work consists of up to 7 kilometres of raw metal rod that arcs from floor to ceiling and wall to wall, creating a three-dimensional drawing in space. '' From artist website

Anthony Gormley, Feeling Material II 2003 Rolled mild steel hoops various diameters 204 x 150 x 165 cm

Anthony Gormley, Feeling Material IV 2003 Rolled mild steel hoops various diameters 208 x 162 x 150 cm

''The Feeling Material works started with an attempt to describe the space of the body using a matrix formed of orbits. The rings were made from tubes cut to the same width as the wall thickness of the tube. As the tubes became larger, this process became increasingly impractical.'' From artist website

Jade Pegler

J'aime le travail de Jade Pegler pour la matière et les valeurs de gris. Magnifique!
I like the work of Pegler Jade for the matter and the value of gray. Spendid!

''Jade Pegler’s work with paper and textiles combines a range of techniques including papiermache, bookbinding, hand and machine stitching, collage and origami. Jade lives in a flat in Wollongong which is overcrowded with works-in-progress and the things she collects for her art. She works in a studio nearby which is also full of stuff.'' From her website

Theo Janson

Theo Janson, Animaris

Les sculptures vivantes de Theo Janson sont facinantes...
The alive sculptures of Theo Janson are facinating...

"Theo Jansen, artist, studied science at the University of Delft Holland. The first seven years being a artist he just made paintings. Then he starts a project with a big flying saucer, which could really fly. It flew over the town of Delft in 1980 and brought the people in the street and the police in commotion. Since about ten years he is occupied with the making of a new nature. Not pollen or seeds but plastic yellow tubes are used as the basic matierial of this new nature. He makes skeletons which are able to walk on the wind. Eventualy he wants to put these animals out in herds on the beaches, so they will live their own lives." From artist page
