Given the sudden break in the weather (at least in the northeast), we thought it fitting to feature this mesmerizing series by New Jersey-based photographer Michael Massaia. We’ve all been there before, when the mood goes from delight to distress when you drop your ice cream on the ground, only to watch it slowly melt into oblivion. Massaia taps into the latter sensation with his Transmogrify still life photos. There is something captivating about the swirling remnants of Spider-Man and Dora the Explorer. Massaia not only captures interesting patterns and colors with these pieces, but he also awakens memories of summers past through these abstract, yet vaguely recognizable forms.

London-based artist and sculptor Livia Marin’s melted porcelain series, Nomad Patterns, looks like a first-class exercise in Photoshop. In reality, these intriguing sculptures are physical pieces that appear to be melting into puddles. What’s really special, though, is that the intricate decorations flow into the puddles as well. In her own words, Marin describes the concept behind this superb series: “In a culture increasingly dominated by habits of consuming and discarding, Nomad Patterns interrogates the boundaries between the attention given to precious or elite artifacts and the lack of thought afforded to the mass production of utilitarian objects.”
