The creation of seamless patterns of complex wallpapers has always been sort of fascinating to us in general. Icelandic graphic designer Siggi Eggertsson takes this process to a whole other level with one of his latest projects, titled SKVÍS. The installation is actually a series of eight modular posters (for sale here) configured in many different combinations to create an overstimulating visual masterpiece (with some rather trippy undertones). From the exhibitor: “This beauty of infinity is always present in Siggi´s work. This may be related to methods for expanding ones mind, whether by use of substances or meditation as used by hippies to glimpse a different world which is not a reflection of our own world, but a world within. That world has godesses floating about, as can be seen in Siggi Eggertsson´s representation of a world few of us have visited.”

Artist Andrew Mowbray is walking a line between science and sculpture with his latest works. Mowbray cultivates Lagenaria gourds (in the Squash family) to grow in a cube, and therefore take on that shape. Gourds are are easily dried and made into vessels because they become so hard (almost like wood), and Mowbray also forms cement and plaster units to be stacked with the gourds. “The gourd is a living plant that can be grown and molded into a predetermined, structural unit that can then be used to create formal sculpture, functional design, or architecture,” Mowbray explains.
