Who hasn’t gone on a trip and felt like they had left something behind? In September, to celebrate the city of Marseille’s status as the European Capital of Culture 2013, French artist Bruno Catalano displayed ten life-size, figurative sculptures at the port of Marseille. Inspired by travel, his surreal bronze sculptures represent a world citizen who’s in search of his or her own missing pieces.
Huge chunks of their bodies seem to be completely left out as visitors are left scratching their heads as to how these sculptures can exactly stand on their own. Love how you can see right through them and how these figures photograph differently depending on the angle or their surroundings.
The first floor of the dormitory in University of Seoul was originally an empty parking lot. An area enclosed by columns that supported the main office of the building, people would use the area only for smoking and storing bikes. The place was far too dark and inefficient and further desperately needed to be remodeled. In collaboration, the architectural students of the University of Seoul (Lee Sang-myeong, Ha Ki-seong, Baek Jong-ho) and UTAA designed a solution that would become much more than a simple rest area.
