Adam Magyar, poète des mégalopoles

Adam Magyar est un artiste berlinois passionné des sujets urbains. En effet, il ne cesse dans son travail d’aborder nos modes de vie de citadin: la mégalopole, une existence les uns sur les autres. Une proximité peu naturelle que nous impose l’urbanisme, nos emplois « à la ville ».

On ne peut pas ne pas parler de la proxémie d’Edward T. Hall. Cet éminent Anthropologue parle des différentes distances séparant les êtres en fonction de l’intimité ou non pouvant subsister entre eux. Ces distances physiques évoluent selon les cultures et les contextes. Il dégage différentes sphères telles que la sphère intime, la personnelle ou encore la sociale et la publique. Elles varient entre 15 cm et plus de 3,6 m. Le modèle de la mégalopole que nous connaissons nous impose sa proximité avec les trottoirs, les transports en commun ainsi que les ascenseurs. Je ne vous parle pas des terrasses parisiennes.

Au-delà de l’intimité subie par ces citadins qui ne se connaissent même pas, il semble qu’A. Magyar observe la foule comme une structure d’individus liés par un objectif commun comme le simple fait de prendre le même métro. Ce lien n’est pas si désuet, il rassemble et créé la foule, la masse et la nomme par son but.

Cette communion d’individualités peut être artificielle car reconstituée à travers le projet Square, où les sujets sont pris en photo un par un et composés en foule numériquement. Puis, à travers le fascinant projet Stainless (vidéo à droite), la foule est tout ce qu’il y a de plus réelle. Le slowmotion inscrit la scène dans une poésie du quotidien, une véritable restitution d’un moment de communion aussi banal soit-il.

À travers son travail, l’artiste nous offre une nouvelle dimension à la street photography, même à la frontière entre la vidéo et la photographie, c’est un moment unique de la vie urbaine en face duquel le spectateur est à la fois voyeur et identifié comme possible acteur de la scène.

Amazing Slo-Mo Film Turns Straphangers Into Living Sculptures

In Stainless, filmmaker Adam Magyar decelerates time and makes idle commuters look like works of art. And you thought your commute was slow.

City subway rides can feel like $2 carnivals. There's so much to see, and often so little time to see it--crowds move as fast as colonies of ants. In a time-warping video series called Stainless, Berlin-based photographer Adam Magyar slows down the speedy city crowd. Using a customized Optronis slow-motion camera, Magyar shoots footage from arriving trains to create high-res, super-slow motion videos of people waiting on platforms in Grand Central station in New York, the Alexanderplatz station in Berlin, and the Shinjuku station in Tokyo.

Human Sculptures Made from Stainless Steel Ribbons by Gil Bruvel

Gil Bruvel a
Texas based artist, is the creator of these remarkable stainless steel sculptures. Though I’m not sure exactly how these are made, it appears that he molds the shape initially using clay or a plaster and then casts the form in stainless steel.

…with each ribbon, the eye bends, curves, assembles, deforms, and traces the edges of each subject. The ribbons direct my emotions and creative flow with a force like I have never felt before. The smaller ones are subtle-the larger ones are essential, but they all flow together to create one being. The multiple patterns of the lines effectively illustrate the multifaceted parts of what makes us human.

Product designers Tal Margalit and Ellia Nattel join forces to become Tickette.
This design duo aims to offer unique products from a different point of view.

They have launched two main collections – Word Charm and Doodle Jewelry.

The first collection, Word Charm, is made of words that literally define the jewelry. The duo used text to create the actual pieces of the jewelry, so for example the pendant on a necklace is comprised of the word “necklace” and its meaning.

The second collection — Doodle Jewelry — captures the spirit and lightness of hand drawn doodles and transforms them into fine jewelry.

All of the pieces are made and designed by Tickette in stainless steel, silver or gold plated or color coated in black or red.
