Dizzying Aerial Compositions of Ultradistancia

photography, architecture

In his “Ultradistancia” series, Buenos Aires-based photographer Federico Winer gives us a birds-eye view of landmark architecture and landscaping. From the aerial perspective, airports, roadways, buildings, and whole neighborhoods blend into massive topographical paintings. From here an observer can be removed from the maze of modern development and placed into the context of form, line and color. Scroll down to see more!

Baitogogo @ the Palais de Tokyo, Paris

A new installation at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, this gigantic Gordian Knot was constructed by Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira also known for his organic transformations of interior and exterior spaces. Titled Baitogogo, the work depicts an architectural grid of columns and support beams that seem to morph into a chaotic tangle of branches or roots. Via http://news.upperplayground.com

Through a kind of architectural anthropomorphism, Henrique Oliveira reveals the building’s structure. At Palais de Tokyo, he plays on the space’s existing and structuring features, prolonging and multiplying pillars in order to endow them with a vegetable and organic dimension, as though the building were coming alive. The artist draws inspiration from medical textbooks, amongst others, and particularly from studies of physical pathologies such as tumors. Through a formal analogy, these outgrowths evoke the outermost layers of the bark of a common tree.

Installation will be in view through September 9th, 2013. Photos by André Morin. (via dark silence in suburbia)
