  • Pilgrimage on Modernity | Xavier Delory | Via & nnmprv
Design is constantly contemplating the ways in which it can transcend time, reflecting the values of the current generation while suggesting possibilities for the future. In response, each building, product, and every other creation is an attempt to convey a pristine image, with innovative materials and unprecedented gestures that show no signs of aging. Providing more commentary on the subject, visual artist Xavier Delory has asked ‘what remains of the utopias and the promises of a better future promised by the modern movement at the beginning of the 20th century?’ 
The photoshopped series of images are a tribute to architectural monuments around the world. The first stopover is ‘Villa Savoye’ and its creator Le Corbusier, one of the founding fathers of the modern movement. The iconic structure has been ransacked and vandalized. The ribbon windows that navigate its perimeter have been shattered, haphazard strokes of paint ornament its pilotis, and large pieces of graffiti cover its stark white free façade. The manipulations intend to make a statement about the ‘five points of architecture’, and in turn, highlight the death of modernity.

  • Here Be Dragons | Christopher McCurtin | Tumblr | The Draftery
The method for constructing the drawings was developed as a direct connection and reflection of the partnering research topics, applying three progressing stages of communication and evaluation. Each drawing would begin as a series of small, sporadic sketches, each dealing with a either an Objective or Subjective interpretation of the research, site and/or spatial requirements. These sketches were then gradually combined, via a series of compositional explorations, reworkings and sketch ‘curations’. In the final stage, these were then reimagined as a single stream of consciousness, synergising each of the ideas and explorations into a cohesive architectural proposal.
The earlier stages of the drawings would take place over a series of days or weeks, often emerging from the immediate exploration of ideas, intuitions or research tangents. As these progressed, the drawing cycles become progressively more focused and linear, with the final stage occurring in as few ‘sittings’ as possible.

  • Exobiotanica | Makoto Azuma | Via
Tokyo based artist Makoto Azuma, for his latest project titled “Exobiotanica”, teamed with Sacramento-based JP Aerospace - a volunteer-based organization that constructs and sends vessels into orbit, to launch a Japanese white pine bonsai and an arrangement of flowers into the stratosphere. Using Styrofoam and a very light metal frame, the team created two devices to attach the 50-year-old bonsai and the flowers, which were then launch separately using Helium balloons. Azuma attached still cameras and six Go Pro video cameras tied in a ball to record the trip into the stratosphere.
”I wanted to see the movement and beauty of plants and flowers suspended in space,” Azuma later explained T Magazine. After both pieces went up, Azuma embraced his team warmly and smiled. “I always wanted to travel to space,” he said. “This is a dream come true.”
