好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 36 : Secondhand store, vintage objects in Hong Kong

好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 36 : Secondhand store, vintage objects in Hong Kong
 


嘢冷 :: 嘢冷係一間乜嘢都有嘅夜冷。 
A #second-hand #antiques #deadstock shop G28, no.129 Connaught road west, Sai Ying Pun, HK

Emmaus type secondhand store, vintage objects...
Shumshuipo, DaiPo street

Take any object from shops like this, and write a small entry on the object.
Observation, record, connotations, why it was created if it were a mass production object.  If its a singular, unique object, what purpose might it have served.

好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 35 : Peanut cast playing Dream of Red Chamber

 好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 35 : Peanut cast playing Dream of Red Chamber in Chinese ink painting story book.

Mixed culture, mixed media.  Charming to the tip of your fingers! 

史努比从不说话,有种冷眼旁观的哲人味道,如果它带着它的伙伴们来到古代的中国,吟诗作 对、走马观花、思考狗生又会如何呢?如果他们也住到《红楼梦》中的大观园,作诗结社,观菊赏梅……不是书评君的脑洞太大,一位名叫“寒花”的豆瓣网友已经 把查尔斯·舒尔茨的《花生漫画》搬到了中国古代,搬到了“红楼萌”,情节设计与漫画相关,我们依稀能看到原作中熟悉的故事。古朴的造型搭配诗意的文字,史 努比、史努比的秘书小鸟糊涂塌、主人查理·布朗和他的朋友,史努比的哥哥史派克,一同绘就了属于他们的“花生诗意图”。

Peanuts characters re-enacts Dream of Red Chamber, very charming and the narrative works too.

V gd ink drawings.  V delicate brush strokes.
Just the right amount of children story innocence+ink drawing+dreamlike sequences
I also like the naming of the tableaux.

In fact, Chinese inkpaintings with captions were always slightly "single frame" text and image pictures.
Beautiful!

好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 33 : vintage photo collage and comments generator

好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 33 : vintage photo collage and comments generator


http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/eugenia-loli-collages
California-based collage artist Eugenia Loli fuses vintage photographs to create fantastically surreal compositions. Her colorful scenes often depict people in strange lands that conjure vivid dreams, where outer space is just outside our window and entire cityscapes are at the bottom of a cave. In essence, they seem to communicate a feeling of wanderlust as subjects experience new places. Loli wasn’t always an artist. She originated in the technology sector, but left it behind in order to make these new, visually-exciting worlds. Her collages start with a “base” image, and it’s used as a way to develop an entire piece. “Most of the time,” she writes, “I try to ‘say’ something important via my art, but other times it’s just about doodling.” Loli sees her work as a still frame of a surreal movie and invites viewers to make up the plot. Phone cases, shower curtains, tote bags, and other products featuring Loli’s collages are all for sale in her various shops.

好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 31 : Rube Goldberg Machine

 好奇藝術 Kunstkammer 31 : Rube Goldberg Machine




Rube Goldberg Machine 
There are many variants of the concept, some are more interesting than others. 
The simplest is Domino - but a lot of them are not so interesting.
There are artists created Machines, which transforms ice, vapor, water, different physical aspects of the motion.

Below is a good example of a Machine with enough variant to make it interesting to watch.
