Pippilotti Rist is such a cool artist. I was totally blowen away.

 At the moment there is a big exhibition at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen with eight recent works and two new works made specially for the museum. A fluid world of video image, soundtracks and objects in a 1500m2 installation that will immerse you.

I love the transparency of this chair.

Tom Price created these chairs by heating and pressing a seat-shaped form into a bundle of crumpled polypropylene sheets, polyester clothing and other products. 
These form a seriers of chairs using the same technique but with different materials.

PIG 05049
Christien Meindertsma has spent the last three years researching all the products made from a single pig. Amongst some of the more unexpected resutlts were: Ammunition, medicine, photo paper, heart valves, brakes, chewing gum, porcelian, cosmetics, cigarettes, conditioner and even bio diesel.
Meindertsma makes the subject more approachable by reducing everything to the scale of one animal. After it's death, Pig number 05049 was shipped in parts throughout the world. some products remain close to their original form and function while others diverge dramatically. In an alsmost surgical way a pig is dissected in the pages of the book - resulting in a starteling photo book where all the products are shown at their true scale (1:1).
