I know that there is a much deeper meaning behind these pieces of work, but honestly, this brings me back to my childhood days of pretending sticks and stones were guns and grenades. Alright enough reminiscing, artist Sonia Rentsch used completely organic objects to create these “Harm Less” weapons. Pretty cool idea. Check out her website here.
Graphic Designer Ben Barrett-Forrest created this animated short about the history of fonts and typography using 291 Paper Letters and 2,454 Photographs.

We’ve featured a few of these pieces in the Dopeness before. I recently found out that artist Rashad Alakbarov was the genius behind these creations. Rashad uses suspended objects and materials to create paintings on walls out of light and shadows. I really want to get one of these in my house.
Artist and Photographer Romain Jacquet-Lagreze recently ventured to Hong Kong for his latest series of work, “Veritcal Horizon.” Romain was able to create unique series of photos of the cities architecture by viewing viewing skyscrapers, tunnels, and interiors from the bottommost perspective. All of these photographs have been collected and can be found in Romain’s book which features hundreds of these photographs.
Photographer Matt Molloy created his “Smeared Sky” series by stacking timelapse photos from various times of the day on top of each other. Each of these images consists of around 100-200 images that have been layered together to created the smeared sky effect. Pretty dope.
ROOK just released this new video detailing the inspiration behind their 2013 Spring/Summer collection. Judging by the video, ROOK decided to get back to the basics when designing their latest collection. Watercolors, colored pencils, and even crayons were all used throughout the design process. It’s cool to take a look into the inspiration behind a collection. Often times, we only see the finished product.
