"Sorry, that’s me. My super power. (Still love saying that.) Basically I’m sort of a living scalpel? I can take people apart—not in a violent way, mind, more so’s I can put them back together again…”

MY OWN personal scans from the posters I OWN..! these are promo posters for when Generation X was to debut in 1995..! (unfortunately, the second image/scan has a very noticeable crease mark on WHO of course? yeah - Jubilee. sucks. maybe one day i’ll try to edit it in microsoft paint (since i don’t own photoshop and that would be the best i could do anyway).
Loved this series so much.
Brazilian artist Henrique Oliveira (previously) recently completed work on his largest installation to date titled Transarquitetônica at Museu de Arte Contemporânea da Universidade in São Paulo. As with much of his earlier sculptural and installation work the enormous piece is built from tapumes, a kind of temporary siding made from inexpensive wood that is commonly used to obscure construction sites. Oliveira uses the repurposed wood pieces as a skin nailed to an organic framework that looks intentionally like a large root system. Because the space provided by the museum was so immense, the artist expanded the installation into a fully immersive environment where viewers are welcome to enter the artwork and explore the cavernous interior. Transarquitetônica will be on view through the end of November this year, and you can watch the video above by Crane TV to hear Oliveira discuss its creation.
