  • The sujects of Hosokura's photographs are beautiful in the sense that youth makes it easy to be beautiful as are the minerals and the landscapes she tends to capture. 
  • There is a similar tonal range that she sticks to in one composition making it a very simplistic yet beautiful image. I feel that this is why her images evoke a feeling of silence and desolation in a beautiful way. 
  • Photography manages to stop time, so the people and minerals and landscapes that she captures will forever retain that element of youthful beauty. 
  • Her images seem to often tell a story and her images almost act as a gateway into other worlds, real or imagined.

  • His neatly organized pieces remind me of the ikea cookbook containing 140 recipes with the ingredients laid out neatly
  • There is a certain raw quality that allows for easy interpretation which makes the image so engaging
  • I really like the concept of revealing all the components of something as it makes for an intriguing piece//displaying something in a different way allows you to view it in a different perspective

  • The subjects of Hosokura's photographs are beautiful in the sense that youth makes it easy to be beautiful, as are the minerals and the landscapes
  • Photography manages to stop time, so the people and minerals and landscapes in hosokura's photographs will forever be beautiful, youthfully beautiful. 
  • The images she capture are often of the same tonal range creating a very unified image. I feel that this adds towards the feeling of silence and desolation in a beautiful way. 
  • Her images often tell a story, and her images act almost as a gateway to other worlds, real or imagined. 
  • The simplicity of her images adds towards the element of beauty and the pairing of her images often make it more magical and timeless. 
  • The feeling of patience is reflected through her photographs and the element of stillness makes her pieces mesmerizing.

  • Charlotte X. C. Sullivan and Ethan Knechel made these incredible drawings by mixing ink and soapy water. 
  • This is done by mixing ink with washing up liquid or bubble solution and the bubbles are blown onto a piece of paper and eventually they pop and dry on the paper. 
  • I really love all the ghostly grey colours that are left on the page as it creates a somewhat minimalist and simple look that are always very interesting. 
  • Each piece is so unique as the bubbles pop in a different way each time and the same piece can never be recreated again.

  • Infinity mirrored room Tate Modern 2012
  • It consists of a series of mirrors positioned in such a way as to create the illusion of infinity. 
  • It is decorated with countless LED hanging lights that get reflected through the mirrors creating a magical space. 
  • The lights flash on and off in different colour configurations and the lights reflect endlessly in the mirrors leaving the viewer to experience a space that feels almost endless. 
  • Kusuma's interest in infinite, endless vision is evident throughout her body of work.
  • Even the ceilings were mirrored and the floor features a shallow pool of water.

  • He brings new meaning to things from ordering the cosmos to arranging alphabet soup in alphabetical order. 
  • His obsessive deconstruction and reorganization of life's necessary small chaoses is at once utterly delightful and playfully philosophical, reminding us of the quintessential human tendency to seek to bring order to the chaos of life. 
  • Almost as if he is making things in life more ordered giving him more control. 
  • He has now published a book containing images of his neatly arranged pieces. The physical act of flicking through the book maximizes the impact of the images as he includes both the before and after images. 
  • Some of the images contain quite dark humour; e.g. a pond of goldfish becomes a tray of golden fish fingers.
