Pegboards has a new function for me now after seeing this embroidered wall decor created by multi-disciplinary design studio, Tripasai Architect. The wall is a series of tiny dots embroidered with colorful cotton yarn in rhomboidal shapes transforming into leaves and flowers. The walls enhance the entry lobby of a Bangkok private residence.

This colorful geometric floor pattern aptly entitled, “Here I Am”, was created by Dutch painter, George Korsmit. It was commissioned for the Regional Training Center in Almelo, Netherlands. Much of the artist’s paintings, sculptures and installations are built up of irregular patches of color whose arrangements are determined by control and chance. It makes for a hypnotizing effect which is what the artist aims for in his work.

Dazzled by these large-scale floor installations created by Dutch artist, Suzan Drummen. The complex patterns are composed of crystals, mirrors, precious stones, chrome metal and optical glass. Much of the wall creations are usually pinned but the elements for the floor display are often placed loosely making the artwork unguarded. She says this regarding the installations:
“When you see a space in a convex lens, you will see this space differently. In many convex lenses together, however, the space becomes staggering. The reflections can no longer be ‘read’ by the eyes. Automatically the eyes focus differently in an attempt to see the whole. This moment of simultaneously grasping and not grasping I am constantly studying. The material helps me doing this.”
“Looking I find the most beautiful, comforting and intense activity there is, one I’d like to share with other people. Perhaps I’m on a kind of mission: I would like others to be more aware of their own looking.”
