Broken Mirror/Evening Sky is a new series of striking landscape photographs by New York based artist Bing Wright. Departing from his usual pared down images in grey palettes, Wright offers us moving skyscape photographs of richly colored sunsets reflected onto broken mirrors. This new body of work marks his first return to color photography in almost a decade.
The images are meticulously constructed through a combination of traditional documentary landscape photographs and the subtle manipulations of an image in the studio. Wright photographs sunsets, then projects the images onto mirrors he has broken in the studio. The mirrors are small, measuring just 14 x 11 inches. The artist re-photographs the reflection and then enlarges the image into a large scale format. This beautiful series incorporates Wright’s recurring themes of abstraction and representation – a contrast he masterfully balances by grounding these shards of images into a bold structure. While more abstract than some of his earlier works, the composition carries a narrative that enables the viewer to collectively experience the beauty of the sunsets the artist has captured, while facilitating an individual interpretation of the emotion they imbue. We are presented with pictorial images, fragmented and in disrepair – a reminder that everything beautiful is flawed and imperfect. Bing’s signature large format lends these images symmetry and exact composition, giving them a majestic quality. (src. James Harris Gallery)

- A 2 levels bus is transformed to a moving 7 beds hotel. A bed and breakfast space rational is installed in an existing bus structure. This project reconsiders the design of an existing two floor bus. The interior space of the bus is transformed to a hostel room containing 7 beds, a water closet and a living room. The chosen vehicle could be a German bus or whatever other type of 2floor bus with similar dimensions.
Israel’s ethnic cleansing of Palestine is not just history. It’s now.
A Palestinian man starts to demolish his own home to carry out an Israeli court order which ruled that the house was built without a municipality permit, in the east Jerusalem neighbourhood of Shuafat in Palestine.
Israel does not allow Palestinians to build on their own land, while they themselves continue building illegal Jewish settlements on Palestinian land.
Many Palestinians end up demolishing their homes themselves to avoid the high cost of paying for Israeli government bulldozers, or being sent to prison for not being able to pay.
