exploring the notions of landscape in the broadest sense of the term, brooklyn-based artist
shane mcadams creates abstract paintings from ink extracted from ball-point pens. the body of work
focuses on the often dueling relationships between natural and synthetic forms, illustrating through
process the phenomenon of elemental forces incrementally sculpting a land over time.

displaying a soft and colourful array of tones, the pieces push the boundaries of ballpoint pen ink
through a series of non-traditional applications: once extracted, the liquid is heated and mixed
with solvents before it is applied to the surface. mcadams does not 'draw' in the conventional sense
but rather lets gravity, wind, and other physical forces direct the movement of the ink.
resembling a chromatography test, subtle gradients and unexpected streaks emerge to create
a ghostly multi-toned image. by allowing the painting to, in essence, come to being by itself,
it forces the viewers to question what is organic and what is artificial.

bike wheel animation by katy beveridge




katy beveridge creates animations by the spinning of paper cutouts fixed inside the wheels of a bicycle


by assembling paper cutouts into the wheels of bicycles, london-based graphic designer katy beveridge
creates a zoetrope-- the spinning devices that typically produce the illusion of a moving animation from a series of static pictures.

interestingly, this zoetrope effect can only captured on film; to the naked eye, the movement of the wheels
occurs too quickly and is perceived as a blur. captured frame by frame, however, beveridge's snowflake-like designs
produce captivating animated visual effects that mimic bobbling gears, growing plumes, and other abstract forms.
