By Ágústa Sveinsdóttir, in this industrial, contemporary collection of jewellery from a graduating student of the Iceland Academy of the Arts, the whole collection features dust as a vital element. Making the viewer consider the value that we place on materials and transforming waste to something precious.
Hikari’s pastel colored work features horned children with stars in their eyes and scars on their necks, that are painted in a style reminiscent of Manga and Anime, as metaphorical essays on the fragile mortality of human life. These ideas have been influenced by such occurrences as the Fukushima Reactor and Chernobyl disasters.
I had the chance to ask the very gifted and outstanding artist a few questions about her work, thoughts on eyes, and beliefs behind “Fantastic Planet, Goodbye Man" which you can read below (And also see more paintings and studio shots!):

Alfonso Batalla (b.1958, Spain) - Prefabricated life
Capturing abandoned buildings in a complete state of disrepair, spanish artist Alfonso Batalla has photographed them for the Prefabricated life series. The images reveal a city that has been uninhabited since 1986, with the apartments left to crumble since they were initially conceived. Depicting an eerie atmosphere, the work is the result of two different trips, both in winter and autumn to achieve variation in the lighting. The rooms expose floors that bend, painted cracking walls, and paper falling across the spaces at random, showing the decoration and remnants of families that once lived there. (src. Designboom)
