Settlements and City Strategies by Lekan Jeyifous
This series contains abstracted planimetric drawings and eerily-serene cityscapes that suggest the changing contours of urban settlements. They represent an idea of a degenerate futurism, yet one might find similar typologies and scenes in places such as the favelas of Brazil and North Africa, and in overpopulated cities such as Lagos, Mexico City, and Mumbai. Though outputted digitally, the drawings possess a textured and painterly quality as a result of combining hand-drawn sketches, industrial textures, surfaces of deteriorated paper, and digital architectural models.
A constant interplay between digital and analog processes is important in my work, resulting in a highly layered set of documents. The drawings presented here started out as digital images that were outputted, sketched and drawn over, and scanned back into the computer in order to be retraced, textured, and layered
Originally made for the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum, this installation covered two buildings in holographic panels that shifted color once lasers were reflected off it, creating a dazzling array of invisible light pyrotechnics.

Christopher Bucklow - Guests (2005)
“Solar pin-hole photographs of luminous silhouettes, for which the technical process is a cross between photography and drawing.
Strongly influenced by Carl Jung’s theory of the Anima and Animus, the idea of the repressed parts of the psyche feature repeatedly throughout Bucklow’s work.”

China Danxia is a UNSECO World Heritage Site and the name given in China to landscapes developed on continental red terrigenous sedimentary beds influenced by endogenous forces (including uplift) and exogenous forces (including weathering and erosion). The inscribed site comprises six areas found in the sub-tropical zone of south-west China.
They are characterized by spectacular red cliffs and a range of erosional landforms, including dramatic natural pillars, towers, ravines, valleys and waterfalls. These rugged landscapes have helped to conserve sub-tropical broad-leaved evergreen forests, and host many species of flora and fauna, about 400 of which are considered rare or threatened.
Below you will find an incredible gallery of these painted landscapes in Southern China along with additional information from UNESCO about China Danxia. Enjoy!

When Neuroscience becomes art.
Neuroanatomy and neuroscience were never so interesting, especially when you don’t have to “visualize” them on an atlas, but you can admire their beauty and perfect organization in an Asian sumi-e style.
These paintings represent, in order:
- Synaptogenesis - Formation of synapses between neurons, cells electrically excitable, that allows information’s transmission.
- Hippocampus - Important part of the limbic system, correlated to the consolidation of information from short-term memory to long-term memory. In Alzheimer’s disease, it is the main region of the brain to suffer damage and waste.
- Retina - A light-sensitive layer of the eye, with neurons interconnected by synapses.
- Cortex - The outer surface layer of the cerebrum, composed of gray matter. It is so advanced in humans that it is organized in “gyri”, achieving maximum mass with minimum volume. Cortex develops memory, attention, thought, language and consciousness.
Neuroscience art is realized by Greg Dunn.

Day and Night by Owen Silverwood
The natural transition from bright to dark throughout the day continues its eternal progression in the transparent sphere of Owen Silverwood’s design, represented by an abstract fluid that undulates beneath the tempest of change.
