Spatial object sculptures by Michael Johansson
At the mere mention of the word Tetris, the game’s catchy electro song begins blaring in our heads. Artist Michael Johansson’s precisely stacked sculptures made from ordinary objects induce the same internal Nintendo soundtrack. Using found objects like old computer screens, keyboards, cars and suitcases, the Swedish designer creates incredible geometric sculptures - both inside the gallery and jammed into site-specific space

Different salt percentages within the waters causes different densities, resulting in a difficulty to mix, similar to oil and water.
The New World Geebird & Bamby
“”The New World" revisits anonymous places of the 20th century. It is set in a time characterized by the conflict of Modernist and Postmodernist convictions, its influence on later 20th century history, and ultimately, the world we live in today.
On a formal level, this conflict defines the aesthetics of the collection. The interrelation of rational graphic design and anonymous photorealism reflects the contrast of manmade ideals and the acceptance of life in chaos. “The New World" is shaped by an original set of rules, metrics and processes. This enables the revelation of eclectic utopias that, for better or worse, withhold the definition of a photograph."
