A deep diving artist duo creates amazing underwater art from marine trash

There's no missing the message behind the work of scuba diving artists Mathieu Goussin and Hortense Le Calvez. The creative duo's flowing, underwater sculptures made of common oceanic trash make a direct statement on the issue of marine pollution. Goussin and Le Calvez call themselves Forlane 6, after the 40 year-old sailboat they call home. Both are deep sea diving professionals who earn their......read more

Paper Collages Evoke Underwater Beauty

Trippy collages made with textured rolls of paper

Psychedelic formations of rolled up paper are the beautiful result of artist Amy Eisenfeld Genser's obsession with paper and color.  My Modern Met profiled Amy's work and we're glad they did.  Although her final work appears quite abstract, Genser always starts out with an idea for a piece by using images and sketches and also drawing upon the beautiful imperfections of nature as......read more

Mark Tipple: The Underwater Project

A turtle's eye view of swimmers and surfers in the ocean

Aussie surfer and photographer Mark Tipple has always been fascinated by what goes on beneath the surface of the sea. As an escape from his regular documentary photography practice, Tipple began shooting swimmers and surfers from under the surface of the ocean off Australia's eastern coast. The results are assembled in the ongoing Tipple series, "The Underwater Project," and they're some of the......read more

Christy Lee Rogers: Reckless Unbound

Seriously beautiful underwater photos

Blurring the distinction between contemporary photography and painting, this new selection of photos from Christy Lee Rogers captures a barrage of bodies being submerged in tropical Hawaiian waters at night. The images show a mastery of the chiaroscuro qualities of light, recalling the classic Rubens masterpiece, Massacre of the Innocents. With the subjects bent and distorted, bathed......read more

Weekly links: Surfrider celebrates 150th victory, photography heads undersea, and Russian nature art is nuts.

Shouts out to Jim Moriarty and Surfrider Foundation. In 2005, the coastal conservation group set a goal for 150 "coastal victories" by 2010. They defined a coastal victory as “a decision made in favor of the coastal and ocean environment that results in a positive conservation outcome, improves coastal access, or both.” On December 1, they nailed it. Kudos, Surfrider. (via QPeeps)......read more

Seabed Sculptures by Jason deCaires Taylor

Artist collaborates with coral to create underwater museum

Jason de Caires Taylor's underwater sculptures serve a dual purpose. Not only do the figures and busts attract human admirers, but they also serve as habitat for marine life. Constructed from concrete and steel, the sculptures are bolted to the ocean floor where they act as artifical reefs that offer "an ideal habitat for filter feeding organisms."   The British artist's various......read more

Art exhibition in Copenhagen explores the interesection of art, culture and global warming.

I recently met Beth Terry, the author of a great blog on plastic pollution called Fake Plastic Fish (the definitive resource on our culture’s obsession with plastics) at a very sobering event – the return from an expedition to Midway Island with photographer Chris Jordan, who traveled there with a film crew to document the “plastic graveyard.” Midway is literally “midway” from......read more

Ars Natura: Genesis

read
In his inaugural SHFT post, Karl Burkart explains why the hell a renowned green-tech blogger is writing a column on art and nature.

This is the first in a series I’m writing for SHFT called Ars Natura: art in nature, nature in art. Though I typically blog abut media and technology I have become increasingly aware that the problems our civilization faces are not going to be solved by technological ingenuity alone. Yes I believe we can solve the energy problem and perhaps even find a way to deflate the planet’s overheated......read more

Ars Natura: Lea Turto

Finnish artist's felted trees unlock the mystical past of her homeland.

The Finns are a thoroughly modern people. They are world-famous for their uber-modern design aesthetic and are wont to include any historical references of any sort in their architecture or design. And while the country revels in its modern history, it is next to impossible to find any information on the ancient roots of the Finnish people. In contrast to Norway and Sweden, Finland is not......read more
