NON-SITE Anique Azhar In the course of an architecture practice, it is revealed that when one is simultaneously needed to navigate creative, practical and economic concerns the process inevitably focuses - tunnel like and singular, on one entity alone: The End. Engulfed by requirements and restrictions one might tend to overlook the importance of conceptual thought and making it as much a reality as mere form. These pieces are examples of Architecture limited by pragmatics, but aesthetically liberated in their purest, and most reductive, form. A portrayal of how one does not have to start with something complex to achieve complexity. Multiple layers of simplicity can lead to complexity and the realization that architecture is an art form in its own right.

Colorful street art by Seth Globepainter Artist Julien “Seth” Malland aka Seth Globepainter has become known around the world for his vibrant murals of people, most frequently children, who appear to be sucked into colorful rainbow-like voids. The figures are usually facing away from the viewer, their attention completely swallowed by pools of dripping color revealed behind drab, urban facades. Seth has been active in the Parisian graffiti scene since the 1990s and has written or participated in several books over the last few years.

Hello Cross Connect Curators, I thought you might enjoy my work. I’m a self-taught artist, painting in acrylic. The images are mostly derived from photos I have taken over the years. I am attempting to capture what Alan Watts called “the mystery of the ordinary”, the things we overlook in our daily lives until something forces our attention, like a painting. I focus on urban and suburban scenes. You can view my work here, and visit my blog here .
