In an ongoing series of artworks entitled’ Ciclotramas ‘, Brazilian artist Janaina Mello Landini unravels lassoes into incredible fractal structures that rekindled tree roots, river basins, lightning ten-strikes and circulatory systems.

Landini has been developing this concept since 2010, utilizing threads and strings to create site-specific installations that reside the space in an immersive route. She adds 😛 TAGEND

The idea is to a

unstitcha

Time from its inside, unraveling the weaves of the same rope in constant bifurcations, until the last indivisible stage is reached, a point that holds everything together in perfect equilibrium.

Artist Transforms Fallen Redwood Into Giant Octopus (15 Photos)

Artist Jeffrey Michael Samudosky recently transformed a huge fallen redwood into an amazing giant octopus sculpture. In the progress pictures below you can see the incredible transformation and how the octopus slowly takes shape. To create the artwork Samudosky used a variety of tools including chainsaws, dremels and chisels.

Born and raised in Shelton, Connecticut, Jeff studied art and photography in high school. After graduating, he traveled the continent as an Outward Bound instructor, ice climber, and whitewater rafting guide. In Jackson Hole, Wyoming he trained as an Alpine mountaineering guide and became certified as a wilderness emergency medical technician. That was also the place where his life changed drastically.

A crash while snowboarding left Jeff with a broken back and no feeling in his legs. However, after eight months of painful recovery, Jeff regained the feeling in his legs and was back on his feet. Refusing let his accident stop him from being the energetic man that he is, he decided to get back on his snowboard.

While on his way to the mountain in Vermont he noticed some wood carvings along the side of a road, and he thought, “I could do that.†And so, JMS Wood Sculpture was born in 1998. His business has allowed Jeff to live all over the country and travel all over the world participating in competitions and he continues to be a trusted friend throughout the carving community.
