Pedro Reyes is a Mexican artist who has created a series of sculptures called Capula. Made of steel and woven nylon, Capula looks like an awesome clubhouse.  

Reyes has drawn up a "Capula Manifesto" that reads like this:

 

If a Room has rigid walls/the Capula shall be elastic 

If a Room divides the inside from the outside/the Capula shall be permeable

If a Room is grounded/the Capula shall hover

If a Room is steady/the Capula shall rock or swing

If a Room has walls that block the light/the Capula shall radiate the light

If a Room creates a fixed field of vision/the Capula shall be kinetic

If a Room needs furniture/the Capula will turn into furniture 

If a Room hides from the view/the Capula allows a glimpse 

If a Room is an ensemble of parts/the Capula shall be a continuum

 

In fact, 

 

a sense

of essence

is,

in essence 

of sense,

in effect.

I love art work that is accompanied by a manifesto.

    You've seen Cleon Peterson's Balance of Power before, but not like this. Case Studyo have collaborated with the artist to create a 3D version of the painting rendered in glossy, white porcelain.

    I had to do a double-take when I saw this email in my inbox this morning. Cult film director, comic book author, and Twitter philosopher Alejandro Jodorowsky is being immortalized in resin by Unbox Industries.

    These glass sculptures are far more interesting than that shitty Crystal Skulls movie.
