Shirin Abedinirad

Shirin Abedinirad | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Shirin Abedinirad was born in 1986, in Tabriz, Iran. In 2002, she began her artistic activities with painting. She studied graphic design and fashion design at Dr. Shariaty University in Tehran, where her research focused on conceptual art and the ways in which it overlaps with fashion design.

While studying fashion design, she began working as a model. In 2010, Shirin was chosen as the face of United Colors of Benetton F/W International Campaign. As part of the campaign, she was invited to work with Benetton’s research center, Fabrica, in Treviso, Italy.

Around this time, she started engaging in performance art pieces around Iran, confronting issues of gender, sexuality, and human compassion. She has also put on public shows in Spain, Turkey and India. Since 2012, Shirin has been making video art, exploring the notion of self and identity with moving images. She studied under critically-acclaimed Iranian director Abbas Kiarostami. In both her performance pieces and videos, she designs her own costumes, props, and sets.

In March 2014, Shirin was selected for a one-year scholarship with United Colors of Benetton’s Fabrica research center.

Currently based between Florence and Tehran, Shirin has continued focusing on her performance, installation, and video art.

Kumi Yamashita

Kumi Yamashita | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

New York City-based Japanese artist Kumi Yamashita casts light on seemingly-random objects to create surprising shadow art. At first glance, her work may appear to be the silhouettes of people, but look closer and they are actually an assortment of wood blocks, fabrics, sheets of paper or aluminum and stainless steel plates attached to walls, which she shines a strategically-placed light on at just the right angle, thereby transforming simple, everyday items into extraordinary art. Perspective and imagination being key, the display may appear haphazard and chaotic at first, but every piece plays an important part, whose combined shadows produce unexpected results. Attention to detail is paramount: one false move and the creation is drastically altered and no longer looks the way it was intended. By focusing on the human figure, the carefully-choreographed artworks evoke a narrative with a range of emotions and feel like a personal memory of a moment lost in time. Realistic characters come to life from inanimate objects: a crease in a leaf of paper transforms into a shadowy face, the drape of a piece of fabric becomes a sensual female figure lying down, wooden numbers add up to form a child’s profile, a section of carved wood portrays a man sitting on a chair.

Taxi Fabric

Taxi Fabric | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

There are 12 million people in Mumbai and the Taxi’s their most convenient from of transport.
With around 55,000 thousand of them in use, they’ve become this really iconic piece of culture. 
Taxi drivers themselves are like peacocks; each driver is trying to outshine his rivals with a more attractive taxi. But with all the work they do to their cabs, the seat covers are the only thing no one seems to think about. The drivers just use whatever fabric when the seats need covering. And there's nothing wrong with what they use. The designs are functional. But they're dull and forgettable. 
You see, design is taken for granted in India. Older generations don't understand it or recognise it as a proper profession or something worth studying. Design to them, just performs a function. They don't know it can create an impact. And with so few spaces for young people to show off their skills, it's hard to change that perception.

Taxi Fabric saw taxi-seats as the perfect platform to start showing India what design can do. So they started redesigning taxi-seats with young designers from Mumbai- using the fabric as their canvas, using design to create beautiful drawings and illustrations that tell beautiful stories centered around Mumbai.

MegaBots

MegaBots | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it
Making the world more epic, one giant robot at a time.

MegaBots, Inc., uses cutting-edge robotics technology to create the giant piloted fighting robots of science fiction, videogames and movies. These robots fight in epic-scale arena combat the likes of which the world has never seen before.

MegaBots are 15-foot-tall, internally piloted humanoid robots that fire cannonball-sized paintballs at each other at speeds of over 120 miles per hour. As the robots battle, armor panels crack and break off, smoke and sparks pour out of the robots, limbs eventually fall off, and robots fall to the ground until only one is left standing.

MegaBot creators Gui Cavalcanti and Matt Oehrlein debuted an early build of a 15-foot-tall version of their giant battle robot at MakerFaire Bay Area. The robot used its air-powered weapons to pulverize a car with giant paintballs to the delight of onlookers.

Dean Zeus Colman

Dean Zeus Colman | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

For the past 30 years, London artist Zeus has been drawing inspiration from urban culture to create dynamic, experimental compositions that have re-defined graffiti art. His latest works represents an innovative fusion of graffiti techniques and typography, fine art and sculpture and reflect both his background on the streets and his formal training at Chelsea College of Art.

Born Dean Zeus Colman, his middle name naturally became his tag. It could be seen across London throughout the 80s and, still in his teens, Zeus earned the reputation of being a prolific writer. His work caught the attention of many of the influential faces of hip-hop at the time, figures like Tim Westwood who commissioned him to create designs for one of the first hip-hop clubs, Spatz, in 1984.

Through Westwood, Zeus also had the opportunity to work with the likes of Paul Oakenfold, making backdrops and posters for artists signed to his Def Jam label, including Dougie Fresh and Whizz Kid. When house music took off Zeus also received commissions from the warehouse clubs that sprung up around the capital, such as West World at the Brixton Academy. All these contacts served as an effective catalyst for his career, encouraging him to think beyond the limitations of spray paint and walls

Zeus has worked with numerous community centres throughout London, teaching young offenders graffiti techniques, and helping to establish the art form as an effective, positive outlet for the energies and creativity of teenagers. He was even invited to teach Prince Charles how to spray paint as part of a Princes Trust initiative.

Zeus returned to college and secured a place at Chelsea College of Art to study for a degree in Fine Art, majoring in sculpture. This took his art into three-dimensional form, creating graffiti sculptures out of light wooden sheets.

Over the next decade interest in Zeus intensified. He was described as a 3D graffiti pioneer by The Face magazine and his work appeared at a variety of venues throughout the UK, including the Victoria & Albert museum as part of its StreetStyle exhibition.

Niharika Hukku

Niharika Hukku | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Painter Niharika Hukku's captivating work will make you realize that ordinary fish possess an innate beauty. More often than not, the artist uses simple, white pottery (which she constructs herself) as a functional canvas for her aquatic designs. 

While Hukku's love of nature is apparent in her dazzling work, it's her past experiences that truly inspire her to continue as an artist. 

Hukku uses her extraordinary talents to create ceramics that reflect her sophisticated vision. Every single detail of her work is refined and evokes a sense of simple elegance that emulates beauty found in nature. In fact, it almost seems as if Hukku's fish are delicately flowing and refracting light as they swim along her workspace.

XYZ Workshop

XYZ Workshop | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

XYZ Workshop was formed in early 2013, by Australian Architects, Elena Low and Kae Woei Lim. This husband and wife team were intrigued by desktop manufacturing and spent their time out of their architectural work tinkering around with their kit assembled 3D printer from Ultimaker. Much like Architecture, they were drawn into the potential of 3d Printing as it fused aspects of Art, Sculpture and Technology.

Their vision is to make XYZ Workshop a creative hub for collaboration between different creative enterprises and a teaching platform for 3D printing technology to different interested groups, be it school kids, designers, engineers and innovators. XYZ Workshop will be working with designers to show case their unique designs, to push the boundaries of 3d printing.

Elena and Kae Woei have a 2 year old son, Cooper. ”We wanted to bring him up in an environment that encouraged creativity, exploration and making.” says Elena. “Although Cooper is still young and had just begun to walk, we are hoping that in the near future, He will be able to play with the 3D printer, giving him access to a level of “making” and inventing that we never had when were we younger.”

Elena and Kae Woei have bigger plans to promote this idea of encouraging invention by creating 3D prints via ‘make + learn’ classes for aspiring young kids in Australia. XYZ will be running a series of learn + make sessions in the near future but you can email your expression of interest now.

Monarch Tiny Homes - Light Footprint Engineering

Monarch Tiny Homes - Light Footprint Engineering | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Monarch Tiny Homes is named after the monarch butterfly. This beautiful, winged creature migrates from Canada to Mexico and has a light footprint. A Monarch tiny home is also beautiful with a light footprint.

Ryan put his belief of minimalist living into reality a decade ago as he built his own 500-square-foot home. His family of four thrived inside their efficient floor plan, allowing them to spend ample time in the great outdoors. Several years ago, Ryan shared the tiny house movement with his good friend Ben during their early morning workout. Ben loved the homes but quickly became deterred after seeing prices upwards of sixty grand.

Since then, Ryan and Ben have devoted everything to deliver tiny homes with unmatched materials for a price that makes sense. We believe tiny-house living shouldn't take years or fortunes to acquire.

Rómulo Celdrán

Rómulo Celdrán | Heart is a Lock, Music is the Key | Scoop.it

Artist Rómulo Celdrán reimagines everyday objects as larger-than-life sculptures for his playful series calledMacro. Things like bottle caps, ice cube trays, and sponges are scaled hundreds of times bigger for the sculpture series. Sometimes, this makes them well over seven feet tall.

The gigantic sizing acts like a magnifying glass for these objects. By blowing up the small details, we see characteristics of the item that we’d normally miss because they’re so small. At this oversized scale, the zig-zag surface pattern on a hot water bottle becomes much more pronounced, as does the joints of clothes pins. A pen cap also showcases the wear and tear that comes from chewing on it too long. It’s these nooks and crannies that invite us to carefully explore each of Celdrán’s works, making them a joy to view.

The famous pop artist Claes Oldenburg was instrumental in the development of Celdrán’s pieces. Oldenburg began creating oversized sculptures in the 1960s, and they were an inspiration to Celdrán.
