Aydin Büyüktaş Challenges Perception With Distorted Views of American Landscapes

For his series Flatland II, Turkish artist Aydin Büyüktaş has created dizzying and distorted views of American landscapes. It took the photographer two months to scout and plan for the locations, then another month and 10,000 miles of travelling across the USA to capture the shots. Aydin captured 18-20 images for each shot, then stitched them together to create collages that stretch into the sky and fold onto themselves.

Sidewalk Cracks Fixed With The Japanese Art of Gold Repair

On a fine day in the spring of 2014, artist Rachel Sussman made her introduction to the Japanese art of Kintsugi or Kintsukuroi. The catalyst was a photograph she saw on social media of a broken ceramic bowl put back together with gold. Kintsugi is the traditional Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer mixed with gold, silver, or platinum dust.
