Feast your eyes on the gorgeous Ghost Chair designed by Valentina Gonzalez Wohlers.
A chair that brings not only originality and functionality in a statement furniture piece, with transparency that enables the chair to exist in any environment, it is a piece of art unto itself.
Ghost Chairs are hand-made out of 4mm transparent polyester. Each chair is unique and unrepeatable due to its unusual manufacturing process. They are custom made and can be customized in any color.
UK arts and technology collective Seeper chose one of New York’s most spectacular buildings, Frank Gehry’s IAC Headquarters in Chelsea, to show their immersive architectural projection mapping project titled “The Lightline of Gotham”, which combined art, architecture and technology, to produce 3D artwork.
Projection mapping is a special technique of projecting 3D films on buildings, following their exact contour. The bespoke video was shown in real time on the building, transforming it into a giant screen. The score was especially made for the performance.

The paintings of Andy Denzler appear to be photographs that have flaws. They are quite refreshing and stand apart from hyperrealistic paintings emerging onto the scene.
