GIFs of Mädir Eugster Balancing Palm Leaf Ribs by Tobias Hutzler
Balance is actually a short documentary directed by Tobias Hutzler that shows the incredible balancing work performed by artist Mädir Eugster of Rigolo Swiss Nouveau Cirque. Set aligned with a plain, white backdrop, the performance artist vigilantly gathers 16 bare ribs of palm leaves and a feather by balancing each member in front of the other. The split objects are separated during the whole exhausting course as Eugster handles to keep his footing for the duration of the balancing act.

Consisting of intricately carved forms, some as small as a grain of sand, Cosmology of Life draws the viewers closer to study the assembly of miniature talisman like sculptures displayed in the Singapore Biennale 2013. Carved carefully from wood, these sculptures are intuitively shaped by the artist Toni Kanwa, addressing his expression of nature, spirituality and the macro and micro cosmos.
Toni’s creations begin with a special ritual of dialoguing with the materials used, as he believes that every material has its own character. Equipped with that sensitivity, he then follows the movement of energy from within the material, bringing out the life from within the work. The forms he carves embody signs or symbols that draw back to the natural cosmology. The human figure often becomes reference for these forms, as to Toni, the human body is the most perfect of God’s creations.
Cosmology of Life is not about the investigation and study of shapes and figures, but rather a manifestation of themes nature, spirituality, realms and the issues of the cosmos, presenting itself through different forms in the work. Toni’s work and creations often does not begin with a design or plan; instead its conception follows the flow of the artist’s intuition and instinct.

NEW DOLL! http://missmonster.myshopify.com/
So i finally got around to seeing Attack the Block and it’s my new favorite monster movie. Of course i had to make one of the alien dolls for myself but i also wanted to make one available for folks to buy!
This doll has light up battery powered teeth and hinged jaws. The light battery pack is hidden inside the back, batteries can be changed easily. Urethane teeth and claws with a soft stuffed faux fur body, non articulated arms and legs. The torso does have an armature.
This doll sits at 15” tall.
As with all of my original dolls, this piece will come with a signed and dated etched wooden tag marking it as one of my one of a kind critters.
This is a piece of artwork intended for adult collectors. It can be played with and cuddled a little but please treat it with care to prevent scuffs. Clean any cast parts with a slightly damp cloth, do not use solvents. Fur can be combed and styled if desired.
I do not take on commissioned work.
