Artist of the Day / Filip Dujardin / Belgium

While researching architecture, I came across this amazing Belgian architect who has created some incredibly unique buildings!  I’ve literally never seen anything like his work!

Wait a minute!  Now that I read further, I see that Philip’s buildings are not real at all, but ‘fictions’ as he calls them!

About destructivetesting

I'm a self-taught artist who prefers to use found objects in ways that were never intended. I'm not interested in making 10 or 100 of the same object. This, of course, takes more time to make each piece. I also prefer a more minimalist look, where each part of a piece can be appreciated. I consider my clocks to be small sculptures with moving parts. And, my lamps to be small sculptures with light. My mirrors are reflective sculptures. DESTRUCTIVE TESTING means to push something to it's limits to understand it's structural performance or material behavior under different stresses.

  1. From Sarina–I like the idea of creatively designing buildings even if they are not meeting building codes etc. Most of the buildings in this design project do not appear to be comfortable to live or work in! There are not enough windows and many of the buildings feel clostrophobic and not aesthetically pleasing. The first and one of the others with suspended wings look more desirable. The one with the rock between buildings is interesting, but I doubt anyone would want to look out their window to see a rock! In any case, I do appreciate the creative effort involved.
