Here’s a look at some of the most appreciated projects and Creative Professionals of the week on Behance.net…
Life Below the Surface – An Underwater Art Exhibit
So maybe it’s not the most practical museum of all time, but it’s certainly exclusive, and definitely makes me want to get my scuba license. Since this summer, divers can benefit from a special experience and find a mini-museum placed on the hull of a reef seven miles south of Key West. The photos are encased between sheets of Plexiglass with a stainless steel frame to protect them, and attached to the ship with strong magnets.
Novum 11/11 – Making of Cover
This is no ordinary magazine cover. “In 48,000 passes and with 140 extremely detailed die cuts per magazine” the makers of this Graphic Design magazine created a cover that is completely fluid – able to form new shapes, be bent or folded due to its intricate construction. The “making-of” video is extraordinary – partially because it follows the creation process from its very brainstorming beginnings, partially because of the impressive technical design, and partially because you can tell this team is damn proud of their work. The video felt a little bit like a Mr. Rogers’ field-trip video, for design nerds.
First thing’s first: we love a good collaboration project between two Behancers. Daniel Ting Chong and Jordan Metcalf came together to create an exhibit of objects (hand made of wood and paint) that are representative of weapons or items used in acts of crime in South Africa, both by criminal and law. They playfully examine the place of fear and crime in South Africa – by scaling the objects and turning them into art, the artists try to force the viewers to reconceptualize the place these items hold in their everyday lives.
