Aldo Tolino :”Crumbled faces’’ & ‘’Interferenz’’

photo © Aldo Tolino.

Austrian artist Aldo Tolino’s human portraits are the outcome of a multi-step creative loop which goes along the lines of: shooting a portrait, printing it on paper, then creasing it, tucking it and folding it until a brand new facial expression is created before shooting the printed-portrait-turned-sculpture for the final result. During this process, the more you rearrange the shape of the triangle grid on the surface of the printed-portraits, the more facial expressions you generate. Every timeTolino photographs the geometrically folded three-dimensional sculptural-object, a new portrait of the same person is created. The result is a series of photographs that masterfully portray ”crumbled faces‘’ that serve to open a dialogue between portraiture and sculpture.

Aldo Tolino is currently working on a book project entitled ‘’interferenz’’ which takes a closer look at topics such as paper, folding, image, object, sculpture, texture and recursion. His never-ending loop between image and sculptural objects can also be viewed on his official website.

TOKYO COMPRESSION | MICHAEL WOLF

Traveling on an extremely crowded subway is one of my least favorite things ever. So, when I saw this photo series by German-born artist Michael Wolf, I was both intrigued and horrified. In the series, entitled Tokyo Compression, the Hong Kong-based photographer spent time studying the culture of Tokyo, focusing specifically on the individuals who spend their daily commute packed onto the city subway trains.

The photographs in the project highlight the downside to living in a big city. Cheeks are pressed against the steamy glass and faces are lost in a daydream as people try to disconnect from their uncomfortable travels to and from home. Wolf says the photographs represent “chiefly the tragedy of the human condition. What you see is not the result of a natural catastrophe. Man is responsible for this himself—a dreadful system for people, and by people.”
