Akropolis/Metropolis

Posted in architecture by Possum of Possum's blogg on September 14, 2010

Long time – no blogging, i thought i’d upload a few images from a project i made at the chalmers school of architecture last term. The title of the project was akropolis/metropolis and, briefly explained, it consisted of a housing project on top of a commercial/public development in downtown Gothenburg where a portion of the city with great water contact is up for exploitation due to a new traffic situation.

The project related to the postmodern urbanist trends in the municipal plan by exagerating the mixed styles sought after in the development plan for the adjacent blocks and turning it in to a vertical mix of functions and styles.

As i’m a fan of complexity (especially in an urban context) 0ne concept certainly wasn’t enough, the housing project was directed especially at single young academics who work a lot and are interested in experiencing the positive sides of collective living without the many of the major drawbacks, it also explored the possibility of advertising on facades with windows to help fund otherwise rather exclusive forms of accomodation. In fact there were even more concepts at work than that, but i think a hint at the complexity of the project will have to do since i’m far to tired to write allready.

A Darker Rococo

Posted in art by Possum of Possum's blogg on November 8, 2009

The two latest images commissioned by sprezzatura. The theme is commentary on an excerpt from a rather wellknown diary kept by one of the ministers of louis XV’s court, the comte d’argenson.

The excerpt in my own translation: The Dauphin (crown prince) and the princesses become melancholic and devote them selves without constraints to their peculiar taste; they wont see and will never speak to others: they love to talk of death and catafalks; in the dark antechamber they amuse themselves by playing quadrille in the light of a yellow wax candle, and with delight they tell each other: “Nous sommes morts” (we are dead).

Fragonard dans l’hôpital

Posted in art, erotic by Possum of Possum's blogg on October 7, 2009

The second comission by sprezzatura, a hospital theme just like the last one but this time in conjunction with another eighteenth century artist, Fragonard – my own suggestion.

As with the last 0ne: If you like the image and would really like to be notified if it becomes available as a print ( there’s been talk of it) just mail me at techteur@gmail.com and i’ll save your adress and notify you.

word has come about that i’m an angel

Posted in art, erotic by Possum of Possum's blogg on June 25, 2009

But i’m really a social realist, hence – art

Actually i'm

Actually i'm très bourgois

I’ve decided my vavourite word is autoerotic asphixiation.

I made this image listening to a description of the life and works of Jean Paul Sartre, thus i named it Très bourgouise, his favourite badmouthing.

I thought it’d make a nice t-shirt.
