Gehard Demetz

I came across the work of Gehard Demetz in 2007 when I stumbled upon a news article related to his child depiction of Adolf Hitler. The treatment and execution of his wooden sculptures are both startling and unique. Worth particular mention is his treatment of the construction, which is achieved using small blocks of wood, which intern are shaped to give sketchy, rough surfaces in contrast with the smooth polished flatter surfaces.

Dream Big

Pete Fecteau is an interactive designer, who also loves illustration, painting and sculptures. Currently based in San Francisco, Fracteau was originally based in Brighton, Michigan where in 2010 he competed in a large art competition called ArtPrize. Having an interest in Rubik’s Cubes, he took the idea forward as part of a creative concept after a dream.

The result was a Dream Big, a mosaic installation made of 4,242 Rubik’s Cubes. Measuring 5.8m x 2.6m x 5.7cm, it weighed roughly 454kg. The construction process took a little over 40 hours involving 6 volunteers. The cubes were rented through the You Can Do The Cube organisation at a total cost of $8000. “Dream Big” placed in the top 50 out of 1,700+ entries.

You can view Fecteau’s website for more details on this and other projects he has been involved in.
