Alasdair Thomson Sculpts Chic Summer Dresses from Marble

Talented sculptor Alasdair Thomson has recently created ‘The Identity Collection’, which is essentially a series of flirty and feminine dresses carved from marble. Each stunning dress in this collection is named after a woman, which makes the name of this fashion-based sculpture series extremely fitting. The Hannah, Carrie, Lucy and Greta do have something in common. Each of these realistically carved couture pieces looks soft and flowy, which is rather misleading given the material used to create them.

  Luminous Mosque with the rainbow colors

The stunning Nasir al-mulk Mosque hides a gorgeous secret between the walls of its fairly traditional exterior: stepping inside is like walking into a kaleidoscope of colors. Every day, the rays of the early morning sun shine through colorful stained-glass windows, transforming the halls into a dazzling wonderland of rich hues, patterns, and light that play on the floor of the mosque.

The Shadow Cube Anila Quayyum Agha

In this amazing light and shadow installation by Anila Quayyum Agha, we see a large-scale patterned wood cube with an interior light source that projects brilliant shadow patterns on the surrounding walls.

Entitled Intersections (6.5′ cube, projected shadows: 35′x32′), the artwork has been selected as a finalist for the 3rd Annual See.Me: Year in Review Competition.

Agha explains:

With this large scale patterned wood project I explored intersections of culture and religion, the dynamics and interpretation of space and sight as it threaded through cultures and emerged as varied expressions that redefine themselves with the passage of time. In this piece, a motif that is believed to represent certitude is explored to reveal its fluidity i.e. the geometrical patterning in Islamic sacred spaces. This project is meant to uncover the contradictory nature of all intersections; which are simultaneously boundaries and also points of meeting.

The Intersections project takes the seminal experience of exclusion as a woman from a space of community and creativity such as a Mosque and translates the complex expressions of both wonder and exclusion that have been my experience while growing up in Pakistan. The wooden frieze emulates a pattern from the Alhambra, which was poised at the intersection of history, culture and art and was a place where Islamic and Western discourses, met and co-existed in harmony and served as a testament to the symbiosis of difference. I have given substance to this mutualism with the installation project exploring the binaries of public and private, light and shadow, and static and dynamic. This installation project relies on the purity and inner symmetry of geometric design, the interpretation of the cast shadows and the viewer’s presence with in a public space.
