Elementor Showcase 2021

Very proud to have made the top 10 in the Elementor End-of-Year Showcase for 2021. Earlier in the year the Grenade Studio folio website made the Elementor best of August 2021 list. It was then shortlisted for the End-of-Year top 30 and has come in at 8th position, making the top 10. Featuring great design […]

Seeing the Invisible

Open all the way through until August 2022, the truly awesome Seeing the Invisible augmented reality exhibition can be seen at 12 botanic garden sites in 6 different countries. If there is a location near you, then go – it’s a real treat. Melburnians get to choose between The Royal Botanic Gardens and Cranbourne Botanic […]

Gerwyn Davies

Australian artist Gerwyn Davies looks to be having a heap of fun with his art. Is it performance?, costume?, photography? it’s all of these things and more. I truly admire how far Gerwyn is exploring his concept. To quote from his website (where you can see many more fantastic images) – “these works explore the […]

The Alternative Limb Project

What an amazing project. The Alternative Limb Project was founded by Sophie de Oliveira Barata who seems to have found an very special little niche. By using the unique medium of prosthetics, highly amplified wearable art pieces are created that no doubt bring an incredible sense of self to the user. I was overwhelmed on […]

Philipp Merkelbach

Loving the work of multidisciplinarian artist Philipp Merkelbach. Quite an experimental, otherworldly feel, peppered with great composition and colour, I especially like his numinous machine orbs – nft’s which you can also collect on hicetnunc. Plenty to see at his great website which includes a trippy homepage.

Viewfinder

As a young kid I had a periscope made from cardboard and a small mirror. I could look over the neighbours fence and spy on my brothers around the corner, it was awesome. I also love the ocean, so no wonder I was drawn to Australian Joel Adler’s Viewfinder sculpture. The angled mirror allows the […]

Low Earth Orbit

Realtime tracking of all of the low earth orbit (LEO) objects currently in position around our earth by the crew at Leo Labs. The scale is a little deceiving as the objects would be a great deal smaller than indicated, but it really does give you a clear indication of just how much is floating […]

Baku Hashimoto

Incredibly original forms from massively talented Japanese multidisciplinary artist, Baku Hashimoto. Houdini experiments, these imaginary shapes and textures or stonewares, look more to me like alien life forms.

Teenage Engineering

Highly desirable products from Swedish based Teenage Engineering. With a minimal aesthetic their colourful range of stand out technology products don’t just work as stand alone items, but can interact with other technologies and devices. Assisting in the exploration of different technologies, brands and devices. Thinking global. The Ortho Remote which can be used with […]

SpaceX Docking

Who needs sci-fi films anymore – we have Elon. Given the tip from a space loving buddy, I have been enjoying watching the SpaceX live coverage of recent missions. It’s real, really real. The pace is almost excrutiatingly slow, but it’s fine because it’s real. The parking of a spaceship in the movies is over […]
