Cake Sculptures Carved From Sheets of Chocolate by Miami-based Artist Jose Margulis and Dinara Kaskp

Art, Foodnicole ziziComment

“The works of artist, José Margulis have been transformed into edible choclate treats by architect turned baker Dinara Kasko.

The Kinetic Tarts are the result of a collaboration between Kakso and Margulis, who worked together to create edible versions of his artworks for food publication So Good.”

“Margulis, a Miami mixed-media artist, forms his sculptures from layers of colourful plastic sheets – creating a geometric pattern that changes depending on the viewing angle.”

"I tried to transform his creations, made of plastic, aluminium and acrylic, into something edible, using basic techniques and ingredients," said Kasko. "Yet, I wanted to preserve his message and feel."

"It had to be an installation-performance where the art was created by José Margulis and then transformed by me into an edible piece of art which would be later consumed – thus disappear," she continued. "I was transforming the object of art into something edible that would later perish, while emphasising the ephemeral art, its fleetingness in our life."

Women-only co-working spaces are opening across the world. In effort to push for gender equality. Workspaces and clubs geared towards women, like Seattle's The Riveter, Toronto's Make Lemonade, London's AllBright and New York's The Wing, opened. Spaces are changing the way business women work. The founders say these spaces allow for "women to thrive in a often male dominated space."

Three Gifted Artist Team Up to Present "UNTMD,2018"

Artnicole ziziComment

Three gifted artist, Margo Ashley, Reginald O'Neal, and Terrence Price have teamed up to create a beautiful short film titled "UNTMD, 2018.". A  video that shows the beauty in black, love, self love, and acceptance. The video speaks for itself. Below you can view the script.

 

"Grey day that boy got them wicks,
Them dukes,
Them bodies,

That boy shit live as fuck
How you get yo shit like that

Oh forreal?

They so alluring
I'm bet criticism comes pouring, out of the mouth of those who are confused about your story,
and why you choose to store these, tangled leaves on your head like that.

You like a rasta or something?
A homeless man?
A thug?

Someone who loves the absence of, systematic mental control,
Pure freedom, black dove
Black love...
Black love! 
Self Love! 
Self acceptance!

A display of strength that show,
All of these weapons, 
Aimed at you won't prosper

Well kept, 
So beautiful, 
But yet so...
Neglected. " - Reginald O'Neal
