Installation by we+ is a series of clocks which tell the time with human faces:
Patience is a clock which uses a human face to represent the passage of
time. The eyes work in the same way as an analog clock’s hands, with the

mouth opens and closes to represent seconds.
“Endless garlands of flowers curled around the borders of my note pads when I was a school girl. And thousands of roses were cut out from my mother’s gardening books. At the Academy of Arts, flowers as large as life were painted on my canvasses. There were always flowers. They flourished in the self-portraits of the eighties and grew bigger in the flower wallpapers made in the nineties.” Margriet Smulders is a Dutch photographer of floral still lifes. She attended the Radboud University Nijmegen from 1974 to 1983 and the Academy of Arts in Arnhem from 1979 to 1985. Many thanks to arpeggia for introducing us Margriet Smulders on the first Monday of 2013 :)

Garth Knight is an Australian artist based in Sydney.
His multi-disciplinary practice covers various areas including installation, sculpture, and photo media. Many of his works include the use of rope bondage pieces based in the shibari tradition, both as erotic and sculptural forms, creating tableaux of intricate, decorative networks that connect ideas of strength and pleasure with those of surrender and abandonment. Garth uses the rope both in a decorative sense, to draw the image, as well as psychological, to place the subject and himself into a state of altered or transcendental reality which is reflected in the images.
