Welcome to the September issue of CODAmagazine, where we share the best design + art projects from all over the world. The magazine is published eleven times a year by CODAworx.com – we’re an online community for artists and design professionals to showcase their work, collaborate with one another, and earn recognition for their projects.
The Human Form is the organizing principle of this month’s issue. Putting a new spin on the venerable artistic tradition of human form studies, today’s artists and designers integrate the form into the built environments we travel daily.
CODAmagazine documents the world’s latest human form projects in an array of media; we have selected 26 awe-inspiring projects where collaborative teams transform public, commercial, educational, and liturgical spaces through imaginative depictions of the human body.
Within this issue you’ll find bronze statues honoring local heroes, a giant mesh arm delicately reaching out from a German landscape, an ornate mosaic of Jesus housed in a California church, and a sculptural installation celebrating women workers in a Spanish seaport town.
Full of engaging works that portray, observe, and reflect upon humanity’s physical existence, this CODAmagazine takes you from museum to clothing store to airport to stone village, displaying ultra-realistic figures, cartoon monuments, 3D-printed fashion pieces, and bright life-sized sculptural silhouettes.
We hope you will subscribe to CODAmagazine on Flipboard to receive the best design + art projects from all over the world, delivered to you, free of charge, each month. We look forward to sharing more of these incredible collaborations with you.
