Creative network Behance has been keeping a watchful eye on the work of its millions of members and has put together a book highlighting the trends it sees forming in the online artistic community – long before these trends make it to the gallery. Super-Modified: The Behance Book of Creative Work is a finger-on-the-pulse selection of trailblazing creativity curated from artists and artisans around the globe, with 18 chapters each covering a different facet of “super-modified” work.
Behance’s team of experts have cherry-picked what they believe are the most interesting things happening today. Innovative uses for new technologies is one example, such as the use of algorithms to create abstract shapes, while at the other end of the scale there’s a look at how felt material is being re-invented in offices and furniture design. Recycling and upcycling, from shipping containers to drinks cans to hats made of plastic sporks, is also under review, plus exciting work in the fields of photography, fashion, architecture and illustration.
