Here is a collection of works i liked the most by japanese designer Oki Sato. His philosophy:

“Giving people a small ” ! ” moment.
There are so many small ” ! ” moments hidden in our everyday.

But we don’t recognize them.
and even when we do recognize them,we tend to unconsciously reset our
minds and forget what we’ve seen.

But we believe these small ” ! ” moments are what make our days so
interesting, so rich.”

Myoung Ho Lee is a student, lecturer and photographer based in Seoul, Korea. He attracted international acclaim in 2007 with his series Tree.

SCOTT BARRY’s work combines illustration, animation, collage, photography and installation. I like the way he combines the elements in his works,  it’s simple but makes a instantaneous connection with the audience, it’s like skipping all the useless words. It has a  bit of mysticism combined with  humor sometimes even sarcasm. It seems that the artist is mainly preoccupied by space and how we integrate in it, sexuality, life and death, the beauty of chaos and the simple  relation between people like in the piece Naked high five.

Sandy Skouglungis an American conceptual photographer and installation artist. Her work represents basically a social critique of consumption and domestic life. One of her major foray into graphics is True Fiction (1986) a portfolio where she mixes high contrast colors and optical patterns created through repeated elements. Skoglund creates surealist images by building elaborate sets ortableaux, furnishing them with carefully selected colored furniture and other objects, a process of which takes her months to complete. Finally, she photographs the set, complete with actors.
