From a tiny alpine chapel and whimsical floral artworks to imperfect portraits and 3D glass collages, these are the VISI’s teams top picks of the week.
1. Tiny Alpine Chapel
“Innauer Matt Architekten (IMA) is behind the design of this tiny chapel (with a floor space of only 6 square metres) in an Austrian alpine valley,” says Online Editor Lindi Brownell Meiring. “Made from concrete, as well as locally sourced stone, the look and feel of the chapel was actually decided on by the farmers living in the surrounding area.”

3. Jel-Ena Portraits
“Serbian-born, Los Angeles-based multi-media artist Jel-Ena’s portraits truly capture the natural beauty of the depicted characters,” says Managing Editor Samantha Charles. “This non-conformative style is as inviting as it is beautiful.”

4. Dustin Yellin’s Psychogeographies Series
“Dustin Yellin’s 3D glass collages are original and imaginative,” says Features Writer Amelia Brown. “They’re made up of magazine cut-outs, flowers, leaves, acrylic paint and much more, before being sealed in resin.”
