One Hundred and Eight – Interactive Installation from Nils Völker on Vimeo. One Hundred and Eight is an interactive wall-mounted Installation mainly made out of ordinary garbage bags. Controlled by a microcontroller each of them is selectively inflated and deflated in turn by two cooling fans. Although each plastic bag is mounted stationary the sequences […]
W Magazine is doing a “fashion on film” contest. My good friend Belinda Martin was involved with the video titled “FOLLOW ME” by Christina R. Go vote! The idea of duality was important to me, as it reflects the potential fashion has to transform oneself.
I just absolutely LOVE these paintings by Nicholas Bohac. They merge simplicity of form and complexity of color to create a surreal illustrative landscape. LOVE! via booooooom
I’ve been following Yulia Gorodinski for a while now. I always really get excited when I see her pop up in my google reader… however I make sure not to click at work. Her works are very revealing but I find them to be absolutely beautiful. innocent and provocative. Follow her blog at http://yuliagorodinski.tumblr.com/. The […]
I just love these two shots posted on Triangle Triangle the other day.
This photo makes me speechless. I just love Peggy Guggenheim, her life, and all that she did for art. A real example of the motto: “Life is short, Art is long.” lived out.
This is just a wonderful project done by Caitlin Parker called “Let The Outside In.” I absolutely love this series. Nature taking over a little house… all the animals that visit. It makes me wish I lived in the woods! Here is what Caitlin has to say about the project: This is a 4 minute […]
The Hamburger Bahnhof was absolutely stunning. The Bruce Nauman show was INCREDIBLE.
This is unbelievable. I would love to have experienced this! Clouds are important elements of our atmosphere, framing outdoor space and filtering sunlight. They are the visible part of the terrestrial water cycle, carrying water— the source of life—from the oceans to the land. Clouds find balance within stable equilibria and naturally sustain themselves, embodying […]
I spent four hours in the Louvre on a Wednesday afternoon. Here are some of my findings.
6th Berlin Biennale: Oranienplatz 17 Building. There were a lot of videos so I dont have as many photos for this building as I do the KW.
Here is a general gallery of pieces in the KW building of the Biennale. It was an extremely well crafted exhibition and all the pieces flowed greatly into each other. I seriously enjoyed the exhibition and was actually rather overwhelmed with the care, craft, and intensity of some of the pieces. The videos below the […]
Hammock – Breathturn from David Altobelli on Vimeo. Thanks Josh
In case you couldn’t tell, I’m really into Petrit Halilaj’s work at the Biennale. Here is a piece he did where he floated a feather in a water tank. He had little motors in the water to blow water on the feather. It created this eternal lovely subtle flowing motion like in air. It was […]
Here is another piece in the KW building of the Berlin Biennale done by Pertit Halilaj. This one was particularly stunning when you first see it, and surprising when you walk around it. It also had some tie-in to the primitive nature of his previous piece and the earthy smell of it was particularly wonderful. […]
One of the first things I saw when I walked into the KW building of the Berlin Biennale was a massive piece done by Petrit Halilaj. His structure filled the room with its rudimentary forms, looking very primitive in its construction but leaving you feeling like there is something almost magical about it. That might […]
Mark Boulos did this great piece in the KW building of the 6th Berlin Biennale. The title of the piece is “All That Is Solid Melts Into Air” There were two video screens facing each other. One had stock market video going on with men looking upset about the outcome. The other screen was impoverished […]
The gallery that Jason works at here in Berlin is called MMX Open Art Venue. Its really awesome and inspiring. I wish there were more cool galleries like this in Birmingham.
When walking around we came across this sign pointing us in the direction of a gallery… Yay! Turns out it was just a construction site. Zur Galerie Fail.
Along with my friends Jason and Kat we went to the Martin-Gropius-Bau to see the Olafur Eliasson Exhibition. I was completely blown away. It was so well put together and so beautiful. the magnitude at which the exhibition was crafted and the detail in every piece made me speechless. Unfortunately I was yelled at when […]
This installation done by Gregory Euclide for the Biennial of the America’s in Denver, CO is absolutely stunning. It is titled: “Because There’s a There, Here’s Just Fine” Materials are: “Acrylic, cedar, cigarette butts, eurocast, fertilizer, foam, found plastic, garbage from Denver parks, insulation, lichen, moss, organic material from Denver, sponge, steel 55 gallon drum, […]
I just love this work from Berlin based Judith Sang. I saw this series “Trift” a while back and forwarded it to a friend. It has now hit the radar again and I just can’t not post it up this time. The clean edges and slick finish of the tops of the wood blocks are […]
My friend Jason Burgess it at it again.. currently located in Germany.. he has come out with a series of raw youtube videos entitled. “No Jobs No Prospects No Future No Ceilings.” There are 21 videos in all so I’m not going to include them all here. Here is the link to the play list. […]
This is a really cool animation. I love the use of the organic elements: paper, dirt, and fire. found via grafikmag.com a little bit about the makers: Design and Animation: Line Andersen / Andersen M Studio Photography and Lighting: Martin Andersen / Andersen M Studio Music and Sound: Mikkel H. Eriksen / Instrument Studio Andersen […]
I can’t even begin to explain why the work of Sam Winston is an inspiration. Every single intricate detail of everything he does has purpose and meaning. down to a letter or circle. So, you really need to go to his website and check it out for yourself. http://www.samwinston.com/found via the strange attractor
