In Beautiful/Decay Book 5: Psychonauts we raise our anchor and set sail on an unknown voyage with seven featured artists whose work pushes the possibilities for consciousness within contemporary art. They each work in various mediums and conceptual frameworks but all share a common interest in the human condition. In addition to the features, we also invited 14 artists from around the world to create original work for our psychonaut project pages. The results are extremely unique and anything but predictable. Book 5 also includes a die-cut sticker created by artist, Gunsho.

Earlier this week I posted the Nephicide video featuring little kids projectile vomiting blood complete with black metal face paint. To round things out on the hip-hop side of things I present Yonkers by Tyler, The Creator. Watch Tyler play with giant insects, roll his eyes in the back of his head, have random nose bleeds, and most importantly vomit. If you’re not familiar with Tyler make sure to look him up. He’s part of ODD FUTURE WOLF GANG KILL THEM ALL (OFWGKTA), an LA hip-hop collective that has been getting some much deserved attention as of late. Watch the full video after the jump.
High end fashion made out of Beef Gelatine and agar-agar sea vegetables might not hit the runways just yet but kuddos to Emily Crane for being at the forefront of high tech kitchen couture (who knew there was such a thing). Read more and watch a video after the jump and see how glycerine, fatty acids, and even bubbles are turned into fashion.
Welcome to John Malta‘s creepy, surreal world where lizards shave your head, cacti wear sunglasses, people sleep on top of giant cats, and everyones eyes look like they just took one too many hits of meth.
