A clever animation by Sola Bapiste inspired by the work of Josef Albers.
Description of Robert William Overweg’s “Documenting Current Spaces” series:
I have been photographing virtual environments since the end of 2007.
I felt a need to document these worlds because I see them as the new public spaces. I was grasped by their perfect beauty, most of the time copying our own real world. But with constant highlights of beauty. These documentary photographs evolved into a journey of research and questioning.
Is there a difference between a photograph of a simulated object and a photograph of the object taken in real life. Another interesting question, when does popular culture leave the copyright protected arena and become public domain? Aren’t captured experiences instantly the property of the viewer/capturer?
Black Rain is sourced from images collected by the twin satellite, solar mission, STEREO. Here we see the HI (Heliospheric Imager) visual data as it tracks interplanetary space for solar wind and CME’s (coronal mass ejections) heading towards Earth. Data courtesy of courtesy of the Heliospheric Imager on the NASA STEREO mission.
Working with STEREO scientists, Semiconductor collected all the HI image data to date, revealing the journey of the satellites from their initial orientation, to their current tracing of the Earth’s orbit around the Sun. Solar wind, CME’s, passing planets and comets orbiting the sun can be seen as background stars and the milky way pass by.
As in Semiconductors previous work ‘Brilliant Noise‘ which looked into the sun, they work with raw scientific satellite data which has not yet been cleaned and processed for public consumption. By embracing the artefacts, calibration and phenomena of the capturing process we are reminded of the presence of the human observer who endeavors to extend our perceptions and knowledge through technological innovation.
Gabriela Herman’s photography portfolio features a wide array of self portraits and photos from various travels.
As an animal lover I’ve always been sensitive to animal rights issues. However even the biggest steak loving, McDonalds eating, “I Love Hunting” carnivores will be touched by the amazing and shocking documentary!
In a sleepy lagoon off the coast of Japan lies a shocking secret that a few desperate men will stop at nothing to keep hidden from the world. At last, the truth of THE COVE comes to the fore in an act of covert filmmaking that turns a documentary into a gripping action-adventure thriller . . . and a heart-pounding call for help from the worlds oceans.
Do you stay awake at night dreaming of the day when you can interact with artists and designers from around the world? Do you get a warm & fuzzy feeling every time you walk by a bookstore or magazine stand? Have you always wanted to work side by side with the an elite group of creative minds who only use the finest office supplies such as golden staples? Do you enjoy nothing more than resizing and cropping a pile of photographs as tall as a 3 story building? If you answered yes to any of these (or none of these questions) then this just may be the internship for you!
Now that you feel excited about our internship opening read the fine detail after the jump!
Our intern Greg found this gem of a hip-hop video on Uproxx.com today. No this isn’t our attempt to expand the Beautiful/Decay audience and no we’re not quitting our day jobs to pursue our hip-hop dreams. After some digging we’ve confirmed that the rapper Skyzoo has in fact heard of our Brand and that the song title is referencing Beautiful/Decay. Thanks for the song Skyzoo! We’ve been waiting for a theme song.
Come to think of it this isn’t the first time a song has been named after Beautiful/Decay. Washington D.C. based metal shredders Darkest Hour also has a song called How The Beautiful/Decay. You may think this is a sheer coincidence but rest assured it’s not. I went to high school with two of the starting members of Darkest Hour and even designed their first EP. The “design” of the EP makes me cringe with embarrassment but hey I made it in our high school computer lab when i was 15!
Now that we’ve concurred the hip-hop and metal worlds I only have one dream… To have The Jonas Brothers sing a lil diddy called “Ode To The Beautiful/Decay!”
