James Hopkins

James Hopkins
Every piece of James Hopkins’ work challenges the limits of human cognition. My favorites from his series (though they’re all really cool) are “Balanced Works”, many of which pieces in this feature various types of alcohol- drinking and balance? – good combination, and “Perspective Sculptures” containing erratically proportioned instruments that would make up a rock band.

New York artist Maya Hayuk has an awesome sense of humor and color. Her piece (above) “HANDS ACROSS THE UNIVERSE” was “made in collaboration with Iman’s aura.” Awesome!

Mark Portillo does gif portraits of his friends and celebrities (ie Obama with a rainbow gradient going across his face). He says he placed every pixel one by one and to please make his carpal tunnel worth it by clicking on the full images when you go to his website. I really like this guy doing speedy pushups.

Trash awareness project in Japan

Garbage Art Work Project
Does making trash bags cuter motivate litter-bugs to responsibly chuck their burger wrappers and soda cans into the patiently waiting heads of bags donning the faces of cute little rabbits and Sesame’s Oscar the Grouch? Japanese designers at MAQ Studio have started a whole “movement” around “playing with trash” in order to address and bring attention to the waste problem and how it effects the environment. To really reduce waste though, wouldn’t it have been better to just use recyclable materials to substitute for the dilemma of accumulating all these bags and not being able to do anything with them? I dunno…what do you guys think? Could this be more effective in Japan than it would be here? This sort of reminds me of those Novelty Bras I had posted about before…

Tibi Tibi Neuspiel

"lincoln / booth," 2009

Here’s some Saturday morning breakfast for you. Toronto artist Tibi Tibi Neuspiel makes “Assassination Sandwiches” of tragic political figures’ visages (as well as other alive and passed famed figures like Karl Max and Stephen Hawking) with incredible accuracy. Yum. The last image in this post of a carefully rendered scene from a Growing Pains episode, Youtube player and all, is pretty funny.

Ana Maraž
Ana Maraž has captured and lulled out of me (and into) the warmth of a late summer’s afternoon. I love that simplicity in the composition of these photographs still holds expressive qualities. They just make me so happy and dreamy…(I’m also listening to Nina Simone.)
