We don’t often highlight web design, but I thought that this recent work by Ritxi Ostáriz was worth showing. The site uses a very interesting animated background that uses moving image in quite an entrancing and hypnotic way. Check out the website by clicking here.

I think that the web design of Angela Fan’s web page is fantastic. I’m loving the concrete poetry style and hoaky yet sophisticated use of imagery. Reminds me of Beau Johnson’s work, and my favorite old site by Curt Cloninger called Titler.com which is no longer online.
Beautiful/Decay presents a month-long series of art-based films to screen at the brand new Space 1520. This selection of films showcases a stunning array of creative concepts and ideas.

Anthony Record’s work with acrylic, burlap, acrylic and other materials is really taking me to that happy primary place. Looks like glitter is also involved.
David Shaw, one of the featured geniuses in issue Z, is opening his solo exhibition on april 30th in the Bowery. its the second of three exhibitions Feature inc. has curated on the theme “psycholoptical”.
Nick Blinko is considered an outsider artist. He also leads the relic punk band Rudimentary Peni. No one knows much about him other than a few smapshots of him and a few documents recording the time he spent in a psychiatric ward as a youth. subsequently, he believes that the anti-psychotics prescribed to him obstruct his creative impulses and spends long periods off of his medication, recording and creating detailed compositions of faces, coffins, figures, handwritten notes. I think appreciating his work helps if you are familiar with his music too. Surprise! he never made a website either.
I recently returned from a trip to Beatty NV, cutting up through Death Valley National Park. There is something interesting about abandoned buildings, how they are reclaimed by their environment in a way. One might assume it plausible compare architecture to living things in this way.
