First saw this video with a couple other shorts at the Redcat in Los Angeles in an event dedicated to new Japanese video art (though the title escapes me). I thought all his work would be similar but it was kind of shocking to see that the rest of them were really different…
Pickle starburst sunglass wearing kings eating cupcakes and playing a toy-sized harpsichord. Contentedly surrounded squash loving computer techs. Eye painted wood sunglass flaps. Balloon heads of masks of masks. Ahh, Jim Stoten creates such a strange, weird and wonderful little world.
French artist Michael Schouflikir’s work revolves the daily struggles we have with technology & modern human condition. Basically, the condition of our machines and nature that becomes more and more machine-like.

This is just a fraction of the digital Valhalla Bo Lee created with his fresh new html/art piece “The Elephant“. I cant promise that this page will provide you with all the answers, but it begins with a poem that put my entire, boring life into depressing context.

Jagel recently contributed a lovely interview detailing his process, his approach to composition, inspiration, and much more.

Over 4700 wild animals were admitted as sick or injured in the city of Toronto last year. This may seem like a steep number for a town of less than 3 million. One might ask themselves if there might be other intentions involved in creating this statistic.
