Sisters of the Black Moon are like a sartorial witch’s coven that has astrally projected itself to infinitum to the dark side of the rainbow. I know that technically, they’re an eBay shop hawk(wind)ing mystically beautiful vintage pieces- but I love that they have taken that to a whole new interstellar dimension. With amazing photography by Alexandra Valenti, they are a dark force to be reckoned with. Reminiscent of Frank Zappa’s GTO’s, or an extremely heshin’ sorcery-inspired proto-metal band, these gals will have you sayin’ come to the sabbath in no time!
Holy weird marker on mylar drawings! I love Miriam Brumer’s half stoner, half new age hippie-dreamscape, half crystal batik visions…oh wait that’s one too many halves…but considering her work is trying to channel a new planar dimension, I figure following ordinary mathematics would be boring anyways.
Christiane Haase creates such strangely sexual/magical ceramic amulets. There were so many wonderful creature creations I had to post a million pictures after the jump…you really have to see her work in context with the other pieces to appreciate the full effect.
Ariana Page has discovered the skin’s reaction induced welts – light scraping, scratching, drawing with needles, etc and decided to turn it into art. A similar approach would be to fall into a very heavy and abyss-like sleep with your arm under your pillow the whole night and wake up with crop circles embossed into your skin.
It’s Friday and after a long week at the office I feel like dancin! By Electrocinema.
If you don’t want to shout “FUCK CHEVRON & TEXACO” at the end of watching Crude I’ll give you a dollar. I’m disgusted by yet another example of greedy corporate companies taking advantage of the innocent and the poor. Okay I’m done venting. Here is what Crude is about.
Three years in the making, this cinéma-vérité feature from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster) is the epic story of one of the largest and most controversial environmental lawsuits on the planet. The inside story of the infamous “Amazon Chernobyl” case, Crude is a real-life high stakes legal drama, set against a backdrop of the environmental movement, global politics, celebrity activism, human rights advocacy, the media, multinational corporate power, and rapidly-disappearing indigenous cultures. Presenting a complex situation from multiple viewpoints, the film subverts the conventions of advocacy filmmaking, exploring a complicated situation from all angles while bringing an important story of environmental peril and human suffering into focus.
