Angela Fan

 

 

angela-fan-is-deadI 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.

Booooooom Project #8! Music Video…

Our dear friend Jeff over at Booooooom recently launched a cool new interactive project for all his readers- he will be making a viral music video for the band Choir of Young Believers, comprised ENTIRELY of footage submitted by YOU! Get all the details on how to enter here.
I’m pretty into his “idea checklist”:

 

A-Z Idea Checklist – Feel free to use all or none of these ideas:

a) interpretive dance (i hope some of you go this direction)
b) costumes (elaborate or subtle)
c) sunrise, sunset
d) face paint
e) an open field (corn or otherwise)
f) kites
g) find all the instruments and perform the song correctly
h) fake everything
i) cinéma vérité (move the camera! go wild!)
j) build elaborate sets (or film it all under a blanket on your bed)
k) robots
l) literal or magical
m) perform on a rooftop (a building not a car… well its up to you)
n) paper mache
o) temporary tattoos
p) animals
q) cardboard and duct tape
r) mirrors
s) sunglasses
t) in the mall food court
u) underwater?
v) beautiful people or ugly people
w) smoke machine
x) flashlights
y) lens flares
z) mustaches

 

I have to say my favorites would have to be a, b, d, l, r, and, quite obviously (everyone knows my penchant for facial hair here), Z!

What Do Curators Want?

A great series of podcasts by Side Street Projects with various Los Angeles based dealers and museum curators discussing what they look for in art. Some of my favorite interviews include Aimee Chang from the Hammer Museum, and Jeff Poe from Blum&Poe. It’s a great insiders look into not only the LA art scene but into the minds of some of the cities best curators.

Friend of B/D and all around good guy Terence Hannum has a batch of  new drawings on his site that are worth a look or two. Terence  works in a wide variety of mediums from video to painting, always creating work revolving around his continued fascination and exploration of music.  Keeping with his interests in music, Terence is also active in the Chicago music scene with is band Locrian, whose sound can best be described as a blend of noise, power electronics, dark ambient, and black metal.

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.
