Windows of New York – An Illustrated Series

94-bank Windows of New York

I’m loving this project by Jose Guizar called “Windows of New York.” Every week, Jose walks the streets of his city streets in New York and documents the neighborhood windows. After picking out windows of interest, he takes them into illustrator and makes magic happen. In his own words: “I’m into all kinds of visual things, sharing good stuff with great people, and apparently, staring creepily at windows.” Check out a selection of Jose’s windows after the jump, and follow along at windowsofnewyork.com

Photographs Of Bullets Cut In Half Show You Ammo Like You’ve Never Seen Before

AMMO AMMO

For her series AMMO, Sabine Pearlman documented a collection of World War II era ammo with some 900 images.  The bullets are bisected to reveal its inner workings, like some kind of munitions autopsy.  The simple compositions burn off the vaguely violent shroud that envelops the images of bullets and their symbolism.  Instead, Pearlman presents the purely technical mechanisms of war, a reification of weaponary.  The photographs reveal the surprising amount of innovation and craft dedicated to causing physical harm.   [via]

Michael Steele’s Pop Culture Cluster Paintings

Michael Steele lives and works in Australia. He utilizes familiar elements from cartoons and films such as Back To The Future, Ghostbusters, Masters Of The Universe, and Star Wars to create pop culture cluster paintings. Typography, characters, weapons, landmarks, and other recognizable objects are consolidated into one large iconographic mass. Deciphering what the objects are sourced from allows for a dissection and assimilation of pop culture while also commenting on the bombardment of entertainment and advertisement.
