Stephanie Davidson’s Internet Piles

Stephanie Davidson makes digital collages out of everyday objects. This may sound like an overly simple concept but her selection of objects and their arrangements are both bizarre and humorous. The  Cornrow pile after the jump is by far my favorite.

Antic Staatsoper’s Renaissance Inspired Photo Series Examines Man’s Desire

staatsoper photographystaatsoper photographystaatsoper photographystaatsoper photography
Antic staatsoper makes photographs which reference old religious renaissance paintings. These include themes about love, lust, faith, shame, and betrayal. The pictures created are striking and controversial. The nude and partially nude models are manipulated in such a way that they transform into more painterly forms. Staatsoper uses a technique which blurs the image to produce a hazy mind altering effect. The overall results are violently striking images which bring age old stories to light. The idea of carnal desire is present but not only in a sexual sense. There’s also the notion of an abnormal attraction to food and drugs. And a desire for power. The artist talks about our current state of spirituality which seems compromised from the old way of thinking. This is an astute conclusion as more earthly ways have come to define us and become more prevalent in “current religions”. Still, we are aware of a higher power whether imagined or real it surrounds us with the question of why am I here and for what reason? In that sense, Staatsoper captures the uncertainty we feel in extreme situations which usually define us. From an aesthetic viewpoint the work is powerfully done in its moving and raw depiction of circumstance. Using figures seemingly pulled from greek tragedy we see them in a modern light tracing our historical significance.

Resn

resnSo these guys at Resn kill it, and say it best themselves…. “Resn believes in creating pretty things from absolutely nothing… is that possible? To drive hard without brakes and crash in a fiery ball of flaming metal as brakes are for losers. Holding your head close to the speakers stack at Concert of Life all you hear is the bass, which makes you go deaf. So don’t be silly, stand at the back with us where all the hot chicks dance. Away from all the sweaty people.” They have a point. Make sure to check out more of these crazy New Zealand Kiwis.
