Joe Diebes

Joe Diebes is one of those guys who is so smart you can feel the smartness coming off them in waves, like heat on blacktop. I don’t pretend to understand what he’s thinking, but like Potter Stewart explained hard core porno by saying “I know it when I see it,” it’s easy to see something intense happening in Diebes’ sound and video collage.  He created a recording of a musician, the cellist Rubin Kodheli, and then sort of collaged it back together using a mathematical algorithm.  One interesting conceptual aspect of this video, Scherzo, is that it never repeats.  And I don’t mean that it doesn’t repeat in this little one minute snippet, I mean that if you played it for one hundred years and sat there – it wouldn’t repeat the same sequence twice.  I told you, this guy’s smart.  You can see Scherzo at Paul Rodgers 9w gallery until December 2nd, and at the Liverpool Biennial until November 28th.

The Influencers

A great cast of creative thinkers come together to discuss the art of influencing pop culture. Love the concept and execution but the images of the statue every 5 seconds makes me think they are trying to virally sell me something. I hope that’s not the case as that would ruin the entire video for me. Either way worth giving a look.

Otto Rap’s Grotesque Graphite

Otto Rap hides these grotesque imagery in a delicate, graphite-rendered haze. Otto’s illustrations exude a natural flow of dark noise that vibrates with raw energy. But the way he executes it all, in a kaleidoscope explosion of beautiful pattern making, is what really does it for me.
