Clean, beautiful, and informative packaging design by Audree rethinks those nutritional figures we always take for granted. If everything we ate had this sort of packaging, would we still be eating it? Is ignorance bliss??

Buket

6a00d8341c630a53ef0120a5b85ad4970c-600wi1

Yesterday Los Angeles tagger Buket, aka 26-year old SJSU grad Cyrus Yazdani, was sentenced to nearly four years in prison after pleading guilty to one count of felony vandalism while on probation for 32 prior vandalism charges. Buket is apparently known for daredevil stunts, some of which have popped up in brazen, bravado-filled YouTube clips. One of these clips, which depicts Buket climbing onto a Hollywood Freeway overpass and tagging it in the middle of the day, is embedded in this post after the jump. While this particular stunt is clearly very dangerous to not only Buket but the drivers who were distracted by him, do the severity of his crimes justify the four year sentence?

Ji Yeo Examines Beauty Via Post Plastic Surgery Photographs

Originally from Seoul, Korea Ji Yeo now resides in Rhode Island. From 2009 – 2012 she worked on an extensive photography project entitled The Beauty in which she documented numerous women in Seoul, Korea immediately after they had undergone plastic surgery. With a sensitive demeanor Yeo highlights an aspect of our current culture that has become increasingly commonplace. Ji explains that “…Beauty is integral to human nature, and people find beauty in the most difficult circumstances, during emotional chaos and disorder, within social taboos and the breaking of such taboos and even in the face of death. My work focuses on ideas of “beauty” in contemporary culture, specifically in how women in our culture come to define and enforce an ideal of beauty on themselves…”

Christopher Charles Curtis’ Horror Movie World


Christopher Charles Curtis A.K.A. C3’s drawings explores a world the artist has created to better understand the darker parts of himself and humanity as a whole. This world is best described as a fairytale western with some horror film aspects. The characters are in a constant struggle to find their place in a world that is slowly crumbling all around them. As they foolishly try to save this world they find that not only are their attempts futile but their very efforts are contributing to the decline in civilization. It is a basic story of the few vs the many, honor and glory vs power and corruption.

Collaboration Between Artist And Photographer Yields A New Brand Of “Digitally Handcrafted” Images

Michael Cina has created a world-renowned career by fusing elements of both design and art into a signature style of technically-sound, visually striking, and uniquely glossy works. This approach has brought massive clients ranging from Facebook to Coca-Cola to MTV, as well as fine-art success. His latest efforts involved opening up control of his personal practice, however, as Cina worked side-by-side, though miles away, with a collaborator. For over a year, Cina and New York-based photographer John Klukas worked together to create a new body of work, which they began to call “digitally handmade” – a true synthesis of each creator’s respective styles. This collaboration yielded some twenty works, which are collected in the exhibition, She Who Saw Deep, at Minneapolis’ Public Functionary.

Beginning their complicated collaborative process with photos of the exhibition’s singular muse in Klukas’ New York studio, Cina then took the images and digitally overlaid his handmade paintings in his Minneapolis studio. Working the files back and forth between the two several times, the finished files were often so large and dense that they were as large as 16GB. These pieces were then printed and mounted, where Cina made final edits by hand – embellishing, spraying, drawing, and painting each piece to give them their own unique finish.

The digitally handcrafted images in She Who Saw Deep are then titled around the loose parallel of the Epic of Gilgamesh, “where the hero passes through the absolute darkness of grief, fear and death to be reborn into the light…the resulting works in this exhibit are both a visual and conceptual interpretation of this classic and universal human story.” Public Functionary, which offered support for the printing and creation of the works, is offering unique, limited-edition prints of these collaborative works, which can be purchased here.

She Who Saw Deep is currently on view now through July 13th at Public Functionary in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.
