The Sensual World

"The Sensual Presidents of the United States (1984)" by Eric Timothy Carlson. He took a presidential calendar and replaced all their faces with roses.


Here are some pictures that I took from the Synch Space opening two Saturdays ago to cobble together a follow up post albeit, ahem, very tardy (the show closed this past Saturday). It was really hilarious and awesome to see so many different interpretations of Kate Bush’s image and persona. Though, to tell you the truth, I don’t know too much about her and read up only about her the day before the opening (yikes!). I hope you won’t judge me on that admission tooo much.

Michael Mapes’ Dissected Portraits

Michael Mapes Boxed collages house thousands of individual specimens consisting of dissected photographs and biographical DNA in the form of such things as hair, finger nails, scent, eye lashes, fingerprints, food, botanical elements, fabric swatches, makeup, dirt, handwriting samples and breath. The human specimens reflect the artist’s interest in the role of creative science as lab threatens to supplant studio in his own work. Representations of the specimen are dissected and then reconstructed through artistic interpretation invoking entomological, forensic and artistic methods. (via)

Awesome Video Of The Day: Robot Makes Paintings

 

I always thought that robots would one day make all the art in the world but I never imagined that the day would be so near. Benjamin Grosser’s Interactive Robotic Painting Machine uses artificial intelligence to paint its own body of work and to make its own decisions. While doing so, it listens to its environment and considers what it hears as input into the painting process. In the absence of someone or something else making sound in its presence, the machine, like many artists, listens to itself. Watch a video of the robot in action after the jump!

Hasisi Park

Hasisi Park
Hasisi Park’s photos are at times crude yet tragically endearing. She’s worked with clients like Converse, various fashion lines for Seoul Fashion Week, and has also been featured in a couple fashion/art magazines. I love Hasisi’s info page, as the items listed there have almost nothing to do with usual bullets info pages and CVs, but instead reveals happenings that perhaps impacted her creative work. Though it’s difficult to truly understand someone through looking at a webpage, I feel like I’ve become to feel her work a little bit more.
