Angela Kelly Collaborates With Her 7 Year Old Son On Beautiful Photos Of Frozen Bubbles

o-115-900o-BUBBLE-900 (1) o-BUBBLES-900 (4)

Photographer Angela Kelly is yet another creative who is harnessing the current cold to create something special. Her newest photoseries came about when she mixed up a homemade bubble solution (a recipe which calls for dish soap, Karo syrup and water) with her 7-year old son Connor, and braved the early morning cold of Arlington, Washington to see what would happen to the bubbles in the frigid air. Of course, Kelly also brought her camera to document her experiment.

The resulting shots, a combination of high-definition close-ups and macroshots, capture the bubbles as they freeze into glass-like, fragile spheres. While some whither and shrink (like naturally-occurring cold balloons), others gently dropped to the ground like small crystal balls, while others cracked into shards. Says Kelly, “Sometimes in our quest to appreciate beauty, we take for granted even the simplest treasures that can be found in our own back yard.”

“Simply put, I want to encourage others to slow down and appreciate the little things,” she added. “I hope that viewers, when seeing this, are reminded that one is never too old to stop and enjoy the incredible beauty that is around them if they only look and to encourage their children to do the same.” (via huffington post)

Michael Dotson

Michael Dotson’s paintings look like tripped out buildings in another dimension of Second Life. Or in First Life, coated with thick layers of pastel and neon paint. I really like this fanciful approach to architecture.

Tom Howes Minutiae Interventions And Observations

Kalamazoo, Michigan based artist Tom Howes’ drawings, collages, and sculptures subverts both the seriousness and banality of  memories, ideologies, observations, and the minutiae of everyday life. Whether it’s with minimal engagement or a more expressive approach, he attempts to level the playing field between expectation and reality by directing attention to the obvious. In doing so, we learn that the obvious often remains subjective.

Jessica Stockholder Transforms City Streets Into Massive Colorful Installations

Jessica Stockholder - installation

Jessica Stockholder’s work first caught my eye when I saw images of her Color Jam, a word play on “traffic jam,” installed in a downtown intersection in Chicago in 2012.  The installation included sidewalks, streets, buildings, windows and doors.  It was a three-dimensional painting, of sorts, incorporating color and texture.  Beyond that though, the comings and goings of  Chicago’s inhabitants, yellow taxicabs, blue buses etc. augmented the effects of the work.

Stockholder seeks to undermine the preciousness of art.  By occupying public spaces she forces interaction and engagement with the work.  Visitors, whether they want to or not, become a part of the process and installation.  For another work, Flooded Chambers Maid, 2009-10, Stockholder re-imagined a portion of Madison Square Park.  Enthused park visitors, environment and weather all interacted with the installation, giving life to an otherwise static work.

A Neighborhood Tree Filled With Lit Chandeliers

Chandelier Tree from Colin Kennedy on Vimeo.

While finishing up a job in set building, make-up artist/photographer/designer Adam Tenebaum was given three chandeliers by the client.  Finding the chandeliers were to large for his house he naturally hung them in the tree outside.  Having a contracting license, Tenenbaum was easily able to light them.  Many chandeliers later the tree is now coin operating allowing passersby to enjoy the warm light (and partially offset a very large electric bill).  After passing the Chandelier Tree for some time Filmmaker Colin Kennedy decided to contact Tenenbaum and film a documentary about the neighborhood project.
