Robots is a new London-based artist collective specializing in site specific public art. Their gigantic sculptures are composed of really just trash. Reclaimed and recycled wood, old furniture people throw away – really taking the phrase, “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure” to heart. The New York Times even wrote an article about them. If you would like to learn more about Robot, check out their short documentary where the film follow this group during their build at the 2010 Secret Garden Party Festival.
I am really enjoying Cuban artist Jorge Rodriguez-Gerada’s work. Each surface he creates a painting on is at least 150 years old!
This video by Crystal Castles for their Baptism release is low budget as hell but gets the point across. Pull out your Halloween vampire teeth, start crying, put on some spandex, and jump around til you’re dizzy. Once you’re done take a deep breath and repeat!
There is something wrong in Jason Murphy’s portraits. He illustrates people who appear to have a few screws loose. Their often asymmetrical faces dawn either a look of certain absence or of urgent excitement. This is all contrasted of course by his beautiful, delicate mark-making that which feels so light, and feathery.
I genuinely enjoy some of Edward Lipski’s thickly applied mixed media sculptures. He works with all kinds of materials to create these amazingly entertaining, and somewhat creepy pieces.
This stop-motion animation of Tetris is just one part of French-Swiss artist Guillaume Reymond‘s project Game Over. Guillaume has also directed Space Invaders, and Pong! I haven’t heard anyone mention Pong in a long time.
Audrey May Erickson’s high energy illustrational style is perfect for grabbing attention. Look like punk rock flyers for a show or something.
