Artist Mike Barzman sent in this video today. The Audio is from one of the worlds greatest minds, Steven Hawking. I’m assuming it’s from a lecture or interview. Either way it makes for an interesting mix. Can’t go wrong with computerized voice and slow motion destruction.
We’re taking the day off from blogging today to celebrate a lil place on earth called America. Sure we have some problems and our government is far from perfect but after living around the world I can honestly say that I’m proud to be part of our great nation. Having the freedom to say and do whatever we want is priceless so let us all take this day and appreciate our our home and make a commitment to make it even better. We’ll be hitting up the beach and eating way too much food (like any patriot) all day long but we’ll be back tomorrow with loads of posts and other goodies to keep you inspired and entertained!
Jiang Pengyi‘s latest series, Everything Illuminates, sees the artist mixing fluorescent powders with liquid wax, and applying it to various, commonly-found objects. Pengyi then documents these applications, capturing in a time a brief moments where the objects were not just illuminated, but focused on for consideration through art. According to the Hunan-Province-born artist’s statement, these images “suggest the artist’s changing focus back to original form and shape, at the same time reflect his current state of mind.”
Pengyi was recently selected to participate in Artshare.com’s group showing of note-worthy Chinese artists born between 1977 and 1987, called Another Light. The show’s catalogue references the artist’s past works, which focused on the rapidly-evolving city and industrial spaces in China, and a slowing down in focus for his newer works, where each object becomes precious and unique. “In Jiang’s Everything Illuminates series, the mystique of autonomous objects is revealed in delicate depiction…Through the passage of time, these objects slowly take on their new forms on film and emit individual signals from their uncommon glow, as they emerge in a bewitching existence.” (via skumar and mymodernmet)
