MDCCLXIV updates

Yes I know French gif artist MDCCLXIV has been a subject of our blog before, but I just wanted to share this image with you guys… this is how I feel right now. Dizzy and stuffed with colorful food. Still, 2 days after Thanksgiving.

Lady Gaga is Gaga!

I have to say, I was a bit skeptical over the whole Lady Gaga thing. But her new video is a spazzy and eccentric bizarre meta-pop ditty that mocks the very genre it has conquered……Completely over the top, replete with bear skin rug mantle cape dress, snake bejeweled lime green catsuit and platforms and more.

Jim Lambie Interview

As a musician myself I am always fascinated by the intersection between visual art and music. Jim Lambie is a musician who played in the Glasgow band Teenage Fanclub, and was also shortlisted for the Turner prize. His colorful installations often reappropriate pop cultural items in fresh ways. In this video he discusses his installation “Zobop,” which used vinyl tape on the floorspace of the Tate, to reveal the idiosyncrasies in the architecture in a dazzling floor display. Check out the Bay City Rollers album in his studio!

Akira Kurosawa’s Far Out Dreams

Many know seminal Japanese director Akira Kurosawa for his acclaimed Seven Samurai, but recently I stumbled across “Dreams,” surreal vignettes based off of his dreams. I like the idea of filming dreams- a little peak into his subconscious mind. Haunting, beautiful, bizarre.
