“In my paintings I use the violence and romantic sadness of the natural landscape to provoke a sense of fragility and melancholic instability beneath the surface of the image. I like to use a variety of images that are beautiful and sad with natural elements that can also be seen to parallel the worst parts of our human animalistic behaviors.” -Sarah Emerson

 

There is a sense in Sarah’s work of sadness and impending doom that i really enjoy.

The Morbid Crystal Covered Sculptures of Nicola Bolla

The work of Nicola Bolla is arresting in its contrasts.  The artist often fashions sculptures of straightforward (albeit morbid) objects that are then covered in sparkling crystals.  The glamorous glitter of the crystal is juxtaposed against the utilitarian nature of many of the objects they cover.  These are further contrasted in these images taken by photographer Sergio Alfredini.  The dilapidated house provides a strangely ideal setting to emphasize these brightly dark sculptures.

Who Killed The Electric Car?

If you don’t remember last year gas prices were through the roof in the states. Immediately everyone was wondering why we weren’t switching to futuristic electric vehicles. This movie has some of the answers for why we are going at a snail pace towards a cleaner, more efficient world.

 

 
With gasoline prices approaching $4/gallon, fossil fuel shortages, unrest in oil producing regions around the globe and mainstream consumer adoption and adoption of the hybrid electric car (more than 140,000 Prius’ sold this year), this story couldn’t be more relevant or important. The foremost goal in making this movie is to educate and enlighten audiences with the story of this car, its place in history and in the larger story of our car culture and how it enables our continuing addiction to foreign oil. This is an important film with an important message that not only calls to task the officials who squelched the Zero Emission Vehicle mandate, but all of the other accomplices, government, the car companies, Big Oil, even Eco-darling Hydrogen as well as consumers, who turned their backs on the car and embrace embracing instead the SUV. Our documentary investigates the death and resurrection of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in our country’s future; issues which affect everyone from progressive liberals to the neo-conservative right. Written by Richard D.

Robert William Overweg’s Virtual photographs

Robert William Overweg's virtual photographs

Description of Robert William Overweg’s “Documenting Current Spaces” series:

I have been photographing virtual environments since the end of 2007.

I felt a need to document these worlds because I see them as the new public spaces. I was grasped by their perfect beauty, most of the time copying our own real world. But with constant highlights of beauty. These documentary photographs evolved into a journey of research and questioning.

Is there a difference between a photograph of a simulated object and a photograph of the object taken in real life. Another interesting question, when does popular culture leave the copyright protected arena and become public domain? Aren’t captured experiences instantly the property of the viewer/capturer?
