On a recent visit to The Center for Photography in Woodstock, New York I had the pleasure of viewing the works of Justine Reyes. A series entitled Vanitas included photographs reflecting old Dutch still lifes in a similar vain but with a most sharp and contemporary air that was both refreshing and humorous.
Jimmy Joe Roche has a brand spankin’ new website…including a page entitled “labyrinth” which stacks Jimmy’s various videos, causing a seizural-wall of epileptic sound. Other fun stuff….Mac software entitled “Slime Pulse,” which, in the artists words is a “standalone generative noise software for the Mac OS.” Check it out!
An amazing project taken on by two groups/individuals which I very much revere: Champagne Valentine & Aaron Meyers (responsible for YouCube)’ latest collaborative creation uses augmented reality (and a QR code which you download and print out) to create a virtual musical instrument. The future is so promising!
Tonight marks the Los Angeles debut of the fourth (and greatest) chapter in the PARTY FOOD performance art series, P4RTY FOOD 4 by Joseph Gillette at Synchronicity Space LA. This performance contains all our favorite things: poop jokes, puppetry, bad puns, politics, people, and liiiiittle piggies. It’ll be a ONE-NIGHT-ONLY event so don’t miss out. Duh.
Alright B/D fans! Many of you have been asking us to get more shops in our stockist list so we thought it would be appropriate to have you suggest some good shops in your area that would be a good fit for B/D. Please suggest shops that carry art or design books or boutiques that carry other similar publications. It would be helpful if you could give us the shop name, website(if they have one), and location/phone number. If you want to go one step further run into your favorite bookstore/shop and demand that they carry Beautiful/Decay! You can have them email [email protected] to get wholesale info. With your help we’ll get the books in a quality shop near you!
This post goes out to all the 9-5ers stuck behind a desk, staring at the white office walls and pretending to be busy, whenever the boss walks by. If there was no boss to check up on you, what would you do inside that office? I see you looking at your nearest stapler. Baptiste Debombourg has lived out your fantasy. Baptiste created these large scale figures with over 35,000 staples. Now someone needs to follow in Baptiste’s footsteps and make a paper clip tapestry.
