Loveseat, 2005

Loveseat, 2005

Richard Hughes is an artist living and working in London. Although there hasn’t been any recent work from him, one of my favorite pieces would have to be Loveseat, 2005. From 2003 to 2008, he has produced a variety of works that one way or another seem to address this methodical juxtaposition between urban decadence of objects and organic matter.

Sculptures of Dreams

lieberman_04

Ilan Lieberman creates sculptures and artwork based on visions he sees in his dreams. I’m fascinated by the other realm that lays just beyond our own eyelids, and how Ilan transports objects and ideas from this dimension into ours…it’s like peeking into someone else’s mind. Ilan recently opened his exhibition this last weekend at Steve Turner Contemporary, so if you are in the area be sure to check it out.

Robot ethics becoming a concern with corpse-feeding droids on the battlefield

EATR
I heard this discussion over the ethics of killer robots (ENERGETICALLY AUTONOMOUS TACTICAL ROBOT, appropriately shortened to “EATR”) on the battlefield on KPCC radio bright ‘n’ early this morning and became excited over the possibility of science fiction plot lines inching closer and closer to reality. This picture above will not be what they look like (a more accurate modeled depiction after the jump), but how frightening would it be if these self-refueling lovelies really did jump into the uncanny valley? The government is trying to make more “ethically” aware EAT(E)Rs that will reject tasty corpse morsels on the battlefield (this is apparently against the Geneva convention?) for more Brontosaurus-friendly scraps. The question comes then, if your robot kills someone on the battlefield, who’s moral dilemma does it become? Obviously robots are not of a sentient mind to make such decisions…or are they?

Anouk Schneider

Anouk Schneider is a photographer born in Switzerland that currently works and lives in London. One of her latest personal works that I found quite interesting is a photographic book project that documents the life of a girl named, Roxanne. The project went on from 2000-2006 and it documents intimate details about her life. It is a quite interesting and long project with images that do not disappoint. Her website also has a variety of commissioned and more personal projects.

Awesome Video Of The day: If Only By Sondre Lerche

&nbps;

It’s Monday once again and my head is in the clouds so why not start the week with a bizarre and funny video from Sondre Lerche. I’m not sure if Sondre is a nutty dude or has taken one too many hits of acids but judging by his home made suit of armor, post hippie group choreography, and fat guys in elvis style outfits flying through the air that something just isn’t right in his creative head.

Ryan Pierce

Colorful acrylic paintings by artist Ryan Pierce - surreal, possibly telling of an impending doom, the absence of man leaves animals to wander through our remains.  I wonder, can you eat birds like this?

Tim Sullivan

Tim Sullivan has created a sensory experience at the Steve Turner Contemporary not to be missed if you’re in the LA area this weekend.  Large, 4-ft polycarbonate plastic discs will play modified versions of songs like “Hotel California” from the gallery walls in addition to playing from a large record player all created by Sullivan.  

The artist’s work “continues to be inspired by various subcultures of California|Hollywood, hippies, death cults, sun worship, surf culture and Heavy Metal|and how they entered pop culture..”

This is awesome…
