Discontinued film stock has become an obsession amongst fine art photographers, and pretty much everyone else (at least the imitation of it even–think instagram filters). New York-based photographer Daniel Zvereff is no exception. In one of his recent series, Introspective,  Zvereff uses some of the last remaining supply of expired Kodak Aerochrome film in 120 format and takes it to the Arctic–a place as endangered as the film itself.

A travel journalist and photographer, Zvereff looks for the picturesque and the mundane- a good mixture of the two brings forth an interesting and stunning collection of photographs from all over the world- including the ones found here, which were taken in very remote parts of the Arctic.

The usage of the expired film showcases brilliantly unusual but beautifully colored mountains, graveyards, and highways in the brief, verdant Arctic summer are stained in otherworldly pinks and purples.

The now discontinued Aerochrome, was originally developed for the military to help them detect camouflage from helicopters: It responds the chlorophyll in plants and reverses green colors into lavenders and magentas and browns into deep blues.

“The Arctic will essentially be the next frontier for mining natural resources, and with a warming climate it’s safe to say it will soon be transformed as we know it, forever, It only seemed appropriate to photograph its incredible natural beauty using a film that is no longer in existence.”

Nick Georgiou’s Newspaper Paintings

Nick Georgiou creates grotesque yet mesmerizing works that blur the lines between sculpture and painting with his works. Using discarded newspapers and magazines, Nick re-imagines the material in surprising ways bending, folding, and cutting it into relief paintings as well as life size sculptures.

Interactive Sound Sculpture Pavilion for the Olympic Games

As part of Coca Cola’s Move to the Beat program for the 2012 Olympics, London design partners Asif Khan and Pernilla Ohrstedt put together the Coca Cola Beatbox pavilion in the Olympic Park, an interactive architectural installation composed of 200 translucent air cushions. The cushions respond to movement from pavilion visitors with sound and light, effectively remixing a track commissioned by the bottling company for the Games. Different areas in the structure emit various sports-themed sounds like sneakers squeaking on the court and recorded heart rates. This one’s probably not for the claustrophobic, but London is definitely the place to be right now. Concept sketches and more images of the musical pavilion after the jump. (via)

Izumi Miyazaki Creates Humorously Surreal Photos Out Of Mundane Moments

Izumi Miyazaki - Photography

18-year-old Izumi Miyazaki arranges her daydreams into surreal photographs that are filled with deadpan humor. Each photo is manipulated so that the mundane becomes a little more magical. From levitating candy hearts to snow made of rice, Miyazaki ups the mystique with a wink of the eye.

By putting herself in the spotlight as the main subject, Miyazaki frees herself to being able to play with subtle changes in expression. Her photographs also call upon themes of identity and coming of age purely based on context. Because most of her artwork is staged in everday locations, they can almost be read as a visual diary of emotions.

The pure fun of Miyazaki’s photos is that they can be interpreted any number of ways: As a teenager’s creative way to express herself — or the product of a quirky overactive imagination. (via Juxtapoz)

Robert Connett‘s stab at humanity through sea creature and insect inspiration makes for one confusing trip. Meshed with outlandish psychedelic flair the creatures of each painting truly come alive and scenes of money missiles and nuclear waste bring clarity to the confusion.

Jee-Shaun Wang’s Graphic Drawings


Jee-Shaun Wang’s drawings are intricate, energetic, and tons of fun. He combines graphic novels with japanese woodblocks, cave painting, and indigenous art of the Americas, but instead of princesses or warriors, Wang gives us actresses eating hotdogs at drive-ins, RV campers, and army tanks.  The flatness in these drawings gives everything equal importance which makes you look at every single part with a constantly wandering eye. And everywhere you look you get to find more stories and things you love–a spilled pot of boiling moodles, invented badges, patterns, etc. Stop what you’re doing and take your eyeballs for a walk!

Repository: Brian O’Reilly via Jon-Kyle


 

Why is it that with the ease of publishing available today people so often choose to re-post content as opposed to create it?  Jon-Kyle asks. We don’t take offense, as we make plenty art…. we just like giving unknown artists a little bit of light… anyway, Jon-Kyle has responded by creating a Repository, in curating culture. The above video, created by a computer that manipulates raster videos, is scary and amazing. Invented in the the 1970’s, the machine is refered to as a Rutt/Etra Scan Processor. We’re not sure you can find it on Ebay… but if anyone see’s one, nothing’s wrong with an early Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa present!
