Luke O’Sullivan’s 3D work is like walking straight into a pop up book. He uses screenprint on wood to create some amazing 3D landscapes.
French artist Framix released a short film/music video called “The Mistake”, a wild west adventure with bunnies, pterodactyls, and giant tarantulas and iguanas. The animation starts with epic composite landscapes and by the end becomes a neon video game inspired fantasy world.
Enjoy the full 11 minute short at their site.
Rob Bondgren is an artist coming out of Chicago. His artwork takes a bit of reality and pushes it into a hallucinogenic state.
Jason Mena lives in San Juan, Puerto Rico, and uses cameras, scanners, airplanes, and whatever he can get his hands on to examine his surroundings. His work explores city life, traffic, politics, and relationships in creative and funny ways. Check out more of his work at his site and hit the jump for more work including his great “Meaningless Work” where he records himself moving around furniture aimlessly.
Jowhara AlSaud makes hybrid photo/drawings that dance with anonymity and censorship. Jowhara started working with this subject after noticing commercial photos altered in Saudi Arabia, seeing “…skirts lengthened and sleeves crudely added with black markers in magazines or blurred out faces on billboards.” She then applied the censors’ language to her personal photographs. The work is strangely readable for giving so few clues away.
Daniel Shea’s new series “Plume” is an ongoing photographic examination of coal-fired power plants in Southeast Ohio. The plants loom in his photos, part of the daily lives of the residents. The photos are poignant and revealing. If you would like to support Daniel’s ongoing series you can buy a print, and if you’d like to see more of his projects, like his awesome Baltimore series, check out his website.
