JeongMee Yoon’s current work, “The Pink and Blue Projects” explores the trends in cultural preferences and the differences in the tastes of children (and their parents) from diverse cultures, ethnic groups as well as gender socialization and identity. The work also raises other issues, such as the relationship between gender and consumerism, urbanization, the globalization of consumerism and the new capitalism. The topic seems to be well tread territory already but it’s still crazy to visualize. Some of the poses that these kids strike are interesting too.

Jennifer Krantz Paints Chaos

jennifer Krantz

We haven’t posted any abstract paintings in a while so I thought post some work by Rockford Illinois painter Jennifer Krantz. These paintings have everything in them from fire crackers to spray paint to sequins. Although some of the work reminds of Fiona Rae I think Jennifer gets a pass for creating such fun chaos.

André Kertész’s body warp in the 1930′s

André Kertész

André Kertész (1894 – 1985), was a Hungarian-born photographer known for his groundbreaking contributions to photographic composition and by his efforts in establishing and developing the photo essay. In the early years of his lengthy career, his then-unorthodox camera angles, and his unwillingness to compromise his personal photographic style, prevented his work from gaining wider recognition.

YACHT’s music video for “Psychic City (Voodoo City)”

YACHT is a Band, Belief System, and Business conducted by a duo with presence in of Marfa, Texas and Portland, Oregon, USA. All people are welcome to become members of YACHT. Some items on the YACHT Mission Statement include but are not limited to: “YACHT is about group consciousness. YACHT is about the individual man or woman. If you believe these assertions to be contradictory, consider the Triangle: it is both a collection of points and a shape…the Triangle is also a concept map between three points. But it is not merely a concept…YACHT encourages online dissemination of all things…YACHT IS NOT A CULT.”

It all sounds and looks mildly trite but sort of very genuine in its childlike and enthusiastically declared motto like kids declaring a new land for themselves on a treehouse. The video is shot with some incredible hi-def camera and it’s crispness makes it serious and funny at the same time. There’s also a really awkward (and not very appealing in my opinion) desert makeout scene towards the end.
