Franco Brambilla

Mixing vintage with sci-fi

Hotel Ambasciatori

Franco Brambilla seems to have taken our most odd dreams and brought them to some kind of reality. Is it a painting? A photograph? Something else entirely, or all of the above? I love the feeling of as if I were watching To Catch a Thief or The Sound of Music on the newly-dubbed “Sy-Fy” channel.

TIAM (This is a Magazine)

This is a Magazine was founded in 2002 in Milan Italy by Donnachie, Simionato & Son. This project includes a compendium of award-winning work, available on the internet and in the magazine. TIAM is the 6th printed Compendium and it refers to science-fiction writer Philip K. Dick’s final novel “Valis” and the protagonist’s interaction with an extra-terrestrial pink laser beam (Obviously a great foundation for the creation of cool artwork). The combination of these pieces work together to make an elaborate pop-up book full of beautiful but strange work.

Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini

Chilean designer and illustrator Alvaro Arteaga Sabaini has a wide scope of work in genres from band illustrations to product marketing. I love the one above titled “Ziggy Stardog”! We have a Ziggy Stardog too in the office too, but he doesn’t look like that one.

Miranda July celebrates the movie extra

Miranda JulyMiranda July
Miranda July, author, director, actress, photographer, master of capturing pre and post pubescent awkwardness, and as a character who has risen to status somewhat similar to that of a cult icon…has done it again. Our friend Graham at Future Shipwreck has written a nicer summary of her project than I could ever…so here it is! “In the language of cinema, extras are designed to be forgotten. Miranda July’s recent series of photos (a collaboration with Roe Ethridge), in which she unthinkably excavates background players from historically popular films and poses herself in homage to these bygone human props, is a declaration of war on the finality of culture. She dares to reverse the mandate of natural selection.” I wonder though, how she chose the particular films and extras that she did. Were they just arbitrarily picked? Or did she think aesthetically about which movies and which scenes from those movies that the most interesting looking extras?

Gleaming The Video Game!

I usually don’t like viral videos that promote products but this is really creative and unique. 36 Freeborders re-create a giant falling block video game down the streets of San Francisco at night. It’s like Gleaming The Cube meets Tetris… Awesome!

Tipper Gore Is A Photographer?

Tipper Gore Photography

I know that Democrats are supposed to be hip and that most artists “Baracked the vote” but I was blown away when I stumbled onto the photography of Tipper Gore. Am I crazy or are these really great photographs? I could see these images in Time (maybe even National Geographic) magazine any day of the week. My hats off to Tipper. I’m truly impressed. More images after the jump.

Marilyn Minter Update

Marilyn Minter loves lips. Her recent photography shown here on B/D before, is of models eating and licking all kinds of things. This video, Green Pink Caviar, is an eight minute high definition video by her. She filmed the models licking candy and cake decoration, from under a panel of glass. Yum.

Paintball Pop Art


It’s fun to see how something so violent, like paintball guns, could be used to make something so beautiful like Marilyn Monroe. I mean the skills and accuracy to execute this painting are amazing though… awesome teamwork guys! I am sure Andy Warhol would be oh so proud.
