Kameraet is a fun and silly video made by Marc Reisbig & Hanne Berkaak in 2009 for Gyldendal Education for a Norwegian digital educational website for children.

Shelley Heffler’s Topographical Paintings Explore The Flux Of Geological And Ideological Boundaries

Shelley Heffler - Painting, Sculpture Shelley Heffler - Painting, Sculpture Shelley Heffler - Painting, Sculpture Shelley Heffler - Painting, Sculpture

Shelley Heffler is a mixed media visual artist and educator based in Inglewood, California. Interested in globalism and the shifting of political and social boundaries, she creates “Altered Paintings,” painted sculptural objects that resemble road networks and natural topography. Using sharp lines mixed with layered tones, her works invoke everything from urban sprawl, to forested hills, to reinterpretations of famous landscape paintings (readers will be able to identify Van Gogh’s The Starry Night above).

In the following artist statement provided on her website, Heffler describes territory as at once fluid and ideological:

“Cartography and abstraction are two languages used in my work. I am interested in engaging the viewer on a journey that preexists language and generates ideas and messages that relate to the viewer personally and metaphorically. The works explore global concerns and shifting boundaries of society and politics. Imagery is derived from a variety of resources such as transit systems, ancient ruins, floor plans, city grids, topography and geography; time and space coexist in a compressed world.” (Source)

From a geological perspective, the structure of the earth is determined by strata, tectonic plates, and natural changes over time. Human society has overlaid these formations with urban habitats and demarcations of nation and identity. What Heffler seeks to explore in her work is the interplay between these natural and artificial concepts of terrain, deconstructing borders and thereby opening a discussion about our spatial relationship with each other and the lands we inhabit.

Rae Martini’s Evolved, Graffiti-Inspired Paintings

 

Rae Martini‘s work combines expressionistic urban texture with graffiti-infused flourishes of color. Throw ups, tags, and gradients are partially obscured by grime of every variety. Everything’s happening at once. What’s great about these is that they present an evolved aesthetic within the realm of graffiti without abandoning some its more classic techniques. See more from the Italian artist after the jump.

Banksy Sucks?

BANKSYsucks

We received an email today with the subject line: “anonymity is knowing everybody that knows of you” and the mysterious URL in the body: banksysucks.com. Followed the link to find the not-so-subtle .gif splash page above with a cheery midi rendition of the Cheers tune. (Presumably for its hook, “where everyone knows your name.”) Someone doesn’t like Bansky, I take it. Whether you love him or loathe him, Banksy has been the closest thing to this decade’s controversial Warholian art star. The site above clearly takes a jab at the fact that the identity of the internationally-famous British street artist is still “unknown.” Is Banksy still anonymous and “street” when the likes of Jude law and Brangelina shell out cool millions on his work? What do you think?

Design Watch: Vial’s Fida Folding Mat

Appealing design and intelligent function come together in Vial’s Fida Folding Mat.  The next time you need to sit on the ground, plan ahead and get yourself this mat. Turn heads at the park, and make people jealous of your good taste and better design sense. It’s reversible, sturdy, has a pocket to store your reading materials, packs up easily and my favorite part is that it folds into a backrest. If you have a birthday gift coming up, this would be an awesome thing to get.
