Jairus Tonel

Oh You Stupid Republicants.

Iron Grey Mammoth AKA Jairus Tonel presents some great mixed media work that combines cartoon icons from way back with current events. In the work above, Tonel is transforming the traditional republican elephant into “dumbo” a timeless disney character. This collision of conceptual and physical materials works together with current events to create something very relevant, thought-provoking, and comical.

 

Make something cool every day

"MSCE 1/07/09: i printed out a screen grab of the tool bar and asked my wife to hold it against the screen. "

"MSCE 1/07/09: i printed out a screen grab of the tool bar and asked my wife to hold it against the screen. "

…is the name of illustrator/design (and creative director at Carmichael Lynch in Minneapolis) Brock Davis’ project where he makes something every day. The way he approaches the daunting task of having to physically create a new object every day amazes me- his ideas are so fresh! I really feel like I will never look at the objects in the same way again! Smart design that’s hard to come by these days…

 

Makoto Aida

The Video on a Man Calling Himself Bin Laden Staying in Japan

First saw this video with a couple other shorts at the Redcat in Los Angeles in an event dedicated to new Japanese video art (though the title escapes me). I thought all his work would be similar but it was kind of shocking to see that the rest of them were really different…

The Presets – My People from Modular People on Vimeo.

Such a great song and a great video with a lot of green-screen action.

Jim Stoten’s Weird Little World

Pickle starburst sunglass wearing kings eating cupcakes and playing a toy-sized harpsichord. Contentedly surrounded squash loving computer techs. Eye painted wood sunglass flaps. Balloon heads of masks of masks. Ahh, Jim Stoten creates such a strange, weird and wonderful little world.

 

Michael Schouflikir

French artist Michael Schouflikir’s work revolves the daily struggles we have with technology & modern human condition. Basically, the condition of our machines and nature that becomes more and more machine-like. We’re beat out and attacked by overgrown plants, take escalators towards our certain future of decapitation, and develop USB flash drives as bones. But don’t we kind of like it?
