Mirko Martin Photographs

Some great photographs of arrests and car crashes in Mirko Martin’s portfolio. From the looks of it he must work in the movie industry.

Tim Roda’s MacGuyver-ed Mysticism

TimRoda7

Tim Roda’s photographs seem to create ancient and historical scenes of magic and myth through slightly improvised, found materials. The above image, “Centaur” is striking for its oscillation between a certain kind of epic grandeur and a bizarre, seedy perversion. Many of his images superficially appear to be from some near-distant canon of royalty, though quickly dissolve into household snapshots. There’s something youthful as well in their innocent attempts at grandeur with just a little imagination, always infused with some kind of borderline hint at violence or conflict.

Oh, Brother

Most car commercials are boring. This one is imaginative, funny, and creative.

Craigslist’s missed connections is addicting for multiple reasons. It’s easy to spend all day reading about the possible love stories that surround us all day, and its also nice to read about people that may or may not be more desperate than yourself. Either way, Sophia Blackall’s illustrations of missed connections is the perfect accompaniment to otherwise image-less stories.

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.

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?
