Remi Rebillard is a French photographer who’s editorial imagery definitely deserves a second look. The beautiful morbid models are accessorized with medical supplies and a wheel chair making the mood in the photographs tense. What also makes them particularly interesting is the playful approach in lighting and the almost dead-like posing of the models.
Speaking of “festering goodness/grossness”, check out these music videos directed by artist, pervy collage-ist, animator and I guess sort of a Japanese equivalent of Paper Rad, Sekitani Norihiro. They’ll be sure to accompany you into seizures induced by metal death, mashed sound bits and flailing bloody organs. Also be sure to get a good look at the artwork on Sekitani’s site (which is hosted on Geocities, RIP Geocities free hosting!).
Artist Chris Dorosz uses a unique painting technique. He drips paint droplets onto plastic rods. When arranged the rods form a three dimensional image, a pointillism like sculpture. Step back from the screen for a moment – the disparate dots congeal to from images of people. The fact that this is similar to the way a low resolution digital image works is not an accident. Dorosz revels in the idea of the drop as a basic unit of constructing a painting. He says:
“Out of material discovery I began to regard the primacy of the paint drop, a form that takes shape not from a brush or any human-made implement or gesture, but purely from its own viscosity and the air it falls through, as analogous to the building blocks that make up the human body (DNA) or even its mimetic representation (the pixel).”
pro snowboarder and filmmaker ANDREW HARDINGHAM is a fun-crazy-wild rider who likes to get weird… and I love it. This video is what I like to call as a bio on his life. From first discovering fire to boobs, Andrew went through some changes…

Studio Bertjan Pot likes to experiment. they pride themselves on picking up a new material and pushing the boundaries of what it’s intended to be used for. Such is the case of these wonderful masks that were created during an attempt to make carpets. (via baubauhaus)
“Although seemingly these masks tell stories, this again started out as a material experiment. I wanted to find out if by stitching a rope together I could make a large flat carpet. Instead of flat, the samples got curvy. When I was about to give up on the carpet, Vladi came up with the idea of shaping the rope into masks. The possibilities are endless, I’m meeting new faces every day.”
