Shih-Mao

I know virtually nothing about “Shih-Mao” except that he is from Taiwan and he is male (thank you, Flickr profile). His illustrations are fantastic, often depicting some kind of twisted alternate dimension where everything is incredibly weird and visceral.

Mindy Kober

Delaware

Delaware

Hailing from Houston, TX (home of the Geto Boys) and holding an MFA from Cornell, artist Mindy Kober paints scenes inspired by the images on the backs of those state commemorative quarters. Inspired is the operative word here – Kober uses a great deal of imagination in her humorous recreations of the scenes, often incorporating imagery from current American pop culture.

Interactive Music Video by Champagne Valentine

06

Champagne Valentine, an Amsterdam based digital new media creative boutique, recently created this amazing interactive music video for Placebo’s “The Never-Ending Why.” The video takes viewers on a fanciful, creature-filled trip. Sort of a mix between Tibetan-mandalic psychedelia and French turn of the century daguerreotypes. Stunning! And the best part is that you can control the scenery and monsters by pointing and clicking your mouse! I am constantly amazed by the breaking of boundaries between viewer/media, and I feel like this video bridges the gap in a playful fashion….fitting for the performative aspect of a rock band. Click here to interact with the video- some stills after the jump!

Interview: Jeff Eisenberg

Jeff Eisenberg

Jeff Eisenberg creates almost Rorschach-like images that hover somewhere between structural vector flights of futuristic fancy and strange biomorphic organisms. Conducted on multiple layers of mylar, they could almost be strange architectural blueprints for a sci-fi movie. He also works in the less common medium of sound installation. All inspired by automatic-writing creative exercises, the works have a strange, abstracted linguistic impulse. Read the full interview detailing Jeff’s studio practice, sources of inspiration and his unique brainstorming process.
