"Between You and I", 2006


British artist Anthony McCall (born 1946) has a cross-disciplinary practice in which film, sculpture, installation, drawing and performance overlap. McCall was a key figure in the avant-garde London Film-makers Co-operative in the 1970s and his earliest films are documents of outdoor performances that were notable for their minimal use of the elements, most notably fire. After moving to New York in 1973, McCall continued his fire performances and developed his ‘solid light’ film series, conceiving the now-legendary Line Describing a Cone (watch a video of a gallery-goer’s interaction with it), in 1973. These works are simple projections that strikingly emphasise the sculptural qualities of a beam of light. If you want to know more about the light magician, you can read an interview with Anthony by the writers at BOMB Magazine.

Hasisi Park’s photos are at times crude yet tragically endearing. She’s worked with clients like Converse, various fashion lines for Seoul Fashion Week, and has also been featured in a couple fashion/art magazines. I love Hasisi’s info page, as the items listed there have almost nothing to do with usual bullets info pages and CVs, but instead reveals happenings that perhaps impacted her creative work. Though it’s difficult to truly understand someone through looking at a webpage, I feel like I’ve become to feel her work a little bit more.

Tom Rubnitz’s “Pickle Suprise”

If you’d like to spend a lovely Saturday morning in the company of drag queens on the set of any early 90′s public access children’s show, please watch Pickle Surprise by Tom Rubnitz. Tom was a video artist most often associated with the New York East Village drag queen scene of the late 1980s. His video tapes were mainly inspired by pop culture and Las Vegas style shows. A number of his works featured RuPaul and members of the B-52′s. He also made the 1987 documentary Wigstock: The Movie about the annual drag queen festival. He unfortunately passed away in 1992 from an AIDS related disease, but left behind some great cinematic works.

Lichtfront

lichtfront

Coming straight out of Cologne, Germany, design studio Lichtfront are working their magic all over the European electronic music scene. Their super-slick VJ work has been featured in events like Fib Benicássim, Monegros Desert Festival, Nature One, and Mayday. I don’t know anything about these events because I don’t really care for most electronic music, but they seem like a pretty big deal, with huge audiences and famous DJs.
