What Do Curators Want?

A great series of podcasts by Side Street Projects with various Los Angeles based dealers and museum curators discussing what they look for in art. Some of my favorite interviews include Aimee Chang from the Hammer Museum, and Jeff Poe from Blum&Poe. It’s a great insiders look into not only the LA art scene but into the minds of some of the cities best curators.

In my recent Arcimboldo post, one of our readers mentioned his work reminded him of Sarah Illenberger. Well, I checked out her portfolio and was pleasantly surprised by her silly, girly, playful constructions, designed & created primarily for magazine/book editorial!

YouCube


YouCube Demo Video from Aaron Meyers on Vimeo.

Friend and past-professor Aaron Meyers created this amazing project on his free-time. It allows you to map YouTube videos onto an interactive 3D cube and then save it to a database so you can show your friends. As you spin around a YouCube, the sounds of the different videos fade in and out. Its seriously amazing. My video is the last on the list but the first one to be created during the trial run… its called ‘Hamster Wheel’, so look for it! Aaron’s also worked on the awesome Radiohead video House of Cards. You can see more of his projects after the jump.

Who knows, if I had begun my educational journey here instead, maybe I would have turned out to be a whole different human being… I think this kindergarten is the equivalent of the High School #9 for the Visual and Performing Arts by architect firm Coop Himmelblau because of the complete wholeness the design + architecture. Just looking at it makes me want to learn (!!)
