Michael Kontopoulos

 

 

Michael Kontopoulos, a grad student at UCLA Design|Media Arts has created a system of sculptures that are constantly on the brink of collapse. His intention was to capture and sustain the exact moment of impending catastrophe and endlessly repeat it. This documentation gives me the chills, makes me sweat, and I almost scream when each machine comes close to collapse. Good job Michael.

young adult contemporary lifestyle

I love these (kind of bad but) great posters by Young Adult Contemporary Lifestyle, a pan-scandinavian coalition of greatness. I’m a big fan of its designers, linked at the end of this post.

Black Moth Super Rainbow

Not only does Black Moth Super Rainbow make amazing music, they also brought their music videos to a whole new level with interactivity for this Dark Bubbles piece. Like, what? Just move your mouse around from right to left (the webcam activated one doesn’t seem to be working…). The concept is really simple-just a guy jumping up and down on a trampoline, but smart at the same time. I kind of wish there was more variation though.

Degenerate Art Ensemble

Degenerate Art Ensemble is a musically hyper-experimental performance group comprised of a dance company, punk/jazz band, a 45 piece orchestra. I found out about them first through their album Cuckoo Crow. Listening to it makes me feel really alive and dead and kind of confused and disgusted with myself as a fleshly vessel. It also made me want to turn off the lights in my room and just start writhing for no reason (which I have to admit that I did). Check out a sample of their song Checkersplitter on Youtube. They’re awesome!

John Miller

1992: daadgalerie/Bruno Brunnet Fine Arts

 

John Miller’s representations of urban planning and architecture reminds me of childhood games with mud and found objects belonging to my parentals. And though children no more…we’re all still unable to let go of decadence and blissful ignorance…

Craig Ward Typography

craigward1I am by no means a typography or design buff. I have heard at length discussions on Helvetica and whatnot- don’t ask me, I definitely used Comic Sans back in highschool to make my Pug Fans of the World website. Lol. Maybe I wasn’t that bad. Anyways, while perusing one of my favorite websites, FairSpot (an amazing directory for new creative talent) I came across Craig Ward. I really liked some of his takes on typography- like above, a weird silly string metal record looking layout that seems to vibrate. More creative solutions below.

Melanie Bonajo

Melanie Bonajo’s work is stunning. Her work are like bizarre living effigies to household self-bondage via the bric-a-brac of every day life that so literally and metaphorically “tie us down.” On the one hand hilarious in their absurdity, and on the other depressing in their attempt to lay bare self, domesticity and the modern world, Bonajo’s works are impossible, sexual, beautiful and seductive. Her show opens this May 14th, at PPOW gallery.
