I wish I knew this artist’s real name so I didn’t have to refer to her  by her Flickr moniker…but this will have to do for now. The paintings are a little bit too Asian-American (is that a genre?) for my taste…and I feel like maybe I can make this claim because I am a fair representation, but the colors are definitely eye-catching. And I like how auto-biographical the paintings feel.

Thanks to everyone that came out to the Beautiful/Decay & Insight 51 sample sale on Friday and Saturday. Both days were filled with eager shoppers who were anxious to get  a good deal and hang with us for two sun drenched california days. Here are some highlights …

Everyone loves a good sample sale where one can find those rare one off samples that you can’t get in stores. Apparently Cousin It got wind of it and came through to find the perfect surfin safari outfit.

Took me a while to figure out what was going on in this image (well actually, they’re almost all videos) but it’s an awesome visual trick. The rest of Michael Guidetti’s work is along the same vein. Kind of 2D into 3D…so 2.5D?

Giovanni Bucci

 

This showreel is made of a selection of projects done by freelance designer Giovanni Bucci over the last few years. The audio track is a blended/synthesis of flavours from the latest productions of Marco Morano, which include dirty electro, over compressed grooves, classical atmospheres and re-built sound effects.

 

After experimenting and researching how audio can influence and inspire video and viceversa, they have worked out a personal formula. Instead of working audio and video separately, as it is common practice in the media industry, every draft of the video editing was followed by an audio adjustment  in a way that both authors could get influenced by the work of the other, until they felt that an harmonious final edit was achieved.

Am I crazy or are  Steve Kim’s ghostly figurative paintings look like a mix between Egon Schiele, and Richard Diebenkorn’s  paintings?

Mark McKeague – Twitter Radio


TwitterRadio from Mark McKeague on Vimeo.
 

I wish i had the knowledge to create something as beautiful as this. The project Mark created allows him to tune in to twitter posts in real-time using the analog radio. You can use the knob to scan “stations”, which are different twitter posts. Amazing, amazing, amazing.  He used an arduino board and lot of grey matter at SARc.

 

Also, here is an interesting programmatic response to Mark’s project which integrates twitter and youtube. TwiTV click on the top right black square to flip channels. Graphics are kinda shabby though.

I usually don’t post this many images, but I am having a difficult time deciding which illustrations I like the best. Triangular softcore and elvis awaits you, and an illustration style that should make you smile, at least a little.
