Kinetic Sculpture

I really like this video. It talks about design/engineering/art working as one. It reminded me of this video class combining the ideas with the tech to make them happen. I also like the idea of there being no lines between art and other aspects of life: art and engineering, art and food, art and clothing, art and life.

Light Photography


This is something I was trying to figure out how to do myself. But it seems that someone beat me to it. This is the work of Alan Jaras and the photography is done only with light reflected through different objects

Edit: forgot to add the link.... Here

Street Installations - Mark Jenkins


A series of public installation pieces. Some are more obvious than others, but they all are meant to attract attention

Shadow Sculpture


The sculpture work of the duo Tim Noble and Sue Webster. I don't want to say too much, you just have to see it.

New Marc Quinn Statue



Marc Quinn is a talented British artist from the Saatchi clique. He is most famous for sculpting (from a mold) his own head once with his own frozen blood, and also with his feces. Now he's unveiled a pure solid gold, 110 pound statue of Kate Moss, the one time fashion icon. The value of the materials used to make the piece, before we even consider the value of it as an artwork by a famous artist, is 3 million! Check it out HERE. Seems bound to be a sensation. Very Warholian too.





BLOOD HEAD



SHITHEAD

Some powerful images

I have been toying around with several ideas for our first project, one of which is beauty and all the things women do to achieve society's idea of beauty. I found several clips on you-tube of women waxing (quite painfully), tanning, excercising, applying makeup, etc. I also wanted to show the darker side of our society's obsession with appearance which is how I came upon this video. It's pretty cheesy, and it's more of a slideshow than a college but a lot of the images (especially toward the end) are really affective. I'm not sure if I am going to stick with this idea or not but it is still a pretty dramatic video to watch.

Stumbleupon

Hey everyone,

Although it seems impossible, sometimes the Internet gets boring. About a year ago I found this browser add on called stumbleupon. It's pretty cool, you just install it on your browser and then it asks you to check boxes of subjects you like. It gathers them all up and calculates the websites it thinks you'd be interested in seeing. It might even help you find some cool stuff to post on here! Let me know what you find.

Voice-overs.

I found this guy a few weeks ago. His name is Alex Buxton, a British comedian, and his mainstay appears to be narrating over existing tv content.
