New-York based artist Christian Marclay is a visual artist and composer who explores the intersection of sound recording and photography.
As a performer and sound artist Christian Marclay has been experimenting, composing and performing with phonograph records and turntables since 1979 to create his unique “theater of found sound.” A dadaist DJ and filmmaker, his installations and video/film collages display provocative musical and visual landscapes. He was born in California, raised in Switzerland and now works between New York and London.
I’m enjoying these slick minimalist public transportation maps available at TRNSPRTNATION. Each train route is comprised of a long, repeated list of the station stops from that line. Only $25. They have maps available for Chicago, New York, London, San Francisco, Boston, and Washington D.C. (thnx, ryan!)
I can’t get enough of Murilo Melo’s work apparently. These are two additional posters he designed for the World Wildlife Fund that show a dead tree and barren reef with their component wildlife removed and displayed alongside them asking you to imagine these ecosystems without plants and animals. Beautiful.
Art director Murilo Melo created this killer poster series for Companhia Athletica Gyms in Brazil by dismantling sloth-inducing televisions, video games, and computers and using their thousands of parts to create exercising humans, urging you to “switch your routine for ours”. The project took four months to execute and is well documented on this pretty awesome website where you can see production shots, download high-res images (recommended for detailed viewing), and watch a video. From concept to execution this is one of the more clever print advertising campaigns I’ve seen in a while.
I just reached for my wallet so quickly I tore a hole in my pants. The folks over at Degree have just printed this fantastic offset lithograph print entitled Tree of Life. The rings of the tree are created with tiny animals.
This unique poster aims to highlight the responsibility we have in letting animal species thrive in their natural environment—we have a choice whether or not to preserve nature and let it grow. Specially designed to assert this crucial message, it forms the basis of social attitudes towards Mother Nature for the many people out there who want to make a difference in our world.
