Cassette Tape Cyanotypes

September 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

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.

These striking blue cyanotypes are made by resting cassette tapes on photosensitive paper, like a photogram, and making multiple exposures with a light source. (via ex-chamber)

A brilliant time capsule of life in New York in the early 20th century captured by photographer Eugene de Salignac who shot this group of dapper looking bridge painters dangling on the Brooklyn Bridge’s suspension cables. Found on the Flickr stream for the Museum of Photographic Arts. (via sabino)

German artist Felix von der Weppen just posted these striking images from a work in progress. Can’t wait to see where he goes with this. If you haven’t seen his birth sculpture that involves an exploding ostrich egg lit from the inside, you should definitely check it out. (via behance)
