Light Painting by Twin Cities Brightest

December 1, 2010

Christopher Jobson

These are just five images of thousands created by Twin Cities Brightest, whose web site leads me to believe it’s the work of a single individual with maybe some help from friends. Using light swords, fireworks, custom light suits, and gadgets I’ve simply never heard of, TCB is making stuff so far beyond anything I’ve ever seen before. Do yourself a favor and get lost for a bit in their Flickr sets. Tutorials included.

Side note: I found this via Michael over at Yewknee a blog that’s quickly become a favorite in a blogroll exceeding about 150 sites I read each day. Check it out.

Andy Diaz Hope, Painting with Pills

November 26, 2010

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered the work of San Francisco artist Andy Diaz Hope who transfers photographs onto elaborate grids of gel caplets.

Andy Diaz Hope deconstructs his own digital photographs and painstakingly reassembles the original image in a mosaic of gelatin pill capsules, each containing small portions from several original prints. As a continuation of his Morning After Portraits series, Diaz Hope has turned his lens on the hidden landscapes of drug culture—from high school hideaways to psychiatric institutions.

Some of his more recent work involving tapestries and mirrors (the pill work above spans 2004-2007) is on display now at Catharine Clark Gallery through January 1st. (via beautiful/decay)

A 2009 series, Sentient Orbs, from Glasgow-based littlewhitehead, who wants to “beat you up visually” which is probably my new favorite phrase.
