Katie Armstrong: once more, once more

January 19, 2011

Christopher Jobson

NYC artist and animator Katie Armstrong just made and premiered this animated cover of Britney Spears at the Leipzig International Art Residency Program in Germany. Quick verification with the wife suggests this might be “the most amazing thing ever”. I have to say it definitely gave me the chills.

Zimoun Updates

January 19, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Everyone’s favorite Swiss sound sculptor Zimoun has updated his compilation video to include work from 2010. Sit back, relax and enjoy the frenetic whizzing and whirring of more modified dc-motors than you can shake a polysiloxane hose at. Previously (though admittedly he updated the same video).

New prints by NYC designer Tommy Cinquegrano. The top print Warehouse #1 is available now and looks like it will sell out by days end. The other two are available soon, though he has many more great prints in his shop. (via omg posters)

 

 



Art Science

Julia Feld

Christopher Jobson

There’s been no shortage of book and paper sculpture in this space lately but I’m making no apologies. St. Louis-based scientist and artist (scientist! and artist!) Julia Feld makes delicately layered sculptures and topographies from dissected science and medical textbooks. Many are available through her shop, Holy Stokes.

Waaaaaaaaaves!

Christopher Jobson

So over the last two weeks I sorted through a couple thousand images of waves. All photos are linked to their sources. I think this is my subconscious telling me I need a vacation.

Update: Just added one more to the end. Cheers.

Train Type

January 18, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Norwegian designer Ludvig Bruneau Rossow has built an entire typeface out of a train set. See the rest of it here. For me this simultaneously evokes childhood nostalgia of spending time with my dad building model train sets and setting type for a Vandercook printing press. True story. (via @presentcorrect)
