Christopher Jobson

Xaver Xylophon is a 24 year-old visual communications graduate from KHB Berlin Weißensee. He likes melancholy robots, the smell of new tennis balls, and creating some pretty fantastic stop-motion shorts. I also really enjoyed the organic Zyklus I.

Chinese photographer Yang Yongliang is mostly known for his photographic recreation of Chinese Shanshui paintings, however it was this installation entitled Cigarette Ash Landscape that really got my attention. (via the very fine 500 Photographers)

Between the Lines

January 15, 2011

Christopher Jobson

“Between the Lines” is a 2007 piece by artist Ariana Boussard-Reifel. The book is a white supremacist screed that Ariana eviscerated, word by word. I contacted Ariana by email and this is what she said about the piece:

Between the Lines was completed in 2007. It is a white supremacist text that I cut every word out of. Essentially imposing the doctrine of color-based segregation on the book itself, removing all the black from the white, and rendering it meaningless as a consequence. It was part of a series that was a response to the rise in power of The World Church of the Creator, a vitriolic white supremacist group. Also in the body of work is Like Mother Like Daughter, a performance piece and now a group of photographs that I made with my mother, and Hate Begins at Home, an installation piece in which LMLD is projected.
