Shannon Rankin

January 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Born in California artist Shannon Rankin lives and works in Maine.

In my work I create installations, collages and drawings that use the language of maps to explore the connections among geological and biological processes, patterns in nature, geometry and anatomy. Using a variety of distinct styles I intricately cut, score, wrinkle, layer, fold, paint and pin maps to produce revised versions that often become more like the terrains they represent.

Josh Sommers: Stereographic Projections

January 13, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Generally when I encounter stereographic photos they all tend to look the same to me, or it seems like an overused effect applied at will to any image simply to make it “cool”. I genuinely feel that way about tilt-shift photos lately. However when I saw Josh Sommer‘s work today I knew immediately this was something different, something better. There’s a crispness and intensity to these photos, in that they appear to have been planned from the beginning instead of having an effect slapped on afterward. Much, much more over on his Flickr, including some stereographic animations and equirectangular panoramas. (via design boom)

Every month Wired asks contributors to illustrate the edition number of their magazine. Melbourne-based design studio A Friend of Mine took the unconventional approach of working with artist Carla Grbac to weave some sexy custom type. (via design work life)

Vibrant Rorschach prints from Portland designer Matt W. Moore. I first saw these a couple days ago and the images have permanently seared themselves into my brain.
