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.

Shannon Rankin

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)
