Swarms

December 14, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Photographer Thomas Jackson (previously) has been working on a new series of images based on the idea of swarms, shooting large hovering masses of objects in locations around New York. He says the idea is still a work in progress and that some of these photos should just be considered “sketches,” but I think they’re really fantastic already. See them a bit larger on his site.

Hengki Koentjoro

One would assume at first glance that there is no other place Hengki Koentjoro could be taking photographs than a fantastical, alternate dimension, perhaps retrieving the photos nightly from his dreams. As it turns out these recent photos were taken in various places around Indonesia, and you can follow Koentjoro’s journies on Flickr.

Surreal Collages by Philipp Igumnov

October 5, 2011

Christopher Jobson

Just discovered these fun collages and illustrations by Moscow-based artist Philipp Igumnov. He strikes an intriguing balance in his work with many pieces being laugh-out-loud ridiculous while others are filled with a sort of sad, dreamlike melancholy. Whatever he’s doing, it works, and I found myself sad when I reached the end of his gallery so quickly.

The High Wheel

August 27, 2011

Christopher Jobson

High Wheel is a fun video project by Maider Lopez where he effectively removes the main structure of a ferris wheel by using chroma key (the same concept as using green screen, except in this instance kind of in reverse). Made for the OK Center for Contemporary Art. (via lustik, i heart my art)
