Big Beds of Colorful Snakes

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 02, 2014
I'm going to be straight up here and go first person: I don't like snakes. They freak me out. I totally understand how beautiful they are in their prehistoric skin, and they way they move is elegant and interesting (if you like death staring you in the face and slithering quicker than you can run). Having said that... these photos have led me to a new respect for the artistic nature of a snakes skin. That might be it, though.

This Friday, October 3rd, Boxes of Death 5 will open at its first destination, Antler Gallery in Portland, Oregon. Boxes of Death is an art exhibition where 50 artists are each given their own coffin to do with what they want.

Art in the Age presents The Distance Between Two Points, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Scott Albrecht. The exhibition will run from October 3—31, 2014 with an opening reception on Friday, October 3rd, from 6—8pm. In The Distance Between Two Points, Albrecht explores themes of time, perception and interconnectivity. The artist took a holistic approach toward this exhibition, inspired by the concept that consciousness is informed by multiple factors, shaped by personal histories and past experiences. His goal was to create a body of work with layers of meaning, each piece functions individually yet many convey a larger message collectively, in relation to the others.

HERBERT BAGLIONE: "1000 Shadows" in Niort, France

Street Art // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Earlier this past Summer, we told you about Herbert Baglione's 1000 Shadows Project with Winterlong Galerie in Niort, France. Winterlong organized severals installations in historic French locations in la Rochelle, Niort (where the gallery is located) and in small French villages, and Herbert's stunning site-specific installations and works are some of favorites we have ever seen from the Brazilian artist. Here is a look at some of the works he completed...

Music Video: Thom Yorke "A Brain In A Bottle"

Music // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
We don't think Thom Yorke likes doing pre-press to announce his albums. Sure, he likes the BitTorrent route he went with his new LP, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes," and he likes the idea of getting rid of middle men and giving artists the chance to make their own money from their art and craft, but I'm convinced he wants to avoid talking to music journalists every few years to talk shop. So we get an unexpected album, and we get a glitchy video of Thom with boxing gloves for the opening track "A Brain In A Bottle," and all is good.
