The Work of Nadine Boughton

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Using vintage magazins and materials, Nadine Boughton will scan and compose digital collages. "My intention is to blend the nostalgia for the past with the darkness beneath 'the pleasures of modern living.' I am interested in the portrayal of women and domestic culture; the illusion of security; food as an objecdt of desire and comfort; and the grip of materiality."

Hammer Projects: Maya Hayuk

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
One of our favorite artists, Maya Hayuk, will be creating a new site-specific mural on the Lobby Wall of the Hammer Museum in Los Angeles for her first one-person US museum exhibition. "Hayuk weaves visual information from her immediate surroundings into her elaborate abstractions, creating an engaging mix of referents from popular culture and advanced painting practices while connecting to the ongoing pursuit of psychedelic experience in visual form." Maya was featured in our special December 2009 Barnstormers issue.

The Dutch Government's Creative Google Earth Censoring

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
The Dutch government has a uniquely artistic (whether intentional or not) way of censoring those areas of Google Maps they don't want you to see. British photographer Mishka Henner noticed these creative blurring of Google Maps while browsing satellite images and has compiled them into a book questioning "the traditional relationship between art and censorship, a relationship which, in our Internet age fraught with new anxieties over privacy and surveillance, seems to grow more complicated..."

Esther Lobo's Food Rorschach Tests

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
Using various foods and a disposable plate, Spanish photographer Esther Lobo has created a simple and interesting series of images resembling the Rorschach Test type. Perhaps there is also a deeper symbolism between memory, food and psychological conditions?

Watch: The Mystery of Flying Kicks

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 14, 2013
We've all, at one point or another, wondered what the meaning of sneakers hanging from telephones lines is. It's something we have debated with friends and heard plenty of different stories about. Apparently, the phenomenon exists all over the world and everyone has his or her own theory. The documentary 'The Mystery of Flying Kicks', directed by Matthew Bate, explores the urban myths and personal stories behind the hanging sneakers.

Porn Sex vs. Real Sex Explained With Food

Erotica // Tuesday, August 13, 2013
This amazing informational video illustrates the differences between porn sex and real sex by using food as an analogy. Using zucchinis, cilantro, nutella, hot dogs, various sliced fruits and a lightly-bondaged chicken, this video makes use of everyday accoutrements to demonstrate the difference between pornland and our own bedrooms. The result is a hilariously intelligent bit of sex-education, we'd recommend it to (almost) all age groups, especially if your own midnight romps aren't living up to the glamour of the waxed-up video world. Also, just listen to her say "hot load" a few times.

Florian Meacci's Biro Pen Illustrations

Illustration // Tuesday, August 13, 2013
Florian Meacci studied graphic design in France, then relocated to London to become and illustrator. His main interests lie in drawing with a biro pen and reading comic books. These painstakingly detailed illustrations are heavily and directly influenced by fashion and editorial imagery, their strong, body-based compositions creating striking visions in ink.
