Music Video: SMALL FEET "Rivers" by Oskar Wrangö

Music // Monday, July 15, 2013
We don't know much about the band Small Feet, but first thing is first, their track "Rivers" is an eerie folk song in the vein of early Bonnie Prince Billy or Microphones. And the video, directed by Oskar Wrangö, is in the vein of a guy reverse running whilst on fire in the woods. It all works together quite well. Don't try this at home... or in your local wooded forest.

Carlo Van de Roer's Photographs Capture the Subject's Aura

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 15, 2013
Each of these portraits by photographer Carlo Van de Roer uses an AuraCam 6000 to capture not only the subject but the color of their aura. According to the Auracam 6000 website (possibly circa 1995), the Auracam uses hand sensors connected via cables to the camera. Polaroid instant film is put into the camera and when the 'customer' puts their hands onto the sensor, the camera gathers 'biofeedback parameter data.' Basically, the thing translates the electromagnetic field of a person and projects it as a colorful field around the film.

Abstract Paintings by Jennifer Coates

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 15, 2013
We are enjoying the abstract paintings of New York-based artist Jennifer Coates this morning. Coates' metaphysical paintings utilize the conventions of landscape as a vehicle for hallucinatory visions and psychological spaces.
