LED Ice Slides in China

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 11, 2013
This is epic. As part of the Harbin Ice Festival in China, visitors can partake in the time-honored pastime of LED lit ice sliding. There are a couple things at play here that should be noted. One, you are sliding from an ice castle, and two, you have to slide at night for the full light effect. China, here we come.

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 10, 2013
Over the past year, Juxtapoz and Converse have teamed on a unique project, Wall to Wall, where we invite an artist in a city in North America to create a semi-permanent mural based around the artist's interpretation of the iconic Converse star. Today, we look back on the mural created in Austin, Texas by artist Josh Row.

Jonathan Gabb's 3D Paintings @ Wilson Williams, London

Juxtapoz // Thursday, January 10, 2013
"With a painting, people expect paint on a canvas or pigment in liquid on a flat surface, I’m trying to do something different. I want to stretch the material value of paint in a 3D form to transform it into something else - the paint is freed from a fixed surface and can be viewed as an object."
