Daniel Rozin's Interactive "PomPom Mirror"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
Daniel Rozin’s anthropomorphic "PomPom Mirror" features a synchronized array of 928 spherical faux fur puffs. Organized into a three-dimensional grid of beige and black, the sculpture is controlled by hundreds of motors that build silhouettes of viewers using computer-vision. Along its surface, figures appear as fluffy animal-like representations within the picture plane, which is made permeable by a ‘push-pull’ forward and backward motion of meshed ‘pixels’.

In the Magazine: No Chance to FAILE

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 27, 2015
There are two pivotal moments in FAILE’s career that stand out from the rest. The Times Square mural painted in 2013 was a reminder of the majestic size and overall collage aesthetic style their work can capture at its fullest, and the extent by which street art can be its most pop-centric. And, of course, Les Ballets de Faile installation at the New York City Ballet in 2013, a piece of art that was a literal monument connecting urban imagery with the high performance art that is the ballet. These two extremes perfectly define what FAILE is and has become; a balance between both outdoor and indoor presentations that reimagine the space they inhabit in a way that magnifies their art.

Drawings and Paintings by Robert Hardgrave

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 26, 2015
"Despite all the information we are given, I believe much is unknown to us in the moment, with clarity only achieved upon later reflection," states California-based artist Robert Hardgrave. Hardgrave's "paintings are about the excitement in each evolving moment in life, be it a minute or grand, and savoring it."
