Thrift Store Sculptures by Sayaka Ganz

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 07, 2014
Artist Sayaka Ganz creates her sculptures using thrift store plastics. Both her Japanese roots and the Japanese Shinto belief that ‘all objects and organisms have spirits’ heavily influence Sayaka. With those as her starting point, she feels that art arise 'from the passion for fitting odd shapes together and a sympathy toward discarded objects.'

Robert Bowen "Blasphemous Nature" @ Upper Playground, Portland

Juxtapoz // Thursday, August 07, 2014
With this new body of work I am continuing to focus on my fascination with animal/machinery hybrids. There are so many unanswered questions I have about them. Is this a not so distant future reality? A terrible road we should never go down? How do I make the Killer Whale a more efficient killer? Can the marlin and shark be even faster hunters, more dangerous...

Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands 2014: Woods "New Light"

Music // Wednesday, August 06, 2014
As you know, we are once again heading to the Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in SF this weekend (August 8-10, 2014), and while most people are getting ready for Kanye, Arctic Monkeys, Tom Petty, Lykke Li, Death Cab, or The Flaming Lips, there are a few bands of note playing in the afternoons that we are the most excited about. Woods would be one of those bands. They have always kept the DIY aesthetic true to their hearts, and we love their new video for "New Light" animated by John Andrews. Go see them on Sunday, August 10 at 1:10pm on the Sutro Stage. And get their new LP, With Light And With Love.
