Portals Project Opens Gateway from SF to Tehran

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
San Francisco will soon be home to the latest gateway in the Portals Project, a public art project curated by Shared_Studios that uses design and technology to connect strangers and artists across the globe. So what exactly is a portal? A portal is a retrofitted shipping container painted gold and immersed with audio and visual technology inside. When you enter the portal, you come face to face with a stranger in a similar portal across the globe for a one-on-one conversation. In San Francisco, the Portal is a gateway to Tehran, Herat, El Progreso, or Mexico City (depending on the time of day).

Sieben on Life: The Art of Not Making Art

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 16, 2015
I've both heard and read advice relating to being an artist, stating that in order to be truly successful at your craft, you need to be in your studio every day, clocking hours—whether you feel motivated to work or not. I understand the underlying message: only time and perseverance will enable you to make great strides and push your work forward. And while I agree that it's obviously extremely important to dedicate sufficient time to your art, it's also important to feel OK about not making it.

Hiss imagery pulls from traditional Native American visual vocabulary but places it in a contemporary context.

Missing Link by Curiot

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 15, 2015
Curiot’s creatures have swam deep into Pange Seed´s  oceans to find the “Missing Link”, createdfor Tales from the Deep: Stories, Myths, and Monsters print suite. This limited edition giclee print ( a series of 75 signed and number) remind us of the Caribbean depths  replete with coral life. The shinning eye stone statue resting at the bottom of this reef has a clear reminiscence to ancient Mexican deities; the alien like, galaxy covered divers, seem to be cautiously crossing a fluid wall from another dimension.
