EAGER by Allison Schulnik

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 23, 2015
We are going to take the advice of the filmmakers: "Turn up the volume, turn off the lights and make full screen. Allow a few minutes for film to load/buffer first before viewing so it won't play choppy. "Eager" is just a brilliant clay-mation and stop-motion creation from LA-based fine artist Allison Schulnik made in conjunction with a museum show at Wadsworth Atheneum Museum of Art in Hartford, CT as well as a solo show at ZieherSmith NYC in early 2014.

Soldier's Undeveloped World War II Film Discovered

Photography // Friday, January 23, 2015
The Rescued Film Project, an online archive gallery of images that processes undeveloped film from all eras, recently came across one of their biggest finds yet: 31 rolls of film shot by an unkonw WWII soldier. With the capability to process film that has been degraded by heat, moisture, and age, the project has the potential to bring back parts of history thought to be forgotten.

The Beautifully Eerie Work of Stephan Balleux

Juxtapoz // Friday, January 23, 2015
Stephan Balleux is a Belgian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His work deals with the position of painting in our digital age. The various techniques (drawing, painting, sculpture, video and special effects) constitute as many fields of investigation. From these experiences emerges an image, in constant change, erasing any temporality. Like a virus, the pictorial texture propagates itself and its digitalization becomes an eminently contemporary process.

Expressing Abstract Mathematical Concepts Through Art

Illustration // Friday, January 23, 2015
Anatoly Timofeevich Fomenko is a distinguished Russian mathematician, professor, well-known topologist, supporter of radically revising historical chronology, and it turns out, very talented at expressing abstract mathematical concepts through artwork. "Since the mid-1970s, Fomenko has created more than 280 graphic works. Fomenko description of his technique probably sounds unlike anything that most of us have ever previously heard or learned about drawing. He never starts with rough sketches, copies, or outlines. Rather the final drawing appears all at once as a clean copy. "Each mark is final, and my hand does not return to it again". He compares his technique to the process of developing a photo "like using a rag to wipe a thick layer of dust from a picture that already exists".

Photographing Miners With Mining Materials

Photography // Thursday, January 22, 2015
Taking artistic immersion to another level, photographer Sean Hawkey photographed Peruvian mine workers with glass plate negatives using the same silver nitrate used in the mining process. The wet collodion method of photographing that Hawkey used required incredibly heavy equipment including a large format camera and over 30 pounds of glass used for plates.
