Video: KAWS @ Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
A few months ago, KAWS unveiled a beautiful public Companion (Passing Through) sculpture at Philadelphia's 30th Street Station, all leading up to the Brooklyn artist's exhibition at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts that opens tomorrow, October 11. A few images of the PAFA's space have been released, showing a great juxtaposition (hey-o!) of the clean, bright lines of KAWS' canvases with the antique, classic works and structure of the PAFA building. Living Proof has a great preview video ...

Banksy "Better Out Than In" Day 5—11 Recap

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
We are trying to find ways not to post a Banksy story each day during the month of Better Out Than In, and its getting hard. Today is a recap of all that has gone on in the streets of NYC since Saturday, with the special "Reble Rocket Attack" video of Sunday included here. Where to start... lonely hearts in Brooklyn, wandering gardens, signature rats, a political statement on the US military, cheap philosophy, and today, October 11, a meatpacking truck filled with stuffed animals called "The Sirens of the Lambs" that will tour NYC's meatpacking district and then citywide for the next two weeks.

Leica M Camera for (RED) by Apple's Jonathan Ive x Marc Newson

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
Like 3 heavyweights in one project. Apple's Senior VP of Design Jonathan Ive and legendary designer Marc Newson teamed up to create this special Leica digital viewfinder camera for (RED), joining more than "40 other rare and diverse items in the (RED)Sotheby’s auction on November 23rd 2013." (via DesignBoom). From the looks of it, the camera is quite a stunning digital camera, and we wonder how much it will be auctioned for? The cause is great, with all proceeds going to raise money for the global fund to fight aids, tuberculosis and malaria.

The Work of Igor & Marina

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
We are loving the work of Russian-born husband-and-wife team Igor Kozlovsky and Marina Sharapova. 'Characterized by a remarkable fusion of seemingly discordant elements: past present, figurative and abstract, traditional and avant-garde,' their work together features Renaissance-era figures floating over backgrounds of cryptic text and pattern 'while areas of intricate, realistic detail coexist with expanses of layered color.'

Sand Sculptures by Guy-Olivier Deveau

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
Every year in San Francisco local architects and designers work with students from schools across the city in an annual sand castle competition. This year due to the government shut-down the 30th annual competition has been suspended indefinitely! So this morning, because sand castles are on our mind, we take a look at the sand sculptures of Guy-Olivier Deveau.

The Brilliant Imagination of Tomas Saraceno

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
Argentine artist Tomas Saraceno has never failed to impress us over the years with his imaginative and well-executed public and interactive art installations. He doesn't just dream of floating cities and buildings, he actually attempts to create them. The man is not short of ideas, and this experimental solar dome from 2012 titled "Poetic Cosmos of the Breath" is still one of our favorites.

Shrink-wrapped People by 'Photographer Hal'

Juxtapoz // Friday, October 11, 2013
In Tokyo-based photographer Hal's "Flesh Love" series, couples are blanketed in a plastic sheet to create a vacuum-sealed pack of love. As the result of probably seeing too many Law & Order episodes where victims are either discovered in plastic bags or murdered using one, these photographs are making us feel a bit uncomfortable...or maybe we just have a deep fear of suffocating.
