Photography // Thursday, October 02, 2014
Synchrodogs (Roman Noven and Tania Shcheglova) latest series, the Reverie sleep project, is based on Synchrodogs’ dreams, those they have seen in drowsiness.

Scott Albrecht "The Distance Between Two Points" @ Art in the Age, Philadelphia

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Art in the Age presents The Distance Between Two Points, a solo exhibition of new works by Brooklyn-based artist Scott Albrecht. The exhibition will run from October 3—31, 2014 with an opening reception on Friday, October 3rd, from 6—8pm. In The Distance Between Two Points, Albrecht explores themes of time, perception and interconnectivity. The artist took a holistic approach toward this exhibition, inspired by the concept that consciousness is informed by multiple factors, shaped by personal histories and past experiences. His goal was to create a body of work with layers of meaning, each piece functions individually yet many convey a larger message collectively, in relation to the others.

HERBERT BAGLIONE: "1000 Shadows" in Niort, France

Street Art // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Earlier this past Summer, we told you about Herbert Baglione's 1000 Shadows Project with Winterlong Galerie in Niort, France. Winterlong organized severals installations in historic French locations in la Rochelle, Niort (where the gallery is located) and in small French villages, and Herbert's stunning site-specific installations and works are some of favorites we have ever seen from the Brazilian artist. Here is a look at some of the works he completed...

Music Video: Thom Yorke "A Brain In A Bottle"

Music // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
We don't think Thom Yorke likes doing pre-press to announce his albums. Sure, he likes the BitTorrent route he went with his new LP, "Tomorrow's Modern Boxes," and he likes the idea of getting rid of middle men and giving artists the chance to make their own money from their art and craft, but I'm convinced he wants to avoid talking to music journalists every few years to talk shop. So we get an unexpected album, and we get a glitchy video of Thom with boxing gloves for the opening track "A Brain In A Bottle," and all is good.

Eddie Martinez "Perfect Stranger" Print

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 01, 2014
Eddie Martinez uses oil paint, enamel, and spray paint to create vibrantly textured, abstract surfaces charged with drips, scratches, and brushstrokes. Offsetting the primary red and yellow with a denim hued blue, Martinez aggressively tacks on color to create a contrasting yet sophisticated palette, deeply rooted in color theory and the process of drawing. Perfect Stranger, while not obviously figurative, embodies the gesture of large-scale Abstract Expressionism...
