A new Kaz Oshiro exhibit, “Diffuse Reflection,” just opened at Galerie Frank Elbaz in Paris, and the pictures do not disappoint. We have been impressed with the LA artist’s work for years now, watching with awe as he turns wood, canvas and paint into three dimensional trompe-l’oeil sculptures of everyday objects...

The Great East Japan Earthquake struck on March 11, 2011, and an enormous wave of water swept through towns in the Tōhoku (Northeast) region, destroying virtually everything in its path and irrevocably damaging the Fukushima nuclear power plant. This triple disaster was of such epic proportions that it became a defining moment for Japan. A number of photographers felt compelled to record not only the events’ physical effects on the land, but also to interpret the overarching significance of the tragedy through art.

Light Kinetics is the last interactive installation of Espadaysantacruz a, Madrid based, creative studio. In this piece, light is controlled by a physics simulator creating a astonishing effect. A piezo electric sensor situated in the first bulb captures the force of the tap, generating a light particle that moves along the loop. All the shades of the energy are reflected in the trajectory of the light. The system is powered by Unity 3D that simulates de forces that apply to the virtual corpuscle.
