Wooden Shark Coffins by Handsome Wong

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
A clever social awareness campaign from Handsome Wong of Y&R Shanghai: A shark-sized coffin with protruding fins! The campaign is meant to emphasize the mass killings of sharks. Over 73 million of the species are killed every year for soup. Their fins (which only make up 2% of their total weight) are brutally sliced off and the rest is tossed back into the ocean. 

"Dignity," Photographs by Bence Bakonyi

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
This morning we take a look at Hungarian photographer Bence Bakonyi's "Dignity" series, a reflection on the artists' view of himself. "I cannot escape from the fact that I struggle with myself. It has always been a difficult question for me: do I know him? Who is he anyway" It's so alluring, sometimes as if the will of the body would want to swallow me, leaving my thoughts behind...

Sculptural Ceramics by Nuala O'Donovan

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Combining regular pattern with the characteristics of irregular patterns and forms from nature, Irish artist Nuala O'Donovan carefully constructs her work over a period of weeks or months and the finished forms are "a result of an intuitive response to the direction that the pattern takes as well as the irregularity in the handmade elements of the pattern."

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Earlier this year we saw an unlikely but perfect match for an album cover: Tyler, the Creator teamed up with Mark Ryden. Directed by Wolf Haley, Tyler's latest video sees that album cover turned into a set in addition to several other highly entertaining scenes from the always imaginative and bizarre mind of the Odd Future frontman.

Update: Quilled Paper Sculptures by Lisa Nilsson

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, October 09, 2013
Lisa Nilsson constructed these incredible anatomical sculptures using a technique called quilling or paper filigree. By rolling and shaping narrow strips of Japanese mulberry paper and the gilded edges of old books, the artist has created "densely squished and lovely internal landscape of the human body in cross section." Update: She will be opening a new exhibition at Pavel Zoubok Gallery in NYC this Thursday, October 10th, 2013.

Trailer: Chris Cunningham for Warpaint "Love Is to Die" Documentary

Music // Tuesday, October 08, 2013
Chris Cunningham is a visionary music video director, creating visuals that can potentially outlive the music its made for (although the music of Aphex Twin and others is quite good and longlasting in the mind). Warpaint is a band of 4 women from Los Angeles that make melodic art rock music. Cunningham followed Warpaint for two years and the result is Love Is To Die, a documentary of sorts that we have a teaser for today...
