Video: FAILE "Wishing On You" in Times Square

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
You know what made our installation that we did in Times Square last week so cool? We had friends like FAILE who kicked off the momentum a month earlier with their own interactive installation, "Wishing On You," a "spinning the 7ft tall, hand carved wooden wheel kinetically powers the neon lights in the ceiling of the sculpture. The entire structure is made of wood and carved wood a nice organic contrast in the midst of Times Square."

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
We are really excited about this one: Ryan Travis Christian, David Jien, Toshio Saeki, and Adrienne Kammerer are all in a fantastic looking show, "Happily Until Their Deaths," opening at Narwhal Projects in Toronto on October 20. The show is based around what curator Kristin Weckworth notes as “Happily Until Their Deaths” being once a popular concluding pronouncement to fairy tales in the 1600s. This eventually softened into the more familiar “happily ever after”.

Book of Photographs Taken by Public Housing Residents in NY

Photography // Thursday, October 22, 2015
Project Lives is a book, grown from an attempt to convey more accurate truths about what lives are like inside New York’s housing projects. Residents living in the projects were given cameras to document their worlds, and the finished product is a book of their images, alongside narratives from their lives and writings on the larger context of the threat of defunding housing projects. 

Shae DeTar's Otherworldly Nudes

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 22, 2015
We’ve written before about Shae DeTar’s stunning nudes, but want to remind readers of their beauty. It’s difficult to do them justice with description, but picture this: a woman’s face dissolves into swirls of paint or a large crystal replaces her head. DeTar’s models’ skins leak neon or the landscapes on which they splay appear hypersaturated.
