Photographs by John Clang

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Singaporean photographer and visual artist John Clang's series Time, explores the concepts of movement in space and time. The series records a location, showing the passing of time by combining pieces of other photographs taken in the same location in a different moment for the final product. "There is a sense of intimate intricacy of how time moves, and how people, albeit in a different time, are actually closer to one another and traveling in the same shared space."

Watch: Willie Witte's Analog Visual Effects

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, April 30, 2013
We really enjoyed this short expiremental video by documentary filmmaker Willie Witte. When not working or planning documentaries, Willie experiments with analog visual techniques, some of which he applied in this video. None of the visuals in this video were computer generated!

Missouri-based artist Kendra Werst's installation used colorful threads woven through a clear Plexiglas panel and between two walls for her 9-foot tall site-specific installation entitled Translation.

Fiction Alters Form @ .T.F.R. Gallery, Leucadia

Juxtapoz // Monday, April 29, 2013
  .T.F.R. Gallery presents Fiction Alters Form, featuring artists Joshua Miller, Matt Rich, and Joe Yorty. In selecting Matt Rich and Joe Yorty for the exhibition, Joshua Miller (who we asked to choose work to be put in relation to his) wanted to consider the ways in which symmetries of form gave way to asymmetries of intention. Formally, all three artists conflate expectations of two and three dimensional space, painting and sculpture, surface and volume. However, beyond those formal congruencies, the material choices, vantage point, and intention of each artist diverges.
