Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
T.T.I.T.T.T.T.T. or The Time It Takes To Take The Time is a solo exhibition by Chris Duncan in Copenhagen. Duncan is an Oakland-based artist who employs repetition and accumulation as a basis for experiments in visual and sound based media.

Michael Murphy Creates Portrait Out of Brand Logos

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, September 30, 2015
We’ve posted on a few of Michael Murphy’s mobile-like sculptures, and are fascinated with his newest work: a portrait of his daughter made entirely of one hundred laser cut brand logos. The pieces hang and only line up into an accurate portrait from one vantage point. The piece is an exploration of the term “brand identity,” a commissioned work for the creative consultancy Lippincott. If you peer at the piece from the side, the portrait breaks into a hundred pieces.

Photography // Tuesday, September 29, 2015
Taratine, is the first US monograph by acclaimed Japanese photographer Daisuke Yokota.
