Niagara Falls... as seen through the lens of a DJI Phantom quadcopter

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
When this video was sent to us the morning, with the simple YouTube description of "The Niagara Falls filmed from a DJI Phantom with a GoPro Hero 3," we knew it was going to be something of interest, or at least a good way to waste about 3.5 minutes. Then we cranked up the 1080 resolution, turned up the volume, and had a surreal few moments that made us have to pee and want to go to Niagara Falls.

Marbelous Wood by Snedker Studios

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
We think our room would look pretty amazing if it was floored in some of this Marbelous Wood. It reminds us of a Kelsey Brooks painting. Part of a series of wood adorned with a marbling pattern technique known from old book covers. "The transparent marbling pattern merges with the wood, entering into a dialogue with the inherent ornation of wood."

Music Video: Travis "Moving" by Wriggles & Robins

Music // Tuesday, July 23, 2013
I spent half the morning yesterday trying to interact with Kanye West, and although I like that whole album and visual package that went with it, I coudn't really get to amped on being the slow down DJ. So instead, I found myself enjoying the new video by Wriggles & Robins for Travis' new single, "Moving". The directors noted, "All visuals captured in camera by back projecting the animated story into the breaths of the band. In the same way that you can see your breath on a cold day, we filmed at -1ºC to make the animations appear." Go, watch. 

Self-Dissections by Danny Quirk

Illustration // Monday, July 22, 2013
Massachusetts-based artist Danny Quirk specializes in photo realistic watercolors of anatomical structures, painting what cameras cannot capture with quite as much precision and delicacy as the artist's hand. Quirk's work combines classic poses in dramatic chiaroscuro lighting with a contemporary twist, creating portraits of self-discovery through dissection. This intimate uncovering of the structures that lay beneath the skin mirrors humanity's quest for self-understanding, whether in an emotional, spiritual, or physical sense.
