The Photography of Dario Mitidieri

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Italian photographer Dario Mitidieri has traveled the world documenting festivals, celebrations, disasters, tragedies, and horrors. His photographs are just as haunting, beautiful, and moving as the events and people he captures in them. 

The Oasis of Aboukir, a Vertical Garden in Paris

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Living wall inventor Patrick Blanc's latest installation called L'Oasis D'Aboukir (the Oasis of Aboukir) includes plants from 237 different species planted in diagonal waves. Coinciding with Paris Design Week (Sept. 9th-15th) the wall occupies a five-story building and brings some much-needed green to the inhabitants of the city. We think there should be more of these out there!

Human Movement Translated into Colorful Visuals

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Do you remember when your computer would freeze and you could drag the windows around, creating endless trails behind it? We think you can still do something similar to your mouse pointer somewhere in your settings... JL Design, a Taiwanese design firm, recently produced a colorful series translating human movement into visuals that remind us of that (except way way cooler). Using six motion-sensing cameras to capture the movements, the firm captures the different movements of a father and his daughter, dancers, a romantic couple, and a martial arts expert.

Tom Waits and Iggy Pop in Coffee and Cigarettes

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
We are celebrating our October 2013 issue featuring Tom Waits in the office this month and apart from listening to a lot of Rain Dogs, we have been re-watching, listening, and looking at some of our favorite things he has done throughout his life. One of those is his short with Iggy Pop in Jim Jarmusch's "Coffee and Cigarettes," which is itself one of our favorite movies. 

Kisho Kurokawa's Nakagin Capsule Tower

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 10, 2013
Standing in Tokyo like a left over prop from a science fiction movie made in the 70s, the Nakagin Capsule Tower designed by Kisho Kurokawa faces the threat of demolition. The building was a prototype for 21st century living in an experimental architectural movement in the 1960s called Metabolism. The building is composed of two concrete towers housing 140 prefabricated modules (capsules) that are self-contained units. The capsules can be connected or combined to create larger spaces and are designed to be replaceable.

Kehinde Wiley, January 2010

Vault // Monday, September 09, 2013
Kehinde Wiley has always been one of our favorite painters, and in January 2010, we sent contributing editor Joey Garfield to the artist's NYC studio for a conversation about Wiley's ongoing and developing The World Stage series. At this point, Wiley was well on his way to becoming a world-famous painter, with major shows at museums and galleries, such as Roberts & Tilton and Deitch Projects, but we think we captured the artist at a perfect moment, ready for his World Stage... 

Patterns of Nature by Kris Tate

Illustration // Monday, September 09, 2013
Kris Tate is a freelance illustrator based in the UK who was born in Guatemala, where her native culture inspired her love of geometrical shapes, bright colors, and wild animals, with whom she strongly identifies. Using a bold palette and clean, simple forms over existing images, Tate's style is reminiscent of the late 80's and early 90's without being derivative, and her designs have been recognized and sold by the likes of Urban Outfitters, Blood is the New Black, Ohh Deer, and Deny Designs.

Based in Virginia Beach, Virginia, Josiah Marroquin is a filmmaker, graphic designer, and photographer with a signature style that combines beauty and quirk, his photographs teetering on the edge of the weird yet nonetheless replete with fashion savvy and a keen eye for gorgeous women, whether bedecked in jewels, earthy paint, or even nothing at all.

Finland-based artist, designer, and sculptor Marco Casagrande constructed four steel figures of men and placed them on a tidal short by Kinmen Island in Taiwan. Titled, Oysterman, the installation appear to be silhouettes of men standing on stilts as the tide rolls in.
