Elliot Schultz's Embroidered Turntable Zoetropes

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Elliot Schultz combines three old-school technologies: embroidery, turntables, and the zoetrope—a device that displays a series of pictures rapidly enough to create the illusion of motion. Original zoetropes used a tube with slits in it, through which one would watch the pictures, so his animations more closely resemble a phenakistokope, which was the original incarnation of a disk-shaped illustration-turned-animation. 

Malick Sidibé's Portraits from Mali

Photography // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Born in 1936 in Bamako, Mali, Malick Sidibé grew up farming. He studied Jewelry making, but then apprenticed in a photography studio of a French colonial. In 1962, he opened his own studio, which was a novelty in his area because it had electricity, a luxury in Bamako at the time. He's well known for his studio portraits in the 1970s as well as the candid portraits he took of young people at parties during the 1960s. 

Abstract Nudes by Waclaw Wantuch

Erotica // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Polish fine art photographer Waclaw Wantuch specializes in black and white nudes. The bodies in his work are so simpliefied in form as to appear abstract. He employs dramatic model positions, shallow depths of fields, and framing to create images of bodies that at times seem alien, or recall the decapitated torsos of greek statues. 

The New Kind of Yacht Life by Vasily Klyukin

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 15, 2015
Thinking big has its ups and downs, but yes, the yacht game for too long has been dominated by design that was, well, yacht-like. Vasily Klyukin, a Russian businessman who seems to be very wealthy (he boasts on his site that he is "thefirst potential space tourist from Monaco"), has set his sites on making the best and most outrageous yacht designs. Take a look. We want the Swan.

Opening: Wayne and Woodrow White "Ass Kicking Contest"

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
I went to an Ass Kicking Contest on Saturday night and met the nicest group of folks. Heron Arts kicked off (here we go again) their opening show, with the above referenced title, at their new home. A smiling guy ushered us in at the door, and curator Noah Antieau extended a welcoming hello.

Disney and Dali: Architects of the Imagination

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Salted caramels and bitter chocolate tantalize not only our taste buds but our imaginations. Salvador Dali painted melting clocks and Walt Disney portrayed backward clocks and relentless watches in his animated Alice in Wonderland. Both men possessed the knowledge and ability to harness the sweet and sinister in the 1940’s. This outwardly odd-coupling was destined to become their joint venture Destino, which travelled its own labyrthine path until its release in 2003.

Music Video: Tame Impala "'Cause I'm A Man" (new LP, Currents, out now)

Music // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Update from an older post, with evidence that these guys are really good: Tame Impala's new LP, Currents, out today, July 17 through Modular, is really good. On the occasion, we wanted to share the new video for the track "'Cause I'm a Man" because its the summer sounds we prefer. Tame Impala and lead singer/songwriter Kevin Parker always seems to have a very good feel for the visual aspects of his music, and having the Currents cover be done by Kentucky-based artist Robert Beatty is pretty cool, too. Can't wait to see them at Outside Lands this August! Check it after the jump.

Hitchcock Magazine: la revue du suspense Collection, 1961-75

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 14, 2015
We randomly came across a cover of the French version of Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine, a printed publication that lasted from 1961-1975... the French version that is. Not sure if they went a little more salacious with the French version, but a lot of these covers feature some amazing illustrations and paintings. Even Patricia Highsmith wrote for them... not bad.
