Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
This morning we take a look at London-based photographer Alma Haser's Cosmetic Surgery series. Each photograph is a three-step process. After taking the portrait, Alma will print multiple images of the subject's face and fold them into complicated origami modular constructions. She then places it back on the original face and re-photographs the whole thing.

Man as Beast by Charlotte Caron

Illustration // Monday, July 15, 2013
This series of images from French artist Charlotte Caron combine photographic portraits with the painted faces of various animals in an attempt to reconcile humanity's duality as both man and beast, seemingly civilized and beyond the feral forces of nature, yet also irrevocably bound to it and part of it. Our inner beast is lifted to the surface in Caron's paintings, still partially recognizable as human yet expressing the visceral souls of animals, whose behaviors and proclivities we still share despite our greatest efforts to deny it. Perhaps coming to terms with our animal-selves will help humanity see nature as a part of our deepest identity, its survival intertwined eternally with our own.

Music Video: SMALL FEET "Rivers" by Oskar Wrangö

Music // Monday, July 15, 2013
We don't know much about the band Small Feet, but first thing is first, their track "Rivers" is an eerie folk song in the vein of early Bonnie Prince Billy or Microphones. And the video, directed by Oskar Wrangö, is in the vein of a guy reverse running whilst on fire in the woods. It all works together quite well. Don't try this at home... or in your local wooded forest.
