New mural from Blu in Bologna, Italy

Street Art // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
We are patiently waiting for a new epic stop animation from Blu like the ones that blew everyone’s mind a few years back. Not to say that his murals aren’t certified homeruns. This new wall was painted on the XM24 building in Bologna, Italy, a space that supports and promotes social change, vegetarianism, and anti-fascism. You can see content relating to Star Wars and Lord of the Rings on this one.

Music Video: Sin Fang "Look At the Light"

Music // Thursday, March 14, 2013
We are always looking for great music videos, either in their simplistic mastery of their full-blown artistic expression. Oh, and it helps if the song is good. Sin Fang's "Look At the Light" video, directed by Máni M. Sigfússon who is actually the person behind Sin Fang, is a stunning piece of video art, taking some of the concepts we have loved recently in the double-exposure works of Pat Perry or Oriol Angrill Jordà, but adding some experimental digital elements.

A Sound Sculpture by Daniel Franke

Using three different cameras to record the motion data, artist Daniel Franke created a moving sculpture visualizing a musical piece with a dancer's body.

Vivian Loh: Beauty and Shame

Erotica // Wednesday, March 13, 2013
  Vivian Loh describes her photos as "a reflection on the human's naked form being a source of beauty and shame." These photos are intensely honest, presenting the body as the ultimate and undeniable human expressor. Loh's deft handling of light and color articulate an innate relationship between the model and her environment, bringing to mind the perennial imagery of Eve and her walk through Eden.
