Tom Sachs for VistaJet Flight Safety Video

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
I flew on Virgin America on Monday, and their airplane/flight safety video is one of the better ones in the industry if you think a bit of irony and humor is good with your "danger, your seat can't float ,you will drown" scenario you face with while they serve you white wine and diet coke on your way to San Francisco. Tom Sachs, one of the more innovative and interesting big wig artists of the moment, created a safety video for luxury private jet company, VistaJet. Who says stop-motion and Barbie doesn't equate to feeling safe?

Layered Portraits by Nerhol

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 15, 2013
The photograpy collective Nerhol's (Yoshihisa Tanaka and Ryuta Liada) latest project consists of piles of photographs rather than a single image. Their subjects sat for three minutues while they took pitures and then the prints were stacked and cut to reveal the layers, resulting in a warping of the subject's subtle movements.
