Evan Roth, October 2010

Vault // Thursday, August 22, 2013
Evan Roth might be having the most fun of anyone in art. Not only did he create an algorithm that allows for his website to come up first when you Google search "bad ass motherfucker," but he is the man behind innovative and inspiring works for both web and the physical world, including the Graffiti Research Lab and Free Art & Technology Lab (F.A.T. Lab), a web based, open source research and development lab. You know that Google Driverless car rampage? That was Roth and friends, and this is our interview with Roth in October 2010.

He depicts landscape imagery on topographical tectonic plate shaped panels. The amorphous sculptural wall structures lead through a passageway of patterned wallpapers portraying the elements in the earth’s stratum. Photos and more after the jump…

Regardless, we began this post to show what UK-based Lucy McLauchlan created while in the Azores this past July for the Walk & Talk Azores festival. Her work, as you can see, fit seamlessly amongst the aged buildings and narrow streets.
