Yukai Du's "Way Out" Animation

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 13, 2015
‘Way out’, Yukai Du's MA graduation animation is inspired by ‘Alone Together’ by Sherry Turkle and a reflection of modern life in this digital age. The exaggerated contrast between emotionless citizens and characterized phones reveals our over-­‐dependence on virtual communication. A dramatic and extreme consequence shows a negative attitude, for which no one can escape the trend of technology that originally comes from the endless appetence of human beings.

Kris Kidd and Cameron Lee Phan Present “A History of Bad Men”

Photography // Monday, January 12, 2015
Strewn across the highway in fur and fresh tears, doused in the same fear and guilt as every shamed boy before him, Kris Kidd walks. By his own admittance, the highway is his playground and he is a too curious child on the cusp of manhood and manic depression.

Spend the Night in Sweden's Ice Hotel

Design // Monday, January 12, 2015
Bring your parka, this ice hotel is not for the faint of heart. The temperature never drops below 23 degrees Fahrenheit and guests sport thermal underwear and hats and slip into a sleeping bag atop blocks of ice, a thick mattress, and reindeer skins. Now in its 25th year, the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, Sweden welcoes 50,000 visitors each year under a new artistic scheme. Each year, thousands of artists and creatives take part in influencing the design of the hotel. 1,000 tons of frozen water and 30,000 m3 of 'snice' (snow and ice particles mixed with air) make up this year's edition.

Juxtapoz Hyperreal: Joel Rea

Juxtapoz // Monday, January 12, 2015
I'm sort of a hybrid, like most contemporary painters. I'd say the closest description I could give of myself is that I'm a Photo-Surrealist painter. I'm a huge fan of Surrealism, Sci-Fi, Fantasy and Mythological Art, and that attraction creates my own thirst to indulge. Photorealism has been the backbone of my painting technique but instead of making paintings that can be mistaken for a photograph, I'm attempting to create images with a sense of newness, featuring personal narratives and symbolism.
