Starry Night Installations in Nature by Lee Eunyeol

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
In what reminds us of a featured artist on the site last year, Barry Underwood, we really love these light installations in nature by Lee Eunyeol. Where the Korean photographer/installation artist places the lights makes you look at the ground in a different way, and appears as if the night sky has just fallen to the ground from outer space.

The Camera Collection: 16-bit History of Cameras

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
Antonio Vicentini, who has a homepage of Boobiesareawesome.tv, just posted this fun video of the history of cameras as rendered in 16-bit, pixelated form. The best part is trying to figure out what the cameras are, and how iconic certain models have become of the years.

Coro On Juxtapoz Twitter & Facebook for May 2012

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
Coro is one of our favorite artists working today. Maybe saying artist isn't enough: he draws, illustrates, paints, graffitis, game designs, character designs, does advertising work, movie production, and some product design when all of this isn't enough. With his company Massive Black, he is quite busy. He is going to somehow find time to give us a daily drop on Juxtapoz' Twitter and Facebook accounts on the things he sees and does that we all think our readers should know...

A Roach Remembered: Bug Memorials

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
You know those people who get really mad if you step and/or kill a bug? Well, they will love the work of Minneapolis' Carmichael Collective, who created this mini-street installation, A Roach Remembered, with the tagline: "This is a tribute to a cockroach that lived its life to the fullest. 2012 -- 2012. RIP little buddy."

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier @ de Young, SF

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
One of the best exhibitions we saw in 2011, perhaps over the past few years, was the exquisite Alexander McQueen knock-out fashion turned fine art visionary show at the MET in NYC (can you tell we liked it?). With this in mind, we were excited to see how The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk would play out at the de Young Museum in San Francisco. After our run through, this is another solid fashion to fine art display that we recommend if you travel to SF this summer.

Oversized Everyday Objects by Lilian Bourgeat

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
When we begin to close the day on office work, we like to try and find something that makes us laugh or has a bit of a fun element to it in the world of art. Most of the time we just look at movie trailers and music videos, but last night we came across the oversized everyday object serires by French artist Lilian Bourgeat, a good examination on distorted your visual perception and the ways we become familiar with space and porportion.
