Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 21, 2012
From Isabel M. Martinez, creator of the photography series, Quantum Blink: "The photographs in Quantum Blink are composed of two exposures taken instants apart.

Betsy VanLangen has created her own voice in experimental fashion photography. Her body of work is visually stunning, and constantly refreshing with transitions from dark and arresting, to loud, bright and colorful images.

Street Art // Wednesday, June 20, 2012
Inspired by the classic arcade video game Pac-Man from the 80s, Leon Keer created the following 3D painting on the sidewalk in Venlo, Netherlands.  Come to think of it, it’s been a while since we happened upon a sit down Pac-Man machine, always conducive with a slice of pizza and some friendly competition.
