The Darkness: Photography by Bill Henson

Erotica // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
Australian photographer Bill Henson has long been a staple in the photography world, sometimes with controversty attached (see wikipedia). But this series is dark, mysterious, a little creepy, as you go in and out of the light and see subjects emerge and fall back into the darkness. Yes, Henson has an odd track record of picking models, but these photos are arresting to say the least.

We are big Jonas Wood fans. Huge. His last show at David Kordansky in LA was probably our favorite of 2014. Now, he just opened a show with his uber-talented wife and ceramic artist, Shio Kusaka, at Gagosian Gallery in Hong Kong. So now we are huge Shio fans, too.

Fibonacci Zoetrope Sculptures

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, January 20, 2015
These are 3-D printed sculptures designed to animate when spun under a strobe light. The placement of the appendages is determined by the same method nature uses in pinecones and sunflowers. The rotation speed is synchronized to the strobe so that one flash occurs every time the sculpture turns 137.5º—the golden angle. If you count the number of spirals on any of these sculptures you will find that they are always Fibonacci numbers.
