Maine-based sculptor and artist Jonathan Borofsky's public art pieces, Walking to the Sky, features 10 life-size people walking up a 30-meiter-tall-pole and has been installed permanently in several locations all over the world. In addition to the figures walking up the pole, several onlookers stand at the base gazing up at the sky. Made of stainless steel and resin, the sculpture is "a symbol for our collective search for wisdom and awakened consciousness."

Paintings by Yong Sung Heo http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-yong-sung-heo http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/paintings-by-yong-sung-heo Paintings by Yong Sung Heo
South Korean artist Yong Sung Heo this morning paints pale figures, seeking to examine the "inner psychological world" of young people today. The almost indistinguishable differences in the personalities of each of his subjects is intended to represent the things that today's youth have in common and the mind and attitude facing the current generation of artists.

Book Sculptures by Brian Dettmer http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/book-sculptures-by-brian-dettmer http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/book-sculptures-by-brian-dettmer Book Sculptures by Brian Dettmer
Working with knives, tweezers and surgical tools, Atlanta-based artist Brian Dettmer carves one page of a book at a time, exposing each layer while cutting around ideas and images of interest. Nothing inside the books is relocated or implanted, only removed. The image and ideas that he reveals are used to expose alternate histories and memories.

"Human Dilatations," Photographs by Roger Weiss http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/human-dilatations-photographs-by-roger-weiss http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/human-dilatations-photographs-by-roger-weiss
Swiss photographer Roger Weiss' Human Dilatation series 'does not fear the marks of frailness of the body and its imperfections but rather encourages the female image to appear as a whole: a shape by itself, in a game of istortions that allows one to differently relate to the image, entirely detached from the sterotypical and hypocritical notion of beauty.'

Pastel recently completed this wall in Girona, Spain for the Milestone Project. Located in Font de la Polvora a gitane neighborhood where they use the public space as a extension of their homes. The site identity is an important element because it is a community living of habits and traditions. In front of the wall is a very thin river where some wild plants gow and the animals drink water.

The Photographs of Viktoria Sorochinski http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/the-photographs-of-viktoria-sorochinski http://www.juxtapoz.com/photography/the-photographs-of-viktoria-sorochinski The Photographs of Viktoria Sorochinski
Photographer Viktoria Sorochinski’s work gracefully combines documentary and fantasy. Her work examines relationships, particularly family dynamics. Much of her work also includes children and encompasses themes of morality, personal growth, and innocence. Sorochinski’s photographs are full of both intimacy and imagination. According to the artist: “My work process is very intuitive and my aim as an artist is to create the conditions that will allow these moments of revelation to occur in front of my camera.”

Scott Albrecht "Here and Now" @ Andenken Gallery, Amsterdam http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/scott-albrecht-here-and-now-andenken-gallery-amsterdam http://www.juxtapoz.com/current/scott-albrecht-here-and-now-andenken-gallery-amsterdam Scott Albrecht
Here and Now showcases Scott’s latest work which plays off of his graphic style of intricate typographic woodworks, colorful patterning and found object re-appropriation. In this collection the artist takes inspiration from recent events in his life that have resulted in larger shifts or change happening around him. The work is aimed to highlight these situations in varying degrees – from coping with the unforeseen, to recognizing the opportunities from what is available.
