This isn't some organism from another planet, although perhaps that would be an equally good story. This is the result of the high speed photography series, Splashes, by Berlin based photographer, Heinz Maier. The work is done by taken photographs of water drops as they hit water. Beautiful stuff.

Late last month, influential Southern California-based artist John Baldessari opened a solo exhibition, Double Feature, at Sprueth Magers in Berlin. Known for his collage and text works, Baldessari uses quotes based on American film noir from the 1940s and 1950s, such as Blast of Silence, Dead Reckoning, Sudden Fear, or Deadline at Dawn for his newest body of work.

Because of the graphic nature of the studio shot we have of Mode 2 promoting his first solo show in Berlin, Offerings, we just went with a classic that was on the cover of our June 2007 cover of Juxtapoz. The new show continues the influential European artist's exploration with the female form, often times with elegant, yet explicit results.

Berlin-based Nike Schroeder takes needlework to a new style (at least in our eyes) with some very detailed portraits of her friends and some based on photographs. She makes embrodiery appear like illustration, using different color schemes and colored canvases to create mood.

Collaborators since 2005, this Berlin Street Art / fine art duo loves paper, public space, and a planned form of accidental beauty. Using techniques of screen print and collage, their figurative experiments dip into the nostalgic future and the ridiculous; together they toil as self-styled enthusiastic workers in a robot factory.

Strategically unloading 500 liters of paint into a busy intersection seems like a liability if you ask me, bright color paint going every which way could easly cause confusion and distraction. Luckily, no one crashed and Dutch performance artist Lepe B.T. Rubingh, who dropped this in Berlin in 2010, can dodge a lawsuit.

Erotica // Saturday, May 07, 2011
Fabulous disaster, dispair, and a little bit of lustful desire... the story behind Miu Mao's work is pretty incredible, and she shows that by creating erotic works with an underlying theme of how 'everything we survive makes us stronger'. Born in central Asia, now living in Berlin, Mao is a gorgeous disaster in progress.
