Chandelier Casts Shadow of a Forest of Trees

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 10, 2013
Collaboration between the artists Thyra Hilden and Pio Diaz has produced this wonderful light sculpture, Forms in Nature, that likens a ball of tree branches. The light source in the center illuminates the ball and casts a forest of trees onto the floor, walls, and ceiling! Hilden & Diaz describe the piece, "The shadows engulf the room and transforms the walls into unruly shadows of branches, bushes, and gnarled trees. Mirrorings are thrown out upon the walls and ceilings provide weak Roschach-like hints of faces, life and flow of consciousness."

Apparently The Dude Also Takes Photographs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Aside from acting and writing books, the dude also takes photographs. Jeff Bridges gives us a unique view into the world he grew up in and from a perspective we rarely get to see: from an actor on set. Bridges uses a Widelux camera for most of the images because he says that it is the closest to what the human eye can see. "I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all the strange sources of light on set."
