Erotica // Wednesday, September 19, 2012
'Lately, I've been working with digital Infrared photography... I'm attracted to the way infrared reveals veins and other features that are hidden in visible light. Skin and plants together remind me of our ultimate frailty and connectedness with the rest of nature.' Rhett Rebold

Olive Juice from Cousins

Erotica // Wednesday, September 19, 2012
A new video out from Cousins, the same team behind the Skittles viral video 'Newlyweds', 'Olive Juice is based on a fever dream one of them had about a distant childhood memory of a prank girls would play by silently mouthing "olive juice." In effect it would look as if they were saying "I love you". 'It's hard to put into words but it's basically about this male gaze that quickly takes a turn for the worse into the land of anxiety and emasculation.'

Nipplegate for the New Yorker

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 18, 2012
The oftentimes bewildering practices of the Facebook censorship guidelines have struck again, temporarily banning The New Yorker's Facebook page for violating community standards. The offending material? This Mick Stevens cartoon. The representation of nudity in art posted on the site has been a contentious issue, but this particular instance seems especially absurd. Read more about "Nipplegate" after the break.
