I'm not going to pretend that I was in the best headspace at 1AM on Saturday night when I decided to tune into Arcade Fire's 30 min NBC special that was aired after SNL. Part of me thought, "Hey, bands don't do network specials anymore, and Arcade Fire tend to be on the more interesting end of things, why not pour a little whiskey and watch?" What I turned to was a bizarre, experimental, oddball, celebrity-cameo'd, Roman Coppola-directed entree into the Montreal band's upcoming LP, Reflektor. We got to hand it to NBC... getting this on air takes... well, you know what we mean...

Our friends at Juxtapoz Latin America just posted this fantastic video of Monterrey, Mexico-based Rene Almanza working on some experimental painting techniques, mainly with the use of gloves. As you can see in the video, the gloves allow for an extremely fluid motion in Almanza's paintings, taking his already motion technique and allowing him to move the characters body and expressions without having to actually imply their movement. The end results are stunning...

A great experimental short from an old Juxtapoz friend Michael Langan, in collaboration with Terah Maher. In the film, a chorus of women are borne from the movements of a single dancer in this dreamlike "pas de trente-deux." "Choros" premiered at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2012 and has gone on to play dozens of festivals worldwide. The film is currently broadcast in Europe by Canal+.

201 Days is the documentation of physical sensations felt by the creator Katie Lewis. Using simple tools like pins, thread and a pencil she mapped her sentiments on a invisible grid. Each section of the grid on the wall is correlated with a different part of the body. Every time she felt a sensation in a particular area on her body, she documented the feeling onto the corresponding place on the grid with a pin and the date.

Polish-American sculptor and illustrator, Adam Nilewicz, cleverly created this silhouette of a tree by gluing large rubber stamp pieces to the brick wall and applying weatherproofing treatment to everything else. The image does not appear unless it rains or a timed series of lawn sprinklers turns on for around 20 minutes everyday to bring the tree to life.

Having tried to work with some paint programs on the iPad recently, looking at Don Shank's iPad paintings makes us sort of good, "Wow." These are good. And the way Shank describes his work, "Finger on Glass," is a little cocky, and pretty damn clever. Look at his work after the jump . . .
