Here at Juxtapoz HQ we were incredibley sad that were not able to make the opening of Tom Sachs' newest exhibtion Space Program: Mars.

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Tom Sachs' newest exhibition at first glance might seem like a glorified space camp that someone is trying to call art, but understanding Sachs' style and mentality we realized that this is in an incredible exhibition not to be missed.

Carmichael Collective is a company based in Minneapolis, Mn that creates projects for the sake of creativity, simple objective right?  Using the same idea of plant tags, used to identify and educate about a particular specimen, but using them on everyday sidewalk fixtures we are all familiar with.  Apparently from the information on these tags, all these objects are ok in varying degrees of the sun!

Starry Night Installations in Nature by Lee Eunyeol

Juxtapoz // Thursday, May 03, 2012
In what reminds us of a featured artist on the site last year, Barry Underwood, we really love these light installations in nature by Lee Eunyeol. Where the Korean photographer/installation artist places the lights makes you look at the ground in a different way, and appears as if the night sky has just fallen to the ground from outer space.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
When we begin to close the day on office work, we like to try and find something that makes us laugh or has a bit of a fun element to it in the world of art. Most of the time we just look at movie trailers and music videos, but last night we came across the oversized everyday object serires by French artist Lilian Bourgeat, a good examination on distorted your visual perception and the ways we become familiar with space and porportion.
