Legos for Qubic Tax

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 25, 2012
In 2012, it is not easy to convince people to do anything if there isn't some sort of comedic or clever push to demonstrate why in fact you should do it. I don't drive a KIA unless Blake Griffin is stretching it out in their commercials. Get it? Well Qubic, a company specializing in "providing tax solutions to clients throughout the UK," took this notion and used 1200 LEGO characters to demonstrate the wide-ranging amount of people united in their "duty to pay taxes."

Juxtapoz // Friday, May 18, 2012
Here at Juxtapoz HQ we were incredibley sad that were not able to make the opening of Tom Sachs' newest exhibtion Space Program: Mars.

Tom Sachs "SPACE PROGRAM: MARS" @ Park Avenue Armory, NYC

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. Sachs' will be occupying the 55,000 square foot Wade Thompson Drill Hall creating an immersive installation that is reminiscent of the Apollo Program but will be focused around Mars.

Plant style tags for sidewalk fixtures

Street Art // Thursday, May 03, 2012
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.
