12,000 Toy Soldier Peace Sign by Ole Ukena

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
German conceptual artist Ole Ukena creates humorous and intriguing works of art, interweaving a variety of media including text, video, photography, drawing and sculpture. They could be described as bound by a common thread of complex simplicity. From his peace sign constructed of 12,000 toy soldiers to his bench made of nails and reading "trust," Ole's work frequently uses language, whether it be symbols or actual text, to build riddles 'that await completion in the viewer's mind.'

Interactive Installations by Ernesto Neto

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 17, 2013
We are all about interactive art. We also have very fond memories of diving into a giant pool of plastic balls at the McDonalds Playpen as a kid and these installations by Brazilian artist Ernesto Neto remind us of being a child again. The plastic balls in this case are suspended by the thousands from colorful netting allowing exhibition visitors to climb and walk along the structure. He has also created some wonderfully comfortable looking hammocks... 

Update: Decaying Fine Art by Valerie Hegarty

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, July 16, 2013
We say decaying fine art, but the work of Valerie Hegarty is just so much more. Ravaged paitings, melting canvas, cracked walls, weathered works are all the characteristics of Hegarty's work. Valerie showed at The Queen's Nails in San Francisco earlier this year and is currently in an exhibit at The Brooklyn Museum through December 1st, 2013. The New Yorker called her work a look into "waning powers of a nation and fractured affairs of state." Perhaps of all culture in general?

Video: Robert Hodgin's "Boil Up" Installation @ the Auckland War Memorial Museum

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, July 10, 2013
As part of an installation at the Auckland War Memorial Museum, Brooklyn-based artist Robert Hodgin recently was contracted to animate and render a feeding frenzy of fish for the interactive Moana - My Ocean exhibit. The phenomenon, called a "boil up" is an amazing twisting, spinning, hectic mass of predators and pray feeding on each other and plankton. The installation will surround visitors in the "boil up" as the schools of fish swarm about them. Awesome.
