By all accounts around the Juxtapoz office, "Mad Max: Fury Road" is a really good movie, one of the best action-movies of the last few years. But, what happens when you strip much of the "special effects" from a movie loaded with lots of great "special effects." This documentary short shows us what "Mad Max" would look like without all the effects. And it's not bad...

Have you ever tried walking into an 8-bit wonderland? An animated gif? Montreal-based multidisciplinary artist Dominique Pétrin creates these fantastic psychedelic, immersive installations that seem to swallow you whole when you walk into them. I don't do drugs, but if I was accidentally dosed at a party, I would prefer Pétrin's style of hypnosis.

Austrian artist Peter Kogler began his artistic journey by adopting the tradition of conceptual and media art, and by developing his explorations at the intersection of different disciplines and media – performance, video, film, painting, computer art, sculpture, and architecture. Kogler has been interested in new, innovative art practices, not only in the field of visual, but also in performative arts, sound and music.

A 1938 issue of Radio-Craft magazine featured these photos of an RCA engineer named C.E. Burnett who was taking radio waves and turning them into patters to be used on clothes and furniture. A radio and TV engineer, Burnett photographed cathode ray tubes (same ones that would later be used to make TVs), fiddled with the voltages and frequencies and created "electronic snakeskin" patterns that could be used to design textiles.

We have featured Nobumichi Asai's real-time face tracking an projection mapping in the past. Asai and his team are back with yet another fascinating video. Mapping a highly detailed projection on to any surface can be a challenge, requiring both pin point accuracy as well as exact timing. When that surface is 3 dimensional and moving, those challenges become even harder overcome. This project brings out all sorts of new ideas for projection mapping...

We are always love seeing something new from INSA because it means experiencing public art in new and visually and technically creative ways. In addition to a new wall, INSA has launched his first ever app, the GIF-ITI viewer. Nowadays, we consume almost everything online: including art. The term GIF-ITI was coined by artist INSA when he started creating his unique animated paintings; an innovative approach to viewing and experiencing artworks produced in the public space.

"I was raised during the height of the cold war, when the threat of nuclear war loomed between two superpowers. The dramatized depictions in tv and film of such an apocalyptic demise both intrigued and scared me as a child, yet the actual historical record of the atomic age was full of antiquated, black and white images that seemed dated and a world away. This series re-contextualizes a legacy of atomic bomb tests in order to keep the ongoing nuclear threat fresh and omnipresent. . . "
