Juxtapoz // Friday, February 17, 2012
We are going to call this one of the most original ideas we have seen in 2012. This is a beautiful and dramatic video piece by Jacob Sutton, where he takes pro snowboarder William Hughes and films him at night in a uniform adorned with LED lights on a French slope. What looks flawless didn't come easy: Sutton spent three nights on the slopes, using his Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C.

AirPort: An Open-Air Installation by Electroboutique

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, February 01, 2012
In 2009, Russian collective, Electroboutique created the public, open-air installation, AirPort, placing a departure flight kiosk in the middle of a forest. As the collective notes, the piece was a "poetic reflection on the possible ways of the urban civilization development. We are facing a choice: whether we should further sink our ferroconcrete teeth of architecture and transport system into the nature's body; or should we try to minimize our impact on it." Looks rather utopian to us.

We know you are thinking about heading out for the weekend, we thought a nice bit of GIF Psychedelica by Yoshi Sodeoka would set you on your right path. Sodeoka is a multidisciplinary artist from Yokohama, Japan, who’s lived and worked in New York for more than two decades.

If Social Networking Platforms Existed in 1997

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 09, 2011
Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied have created this great project Once Upon, where they have taken three major social networking websites (YouTube, Facebook, and Google+) and reprogrammed them to look as if they existed in 1997. There recreations were optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03 and Windows 95, making us feel very, very high school when we saw the results.

If you ever have a chance to see this work in person, we suggest you do.
