Phillip Stearns is a New Media artist behind a Tumblr producing daily glitch screen shots. He took these screenshots and made them into textiles, blankets and tapestries. The glitched pixels translate perfectly into the weaves.

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.

Two things are working quite nicely here. One, this track from UK-band Foals, "My Number," from their LP Holy Fire, is really solid, and the directors of the video, US (the directing duo consisting of Christopher Barrett and Luke Taylor) have done a brilliant job with motion capturing the band in a unique and slightly "draw-by-numbers" video. Well, it's better than than. Just watch...

A great experimental short from an old Juxtapoz friend Michael Langan, in collaboration with Terah Maher.

"Choros" premiered at Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival in 2012 and has gone on to play dozens of festivals worldwide. The film is currently broadcast in Europe by Canal+.
