Hedonism(y) Trojaner is a sculpture made by Babis, made of resin and recycled keyboard keys. We assume, and this is just our understanding of mythology, but that this sculpture is a metaphor for the knowledge that the internet gives us is a secret attack waiting to happen. And not what it appears. Okay, we are quite sure this is what this work means.

We recently ran across this photomontage by Barbara Morgan depicting media giant William Randolph Hearst extending his tentacles over the New York populace and it stopped us in our tracks. Check out this pre-photoshop image depicting one of the most powerful newspaper men from the twentieth century taking his grasp on the minds of the public.

They call it Art Remix, and we find these additions to fine art, created as "collages" by Thomas Robson, to be rather stunning appropriations. "Thomas Robson uses appropriation art to confront received aesthetics and critically re-appraise imagery in a visually saturated world, creating a contempoary Art Remix portfolio of Art Luxe images."

As the first pressure sensitive stylus option for the iPad, Adonit has finally unchained artists from their workstations and provided the freedom to create whenever inspiration strikes.

"My aim was to visually represent the way information is accessed in today's society -through the internet and television- an endless torrent of media is accessible as easy as turning on a tap..."

Last week, we attended the preview of the SFMOMA's newest exhibition, Field Conditions, an exhibit that "bends and blurs the boundaries between conceptual art and theoretical architecture, using the notion of the 'field' to frame an investigation into the construction, representation, and experience of space." One of the standout installations was the 50/50 Floor by Tauba Auerbach paired with Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's Homographies (2006) made for quite the visual and sensory experience.

Using 3D mapping is a technology that you see more and more in contemporary videos, but in our minds, you need a good actor to pull off the action. Leave it to the lead singer of the band Willlow, and their track "Sweater," who shot this entire video in a studio, on one mini-stage, with 3 beamers projecting on a floor and two walls. The results? Simply put: worth a watch.

The story of Hank O'Neal isn't just that he just quit the CIA (yes, he is literally, Mr xCIA) to shoot street art, or to produce hundreds of jazz albums, or to edit and organize wonderful literary compilations for such modern giants like Djuna Barnes, or that his apartment sits in the heart of SoHo and therefore on the precipise of the emergence of graffiti and street art culture in North America for the past three decades...

NastPlas is the collective of two Madrid, Spain based illustrators and digital artists; Dr Franken and Natalia Molinos. At first, we thought the work was burned wax on top of illustration, but we love the way the duo have digitally recreated that sort of uneven surface in their portraits.

In the digital age of today, there is no discounting digital painting. David Hockney has even done an entire museum show surrounding the concept of drawing on iPads, which is obviously not the same as a beautiful work on canvas or paper, but it is certainly something that is part of the present...
