As we are finalizing our plans for the 2012 edition of Art Basel Miami Beach, we came across something we will not be missing this year. Tumblr has announced Moving the Still: A GIF Festival, curated by online art market Paddle 8. This year marks the 25th anniversary of the GIF, and it has come a long way from tricking out your MySpace page and dancing babies.

With the upcoming election less than a month away, November 2012 feature artist Shepard Fairey (not to mention an artist set to open a new show in London this Friday, October 19) teamed up with InkCards and created a postcard you can mail for free to friends and family to just simply remind them to vote.

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."

Released at the end of July, Adonit’s Jot Touch Stylus had one goal: Give professional artists a reliable tool to create on the go. 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.

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.
