Jacob Hashimoto likes kites. We assume. Many of his installations involve thousands of white kite-like circular and hanging parts handmade from fabric glued to bamboo frames. Often suspended from the ceiling, the thousands of fans form a collective cloud throughout the room (one of the installations even features clouds painted on the fabric).

We last took a look at the paintings of New York-based artist Eric White back in 2011. We feel the time has come to take another look through his past and more recent work! Eric's work is realism tinged with the surreal and occasional eroticism. His palette and imagery seems to come straight from somewhere between a Hitchcock film, the Twilight Zone, and a 1980s living room. Many of his paintings are also titled and based off scenes from old movies...

This series of photographs by Ivan Forde represent the process that the reader's mind goes through when reading Milton's Paradise Lost. While attending SUNY Purchase College for literature, Ivan merged literature and photography to critique poetry. The result is this fascinating series of 8 photos titled Transformation. "The act of reading the poem invites readers to put themselves under the cold eyes of self-examination...The sight of our imperfections stimulates Transformation, resulting in a non-duelist view of all our parts - accepting the process between good and evil."

We are enjoying the work of New York-based artist Kymia Nawabi this morning. Nawabi is a first-generation Iranian-American artist who describes her work as "an allegory of human behavior" and weaves a fantastical personal mythology together with "adopted gods, mythological creatures and burial ceremonies from different cultures."

This morning we take a look at the work of Ohio-born, New York-based artist Daniel Arsham. Through sculpture, drawing and performance, Arsham challenges our perceptions of physical space in order to make architecture perform the improbable.

Random International, known for it's distinctive digital-based contemporary art, has installed a 'Rain Room' at the Museum of Modern Art in New York. The installation invites visitors to experience the control of rain and explore the roles that science, technology, and human ingenuity can play in stabilizing our technology. The room is basically a choreographed downpour and encourages visitors to move in and out of it.

If you were to walk the streets of Manhattan or Brooklyn today, as in right now, it wouldn’t take long until you spotted an Easy tag in the same signature over and over again. Just look for a Sen4 or tag and it shouldn’t be to far from there.
