Video: JR - INSIDE OUT - The People's Art Project TRAILER

Street Art // Monday, May 06, 2013
"This fascinating documentary tracks the evolution of the world's largest participatory art project, the wildly popular "Inside Out." Travel the globe with French artist JR as he motivates communities to define their most important causes by pasting giant portraits in the street, testing the limits of what they thought possible. In capturing the process, Alastair Siddons creates a glowing testament to the power of the image and the role that art can play in transforming lives." And in other JR news, the artist just installed a series of large eyeballs inside Rikers Island Jail! More on that soon.

Doris Kloster's Feminine Archetypes

Erotica // Friday, May 03, 2013
Doris Kloster is a world-recognized artist and curator whose unique vision has found expression in art books of her own conception, international art exhibitions, installations and films. Her portraits of nude women allow her to focus on confronting female stereotypes. Femme Fatale, vamp, bimbo, bitch goddess, Lolita, whore -- what power do these words hold over women's self image? These women own their sexual power and are not afraid to show it. Some of the women pictured here are professional actors, others are models, still others are performance artists...

This incredible image was taken last November by the Cassini spacecraft of a hurricane on the surface of Saturn. Launched in 1997 to study Saturn, the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft arrived in 2004 and has been primarily studying the Great White Spot, a massive storm that occurs every 30 years. The Hurricane image is one of the first sunlit detailed views of Saturn's north pole. The eye of the storm is approximately 1,250 miles wide and spinning about 330 miles per hour!

Apparently The Dude Also Takes Photographs

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Aside from acting and writing books, the dude also takes photographs. Jeff Bridges gives us a unique view into the world he grew up in and from a perspective we rarely get to see: from an actor on set. Bridges uses a Widelux camera for most of the images because he says that it is the closest to what the human eye can see. "I think I have a perspective that not many people have. And I get to take advantage of all the strange sources of light on set."
