Cody Cochrane and the case of originality

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 20, 2010
We were looking through emerging artist profiles last night and came across the work of Cody Cochrane, a painter and illustrator living and working in Toronto. Then we noticed a lot of folks out there comparing her work to that of Richard Colman’s (who we have featured in our new September 2010 edition).

A MOCAD exhibit by Design 99 / Power House Project of Detroit

Street Art // Thursday, June 03, 2010
  Power House Project's Mitch and Gina, the group that Juxtapoz' 15th Anniversary Auction benefited and is in the midst of a major Juxtapoz collaboration on the ground in Detroit, are having an exhibition under their Design 99 name at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, called Too Much of a Good Thing. I read on Core77.com that "Over the past few months, they've developed the Neighborhood Machine, a repurposed, freshly-painted Bobcat, extending the concept of the Power House. Part-sculpture, part-community tool, the vehicle can be hooked to a series of "project trailers," each specific to a task performed in the neighborhood: collecting found material, gardening (Design99 maintain a tree nursery in an empty lot), power generation with photovoltaics, and, of course, moving stuff around."     Read more about the exhibit here.
