Felix Hayes & Ben West's Google Book

Juxtapoz // Monday, July 09, 2012
Let's face it, Google is our dictionary, our library, our research database, and our go to for just about anything from recipes to driving directions. Who uses encyclopedias anymore? A physical dictionary? Not us. It is a bit sad that these objects are becoming obsolete, but so it goes (to quote Vonnegut's Slaughterhouse-Five).

From PBS: "The Evolution of 8-Bit Art" Video

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 14, 2012
PBS' Off the Book specials are fantastic short documentaries covering a wide-range of subjects, and new one recently aired and posted was "The Evolution of 8-Bit Art", talking about the wide-reaching impact the simple pixelated artform has had on the greater whole of contemporary culture, music, art, and memory. It has grown so far beyond Atari and Nintendo, with even the current E3 convention showcasing a nostalgia for the power of 8-bit.

When the World Ends: Works by Vladimir Manyuhin

Juxtapoz // Thursday, June 14, 2012
Everyone has their vision of the end of the world, the apocalypse, when nature, aliens, or war catches up to us. Some think it will be a bomb, some think global climate change, I think that British boy band The Wanted. Russian digitial artist creates his "life after the apocalypse" illustrations with Photoshop and 3DMax, and they are stunning to behold, even if we hope he is wrong.

Classic Paintings Go Modern by Dorothee Golz

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, June 12, 2012
You ever see a classic portrait painting and think that the subject looks nothing like people look today? I do this all the time. Girl with a Pearl Earring? Scarlett Johansson almost pulled the look, but most of the time modern times and classical painting has a separation. Artist Dorothee Golz has taken modern bodies and scences and mashed them with the faces of some of the most classic of portrait art. At times, the results are fantastic.

The Blind Self Portrait Machine

Juxtapoz // Saturday, June 09, 2012
This is pretty cool, and to be honest, quite helpful. Kyle McDonald and Matt Mets teamed up to create the “Blind Self Portrait Machine”, a machine that will assist you in creating your very own self-portrait. Maybe some of you don't want this, but we are quite sure this is the answer to all holiday cards from now on.

Deep Fried Gadgets by Henry Hargreaves

Juxtapoz // Monday, June 04, 2012
In an attempt to demonstrate a unique view on the fast-pace consumption of new electronic products and gadgets (and our rapid discarding of older technologies), Henry Hargreaves has taken some of the familiar products of the 20th and 21st centuries and deep fried them like a meal at your favorite fast food restaurant.

Coro On Juxtapoz Twitter & Facebook for May 2012

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, May 02, 2012
Coro is one of our favorite artists working today. Maybe saying artist isn't enough: he draws, illustrates, paints, graffitis, game designs, character designs, does advertising work, movie production, and some product design when all of this isn't enough. With his company Massive Black, he is quite busy. He is going to somehow find time to give us a daily drop on Juxtapoz' Twitter and Facebook accounts on the things he sees and does that we all think our readers should know...

My Personal Universe by Zhan Wang

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 19, 2012
This ambitious and monumental project by acclaimed Chinese sculptor Zhan Wang has us mesmerized by its complex nuances in process and finished product revealing a poetic sense of versatility that relates to very specific instances of the interpersonal to larger concepts as broad as the "initial state of the universe."

Disruptive Innovation and the Arts

Juxtapoz // Thursday, April 12, 2012
Marcel Duchamp was an O.G. disruptive innovator of art as we know it. At the tail end of March this year, the Haas School of Business at U.C. Berkeley hosted the Economist's Ideas Economy: Innovation conference, generally focused on innovation, but with the more specific theme of disruptive innovation woven through the day's activities. That theme may have a resounding impact in the arts as we go further down the path of the millennia. Disruptive innovation is primarily associated with Harvard Business School professor Clayton Christensen. . .

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 11, 2012
We have featured Nick Gentry on the site before, interviewed him as well, and today we just saw a video the UK artist just posted, XChange. Gentry, who takes used floppy disks and creates portraits from them, has compiled a video montage of some of the details that go into his portrait work.
