The LED Snow Surfer

Juxtapoz // Friday, February 17, 2012
We are going to call this one of the most original ideas we have seen in 2012. This is a beautiful and dramatic video piece by Jacob Sutton, where he takes pro snowboarder William Hughes and films him at night in a uniform adorned with LED lights on a French slope. What looks flawless didn't come easy: Sutton spent three nights on the slopes, using his Red Epic camera at temperatures of -25C.

If Social Networking Platforms Existed in 1997

Juxtapoz // Friday, December 09, 2011
Olia Lialina & Dragan Espenschied have created this great project Once Upon, where they have taken three major social networking websites (YouTube, Facebook, and Google+) and reprogrammed them to look as if they existed in 1997. There recreations were optimized for Netscape Navigator 4.03 and Windows 95, making us feel very, very high school when we saw the results.

Interactive Robotic Painting Machine by Benjamin Grosser

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 20, 2011
Benjamin Grosser's "Interactive Robotic Painting Machine" is fascinating, and maybe a little bit frightening. Seeing a machine crank out a painting like that with all the mechanical gears humming with rhythmic cacophony is maybe a bit unsettling, considering that painting is often considered such an emotional, free thinking activity.

The Work of Laura Brothers

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 31, 2011
Laura Brothers is interested in pizza, and she makes these things. She is what the world at large likes to call a "Net" artist, where she makes "abstract textural structure that evoke environments both organic and man-made." She has shown at places like the NP Contemporary Art Center in New York.  We like it.

A New Short Film: "Blinky™"

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, March 23, 2011
With a tagline such as, "Soon every home will have a robot helper. Don't worry. It's perfectly safe," it will get us watching. This new film, "Blinky™", directed by Ruairi Robinson and starring Max Records from "Where The Wild Things Are," is a beautifully done, darkly twisted social commentary on man's evolving and dependent relationship with technology. Watch after the jump . . .
