Boxes of Death is an art exhibition where 50 artists are each given their own coffin to do with what they want. The idea spawned from Kane Quaye, a famous coffin maker from Africa. His philosophy was that a coffin should not just be a pine box, but something that represents the person inside and their life.

Supreme always has a great art collaboration each season, and we thought that the HR Giger deck and jacket that was announced last month was solid enough. This week, the NYC-based fashion stalwart announced a collection with the legendary artist Raymond Pettibon (cover of Juxtapoz n100 if you are counting at home.) The collection features a skate deck design, hoodie, jacket, and t-shirts in multiple colorways. Go get it starting on September 18.

Khalil Joseph directed two of our favorite music videos (we should probably call them short films) from the last couple of years, Flying Lotus' "Until the Quiet Comes" and Shabaaz Palaces' "Black Up." Back in 2010 Khalil also joined forces with the renowned Brazilian singer and actor Seu Jorge (City of God, The Life Aquatic) to create a two-part film inspired by Jorge's self-titled Seu Jorge and Almaz album.

The NY Times just published a fantastic and fascinating video about the delicate workings of an art handler, especially when said art handlers have to remove a 19' x 20' Pablo Picasso curtain that had been hanging for over a half century in the same spot in the Seagram Building on Park Avenue in NYC.

Let's get Escher. Metronomy is a band that understands how to make a good music video, a memorable one, one with a little extra touch of artistic detail in every video. For their new single, Month of Sundays, the band had director Callum Cooper create a visual look. The director told Nowness, "When I heard the track, the stark harmonies brought to mind the Russian children’s choirs of the 1970s."

Despite the deep and complex chemistry of analog instant film, with new meaning, it has returned to our lives. Turning light into images, if not ingenious, is then the simple joy of watching magic develop.
