Juxtapoz // Friday, August 22, 2014
Panteón de Dolores is Mexico’s largest cemetery is 590-acre with around 700,000 graves. This inspired Mexico City based animation collective Llamarada to use the tombstones of this epic cemetery as screens to project a vibrant and colorful day of the dead cartoon.

Watch: What is Neorealism?

Juxtapoz // Friday, August 22, 2014
We watched this short video essay a week or so ago and found we were still thinking about it this morning, specifically this quote: "What Selznick sees as waste and excess becomes the essence of a different kind of cinema and sensibility, in which shots linger and veer off to include others, in which in-between moments seem to be essential, in which time and place seem more critical than plot or story."

Music Video: Action Bronson "Easy Rider"

Music // Thursday, August 21, 2014
We have a close Juxta-family connection with Action Bronson, and when we caught a look at his newest video for the track "Easy Rider," a video that pays homage to the 1969 Peter Fonda/Dennis Hopper film, we pretty became convinced that Action is having the most fun in the music industry at the moment. Directed by Tom Gould and coming off the upcoming LP, "Mr Wonderful," ... enjoy.

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, August 20, 2014
Behind the scenes of any functioning system exists a complex internal mechanism, acting and reacting, coordinating and handling all inner operations. Often, this intricate arrangement exists without an outward visible presence, but we trust it's there, all cylinders bobbing in sync...

Beautiful Bits: Real-time Face Tracking & Projection Mapping

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, August 19, 2014
We have featured projection mapping in the past, but the addition of real-time tacking of the projection surface, not to mention that the projection surface is a human face, brings this project to new heights. Mapping a highly detailed projection on to any surface can be a challenge, requiring both pin point accuracy as well as exact timing. When that surface is 3 dimensional and moving, those challenges become even harder overcome. This project brings out all sorts of new ideas for projection mapping...

Music Video: Arcade Fire "You Already Know"

Music // Monday, August 18, 2014
Arcade Fire have turned most of their support of their last LP, Reflektor, into an ongoing art project. Stage personas, TV specials, lots of masks, etc. Seems only appropriate then for their newest music video for 'You Already Know," the band can be seen shooting what appears to be a slightly higher budget selfie video with talking/singing paintings. We approve.

Flying Lotus Previews "You're Dead!"

Music // Thursday, August 14, 2014
Flying Lotus is a huge favorite in the Juxtapoz office, and it seems like the Southern California-based musician has always emphaszied a great deal on his companion artwork for all the music he makes. OnOctober 6/7, Warp Records will release "You're Dead!", the new LP from Flying Lotus featuring Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, Captain Murphy, Snoop Dogg, Angel Deradoorian, Thundercat, Niki Randa and more. FlyLo previews the album with a psychedelic journey, a "shamanic pilgrimage into the psychedelic unknown of the infinite afterlife." As he notes, "The album isn’t about the end, it’s really the beginning...". Let's get there.

Juxtapoz @ Outside Lands 2014: Woods "New Light"

Music // Wednesday, August 06, 2014
As you know, we are once again heading to the Outside Lands Music and Art Festival in SF this weekend (August 8-10, 2014), and while most people are getting ready for Kanye, Arctic Monkeys, Tom Petty, Lykke Li, Death Cab, or The Flaming Lips, there are a few bands of note playing in the afternoons that we are the most excited about. Woods would be one of those bands. They have always kept the DIY aesthetic true to their hearts, and we love their new video for "New Light" animated by John Andrews. Go see them on Sunday, August 10 at 1:10pm on the Sutro Stage. And get their new LP, With Light And With Love.
