Mathias Schmied was born in 1976 in Berne, Switzerland. He Lives and works in Crest, a small village outside of Lyon.

The work of American artist Margot Knight sticks in the mind: a strange parallel universe of double takes and playful, sometimes dark, surrealism. Beginning with a sequence of photographic images created while a researcher at Fabrica—Benetton’s communications and research centre founded in 1994 to foster young creative talent from all over the world—Margot went on to develop her conceptual photography in bundles of themed images.
She draws inspiration from a rich history of photographic artists who focus on the body and her parents’ medical textbooks. She says, “I begin with objects or bodies or plants and try to give them more life, or a different kind of life. Loneliness, exuberance, and wonder take on physical form.” Her work has been exhibited all over the world and appeared in over 40 international publications. She currently lives and works in Seattle, where she is working on a new series called Procreation.
Some months ago, I had featured Passion Pit’s official video of “Sleephead” at Scene 360 Video channel. Now, I found this remake by director Barker Gerard (above). Great editing and rhythm!
