First there was the selfie. Then there was the Selfie Stick. Now we have the MacBook Selfie Stick. The device—a selfie stick outfitted with a full-size MacBook—is the product of an art project by Moises, John Yuyi and Tom Galle, who were behind the real-world Netflix and Chill Room. The device could, say, be used for FaceTime conversations or taking photos, much like a Selfie Stick kitted with an iPhone. Continue reading »

The Danish-Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson’s art is driven by his interests in perception, movement, embodied experience, and feelings of self. Eliasson strives to make the concerns of art relevant to society at large. Art, for him, is a crucial means for turning thinking into doing in the world.
Since Labor Day, 2014 photographer Mark Flower has been taking a photograph a day for a year.
“Although not all photos have been very interesting, I have allowed myself the opportunities to try new things. Through these opportunities I have shrunk myself, floated in the air, and even removed my head and replaced it with a camera. As a professional photographer and a graphic designer, I find it extremely important to allow myself these outlets to let my creative side shine. Otherwise, my job just would not maintain its level of interest. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love spending time getting to know new people through events such as weddings and portrait shoots. However, as far as photography goes I love the ability to create a world and scenarios which transcends the world we perceive.” Continue reading »
Each day as we look in the mirror, we think that we know ourselves. We are used to the image that we see before us, but the mirror can show us much more than we ever hoped to see. Sometimes it only shows basic emotions, while at other times it can highlight the deepest crevices of our soul. Continue reading »
“It all began with two porcelain parakeets on the windowsill of the house next door. Every time I passed by I would look at them. Just couldn’t help gazing. I got even more intrigued when I noticed that there were days when the parakeets would be looking out of the window, and there were days when they’d be facing the room. What makes these two so special for their owner, thought I, they must mean a lot to her, otherwise why would she display them in her window for everyone to see? Who lives in that room, what story could she tell? I couldn’t figure out what the birds were trying to tell me, my imagination was drawing its own pictures, but one thing was clear to me: the birds belonged to an old lady. The game with the unknown thrilled me. Continue reading »
Globe-trotting photographer couple Peter Sedlacik and Zuzu Galova have found a fun way to document their travels around the world. Wherever they are, they face each other, frame up a great composition, and take a picture of each other… taking a picture of each other. Thus was born the photo series/project “Lens Between Us”, which is quickly scooping up followers on Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram alike. The resulting diptychs are creative, well-composed, and whimsical in the best way. A tribute to how their focus is always on each other, the images are part travel photography, part portraiture, and challenging to boot since each shot requires that they figure out not one, but two compositions.

Marge Simpson stands despondently with a black eye next to a grinning, vacant Homer. A trickle of blood comes from Lois Griffin’s nose as Peter drapes his arm around her. Wonder Woman has Superman’s hand clasped over her mouth, while Snow White lies battered at the feet of Prince Charming.
These illustrations are the work of an artist who has put a sinister spin on iconic animations in order to highlight the disturbing realities of domestic abuse. No Violence Against Women is a project by Italian artist and activist AleXsandro Palombo, 40, who is based in Milan. It forces its audience to confront the plight some women go through under the pretence of a happy relationship or family.

“Getting to see girls’ bedrooms must have been a teenage obsession for the members of the all-male photographic collective Riverboom. Now that they have more or less grown up, they have decided to transform that dream into a reality. Riverboom’s Gabriele Galimberti and Edoardo Delille are traveling the five continents to see where girls, between the ages of 18 and 30, sleep. They have discovered that girls’ bedrooms are much more then just places where they lay down their heads – they are the places where girls read, love, dream, work and play”. – Gabriele Galimberti.

The series, entitled Southwest, is a photo project by husband and wife team Kurt and Edwige Moses. Known for their wide variety of adventures in a miniature world, the artist duo focuses on blending the one-inch tall figures into real life situations. Although the moments are fairly ordinary—enjoying a bike ride, taking a photograph, or going for a hike—the toy people add a bit of playfulness to the naturally illuminated, everyday scenes.

A pair of British artists have created this stunning installation of 9,000 silhouettes on a D-Day Landings beach to mark international Peace Day. The project, named, ‘The Fallen’ is a tribute to the civilians, German forces and Allies who lost their lives during the Operation Neptune landing on June 6, 1944.
The design was the brainchild of Jamie Wardley, 33, and Andy Moss, 50. Together with a team of volunteers the pair travelled to Arromanches beach, Normandy, to create the silhouettes, which were individually drawn into the sand. Continue reading »
“Point Blank” is an ongoing series of handguns from around the world by Toronto-based photographer Peter Andrew, Simon Duffy and Derek Blais. Captured in extreme detail, the large-scale “portraits” are undeniably in-your-face, lending an intensity you can’t turn away from. Andrew says they are meant to be studied like you would a face, the detail and imperfections found within building a story that make us wonder where they’ve been or why and how they’ve been used. The trio has photographed seven handguns thus far and continue to build the collection.
