ALEC SOTH, "2007_10zl0006" framed archival pigment print mounted to 4-ply museum board image: 50 x 40 inches (127 x 101.6 cm) framed: 54 1/4 x 44 1/4 inches (137.8 x 112.4 cm) edition of 7 with 3 APs (image © Alec Soth Courtesy: Sean Kelly Gallery, New York) “One picture leads to another,” Alec Soth tells the two filmmakers in Somewhere to Disappear (2011), a documentary that follows him around during the last two years that he worked on his photographic book, Broken Manual (2006-11). Later, in the film, he says: “I want to be carried.” Soth yearns for a subject to overwhelm his curiosity, leading him into places and situations that he couldn’t have otherwise foreseen. Photography is his means of discovering both the self and the Other, and where the two meet. It is how he finds “a path through the world.” Children of God

Grégoire Guillemin è un grafico, Illustratore e game designer francese, che recentemente si è messo a “giocare” con le figure dei supereroi. I suoi esperimenti hanno seguito due strade: da un lato ha inserito figure della cultura pop in poster che riprendono lo stile delle avanguardie artistiche della prima metà del Novecento.

Let There Be Triangulated Art Over 15 years ago the French artist and new media theorist Edmond Couchot adjudged: “the fate of image is from now on numerical.” In a series of articles, Couchot pondered how the techniques of numeric configuration (that is, computer graphics) can change the nature of art. “They do it as they are employed to control all automatic images (photography, cinema, television) because they will be, in the short or medium term, transmuted into numbers to be able to be registered, manipulated, broadcasted, preserved, retouched. Those techniques cannot be ignored by artists who are looking for new experiences and new perceptible investigations," he prophesied.
