It’s physical construction alone is worthy of admiration, feeling more like a work of art to be protected than a rag to toss carelessly in your bathroom. My last issue was actually delivered in a carefully packed box with a free CD and a viewmaster reel (feat. designer toy art by Sam Flores, Mark Ryden, Jeremy Fish, Luke Chueh, etc.). At first, I was a bit disappointed to discover that it was only a quarterly publication.

However, after experiencing what they deliver, the infrequency of issues has actually proven itself to be a testament to their attention to quality, more than anything. Each issue is full of extensive spreads and/or interviews, showcasing the backstories and details of various artists. We’ve written about Kirsten in the past and addressed her tremendous contributions to both Seattle and the Pop-Surrealism/New Contemporary/low-brow art worlds as a whole. Synaptic Stimuli.

When a droplet falls into shallow water, it creates a crown or "coronet".

This droplet simulation was calculated using Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH). SPH is one of the most impressive-looking fluid simulation techniques.

Hallucination. Naoko Ito- installations picture on VisualizeUs. Michael Shapcott - Part 2. Work in Progress (Graphite) I’ve always been fascinated with the idea of seeing into the future.

Michael Shapcott - Part 2

Ultimately I feel that we are the creators of our own destiny but also that there is this mystery and force that is greater than ourselves simultaneously at work. It’s no doubt that our choices and actions help to create our future but how much is left to fate or to the great threads that link all of our lives into one? Perhaps most intriguing, is there a way to tap into and obtain a glimpse of what can or will happen to us? With these questions and ideas in mind, I decided to create this visual story of a girl who traveled a long distance and overcame many challenges to obtain an ancient power to see into the future.

The girl in the painting is named Crystallina. The Death of Crystallina 24″ x 36″ Graphite/Acrylic/Oil on Canvas. 026.JPG (JPEG Image, 1600x1200 pixels) Arts. Paul Villinski artwork > birds and butterflies. Birds and butterflies I am drawn to humble, yet evocative materials; in this case, crushed beer cans from the streets of New York - every one of them once raised to someone’s lips.

Paul Villinski artwork > birds and butterflies

My process of “recycling” them into images of butterflies is a quiet physical meditation, a yoga of tin snips and files and more: • on beer can butterflies As the butterflies alight on the walls of my studio, they lead into an exploration of formal, painterly issues. Often, they want to gather into a certain shape, or fly off on a particular tangent, and I let them.

They function both as marks in these abstract, three-dimensional “paintings,” and as actors in curious narratives. Some pieces develop a quirky, magic-realist quality, as if a strange child has trained the insects to perform some ritual dance we are not usually privy to. Butterflies seem impossible.

Bernie Lubell´s talk at Ars Electronica

The return of the ars electronica posts. To be honest with you, this is going to be a messy time on wmmna. There are still tons of stories to write about Conflux, my little trips to Chelsea, to Beijing and there are a few more reports in store. Right, here's the notes i took during the talk given by Bernie Lubell as a winner of the Interactive Art category. Erkki Huhtamo, member of the jury this year, introduced the forum by explaining how people had been complaining that the interactive component of the winning works had not always been obvious over the past few years. There's no electronics involved in Lubell`s installation, just wood and pneumatic components. For Lubell, the winning work Conservation of Intimacy is all about having people physically involved, the body is part of the installation. The elaborate wood construction is modeled on a computer; human beings assume the role of the processors.
