Dreamlines Dreamlines was an interactive net-art work created in 2005. It lived a long (in Internet-era time, anyway) and happy life, but it is no longer functional: the technologies it was based on became obsolete, especially the Java browser plugin. It could be recreated with current web technologies, but until I get round to doing that, I decided to take it down to avoid frustration for visitors who might still come here. While you can’t have the first-hand experience at the moment, you can look at some documentation to get an idea of what was it like. The original description of the work Some screen captures on Flickr Video captures of different search strings on Vimeo: plum, raspberry, vacation A more documentary video uploaded by Tomás Rawski that shows the user interaction with the work You can also download the original source code [ZIP] (beware, it was made with Processing 1.0 and it is not going to run without significant updates).

Artist Erwin Wurm shows how cars are the modern pets I have always been fascinated by the phenomenon of how dogs and their owners start to look alike after a period of time. Erwin Wurm has taken this to the next level with cars. I still believe humans place an indescribable amount of love and affiliation into cars and they have become the modern pet.

Studio Visit with Anthony Crudelle-Janello « Jewett Art Gallery at Wellesley College Posted by claralieu in artists, photography, sculpture, studio visits. Tags: crayon, drawing, paper mache, photography, RISD, sculpture trackback This past Friday afternoon I drove to Rhode Island for a studio visit with Anthony Crudelle-Janello, (more widely known as Tony Janello) who will be one of the four artists exhibiting in the upcoming show “Transformations” in March 2010. We first met in 1998 when I was a student in his painting class in the Illustration Department at RISD during my senior year. I now teach Drawing at RISD in Foundation Studies and he’s continued to teach Painting and Drawing in the Illustration Department since then. We’ve kept in touch over the years since I graduated, and it was very exciting to visit his studio and get some insight on his thoughts and creative process. Crudelle-Janello’s process involves many phases and transformations in a range of media. Below is an example of how Crudelle-Janello uses backgrounds and creates sets for his sculptures.

Disturbing head sculptures by Anthony Janello Anthony Janello creates deeply emotional, distorted, and disturbed head sculptures which both stun and amaze with their astounding presence. Paper towels and cut up cardboard tubes are masterfully transformed into stone-like sculptural faces that puzzle and intrigue with their sense of mystery. Simultaneously beautiful and brutally twisted, his sculptures breathe with emotion.
