Artist Puts 21st-Century Gadgets Into Famous Masterpiece Paintings EmailEmail Korean Illustrator Kim Dong-Kyu has created a clever and comical series of images on his “Art X Smart” Tumblr that re-imagines old famous masterpieces for the 21st century by introducing modern smartphones, tablets and laptops. Picasso’s “The Dream” reclines with some headphones listening to music while Friedrich’s “Wanderer Above the Sea of Fog” has whipped out his smartphone to snap a picture of the view and (probably) post it to Instagram. The updated photos seem a little more lonely and depressing now that all of these people are just as absorbed with their smartphones as we are… Source: artxsmart.tumblr.com

Stephen Mallon—Next Stop Atlantic Photography can often dance along a thin line between art and documentation, artist Stephen Mallon takes full advantage of this. Mallon’s newest series, Next Stop Atlantic, takes an intimate look at what happens to New York City Subway cars when they are retired. Mallon captures these massive hunks of steal being dumped into the ocean to create an artificial reef in the Atlantic Ocean. New York City Subway Cars have always seemed to play an interesting roll in history of art. Immediately I am reminded of the golden age of graffiti when a writer could go All City.

THE COLLECTOR’S GUIDE: La Granada - The Pomegranate in New Spain Most frequently the pomegranate is a symbol of fertility, birth and eternal life, owing to its abundance of seeds. Its deep blood red color has led to its interpretation as a symbol of death. It also represents unity, illustrated by the many seeds bound together in a single skin. It is a symbol of royalty, owing to its crown-like terminal atop an orb. How to cut glass I posted a picture about 1 week ago on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter of me cutting glass using just string. I got LOT’S of requests for a tutorial on how I DID THIS! So here it is. '‘I’m desperate’', Gillian Wearing OBE Signs that say what you want them to say and not Signs that say what someone else wants you to say 1992-3Framed colour photographs on photographic paper mounted on boardEach 1220 x 920 mm (48 x 36 ¼ inches)I'm desperate 1992-3Edition 9/10 plus 1 Artist's ProofP78348 Gillian Wearing first attracted public acclaim when she exhibited this series of photographs at City Racing, a small artist-run gallery in London in 1993. She had been using video and photography since the early 1990s, but this was her first significant collaboration with members of the public. Standing in a busy area of South London, Wearing stopped passers-by and asked them to write down what was on their mind.

Subway Parasite: Stealth Projector Lights Up Train Tunnels Subway Parasite: Stealth Projector Lights Up Train Tunnels Article by Urbanist, filed under Installation & Sound in the Art category. Watching the city go by from an elevated or even ground-level rail system can be relaxing, but the transition to an underground section is at best boring, at worst jarring. Here to lighten the mood a bit during the duller parts of your nighttime or subterranean transit is a quirky little device designed to attach to the outer shell of a passenger train. It was created by Frédéric Eyl for a Digital Media course at the University of the Arts in Berlin. Suddenly there is a school of fish struggling to keep up, an under-earth ecosystem, or some other speed-appropriate scene to liven your day.

Classic: Eugene Smith's 'Country Doctor' - Photo Gallery For his groundbreaking 1948 LIFE magazine photo essay, “Country Doctor” — seen here, in its entirety, followed by several unpublished photographs from the shoot — photographer W. Eugene Smith spent 23 days in Kremmling, Colorado, chronicling the day-to-day challenges faced by an indefatigable general practitioner named Dr. Ernest Ceriani. Six decades later, Smith’s images from those three weeks remain as fresh as they were the moment he took them, and as revelatory as they surely felt to millions of LIFE’s readers the instant they opened the issue in which they appeared, and encountered Dr. Ceriani, his patients, and his fellow tough, uncompromising Coloradoans. Eugene Smith’s at-times almost unsettlingly intimate pictures illustrate in poignant detail the challenges faced by a modest, tireless rural physician — and gradually reveal the inner workings and the outer trappings of what is clearly a uniquely rewarding life.

Madonna of the Pomegranate The Madonna of the Pomegranate (Madonna della Melagrana) is a painting by the Italian Renaissance master Sandro Botticelli, circa 1487. It is housed in the Uffizi Gallery of Florence, Italy. Several copies of the work exist, currently held at the Berlin State Museums, the Wernher Collection in London and the Aynard Collection at Lyon. Making Rheoscopic Fluid Hello all, I recently discovered rheoscopic fluid which is used to visualize the subtle currents in liquid. It works similar to dropping dye into the fluid to highlight currents, but rheoscopic fluid will never mix!
