The Silk Vortices of Akiko Ikeuchi (click images for detail) I am thrilled to share with you the work of Japanese artist Akiko Ikeuchi. Born in Tokyo in 1964, Akiko received a doctorate in painting from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. For over two decades she has been hanging her delicately crafted string sculptures in galleries around Japan, Korea, and New York. The installations are constructed from extremely delicate silk threads, and despite the chaotic appearance of the knotted webs Akiko plans each work as an architect would plan a building with precision blueprints that involve a complex internal framework. The resulting works evoke powerful forces of nature: tornadoes, whirlpools, and perhaps even galaxies themselves.

Street Art Utopia's Best of 2011 I couldn’t help but direct everyone to fellow public art loving blog Street Art Utopia as they have compiled a pretty decent list of the best street art of 2011. If you are just getting into the wonderful world of pasting, spraying or making the streets a more creative place, this list is a great place to start (short of Wall and Piece). One of the best things about this genre is it’s diversity – you can decided what you find gimmicky/twee or meaningful and awe-inspiring. Street art has always been the public’s voice, and the art world has yielded success to those with great ideas and a call for change. More from the list after the jump!
Google RO.ME › North Kingdom In the simplest of terms explaining it – “3 Dreams of Black” is an interactive music video developed in WebGL and optimized for Chrome to showcase its possibilities; written and directed by Chris Milk; based on the song “Black” from Danger Mouse and Daniele Luppi’s ROME album; an album that somewhat is a soundtrack to a movie that doesn’t exist. The music serves to express a story that takes place in a post-apocalyptic landscape where the main characters are played through the voices of Norah Jones and Jack White. More specifically, “3 Dreams of Black” is Norah’s lucid dream where users can partake and gain control of her characters experience. Together with Chris Milk and Google Creative Lab we took on the role to lead the development across disciplines and serve as one unifying hub to tell the story of ”3 Dreams of Black”.
