artparasites Illustration by Vali Petridean Someone recently asked me whether I think a love story is worth living even with a bad ending. Had they asked me this three or even two years ago, I would have found ten thousand arguments not to do it. Not to embark in that serious, outstanding yet critical and consuming kind of relationship that only lifts his spirit to later drag it into mud. You see.

Ashes & Milk Blog » Blog Archive » Bryan Nash Gill Relief Prints I am extremely excited to welcome Bryan Nash Gill and to announce that we are offering his work at Ashes & Milk. As a lover of natural textures and literal translations of beauty, I am completely embraced by the above print. Through relief printing and a laborious rubbing technique Byran created the above piece Hemlock 82 (Bryan literally scratched his fingernails over every surface of the tree). At the grand size of 52″ long x 38.5″ wide the actual diameter, texture and pattern of this tree section is gorgeously translated onto paper. Living next to an old mill, Bryan is able to procure beautiful specimens to his studio. The above image shows Bryan preparing the surface of a Hemlock tree cross section into a print block.

L’intuition, cette affinité entre science et art Faire toute la lumière sur un principe mathématique inexpliqué : pour l’édition 2011 de la biennale essonnienne La science de l’art, deux scientifiques et un artiste relèvent le défi. “Tout part d’une intuition”. Oui, c’est à partir d’une simple intuition que naissent les idées créatrices de Flavien Théry, artiste invité de la biennale essonnienne d’art contemporain La science de l’art.

Archée / cyberart / cyberculture artistique. Du corps à l'avatar - dix ans après Emanuele Quinz En 1999, l’exposition Der anagrammatische Körper 1 marque la fin d’une période. Inaugurée par Post-Human, réalisée par Jeffrey Deitch en 1992 2, la decennie 1990 a vu le corps défrayer la chronique de l’art. Les grandes expositions comme L’art au corps (1995) et Hors-Limites (1994-1995) 3 ont traçé une généalogie des pratiques contemporaines qui proposent le corps comme support et champ d’exploration de l’art.

MARIN DEARIE > hello Selected Works 138 Years of Popular Science (2011) In the Fall of 2011, I was asked by the publishers of Popular Science magazine to produce a visualization piece that explored the archive of their publication. PopSci has a history that spans almost 140 years, so I knew there would be plenty of material to draw from. Working with Mark Hansen, I ended up making a graphic that showed how different technical and cultural terms have come in and out of use in the magazine since its inception. Project Cascade (2010 – 2011) 14 Paintings That Revolutionized Art From Gustav Klimt's gilded aesthetic to Hieronymus Bosch's devilish landscapes, the realm of art history has seen its fair share of radical painters. Today we accept the work of these artists as part of the canon, but at the time of their debut, masterpieces like "Adele Bloch-Bauer I" and "The Garden of Earthly Delights" were unprecedented in their boundary-pushing style and subject matter. A new book titled The Paintings That Revolutionized Art brings together works by Hokusai, Cezanne, Munch, Vermeer and more, attempting to craft an art world listicle to trump all other listicles. Consisting of 100 iconic paintings spanning over a millennium, the pantheon of artworks tips its hat to a diverse range of genres and movements. We've compiled just 14 of the 100 paintings below (with brief quotes from the book). 1.

Africans are fighting media poverty-porn by tweeting beautiful images of their real lives Everyone is aware of the wasteland that is the current state of Greek economic affairs, as the nation quickly approaches its financial melting point. Yesterday Greece missed the deadline to pay €1.5 billion ($1.7 billion) to the International Monetary Fund, a default that is likely to cause further turmoil in economic activity by creating more uncertainty for lenders. But even as Greek banks are closed and ATMs are nearly empty, political elites and creditors are stagnant arguing over conditions and structural adjustment policies of the bailout deal that has been offered. The problem is that while Greek banks lie on life support and elites debate in air-conditioned board rooms, the Greek people, especially pensioners, are suffering.

“dance, dance, otherwise we are lost” [P.B.] There are deep noises of gallops. The brown earth covering the floor reveals hundreds of tracks of wild animals in stampede. But instead, it is a set of dancers what appears on scene. Fashion Projects July 29th, 2009 Merce Cunningham and Fashion Merce Cunningham wearing a bulging Kawakubo’s costume.
