New Charlie Kaufman!

In case you haven’t heard, here’s the trailer for Synecdoche, New York – written and directed by Charlie Kaufman, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, and produced by Spike Jonze. Needless to say I have really really really high expectations for this one.

Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    this looks like it will be an interesting; yet amazing movie. I’m super stoked especially that Mr. Hoffman is in this movie as well.. by any chance do you know when it is being released for viewing? I did not see a date or I am just completely blind.

    Anytime Spike Jonez or Phillip Seymour Hoffman are involved in a project, I’m stoked. But the fact that both of them are involved in this one is super exciting.

    the thing i am almost most excited about and failed to mention above is that the music courtesy of Jon Brion. How can this not be a fantastic picture?

“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The additional framing transforms each piece into something quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
