Land of the Free. A great series of portraits by Steve Schofield. I never really got into Star Wars but I did secretly watch Star Trek: The Next Generation quite a bit (You did too, YOU LIAR!). These days I’m not into Sci-Fi all that much, but I do love finding photography and other documentation of people that are totally emersed in very specific sub-cultures!
We’ve got a contender for music video of the year! Director Grant Singer takes a page out of the Nabil playbook in this surreal visual for Skrillex’s remix of GTA’s “Red Lips”. Fantastic set and costume design here; a terrific follow up to Skrillex and Singer’s “Burial” video, both of which feature the bone-breaking choreography and dancing of Brooklyn’s Adedamola Orisagbemi (better known as Ringmaster Nugget). You’ll wanna watch this one twice.
Watch the official video for “Red Lips” below.
“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.
