    y’ll a’nt got no clue. his opening at 111 minna was mind fucking altering. skinner lives his art. he is his art. and if you think his art rips…wait till you hear him on the geetar and his wife on da-drums. shred cakes.

    I’ve been friends and working with Skinn for over 5 years and all this positive response to his work after all his time in the trenches stokes me out like you wouldn’t believe.

    I forwarded a link to this page to him (he’s actually taking a well deserved spin around Europe this summer to re-group from the epic radness that was the Minna show) and he’s very humbled and excited to hear it all as well.

    Thanks for the post, Jeff!

    Those are freaking excellent! Last one kinda reminds me of Hansel and Gretel in a weird way or a haunting version of the game Candyland.

    This isn’t what I usually like, but for some reason, I REALLY LIKE IT (:
    Also, and this is just me being obsessed with twitter, but the first painting is the background on Mitchell Davis’s phone.

The Hateful Eight Roadshow


Director Quentin Tarantino and cinematographer Bob Richardson wanted their latest film, The Hateful Eight, to be the eleventh film ever to be shot in Ultra Panavision (as wide as widescreen gets) and with the help of the film company they were able to pull it off.

The Hateful Eight will be projected in 70mm in select theatres on Christmas day as a good old fashioned roadshow, meaning it will feature an overture, intermission, playbill, and extra footage!

Watch the featurette below and start the countdown.

This Pop-Up Book Folds into a Functioning Camera!


After numerous prototypes, Kelli Anderson perfected a sequence of cuts and folds that could turn an ordinary piece of paper into a fully functional camera. The Book is a Camera is the ultimate pop-up experience: a book that not only explains how cameras work but actually becomes one!

The coolest part is you can support Kelli and purchase the book here but she specifically designed her pinhole camera under a Creative Commons share-alike license so you can also download the template yourself, build it, examine it, and use the knowledge to even make your own variant!

Kelli and I both spoke at Blend here in Vancouver and her talk was one of my favourites. She spoke about a wide variety of her past work including her counterfeit New York Times newspaper (she produced hundreds of thousands of copies and distributed it on the streets of New York), her amazing stop-motion tribute to the Eameses’ iconic film “Power of Ten” using images sourced from Google Images, and her paper record player/wedding invitations.

She’s the kinda person it’s almost hard to write about because she’s doing so many wildly different things. She’s currently working on a music video so stayed tuned for that!

More images and a video of her book/camera below!
