    Really into these pics. I worked as a bee keepers assistant grade 10-12 oh the memories these bring back.

    interesting. whta’s up with that bee thing ? interesting theme..

  • Maya

    it looks like the figure is holding up a (blank) mirror in #3. very cool.

  • Benjamin

    These are great. I love the subject, the way it’s executed, everything. One of the best series of paintings I’ve seen on booooooom.com.

  • dno

    The colours and style of theses images remind me of Jeff Jordan’s work…He did some cover art for the Mars Volta.

    Awesome!

    I like all of them. I’ve been wanting to bee keep for a while, but I don’t really have the space. With bees always dying now, it’s a shame that people don’t do more of it. Bee keeping should be a priority for most farmers, and people who have the space to do it.

    These reminded me of this Pieter Bruegel painting:

    i love these, especially the way the landscapes slope off into the distance and the atmosphere of them.

    i am also going to bee keeping club to ‘educate myself in the art of bee keeping’ in the hope of getting a hive and swarm next summer !! Very excited

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-KALEIDO

 

Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset

Rosset5

A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
