    Love these so much.

    Much nicer than “MISSING” on a milk carton… Great up-use/upcycling with the bottles. Beautiful.
    It’d be great to see a series of these portraits on bottles that reference personality types, beverage of preference or something- Snoop Dogg on a big old 40oz. OE bottle, or Lee Maracle on a jar of… Miracle Whip.

    I really like the idea of putting these into use as part of everyday life, making a little piece of everyday art.

    these remind me of an old 80s animation i remember seeing as a kid on sesame street or the like… cant put my finger on it. ill be tortured till i find it :) thank so much for sharing! these are awesome.

    I find these very curious and kind of creepy. It makes me think their souls are being trapped inside the bottles fixed in the state of mind that they had when they were painted. I think the way they were painted shows their personalities. So maybe if you wanted to you could make your own personality by mixing a drink by pouring a little bit of from some of the bottles of these people and drink it. I like these. They’re interesting. Makes my imagination go wild.

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.
