    Wow. These are so beautiful. Whimsical almost.

    Fantastic work.

    A really nice push and pull of line work and experimental textures.

    Love it! Fiona uses paint in so many different ways…That really gives a lot of character and depth to her work.

    Yes, I just love these abstracts which evoke nature and whimsy. The color choices make me think of rainy days in Oregon—gray sky with a forest of greens.

    Fiona Ackerman your work is scrumptious and mouth watering. It appears to be watercolor although the mention here is that these are paintings. Sturdy like painting and delicate like watercolor is a nice mixture, whatever the case may be it’s a real pleasure to see your work sparkling and refreshing, gentle and at the same time rugged. It reminds me of the lollipops of my childhood and the frozen icies of my long ago childhood summers. I am reminded remotely of Murakami who has that same kind of color and youthful beauty in his work, both of you are in good company with each other. A world of success to you Fiona!

Music Video: GTA “Red Lips feat. Sam Bruno (Skrillex Remix)”

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.

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm


“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.
