    technique- and style-wise, this work is identical to some other photo-collage-grapher vaguely lodged in the back of my mind…. content-wise it’s different enough I suppose, and if I remember correctly I prefer Van Empel’s work to hers. I’ll have to hit the books when I get home to confirm.

    Yes, it is exactly like the missing link between loretta lux and pierre et gilles

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

OK Go’s Impressive New Music Video Shot in Zero Gravity


This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
