    Wow. Try hitting play on all three of the videos, turning up the volume on your computer and zoning out. Sounds like a rainstorm. :)

    I played all three videos at the same time.
    It sounded like a rainstorm.

    staring at just the filler wire in the third video gives the impression that a circle has been formed out of the dc-motors. the rainstorm is incredible!

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like this before, very cool idea though. I’ve been to galleries and heard strange sounds mixed with footage on large projectors but I don’t think I’ve ever seen a ‘sound sculpture’ before. I bet it’s even better to be in the room at the same time.

    very interesting to look at and hear – love this original concept

    I saw/heard this installation a few months ago at the Vooruit in Ghent, Belgium, it was part of an exhibition there. I really loved it, the sound was really overwhelming, and yet the idea is so simple. it put a smile on my face :)

Artist Spotlight: j.frede


Beautifully combined images in this series by Los Angeles-based artist j.frede. Made with seemingly banal landscape photographs purchased at flea markets and arranged into a single scene, these collages effectively merge different times and places together, creating entirely new landscapes. The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
