    Eyehategaod- I wouldn’t say its a “realistic depiction of America.” America is a big place. We get a bad enough rap. I don’t see this where I live, then again we don’t even have “Hardee’s” in Michigan let alone Kzoo.

    I love the photos though. It’s obviously somewhere’s troublesome reality.

    The star, his posture is evil, the cross, the kid, the balloons, the dark vehicle, all disturbing. Great capture of a nightmare.

    frightening part is that ronald is the least frightening of all these photos.

    I agree with Partick, although clowns are everyone and their mums’ phobia, the scary part is that these images are seen in a jovial light because we all recognise what they represent. I think what Susana depicts is our loveless understanding of how we are ruled by consumerism and the children in these images will grow up knowing nothing else.
    …..but I might be wrong!

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!
