  • Really like the simplicity and solidity of these sculptures. The perfectionism is a delight, when it comes to the organisation and ordering of the pieces. I like the first sculpture the best because it’s like a puzzle and I really want to take it apart then put it back together. Perhaps some of these could be made into interactive sculptures, you could take most of these concepts and turn them into puzzles and games, placing pieces back into order. You could make some of the blocks different heights to make a certain pattern so that each block only has one space it could sit in etc.

    • my aunt and uncle had several wood block puzzles like this at their home and i would sit around for hours trying to solve them!

  • The first one reminds me of lincoln logs for some reason. These are really meditative.

    Do people on here really not know Carl Andre?

    • luther

      my thoughts exactly

    • Vanessa

      Same here. I guess people think he’s a newcomer, but at least they’re learning now!

  • NAMBO

    The 3rd one reminds me of the statues from the old chinese empire. It especially reminded me of that because of the sorrounding to them. It definitely makes me want to create more pattern artwork!

  • Did Carl Andre submit these to you [Jeff]?? Not to undermine Booooom, but that’s amazing!

Director Jordan Peele’s Alternate Ending to “Get Out” (Leaked Video Clip)

Spoiler Alert: Do not click below if you haven’t seen “Get Out” yet! I wasn’t completely mind-blown by this movie but I really enjoyed it and I’m excited to see what director Jordan Peele makes next (apparently his next “social thriller” is slated for 2019). I don’t want to say too much but I thought the end of the film was unexpected and satisfying. Now an alternate version has leaked and it’s interesting because it’s also not what I thought was going to happen. Watch the full clip below.

180 Creative Camp is an 8-day media arts academy hosted by Canal180 in Abrantes, Portugal, from July 2nd to 9th. The event provides a unique environment for participants and invited artists to exchange experiences, learn and create together. I’ll be headed out there to do a talk at the camp and more importantly hang with the participants. It’ll be my first time to Portugal so I’m looking forward to exploring Abrantes as well.
