    The first is awesome, and the landscape these are placed in is killer.

    Are these photos of paintings or this some kind of Photoshop voodoo?

      with the image within image works, he shoots the area (eastern washington), returns home to make large prints, returns to the same scene and constructs the new piece to be photographed. other works involve merely moving parts of the scene, like this pile of dirt which was carefully rotated and rebuilt in place… http://chrisengman.com/index.php?p=dust-to-dust&w=dust-to-dust stellar work!

    These are really captivating, trying to understand them, I love how it looks like the canvases have been painted, it took me a while to see the second board in the first photo. I love that you have to figure the images out, you can perceive them in your own way, as to how they work. My favourites are the first and last simply for the way they make you think about them a bit longer than the other two to understand them. I really like the setting chosen too.

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

skrillex-redlips-gta04skrillex-redlips-gta02 skrillex-redlips-gta03

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.
