Sedin Proposal

Melanie Coles painted this message up the street from my apartment. For all those who don’t follow hockey, the Sedins are twin brothers who play for our hockey team, the Vancouver Canucks. This work was created for “Total Devotion” which opened at Little Mountain Gallery last week. Listen to her voicemail messages here.

Amazing Collaborative Drawing Performance Between Human Artist and Robot Arm


“Drawing Operations” is an ongoing collaboration between New York-based artist Sougwen Chung and a robotic arm called Drawing Operations Unit: Generation 1, (D.O.U.G._1). Together the two draw in synchronized performance, with D.O.U.G. mimicking Chung’s movements in real time using a ceiling-mounted camera and computer vision. The arm was designed in collaboration with developer Yotam Mann.

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 additional framing transforms each piece into something quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.
