    All I keep thinking is: where did all the feathers come from?

    • http://www.dannyolda.com Dannyohh

      yeah, very cool looking piece, but I hate to think they’re real feathers

      • Oana

    • MAXIMUM

      Maybe he spent like 6months on a peacock farm and picked up every feather that dropped..

      Hahaha I was thinking the same.
      Beautiful work though

    Does this remind anyone of Andy Goldsworthy, Rivers and Tides?

    • wiljago

        exactly what i thought!!!!

    Beautiful!!

    (And I also hope he picked them at the farm)

    this is borderline animal cruelty…

    It’s probably because I watch too much Sci Fi, but the final images are reminiscent of some strange planet from Star Trek. Incredible idea and use of the feathers… If they aren’t faux, I hope they were gathered humanely.

    look at the site, he is constantly playing with taxidermy animals and what not in the work…though, idk, maybe Jolly_go could look into roadkill as a more reasonable and interesting source material. . +

    The first few images look like illustrations, the way they have been photographed almost doesn’t look real, it’s a really interesting effect. I’m not sure I understand the reasoning behind hanging mass amounts of feathers in the woods though, they almost look like wrapped up Christmas trees or hammocks.

    There’s a Belgian artist called Jan Fabre who sticks green beatles to all sorts of stuff like mannequins and skulls or in this case ceilings and a huge globe.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin

shitrobot-losecontrol

One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.

Here is this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. The comments and upvotes do not go unnoticed! Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio!

The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the Disqus commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
