    Nice drawings and some nice questions to the world and society! the things that are told are highly debatable with alot of possible viewingpoints, which makes it a hard matter. While the drawings, on the other hand, make the whole piece seem very light and it calms the subjects down a little. iLike!

    It is so interesting when an artist reveals some small, simple details of ordinary life that when you look at them see how deep, different those are.

    Awesome! And moths actually only seem to be attracted to bright lights but what they’re actually doing is trying to get in behind the light which is naturally the darkest spot they can find.

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!
