This installation by Kento Fukuda is a simple yet effective combination of mixed media and projection. A room full of Japanese pop culture, and various animations by the artist featured on the walls and scattered laptops and monitors. The piece is about the overwhelming consumption of media, be it financial goods or online information. Video embedded below.

The Liberia Pure Honey Project

My friends, photographers Andrew Querner and Nich McElroy, have just launched The Liberia Pure Honey Project. It’s a benefit exhibition in support of Universal Outreach Foundation​’s ongoing work in Liberia, West Africa. In cooperation with the Liberia Beekeepers Association, UOF has organized the country’s first beekeeper training program and helped create Liberia Pure Honey, a social enterprise that buys, packages, and sells Liberian honey in local grocery stores. In the wake of the ebola crisis, UOF and Liberia Pure Honey are well positioned to make a lasting and meaningful contribution to the nation’s economic recovery.

All proceeds from the sale of limited edition prints will be donated directly to UOF and earmarked for the support and expansion of their beekeeper training program. Following the exhibition’s opening on March 5th in Vancouver, all works will be available for purchase from the Liberia Pure Honey tumblr.

There have been so many beautiful images donated to this project, and by many of my favourite photographers! Take a look at more images below.
