Booooooom Reader Submissions: March

march-submissions-600

With all that’s been going on, the project we have coming up in Barcelona, and the release of our art/skate film with the Zenga Bros, I completely forgot to put up this month’s Reader Submissions post!

For those that don’t already know, this is the best way to submit your work to be considered for a post on Booooooom. Thanks again to everyone for up-voting work you like and leaving the positive comments to each other, it really pumps people up, and helps me see what work you like. I encourage you to share your work here because these posts get a lot of traffic and even if your work is not a fit for Booooooom it still gets seen, and definitely sends traffic to your own websites.
 
Please share your work here this month. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.
 

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.

Dario Puggioni

Dario Puggioni 1

Fascinatingly strange portraits from Italian born, Berlin based painter Dario Puggioni that portray, according to Puggioni, subjects that exist in a world of complete silence.  The result of this existence is an evolutionary step that is also silent: subjects growing plants from their bodies.  See more of Puggioni’s paintings below.

Video of the Day: A VHS Style Journey Through India in 4 Minutes

albanendlos-umda-01albanendlos-umda-03

This video of David Aufdembrinke’s six-week trip to India might have been a lot more boring if it weren’t for some fantastic editing and some really unique colour grading. I don’t fully understand how the final effect was achieved but I know it involved an old VHS tape, a magnet, and lots of compositing. The editing style is very similar to that crazy video from Turkey, and if you’re an editor you may find yourself trying to advance frame by frame to understand how certain sequences were cut together.

Booooooom Party Radio: Interview with Go Yama

go-yama-interview

I’m excited to share with you this interview and exclusive mix for Booooooom by Garrett “Scooter” Oyama, aka Go Yama. I came across Go Yama’s incredible cover of Flying Lotus’ “Putty Boy Strut” a couple months ago and found myself listening to it over and over and over. This feature came directly out of my obsession with this song.

I’m always hunting around on Soundcloud for up and coming artists, and producers. If you would like to nominate yourself or someone else for a feature like this, please share a link to a Soundcloud page in the comments! Listen to the mix and read the full interview below.

Video of the Day: Morphogenetic Freehand Etchings By Artist John Franzen

john-franzen-breath-09

A couple years ago I posted about artist John Franzen’s “Each Line One Breath” – morphogenetic freehand drawings. In the years since he has begun drawing into 2mm black coated copper and brass plates with a needle, creating gorgeous etchings, from which he produces a small series of discharge prints.

His meditative drawing process starts a single straight line from the top of the plate to the bottom, which is followed by an attempt to copy that line as precisely as possible. Each subsequent line results in a slight straying from the original line, exaggerating the original imperfections. His breathing controls the line, and the line also controls his breathing, it is incredible to watch. See the videos below.
