“Lucid Stead” is an installation by artist Phillip K. Smith III, near Joshua Tree, in the California desert. The piece is about the pace of the desert itself, utilizing reflected and projected light.

I don’t think I’ve seen a video that better captures the adventure of being a kid. Zenga Bros directed this beauty for Saintseneca and it’s powerful because it’s made from years of their own personal footage. You don’t need the latest cameras you just need to make work about things you know. One of my favourites of the year.

The full length Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2013 video has arrived! It’s kinda devastating to watch this sunny footage in the dead of winter but at least it will heat your face.
It’s kinda wild to think about the amount of art that has been produced in this one small area of Honolulu over the last few years. An artless area of the city has been completely transformed into a mecca for public art. This is my favourite art event every year and the really exciting thing is my friends have plans to bring this event to other cities now, so this is only the beginning.
If you missed it, I shared most of the 2013 murals in a giant blog post here. Enjoy the video below!
i-D has produced an interesting film on the way technology is transforming the fashion industry. Supermodel Coco Rocha (who actually went to the same high school as me), Natalie Massenet, Alistair McKimm, threeASFOUR, and OKFocus discuss multimedia catwalks, wearable tech, and the use of 3D printing to make clothing.
Wouldn’t it be cool if you could download a pattern for a shirt and print it off at home? That day may not be far off!

“My Chemical Romance”
These images by Korean artist Jee Young Lee win the award for most elaborate self-portraits created without any digital manipulation. The artist spends several weeks at a time transforming her studio space into these incredible sets inspired by events from her life or Korean fables.
Jee Young Lee is the designer, performer, and photographer. She does everything! I do find it a bit sad though, that after all her hard work we can only experience these as flat images.
See lots more images of her work below!
