James Paterson

I said in the previous post Evgeny Kiselev’s illustrations reminded me of James Paterson’s work (which I hadn’t looked at for some time) but I just realised the work on his site right now isn’t really the work I was referring to. This video is more representative of the work that immediately jumped to mind when I first looked at Kiselev’s stuff.

Paterson really became known for his brain hemorrhage inducing flash animations which were often set to the amazing music of K-rad.

Radiohead – Reckoner Diplo Remix

Diplo remixed Reckoner, you can too. After the smashing success of all the fan remixes of Nude, Radiohead has made all the instrumental elements of Reckoner available for download. To kick things off Radiohead got Diplo (genius behind M.I.A’s album, Arular) to officially remix the track.

If you’ve been to Radiohead Remix then you already know the drill – make a remix, upload, vote. Listen to Diplo’s handiwork here: Reckoner (DIPLO remix)

Aaron Noble

I posted about Aaron Noble back in April and was happy to read an email from him recently, letting me know he just updated his website. If I could have any artist paint me a giant mural today, it’d be a toss-up between him and Anthony Lister. I could stare at this stuff all day.

Russ Mills

Great mixed media work by illustrator Russ Mills. Kinda like Ian Francis with a sprinkle of Jackson Pollock (I never knew about this site! I could waste so much time here). Love this stuff.

VoIP phone made of wood!

Now you can Skype in style! This is the world’s first VoIP phone made of wood! Two years ago HULGER launched the ZIRICOTE concept design made from an African wood to huge acclaim and this month they debuted the finished PAPPA phone, with a design more suited to production. It is handcrafted from a sustainable American walnut, in Montreal Canada, by a company called Furni. Below is the ZIRICOTE and hit “more” to see several shots of the PAPPA.

Marlon Kowalski

Found some work by Marlon Kowalski and I have absolutely zero information about him. I really like a series on his site where he takes coloured plates and sticks them in places, and photographs them. Like this little red plate below, it’s actually tied to the branches of the tree!

Ye Rin Mok

I recently discovered the photography of Ye Rin Mok, who has shot for the likes of Anthen, Nylon, Tokion, Theme, Spin, Monocle, and the list really does go on. Looking through Mok’s portfolio I discovered a large number of the photos in which the subject is actually facing away from the camera. I found the gallery jarring, and really quite powerful.

I took a class in art school called Vision, Perception and Science and we learned that there is a little sensor in the brain that is constantly looking for faces. This is why the bumper and headlights on a car look like a smiling face, and also why there is such tension in these photos. There are no faces in these portraits. Read More
