Split Second!

The Morning News recently featured the excellent work of Barbara Probst. In her series “Split Second”, Probst utilizes multiple cameras to capture the same exact second from different viewpoints. She is interested in the authority given to a lone photograph versus the idea that there isn’t just one reliable representation of a particular moment. “What happened” is open for interpretation.

I love the exact details each diptych or triptych is given.

Mike Hunter

Take one look at Mike Hunter’s photography and try to tell me his miniatures don’t look insanely real. Well, you’d be half right. Hunter hasn’t mastered the skill of creating life-like miniatures, he has mastered the skill of capturing a real-life place and creating the illusion that it is a miniature. I’ll let you take a minute to re-read that sentence. Was that the sound of your mind exploding?

What you are looking at is a real place. Those “figurines” are actually actors dressed as toy soldiers (complete with fake stands their feet). Hunter utilizes a miniaturizing technique called “tilt shift photography” and selects locations based on their “already artificial quality”.

New Pigeon John!

Last week my good buddy Pigeon John had a show here in Vancouver. He put me and a friend on the guestlist so I thought I’d return the favour by taping the show and putting it on the net. Here’s some highlights from the show, which includes a new song called “So Gangster” (Booooooom! Exclusive!)

Sometimes I hear people hating on him because he’s too silly or he’s joking around or whatever but you people need to lighten UP. You’ll see in the clip he does this “Pigeon Dance” where he is clapping like a fool, and he does that kind of stuff to really humble himself on stage – so he knows that he’s always out there giving it all he’s got (I’ve heard him talk about it). He’s got no ego. This is what performing should be about.

Make sure you get out and see him live! Sorry about my filming, I was getting my dance on and trying to shoot at the same time.
