Artist Profile: “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate” by Mike Popso


Great portrait of artist Doze Green by my buddy, Detroit-based filmmaker, Mike Popso. I’ve been a fan of Doze for a long time; his artwork was the reason I blind-bought albums like Deeper Concentration 2 in high school. A lot has changed since then! For the last five years he’s been living and working on a self-sufficient farm in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

In “Doze Green Arklandia Dreamstate,” Popso captures the vibrancy of Green’s new life and new work. His upcoming show at the Openspace gallery in Paris opens November 20th and runs until December 20th. Watch the video profile below!

Incredible Full-Scale 1979 Lincoln Continental Made of Cardboard by Artist Shannon Goff


“Miles to Empty” is Shannon Goff’s homage to her grandfather’s special edition, collector’s series, 1979 Lincoln Continental Mark V. While her grandfather’s car was metallic turquoise and white vinyl, Goff’s rendition is all white and made entirely of cardboard! The artist described the piece to us as:

“a 3D contour drawing inflated into space. This car is wrapped up in both personal and political histories.  It is a critique on American society’s obsession with convenience, luxury and autonomy.”

Abandoned Detroit Duplex Filled with 36,000 Flowers


Floral designer Lisa Waud bought an abandoned house in Detroit, Michigan for $250 and, with the help of 3 dozen fellow florists, replaced the garbage that once filled it with 36,000 flowers.

The project took a year to plan but was only on display for three days. Aside from the artistic appeal, the temporary installation was part of a broader desire to raise awareness around issues of sustainability and the repurposing of neglected properties in the area. See more images below!
