Daniel Rozin is an Associate Art Professor at ITP Tisch School of the Arts, NYU, and as an artist he is perhaps best known for his ongoing series of ‘mechanical mirrors’. I’ve been fascinated by his work for several years now so it was a treat to get to ask him some questions about the things he makes. Have a look at a video of some of his works as well as a short interview below.
Another fantastic profile in the InFrame series. This instalment focuses on Zun Lee who initially took up photography as a hobby and escape from the stresses of his corporate job only to start taking pictures of strangers on the street, uncovering a whole new way of connecting with people. Watch the full video on Booooooom TV.
One of my favourite video channels is the New York Times series Anatomy of a Scene, in which directors narrate a sequence of their film. In this episode director Alejandro G. Inarritu discusses making the viewers feel trapped. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
You’ve probably seen Bendik Kaltenborn’s work in places like The New Yorker or Todd Terje’s album covers. Or perhaps you’re already an avid fan of his shenanigans with the Dongery comic collective. Either way you should be excited to know that Kaltenborn’s latest collection of random gags and comics, Adult Contemporary, is now available in English. Thanks to Drawn & Quarterly we have a copy to give away!
Kaltenborn was also nice enough to answer some questions about his process, the things he hates and those that keep him happy. Read the full interview below. And, in the spirit of the book’s title (inspired by the term for cheesy, ballad-heavy easy listening) leave your favourite dad joke in the comments section for your chance to win!
Really great interview by Bobby Hundreds with co-creator of the Back to the Future trilogy, Bob Gale. Gale shares some alternative storylines that never got past the script phase as well as insight into how he approached the design of 2015. Definitely a timely must-watch for Back to the Future fans as we’ve finally caught up to the future date of October 21, 2015 date shown in the movie! Check out the full interview below!
The official trailer for Daft Punk Unchained, the first-ever documentary on the elusive duo, has been released! The film, directed by Hervé Martin Delpierre, features interviews with many of their friends and collaborators including: Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers, Giorgio Moroder, and Michel Gondry.
Most of the footage in the trailer of Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo appears to be archival clips but the shot at the end seems to suggest we’ll get to see them with their helmets off (I doubt it). Daft Punk Unchained will premiere June 24th on Canal+ in France.
Watch the official trailer for Daft Punk Unchained below.
