JR and Darren Aronofsky’s Silent Protest in Paris

thestandingmarch

French artist JR and acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky unveiled their collaborative project, The Standing March, on November 29th and 30th in Paris. While the city has banned protests for security reasons after the recent terrorist attacks, the images of over 500 people were projected onto the Assemblée Nationale building as a form of silent protest related to the United Nations conference on climate change. The piece, which also features music from 3D (of Massive Attack), will tour from December 1-7, at various locations. Watch the short video feature (directed by Vincent Lorca) below!

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

dozegreen

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!
