Hello Darling It's Me, Your Weekly Revelations

Fundación Mapfre It’s reassuring to remember that avant-garde photography did not begin with that time that we applied the ‘Toaster” filter to our Instagram from the beach at Saint-Tropez (damn we looked trendy tho). Alvin Langdon Coburn began doing incredible things with film at the end of the 19th century. The photograph above comes from 1914. A Coburn retrospective is […]

Many a Little Makes a Mickle

We tend to think of technology as part and parcel of the digital age, but in its most basic form, technology is simply a matter of tools, machines, and processes. In interdisciplinary artist Jill Magid’s methodology, closed-circuit surveillance cameras and the Internet certainly represent technology—but so do oil paints and print magazines. That’s because Magid thinks of technologies as systems […]

Experience is an Arch, To Build Upon

What is the most exciting part of your job? “The most exciting part is all in your head.” This is how my conversation with Clive Wilkinson ends. Without knowing I’d be interviewing him a few weeks later, I had actually met the South African-born architect at a party. He stood stout, upright in front of me, and spoke tenderly but […]

You Begin with the Possibilities of the Material

The Death and Resurrection of LACMA's Art & Technology Program

Art and technology are indelibly linked, both strictly man-made ideas, both lending to the other through history. The cave paintings couldn’t have been created without first crushing a pigment with a hand-sized rock and adding a binding agent, usually spit or fat. Simple by our standards but only discovered through trial and error, and human observation. In 1967, Maurice Tuchman, […]

Overwhelmed Is the Calmest I Get

Body by Body is the collaboration of Californian Fine Arts graduates Cameron Soren and Melissa Sachs. Their work melds kitsch pop culture with psychedelics, repurposed graphics, crude computer generated imagery, and scrawling street art, then tangles these formats into a wide variety of audio, visual, and structural mediums. They embrace and revel in bad taste, with works in a variety […]

Trapped by Analysis to the Point of Paralysis

Artist Statement My initial attraction is to dysfunctional situations, when an object becomes alienated and a sense of standstill is achieved, as a consequence the images are trapped in the liminal space, always in-between. This is similar to the effect of a neverending loop. Each work is a result of an accident, something beautiful that was spoiled, and when the […]

Best Friends Forever And 3ver And Ever—or BFFA3AE—are an art collective, composed of two BFFs, Daniel Chew and Micaela Durand, who met while in film school and, naturally, started a blog. Their work can be classified as “meta-net” or “post-internet,” existing in a time where everything is only a few clicks away from becoming a meme of itself. The duo […]
