  1. In July 2016, MoMA PS1 invited artist Katharina Grosse to transform a decaying former military building at Fort Tilden, Queens, into a monumental, sublime artwork using a specialized technique to spray brightly colored paint directly onto the structure. Grosse’s approach highlights the potential of painting as a medium, and encapsulates the stark beauty of this manmade structure and its natural surroundings.

  3. Satellite Collections
    digital prints

    You can see from pole to pole and across oceans and continents and you can watch it turn and there's no strings holding it up, and it's moving in a blackness that is almost beyond conception.
    -Eugene Cernan, an astronaut on the Apollo 17, on seeing the Earth from space

    In all of these prints, I collect things that I've cut out from Google Satellite View-- parking lots, silos, landfills, waste ponds. The view from a satellite is not a human one, nor is it one we were ever really meant to see. But it is precisely from this inhuman point of view that we are able to read our own humanity, in all of its tiny, repetitive marks upon the face of the earth. From this view, the lines that make up basketball courts and the scattered blue rectangles of swimming pools become like hieroglyphs that say: people were here.

    The alienation provided by the satellite perspective reveals the things we take for granted to be strange, even absurd. Banal structures and locations can appear fantastical and newly intricate. Directing curiosity toward our own inimitably human landscape, we may find that those things that are most recognizably human (a tangle of carefully engineered water slides, for example) are also the most bizarre, the most unlikely, the most fragile.

  6. Amongst the many freely available pieces of art released by Getty are a number of quite famous images, including work by Claude Monet, Vincent van Gogh, Rembrandt, and Leonardo da Vinci.  The 4,600 pieces of artwork available are just the beginning, as well. Getty says that it's actively exploring the possibility of releasing much more art into the public domain, both from the museum's collection as well as materials from the Getty Research Institute's special collections. While Getty isn't the first museum to push forward with an open artwork initiative (the museum cited a number of institutions like the Walters Art Museum as inspirations for the movement), it's the latest example of how the internet is making classic, famous works more accessible.

  9. Andrew Healy aka virtualsurface turns famous photo into large dithered glitch cross-stitch:

    Counted cross stitch on 14ct black aida, Wooden frame (42x39 cm).

    This image of Rhianna’s bruised face is a glitch in itself - perhaps a view into the flesh-and-bones reality that exists behind a celebrity’s polished surface.

  12. Actuellement, Jean-François Lahos travaille à partir de ce qu'il nomme la mythopologie. À la manière dont on imagine des personnages et/ou scénarios en contemplant les nuages (paréidolie), les dessins offerts par le déploiement de polyèdres semblent nous dévoiler une mythologie inhérente à chaque objet. En étudiant intensivement le dépliage dans le but de créer des sculptures, l'artiste a observé qu’une multitude de patrons de découpe est disponible pour un seul volume. Ces derniers donnent souvent l’impression de former des familles d’entités dignes des constellations. Dans cette veine, en créant des dépliages de bois et/ou de métal, l'artiste souhaite créer une expérience captivante où l’imagination sera stimulée à la manière d’un test de Rorschach : ces images abstraites utilisées en psychologie. L’observateur a ainsi un accès intime à la genèse d’objets tel un archéologue dans un univers de polyèdres.

  13. Klopfenstein's current artistic work involves the creation of tapestries and sculptural fiber work that reflects political/social concerns. She draws upon the richness of fiber art, decoration and traditional American craft techniques as a timeless means of cultural expression. Her works also reflect a dark humor-- Carpet Bombs, Macramé Machine Guns, Freedom Rugs. Karley Klopfenstein's work embodies many contradictions: the individual hand vs. mass production, beauty and destruction, male and female, domestic and foreign, occupation under the auspice of "freedom". By using labor-intensive craft techniques to create and decorate military weapons, she makes a statement about the pervasiveness of war in our everyday, domestic lives.

  15. My most recent sculptural installations are constructed with discarded electronic materials: computer, telephone and electric cables, thousands of burnt-out bulbs, meters of videotape, old slot machines, celluloid, DVDs, etc. The installations explore the short life expectancy of the technologies we cast off and their relationship to organic mortality.
    These installations also seek to reanimate the lifeless. Light animations projected onto the installations appear to free the energy stored in the electronic waste, awakening in it memories of its past.

    Through my work I try to bring dead materials back to life, reveal their secrets, revive the collective memory they contain to construct an accurate portrait of a society and an age.
