Talking Trees

Posted on 14 February 2012

German artist Bartholomäus Traubeck recently debuted a record-player he developed which is capable of digitally reading the rings of tree-slices and translating them into piano music. Tree-rings, are annual records of a tree’s growth rate — which in turn offer clues to the hardships and fruitful periods experienced over the life of the tree. YEARS [...] Continue Reading

Charles Krafft – This ain’t yo momma’s porcelain!

Posted on 14 February 2012

Really fantastic work by artist Charles Kraft … I could write more, but these pictures really speak for themselves. I’ll try anyway. There’s something about taking an idea so loaded, like a gun (pun intended) and making it out of such a fragile material like porcelain that … well, ask yourself what it means? Kraft [...] Continue Reading

What does the internet look like?

Posted on 06 February 2012

In the process of trying to find out more information about a BUND Reel to Reel “Black Box”, I suddenly found myself on a completely random blog page looking at images and reading information about topics that weren’t even loosely related to my initial search. This probably happens to everyone. I read somewhere recently that [...] Continue Reading

Clayton Brothers

Posted on 06 February 2012

I discovered the Clayton Brothers by pure coincidence. A few years ago I happened to be at Chicago’s most intimate bar, the Matchbox. On that particular day I happened to be sitting next to graphic designer Monty Beauchamp. As he often does, he had with him a few copies of his magazine BLAB. I purchased [...] Continue Reading

Posted on 06 February 2012

The Date Farmers continue to blur the lines between high and low art. Their work is socially powerful, culturally relevant, yet emerged in an outsider art aesthetic. When I look at their pieces, I see letters from county jail, home-made tattoos, urban decay, and Latino identity reconstructed in a elegantly beautiful and critical way. My [...] Continue Reading

While age doesn’t always indicate quality, I would say that as a general rule they are directly proportional. Of course, if something vintage hasn’t been maintained properly (i.e. rust, battery corrosion) then that proportion changes inversely. But I guarantee that most well made older products with the proper amount of maintenance blow 90% of anything [...] Continue Reading
