bombay beach

Posted on | November 2, 2011 | No Comments

beautifully filmed and photographed documentary about a group of people from a community in california called bombay beach, right at the salton sea. “ Director Alma Har’el was born in Tel Aviv, where she began her film career as a video artist, mixing live video content for music concerts around Europe. After moving to the US she established herself as music video director, creating several critically acclaimed videos. Her work with Zach Condon and the band Beirut resulted in the award winning music video for their single “Elephant Gun” which earned her a VMA nomination for best directorial debut.”

riot police and a kissing couple

Posted on | June 18, 2011 | No Comments

it looks like a montage or fake image but it’s not. richard lam, a photographer who was in vancouver to document the riots happening after the NFL 2011 finals for getty images, took this once in a lifetime shot.

as riot police spreads out in all directions, this couple, seemingly uninterested in what unfolds around them, kisses each other lying on the street.

while it seems like that kiss was an act of love demonstrating against the aggressive police behavior it turns out that the girl was separated from her boyfriend in the chaos of the moment and was run over by the police that left her injured on the ground. after the scene cleared up the boyfriend rushed over and comforted her. that’s when richard lam hit the trigger and captured the image below.

konstruct sculpture app

Posted on | May 26, 2011 | No Comments

interesting augmented reality art/sculpture app done by james alliban. your voice or any sounds and noise lets you create 3 dimensional objects within a given setting. obviously this wasn’t done with any specific purpose in mind other then exploring the possibilities of AR but it’s interesting to think about how this could be translated into the commercial space.


the underwater project · alex tipple

Posted on | May 4, 2011 | No Comments

“Australian photographer Alex Tipple regularly gets beaten in the head with his 5kg underwater camera but with shots like this one, it’s definitely worth it. He captures split second, stunning images of swimmers and surfers emerging underwater just off the Australian coast.

The 29 year-old captures the precise moment a wave breaks and surfers are drawn under, resulting in images of stunning clarity with an interesting twist on abstract photography. Tipple decided to shoot these kind of images after becoming frustrated with “normal” surf photography.” (

RGB wallpaper

Posted on | April 10, 2011 | No Comments

carnovsky, the milan based collecitve created RGB, a series of wallpapers that surprisingly mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. RGB is about the exploration of the “surface’s deepness”. RGB’s technique consists in the overlapping of three different images, each one in a primary color. the resulting images from this three level’s superimposition are unexpected and disorienting. the colors mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear.

the dark side of the lens

Posted on | October 2, 2010 | No Comments

“… Something that offers insight into what it takes to grind out a living as a water-based photographer in the surfing industry: a short experimental glimpse at a life lived in the shadow of obsessive photographic pursuits.”

Mickey Smith worked with Allan Wilson from the Astray Collective, who acted as Director of Photography on the project. Together they logged hours of footage across the Atlantic coastline, traveling around Ireland, Cornwall and Manchester. Shot in Super 16mm film, as well as groundbreaking work with Canon 5D mk11 Digital SLR, Smith also projected images of the huge walls of water within which he works, on to monster urban landscapes such as sky rises and castles in Manchester, as well as the cliff lines at his home of Ireland.”
