STONEMILKER

Grammys are coming up, so a homage to Björk’s nominated Vulnicura. This is the quintessential Björk fantasy drawn in mythical aesthetic. Use your mouse or WASD to rotate the 360 degree video.

TWO WRONG DON’T ALWAYS

It’s that time of year again. Glad to see digital biennale The Wrong has pushed through in its second year. Look through its digital pavilions and list of irl sites to access. More than 1000 artists, all free art.

Photographers Need Not Apply

It’s coming for all of us, that 365-day weekend (see video below), but if you’re a fashion photographer and the kids decide to follow Daria’s lead (again), you can pretty much put your feet up now and take it easy.

discoverness, freedoming, sharehood

Pulling off yet another genius move, Father John Misty just announced his very own (and crap-sounding) SAP – Streamline Audio Protocol: “I am pleased to introduce SAP, a new signal-to-audio process by which popular albums are “sapped” of their performances, original vocal, atmosphere and other distracting affectations so the consumer can decide quickly and efficiently [...]

MOCKED CRIMES

In the (post)digital era, our notion of time and ‘event’ is contradictory. As we all know, the heinous crimes of extremist group ISIS are devastating… The videos they publish online make the evil act, create a new ‘now’. The more we watch the videos, the more people they kill digitally – the event of death [...]

METAMORPHOSE

The unexpected encounter with the demon Humbaba – the guard of Cedar Forest whose intestines are on his face – from the epic of Gılgamesh triggers one to think about our perception of body, the Zeitgeist and the representations in various cultures… Nowadays, the notion of body is in a vigorous metamorphose with the digitization, [...]

THAT’S ENTERTAINMENT

I’m sure that you’re sick of hearing about Ryan Trecartin–he’s kind of everywhere at the moment. Deemed by The New Yorker’s Peter Schjeldahl as “the most consequential artist to have emerged since the nineteen-eighties,” Trecartin anticipated and formed the decadently glitchy A(DHD)esthetic of the Youtube and Vine generation before it had even undergone puberty. I admit exasperation [...]

HYPED UP?

I’m sure you’ve all heard already: Hyperlapse, the new app from Instragram that can replicate “[w]hat was once only possible with a Steadicam or a $15,000 tracking rig is now possible on your iPhone, for free.” As in the case of DSLRS, smartphone cameras, and–of course–Instagram, Hyperlapse represents the latest in innovations reducing cost and [...]

SOMEBODY

It’s kind of typical of Miranda July to announce that she is currently working on her first novel, but what she’ll come around with is a messaging app instead. This lady is all over the place, one might think, and is there anything she hasn’t done yet? But of course there is this unmistakable charm [...]
