Baroque.me visualizes the first Prelude from Bach’s Cello Suites. Using the math behind string length and pitch, it came from a simple idea: what if all the notes were drawn as strings? Instead of a stream of classical notation on a page, this interactive project highlights the music’s underlying structure and subtle shifts.” —Alexander Chen

“All of my collages are composed by hand — cut from books I’ve been collecting for years, and painstakingly pieced together as seamlessly as possible. They create themselves through a process beginning with a loose concept, followed by a series of trials and errors, subtle maneuvers, selection/elimination, harmonious unions, and happy accidents. It is a meditative process, and there is a lot of decision-making behind each element involved.

My general intent, throughout all my work, is to portray the world as a flawed thing of beauty — a place that shines brightly, but has a dark side to match.”

The Special Danger

03 October 2011

In The Special Danger Givan Lötz draws attention to conflated notions of Death, Sex, and Spirituality. Owing to a philosophical reading of the Ecstatic Experience, Lötz measures the ethics of Eroticism up against the aesthetics of Prohibition, suggesting a form of reasoning without boundaries. From Lötz’s perspective, without Prohibition there can be no transgression and therefore no Eroticism.

The ubiquitous relationship between proximity and promiscuity in relation to Eroticism and Prohibition is unpacked in The Special Danger, manifested in four interrelated pictorial concepts pertaining to birth, Sex, and Death. A fifth central sculptural concept is included and given the tentative and simultaneous role of the overseer and offender, also acting as an anchoring agent for the display of the entire narrative. In all, the five concepts include: The Ecstatic Experience, Death & Danger, Sex Death, Eroticism & Perversion, and Sacred Boundaries & Transgression.

Toilet Paper Magazine

28 September 2011

Toiletpaper Magazine is a new collaboration between artist Maurizio Cattelan and photographer Pierpaolo Ferrari, both of whom live and work between Milan and New York City. It is a “new generation magazine that combines commercial photography, twisted narratives and surrealistic imaginary to create a series of powerful visual tableaux”.

I’m also loving the amazing, italian music legend Lorenzo “Jovanotti” Cherubini (one of my personal favorites) in several of their videos.
