Georgie James on NPR Project Song [Dec. 27th, 2007|01:08 pm]
Know Art: Sharing the work of Artists

I was looking through the free video podcasts on iTunes one day and came across an NPR music podcast. They have a show called 'Project Song'. The first episode I have watched just really impressed me. The idea is that they select a musical group or band or artist and they provide them with a series of phrases and pictures. They have to pick one of each and write and record a song in two days based on them. The group in this episode was 'Georgie James' whom I just really loved and may try to interview at a later date for Studioloo Magazine (coming Jan 2008 - will announce more later). Anyhow, the creative process is fantastic. I really suggest you check this out.

The phrase they selected was 'Something Joyful' and the picture was this old pile of books in the middle of a room.

You can see the videos here - I suggest watching the whole 'Two days in the Studio with Georgie James' video but if you are short on time - check out their finished song video. It's really lovely.

Tampon Chandelier [Sep. 12th, 2007|10:19 am]

Pictured is the chandelier hanging in the Arsenale during the 2005 Venice Beinalle. The work is called 'The Bride' by the Portuguese artist Joana Vasconcelos. And this chandelier turns out to be made out of 14,000 shiny wrapped tampons.

Among a series of other issues, at the 2005 Beinalle, there was mass media concern that there was over feminisation of the event. There is further discussion and document of this at the source: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4111376.stm

Metal Artist - H. Keith Wagner [Jul. 10th, 2007|09:19 am]

I came across this artist today and really fell in love with the metal orbs he constructs - amazing! Take a look at more of his work here: http://hkeithwagner.com/





"As a landscape architect and metal artist, I was inspired by the agrarian landscape of my childhood, my father's passion for industrial design and fabrication, and a life-long love of minimalism . I began using my artistic expressions as a release from the conventions of my design practice, exploring abstract painting, two-dimensional collages and metal assemblage as part of the design process for specific projects. What originated as a hands-on testing ground for my interest in the properties of materials has evolved into a simple love for creating art. I draw inspiration from the pure abstraction of the visual world into the repetition of objects, order of grids, and textures. The layering and composition of these elements is expressed in my artwork" H. Keith Wagner
