James Ostrer Ego System

MEAT THE CELEBRITIES

Previously mentioned in my post here, James Ostrer is now back with a new series of work featuring meat and celebrities and of course with his signature on it. In his latest body of work The Ego System, Ostrer is seeking to challenge the idea that our modern icons and the very concept of celebrity isn’t what it […]

ILLUSTRATED PEOPLE

A sunburn is never a pleasant thing, not for French artist Thomas Mailaender at least. In this publication titled ‘Illustrated People’, Mailaender applied 23 original negatives from the archive of modern conflict’s collection onto the skin of models, before projecting a powerful UV lamp over them. The result reveals a fleeting picture on the skin’s surface, […]

EARTHCAKE

As we draw closer to the end of the Jubilee Weekend where we celebrate the nation’s 50th birthday, I felt necessary to share this piece of public art I came across at Promenade Station, Downtown Line (coincidentally on a Jubilee Weekend). Earthcake examines the geology and tradition of Singapore by zooming into the layers of cultural […]

V

Iceland-based multimedia artist, Philip Ob Rey, uses discarded VHS tapes to create haunting creatures that wander frozen landscapes. Night forbade by a sunray. Not a bird to be heard, not a herd of grass to clench, no vengeful sun to pray. Mysterious, mesmerizing, onilyrical, the V monoliths, somber giants built by Phillip Ob Rey, shaped […]

SNOWFLAKES OF SEX

*NSFW Rebecca Cooper creates kaleidoscopic arrangements of pornographic images, abstracted and spiraling in mandalas of lust, pleasure and hedonism. The infinite circle of skin is then put on display as huge wall installations, like a celebration of love. Given such unusual material to work with, especially one with so much skin and exposure, Cooper’s work could […]

DUST. ANYBODY? NO? DUST.

Cover Image (L to R): Dust #03 Bed Articles Store, Dust #68 Fine Art Photo Gallery Yeap, that’s the infamous phrase by one of the characters in Little Britain, a comedy series in UK. Dust isn’t always grey like we often see. There are varieties and is this array of colours and content that inspired photographer Klaus […]

BAU

Takashi Suzuki was intrigued by a very unique material. Something that I don’t even see as having any potential of becoming something worthwhile (and I consider myself seeing the beauty in unconventional). Dishwashing sponges is what Suzuki is intrigued by. He explains that this is because of the texture, colour and variety of form and kind that inspire […]

HUMAN PLAID

At a glance, one might think the plaid tapestries of Zhang Bojun is just another textile art but upon further inspection, its rather surprising to see spots of human existence. In fact, for the past seven years, Zhang has been photographing passer-bys on his daily walks. Over time, he digitally edited these photos, weaving them into […]

FROZEN

This is not a post about the Disney animated cartoon that got all the girls ranged from 4 to 20 raving about Elsa and singing to each other about building snowmen. Someone please tell me what is this sorcery. As we wait for that answer that might not even come to us, we take a […]

THE SILVER SURFER

Here’s a refreshing take on surfer / surfing photos. Think no more about the sandy beaches or epic warm waters, instead be a penguin. Literally. Chris Burkard is a photographer based in Central Coast, California. He captures lifestyle and action sports, and some of his most compelling works are these pictures of people surfing among the […]

SLOW LIFE

Time lapse cinematography reveals a whole different world full of hypnotic motion and my idea was to make coral reef life more spectacular and thus closer to our awareness. I had a bigger picture in my mind for my clip. But after many months of processing hundreds of thousands of photos and trying to capture […]

BLURRING THE BOUNDARIES

“My aim is to create each and every project in both worlds. Material world or not is less important. In the case of most projects, the conceptual strength will remain exactly the same and the spectators will experience just a minimal change in their mental perception. Of course there is, in a certain way, a […]
