Blog Beauties 1

She is already in my "I LIKE" list but here's a special link to artist / curator / writer Gabriella Gomez Mont's Toxico Blog. Beautiful, disturbing imagery - otherness, again and again. This is a zootrope animation still from the 1990s, which she found.

Edith Dekyndt is a Belgian artist. You can find out about her research for subjectivity here.
Look for XY02 - the film with the hands and the loop of string. A handful of magic.

Bidoun is a magazine for art from the Middle East. Its discourse and aesthetics are like a great coffee in the morning. You don't want anything else, for a moment. This image is from the Revolution by Design article in the last issue.

From time to time I stumble upon a project that I become REALLY jealous of.
The surrender of Reynard The Fox by Leonard van Munster is one of those. 

The "Tops" film installation by Miguel Angel Rios is a brilliantly choreographed metaphor of relationships between the world, things and people, and the tensions they create. You can watch fragments of the films via Evo Gallery here.

My research for I DON'T KNOW WHERE I'M GOING BUT I WANT TO BE THERE led me into a web of (graphic) design initiatives worth mentioning. Here's a first selection. 

‘Arc en ciel’ by emilie faif & les amis'' by arnold goron, 2009 (stoneware, stone, paint, wood, fymo, bone), other works by Faif and Goron can be viewed via Soledad gallery in Amsterdam.

From the Dezeen archives: " Hong Kong artist Kacey Wong has created a tiny floating house as part of the Hong Kong & Shenzhen bi-city Biennale of Urbanism/Architecture."

About his Pushpin Calendar, Japanese designer Ryohei Yoshiyuki writes: When you put paper on the wall with this, you can make your own calander with paper of your memory. 2006 July. Ryohei keeps a diary with his dog in the main role, loyally by his side throughout his work.
