The goal of a puzzle is to fit each piece correctly together to form a picture. Brazilian artist Vik Muniz takes a bit of a different method with the same, if not more beautiful, result. Muniz uses unconventional mediums for his work, from garbage to puzzle pieces to create his pieces. In “Gordian Puzzles,” hundreds of […]

Lone (Star) Prada

On the outskirts of The Lone Star State near Marfa, Texas, lies a stretch of lone highway, miles of flat land for days, and the lonliest Prada store ever. Since 2005, a Prada building has stood alone, with a non-functioning door, sans customers and sales people, in the middle of nowhere houseing only 20 left-foot heels and six handbags that were chosen from the […]

Piresian Beach- Waisting Away

I don’t know what this is, but I like it! Fuzzy, psyched out, and completely danceable. These Hungarian cats call themselves Piresian Beach and they make lo-fi, shoe-gazy, mood music with a female vocalist that drones and moans in just the right way. I doubt this is a offical video, but I like it none the less, […]

Rad Omen- Search Party & Destroy

Who are Rad Omen? Hiding behind the faces of our most beloved fast-food mascots, Rad Omen refuses to be seen as individual, but instead as the anthropomorphic representation of the party massive itself. Rad Omen is not one for they are many. Their mission is a clear one: Search, Party, & Destroy. And, they want you […]

The tech savvy video uses the emerging web standards of HTML5 to deliver a complex and highly interactive experience to help personalize the sense of nostalgia inherent in […]

John Gettings

The moment as a 9-year-old boy when John Gettings discovered his father’s stash of Playboy magazines in a locked chest in their attic, is the moment that shaped him as a photographer and was also the inspiration for his Polaroid series. From that moment in the 60’s, not only did his love for women (obviously) form, but his […]

Ashes to Ashes

Ashes to ashes, dust to… vinyl? Hardcore music lovers live and die music. Now, they can literally die music… or die on music… or something like that. UK company And Vinyly is offering people the chance to press their ashes into a vinyl recording of their own voice, their favorite tunes or their last will and testament. […]


Etsy user LowLevel‘s work is simple: “All stencils are handmade. I use spray paint.” But the series of posters he creates are anything but simple, not because the technique is complex, but the subjects he paints are. Each poster features a historical icon – from the Dic of all dictators Fidel Castro, literary iconoclast Jack Kerouac, blue-eyed crooner Frank Sinatra and many more.
