MyBlockNYC is a cool interactive map of New York where users can upload geographically-tagged videos or “video tours.” Here is a video uploaded by a user from Brooklyn; it’s the sound that haunts my dreams.
Riusuke Fukahori uses incredibly precise painting techniques to create 3-dimensional fish using meticulous layers of paint and resin. Breathtaking stuff. | via This is Colossal (with more pics + video)
Visiting MASS MoCA is quite a memorable experience. The site of the museum lends itself well (and maybe exclusively) to large-scale installations. This work by Katharina Grosse (One Floor Up More Highly, on display through October) is wondrous and mesmerizing. | via We Find Wildness
I don’t know much about artist/designer/printmaker Nathaniel Russell. I just stumbled onto his blog from a facebook link and found these flyers. They look like a sketchbook/self-motivated thing, but you can see more of his personal work on his site.
Seemingly quiet for most of 2010, B’L’ing is a traveling trading post that screens and exchanges bootleg video art and rare media. This is their “RGB Poster,” composed of several colorful film stills. Also love these BL’ing alternative movie posters by Amy Yao.
