Ellis Island, in Upper New York Bay, was the gateway for over 12 million immigrants to the United States as the nation's busiest immigrant inspection station for over sixty years from 1892 until 1954. Photographer Flora Borsi was shocked by the fact about 3500 people lost their lifes on Island while waiting and hoping for an opportunity for a new life. So she created a project "The Forgotten Dream" to remember all that hopes and fears
From sensory overload to sensory deprivation, "Huit phases de l’illumination" (Palais de Tokyo, Pairs, 2015) is a collaborative mixed-reality audio-visual experiment created by artist Aramique. Eight physical installations function as a conduit into eight infinite virtual realities. Using abstractions of time, space, sound, colour, form, depth and speed to manipulate the audience's sense of self and connection to the to the present moment we create a forced enlightenment that disconnects the audience from their physical bodies and lets them be one with the virtual universe.
Created by Seoul based duo Kimchi and Chips, The Light Barrier Third Edition is the latest and largest in the series of works by the studio to create volumetric drawings in the air using hundreds of calibrated video projections.
The installations present a semi-material mode of existence, materialising objects from light. The third edition continues to exploit the confusion and non-conformities at the boundary between materials and non-materials, reality and illusion, and existence and absence. The viewer is presented with a surreal vision that advances the human instinct of duration and space. The name refers to the light barrier in relativistic physics, which separates things that are material from things that are light, and since 1983 has been used to specify the exact meaning of the metric system of spatial measure.

The Summer after 10th grade Mike spent two solid weeks with horrible horrible migraines, dizziness, blind spots and tunnel vision—he didn’t know what it was… This is the story of his Coke Habit.
Bordeaux-based artist Juliette Clovis is back soon after her latest "Porcelain Eggs" series with new 4 Women Busts «Mechanitis Polymnia», «Millipora», «Black Baccara» and «Sternocera». This last piece was made by the artist during a residency program at The Insect Museum of Nedde (France). More than 500 jewel beetles’ wings were necessary to make this stunning piece where the incredible colours of these wings strongly contrast with the pureness of the porcelain biscuit.
P.s. Note that jewel beetles wings are a product of leftovers from Asian restaurants, they sold it on special fairs to artists like Jan Fabre etc.
The new Audi A5 Coupé premiere became the world’s first automobile launch event employing real-time motion tracking technology. The car’s advantages were presented in an innovative show “Artificial Intelligence vs YOU’ — the result of a creative collaboration between the event’s general producer, DEPARTÁMENT New & Wow Marketing agency, SILA SVETA studio and Interactive Lab.
The creative concept “AI vs YOU” was the main theme of the event and the reference point for the script of the show where real-time motion tracking technology was used. Acting as the author and the main character of its own presentation, the car effortlessly controlled the 3D mapping scenario by driving around the projected area. Special sensors were attached to the car to detect its precise location in the 500 sq.m space and to connect it to the live synchronisation and rendering system creating impressive video content and controlling light fixtures in real time.
More than 400 guests watched the show from the stand designed to secure a specific viewing angle. At the show’s culmination point each of them was surprised by a phone call telling them a short phrase “But You Can” in the voice of Artificial Intelligence.
Western Flag (Spindletop, Texas) 2017 depicts the site of the 'Lucas Gusher' - the world's first major oil find - in Spindletop, Texas in 1901, now barren and exhausted. John Gerrard has recreated the site as a digital simulation and placed at its centre a flagpole bearing a flag of perpetually-renewing pressurised black smoke. The computer generated Spindletop runs in exact parallel with the real site in Texas throughout the year: the sun rising at the appropriate times and the days getting longer and shorter according to the seasons. The simulation is non-durational (having no beginning or end) and is run live by software that is calculating each frame of the animation in real time as it is needed.
Graphic designer from Albania - Vasjen Katro challenged his inner visual goddess by doing a stunning abstract poster every day. By completing "Baugasm 365" last month he sets new goals for the next year
Visual artists from Mexico - Alfredo Chamal uses simple ball-point pen to create his photo realistic artworks. This medium is nothing new and used by prominent contemporary artists like Jan Fabre or famous illustrator Juan Casas . As for Alfredo it's a new way to reveal psychorealistic art that's rolling on in Mexico right now
Graphic designer from Buenos Aires, Angello Torres, envisioned a series of dreamy, scattered posters. Focusing on neat typography, the works illustrate films, art events or depict loose thoughts and ideas.
"In this cool music video for Dan Black’s “Farewell” feat. Kelis, French director-duo Chic & Artistic, used 25 monsters to illustrate the song’s theme of memory. Each monster is a unique, original creation, made using multiple techniques, including the recycling of materials. They are designed to represent the distorted memories of a relationship, the half forgotten moments, the amplified details."
Artist Stacy Lovejoy’s newest sculpture series “Super Power Tools” combines vibrant colours and simple shapes, inspiring viewers to harness the carefree and adventurous spirit of childhood. Stacy channels her inner child and love for whimsy to communicate childlike abandon and lust for life through installations, paintings, sculpture and performance art. Her ability to convey the essence of youth through multiple mediums seems driven by her connection to honesty and spontaneity: an artistic expression of the desire to remain forever young.
From her studio in Portland, OR, Stacy creates a variety of art which aligns well with the neo-pop, futurism and contemporary faux naïf genres. Her history includes drawing from a very young age, and continuously seeking new ways in which to artistically express her joy and concurrently inspire others to lie authentically through reigniting the glittering excitement and insatiable curiosity inherent in young children.
Through this mindset, Stacy aims to inspire others to create their own reality and utilise their freedom of choice to foster artistic and intellectual curiosity with a penchant for experimentation and adventure.
Super Power Tools
“Super Power Tools” is composed of 17 pieces fashioned primarily from acrylic on plywood, which exhibit a multitude of influences: mother nature makes a strong appearance, with a repeating theme of foliage and flower petals in variegating color schemes, plumage of winged creatures, and mystical patterns reflecting majestic creatures; conversely, the installations reference to tools shines through in pieces like Programming Book of a Goal Achievement and Fan Spreader of Spontaneity, which tout markings and shapes that call to mind protractors, measuring tapes, and grandfather clocks. This dichotomy of nature and spontaneity, melded with structured implements from the man-made world, seems to explore Stacy’s desire to cultivate a return to the childlike state for those who view her art, urging them to let go of stifling stress and seriousness and breathe in “Super Power Tools” to unleash the silliness and wonderment of youth.
