Lowrider Coloring Book by Dokument Press »

Lowrider Coloring Book by Dokument Press

Growing up in Southern California, Lowriders were a culture you had to belong to, to fully experience.  Even being Latina did not count if you were not part of La Familia.   So it is interesting to see Lowrider cultural crossover that has transcended the decades, while the basic aesthetics of the cars remain the same. With its own [...]

Jay Shells is a Metropolitan Etiquette Authority

      We live in times of constant information, constant movement, constant change.  Perhaps it is not surprising that social manners and etiquette have taken a back seat to bad behavior.  And perhaps we should not be surprised when our bad behavior is now called out by artists acting as contemporary Emily [...]

Katsuyo Aoki’s Predictive Dreams are Ceramic Wonders

According to the saying, we can only predict two things in life: death and taxes. Katsuyo Aoki's Predictive Dreams tend to be prescient of the former. Though the remnants of this death are a tad more elegant than one imagines our actual skeletal remains. Based on historical backgrounds, ideas, myths, and allegories, the work makes us stop [...]

Mark Changizi: How Not to Get Absorbed in Someone »

Mark Changizi: How Not to Get Absorbed in Someone Else’s Abdomen

Mark Changizi and I met on Stumbleupon. His work with the science of creativity, the harnessing of the brain (he just released a new book), and his general intelligence caught my eye immediately.  As I have mentioned here before, Stumbleupon has been a constant source of likemindedness since discovering it in 2007. Mark and I have been [...]

Vincent Kohler’s Turnaround Series of Artful Baseball Bats

Baseball is the quintessential American game.  In fact, many non-Yanks I know, look at the game, and wonder at its pace, its simplicity, its invisible complexity, and scratch their heads. Full disclosure:  I am not a baseball fan.  But I love beautifully worked wood sculpture. Vincent Kohler's series, Turnaround has just a hint of [...]

Banksy’s Documentary: The Antics Roadshow

We love street art here at mixingreality. So when a friend sent us Banksy's new doc, we had to check it, and now we have to share.  Without further ado, (though you might want to skip to :55) Banksy's The Antics Roadshow:

Britain’s Channel 4: Street Summer & the Street Tag App

Definition - Tag: a personal signature, usually vandalism with spraypaint, but can be any graffiti. Have you ever wanted to tag something?   You know, go out with a spray can and create on a wall or building...but the vandalism part of it gets the better of you? As part of their Street Summer series, Britain's Channel 4 has come up [...]

Snail Mail My Email Inspires the Written Word »

Snail Mail My Email Inspires the Written Word

I'm a letter and card writer.  Though, as I spend more and more time communicating online, less and less do I send snail mail.  So this idea is interesting, and may in fact inspire me to create this type of expression more. As its creators describe it: Snail Mail My Email is a month-long (July 15 - August 15), interactive community [...]
