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 [...]

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 [...]

Top 10 post on mixingreality.com : July 2011 – August 2011

Ranging from the musical and visual wonder of oscillating guitar strings to cameos carved from the creamy center of Oreo cookies, last month's top posts are eclectic, though with one consistent thread, almost all of them are art oriented. Thank you for continuing to surprise us with your enthusiasm and support.  This month, we will be [...]

Jer Thorp : Data Visualization, the Long Tail & Connections

Even after all this time, I'm still amazed at the long tail, and how likeminds find each other.   I was playing around with Google+, and came upon Jer Thorp, who is the data artist in residence at The New York Times.  As I clicked around, I came across an award-winning project he did a number of years ago called Petals, which I remembered [...]

The Starn Twins’ Big Bambú Recycled for the Venice Biennale

  Identical twins, Mike and Doug Starn rose to prominence in the 80's, when their large scale collaborations utilizing photography and scotch tape earned them a place among the art stars of New York. Their work, which has always dealt with transition and impermanence still resonates with themes of life, death, and fragility. The [...]
