Bedrooms are significant part for all of us during our childhood and it reflects who we are and what we want to be. Where Children Sleep is a project by James Mollison with idea to engage young people to understand children’s rights. The bedroom pictures would be inscribed with the children’s material and cultural circumstances, the details that inevitably mark people apart from each other, while the children themselves would appear in the set of portraits as individuals, as equals just as children. After watching these photos you may ask yourself - what was your childhood like? Continue reading

Amazing Screw Art In 3D

Meet Andrew Myers, one of the most patient modern-day sculptors around. This Laguna Beach, California-based artist goes through a multi-step process to create incredible works of art you almost have to see (or touch) to believe. He starts with a base, plywood panel, and then places pages of a phone book on top. He then draws out a face and pre-drills 8,000 to 10,000 holes, by hand. As he drills in the screws, Myers doesn’t rely on any computer software to guide him, he figures it out as he goes along. “For me, I consider this a traditional sculpture and all my screws are at different depths,” he says. All we can say is congratulations Andrew and keep up with great work…

Back To The Future

Original and creative gallery of photographies by Irina Werning. Artist about herself: “I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… A few months ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.”

Floppy Disk Art

British artist Nick Gentry’s paintings give long-forgotten floppy disks a new lease on life. They’re still storage media, just in a much more literal sense.

At some point recently, you’ve probably uncovered an old box of videos, cassettes, and floppies in the basement and thought to yourself, “what am I supposed to do with these?” It turns out you just weren’t thinking hard enough.

Painting on canvases comprised of 3.5″ floppy disks and VHS tapes, Nick Gentry puts these bygone forms of storage to use in his art.

When The Light Meets Graffiti

Light painting, also known as light drawing or light graffiti is a photographic technique in which exposures are made usually at night or in a darkened room by moving a hand-held light source or by moving the camera. In many cases the light source itself does not have to appear in the image.

Technique and equipment:

A variety of light sources can be used, ranging from simple flashlights to dedicated devices like the Hosemaster, which uses a fiber optic light pen. Other sources of light including candles, matches, lighter flints, glowsticks, and Poi are also popular.
A tripod is usually necessary due to the long exposure times involved. Alternatively, the camera may be placed on or braced against a table or other solid support. A shutter release cable or self timer is generally employed in order to minimize camera shake. Color Gels can also be used to color the light sources.
Manual focus is often used since autofocus systems may not perform well in low light. In addition, photographers often use a slow film speed or low ISO setting on a digital sensor to minimize grain (or digital noise) and increase exposure tolerance, as evaluating exposure is often tricky.

Unusual Subject View

Art is about creation, being unique, and personality. Sometimes it is ugly, sometimes is beautiful but it is still art. Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. What is beautiful to one person is spiteful to another. Also, art expresses an idea, emotion, and/or truth. What we are conditioned to consider (generally) “beautiful” or “ugly” can change with the swipe of a brush or the turn of a century. Also, what we are conditioned to consider art can also change. At the end, everything is art. Take a look at this photo, and be a judge… Enjoy! Continue reading

Tattoos And Time

old tattoo

Yellow and red are the hardest colors to maintain over time, blue and black are the easiest and most stable to maintain.

Research has shown that nearly 1 in 4 people have at least one tattoo on their body. The overall length of time that a tattoo styles healthy and vibrant in color all depends on how well it was taking care of after it was completed and how the skin is taking care of. The pigment that makes up the tattoo must remain the way it is over time, although tanning and wrinkles can affect the color and clarity of the tattoo. The number one enemy of tattoos is the sun.

Tongue Tattoos

tongue-tattooThe needles move extremely fast, breaking the skin and leaving the pigments of ink.

As tongue tattoos become more and more popular, more and more designs are implemented. In most cases, those who already have them, chose to have their tongue tattooed a certain color. As far as the procedure goes, it’s very similar to getting a tattoo on any other part of your body. The tongue, just like the skin, will swallow the pigments once the surface has been punctured by the needle. There are also designs that can be tattooed farther back on the tongue, near the middle of it. Continue reading

The History of Political Cartoons

The political cartoon arguably dates all the way back to the time of Martin Luther. In Luther’s battle against the Catholic Church, he decided that it would be beneficial to enroll the support of the less educated masses. By illustrating the hypocrisies Luther saw in the Catholic Church, he was able to influence the political opinion of many of those who couldn’t read.

Learn Digital Photography – Encouraging Creativity in Photography

The world has gone digital crazy. With many homes having multiple digital camera owners you can’t move without seeing someone taking a digital snap. And the operative word here is a snapshot. Not much thought, creativity or photographic composition. Just lots and lots of digital pollution cramming the millions of hard drives, DVDs and memory cards. Digital has enabled people to take more low quality, thoughtless snapshots.

Digital photography could see the death of creativity in photography in general. Why such a harsh statement? Here’s why:

Lack of thought
As a film photographer the consumable costs of photography were much higher. This forced us to think and carefully consider each shot. There was a greater thought process. Using a motor drive for taking multiple shots was for the press photographers who could afford take thirty six images in a few seconds. For the rest of us we had to think more before pressing the button.
