This series is too dope and inspiring. I feel the up-and-coming generation needs to follow this series. Not only does it document influential people of now, it goes into their history and how they came to be what they are now. The influencers who influenced them.
All I know is that that’s a big ass book and I want to jot, doodle, scribble, transcript, and scribe on it.
Starting at Tokyo’s Mori Art Museum in 2006, Cameroon-born artist Bili Bidjocka and Lausanne-born curator Simon Njami have been traversing the world inviting creatives of varied professional backgrounds to write on the blank pages of eight enormous books “as if it were their the last opportunity to hand write something.” Their project, called Ecriture Infinie, emphasizes the gestures of writing and the flow of pen on paper rather than actual content.
It’s so simple but cool as hell. Vintage!
Using a Teagueduino and a few inputs and outputs, we put together a physical side-scrolling video game. To control it, there’s a knob on the side. As time advances the game gets faster and faster — can you avoid all the obstacles and make it to the end?
I’ve seen these pictures floating around the internets and always wondered who took them. Now that I finally found out and saw the whole set I’m effing elated. Come on now, hot girls on bikes?! You can’t go wrong.
During his successful exhibition in Hong Kong, INSA unveiled the completed set of his ongoing public installation project, Girls On Bikes. Now the rest of the world will get to see the 12 individual photos that work together as a unified piece. The seemingly random images seeks a deeper meaning on how we perceive ownership of public space, represented by his mural, of sexuality, represented by overtly sexualized female presence and of belongings, represented by the bicycles. Majority of the photographs were taken in London, however there are some exceptions with San Fransisco, Ghent, Los Angeles and Hong Kong mixing things up.
Anything that involves flipping or acrobatics in general is dope. Especially when shot in slow-motion.

What we have here is Clicq’up Origami Ice Bucket by Mathias van de Walle. The whole idea is pretty damn cool. The only I problem I have is that Veuve Clicquot has ran it course, at least with me. Every brunch or dinner someone wants to order a damn bottle. Don’t get me wrong its tasty, but I’m over it. Now I’m on the quest to find another overpriced bottle of champagne to fulfill my inner smugness.
Belgium-based artist ROA happened to be in town for the Galore Festival located in the cultural area of Toftegårds place in Valby. For display he decided to wrap a dismembered serpent around a tower.
“WasteLandscape” is a 500 square meters artificial undulating landscape covered by an armor of 65 000 unsold or collected CDs, which have been sorted and hand-sewn. It is well known that CDs are condemned to gradually disappear from our daily life, and to later participate in the construction of immense open-air, floating or buried toxic waste reception centers.Made of petroleum, this reflecting slick of CDs forms a still sea of metallic dunes: the art work’s monumental scale reveals the precious aspect of a small daily object.
You couldn’t make a better video for this song. I already loved the crap out of this song, now seeing the video….I think I may have had an eye/eargasm.

Make sure to check out Kendrick Lamar’s show at SOBs Aug. 31st.
I first shot Kendrick Lamar while shooting Jay Rock’s album cover in Knickerson Gardens in Watts. Louie Mejia from CNN is always on the lookout for the next lastest greatest talent we have here in LA. So I put him in touch with Kendrick through my good friend Richie Abbott.
Unusual but beautifully done.
