Dillon Marsh

A cell phone tower was first disguised as a palm tree for the first time in 1996. It first made an appearance in a Cape Town suburb. Since the first appearance in Cape Town, all these phony trees have been distributed throughout the rest of the world. Photographer Dillon Marsh had a project to explore these disguised cell phone towers. In the first photo we can see a phony palm tree that was placed in an average looking neighborhood. It is also placed alongside roads and aside other living trees. These disguised cell phone towers add a tasteful touch in the modern world than compared to the typical steel looking cell phone towers.

Sofilla / Emotions

It’s so mindlessly simple and easy to listen to yet, sort of sweet and sincere. This song has a depth within the uncomplicated words and the effortless flow. It almost feels like a perfect match to an idle, quiet Saturday evening after you decided to stay in.


The beat of the music and the use of repetitive yet intriguing tunes keep your attention on the song itself. It is quiet refreshing to have a modern female artist try something other then the intrinsic Sadcore Hollywood scene most modern female artists are doing now, such as Kimbra, and Priscilla Ahn.
In summation, this song is smooth, captivating and goes well with unoccupied nights.

It will be unveiled later this week and involve a host of artists …

Nicolas Coulomb

Incredibly fond of Nicolas’s work and I have a feeling we featured it at some point in the past but this glitch / computer inspired effects which take their original inspiration from those energetic patterns really caught my attention. A glitch enthusiast myself it was eye opening to find a photographer that managed to marry the two forms together.

A broken glimpse to myself

Text

The following is a conversation I am having with a friend and artist about art history and the direction of art, this is unlike anything else on the blog and is a deep insight on myself and my friends thinking.

Jasmine Deporta

Jasmine Deporta displays these bags in an alluring, yet suttling way. The symmetry she produces in the second photo really draws the eye in. Unlike most photographers, Jasmine portrays her photos in a way where it is not obvious she is not trying to concentrate on a particular physical part of the photo. Her way of not setting the attention of these photos simply on how the bags are metallic but rather the clash between them and everyday life is brilliant. In Deporta’s other pieces it is clear to see she has developed the ability to not overstate certain parts of a photo.

Lennard Kok

An A6 zine gracefully entitled, Falling Objects. Never has anything been truer to its title than this.

Kokoro & Moi

I’ve featured this incredibly talented agency in the past but I’ll have no problems in featuring them a second time round thanks to the great work they did Fazer Cafe in Helsinki. The Cafe itself was established in 1891 so immediately you can see them draw on inspiration from the history of the cafe itself and not needlessly chosen a font just for the aesthetic quality.

Eve Warren

It was certainly tasking to just pick out three examples of work from Eve’s portfolio on Behance as she’s a very young and exciting talent coming out of Leeds. To generalise her work the words bold and structured come to mind, it’s all very controlled and consistent without becoming repetitive and predictable.

Vilde Rolfsen

Aptly named Plastic Bag Landscapes, no points gained if you guessing what this is. It takes a lot of vision and perhaps a touch of calculating madness to think that tons of disregarded bags could form a rather spectacular and stunning landscape. It’s also one of the pieces I would love to know the backstory to.

Mike Ellis

Shows off some beautiful examples of editorial work he’s created for a variety of clients on his site. He’s also responsible for a number of very cool zines for a few dollars each that are well worth a look into!

Stephan Tillmans

Remember those chunky old television sets that would flicker when you switched them off? Well believe it or not these are stills taken German photograph Stephan Tillmans just as they were turned off. I would never imagine in a million years that something so simple and done by millions of people across the world was actually so beautiful.

Philippe Caza

Pretty amazing stuff created way back in the 70s from the renowned French comic artist. The colours are very much of that time period but if you look at the illustrations themselves they are hardly dated, in fact a few months ago I posted up a piece by Paul Putzar which looks eerily similar to Phillippe.

Sarah Schönfeld

" Sarah Schönfeld squeezed drops of various legal and illegal liquid drug mixtures onto negative film which had already been exposed. Each drop altered the coating of the film. Much like the effect of some of these substances on humans, this can be a lengthy process – sometimes one that can barely be stopped.

She then enlarged these negatives including the chemical reaction of the particular drug, to sizes of up to 160 x 200 cm. All of the substances behaved very differently: the shapes and colors that appeared showed unique characteristics and revealed unique internal universes. Schönfeld explores the possibilities of photography at the frontiers of what can be visually portrayed– the interface between representation and reality. “
