Waves by Daniel Palacios

I am very much a sucker for art that mixes with science in anyway.  In this piece, Waves, Daniel Palacios uses a string attached to 2 motors to interpret sound detected in the surrounding environment.

Photography by Jacob Sutton

Jacob Sutton captures beautifully haunting images in his exhibition photography.  Sutton works in color for his commercial work, but sticks to black and white or monochromatic photography for his exhibition work.

Johan Rijpma, Tape Generations

Johan Rijpma breathes life into ordinary rolls of packing tape by sticking them to the ceiling in various patterns and allowing gravity to take over. He does also lean on some clever video work to add some appeal to the whole thing. This video of the work is fantastic and well worth watching.

Digital Montage Number 1

Nick Gentry

Nick Gentry paints portraits of fit, young people onto collections of old discarded floppy disks.  These pieces are interesting to me, with the importance that our popular culture places on the shiny and new.

Abigail Reynolds

Abigail Reynolds is an artist based in London and has been exhibiting her artwork around the world since Y2K, remember that mess? Anyway, Reynolds latest work is constructed from primarily from found book images to construct a new composition. I really enjoy the way she plays with color and composition as she allows her work to break free from the confines of the square or rectangle.
