Half Wet

Half Wet from Sophie Koko Gate on Vimeo.

“We are all born as wet as a banana, around 75% water. By the time we reach adulthood that amount goes down to 54% water. Gus bumps into Tiny Eyes at dusk, on the eve of his 25th birthday.”

Check out Sophie Koko Gate’s amazing and strange film.



Beautiful photos by Arno De Pooter. The series is aptly titled Bleach.

Lutz Bacher


It may be something about the increasingly hazy and hot weather in NYC lately but I’ve been thinking a lot about this artist Lutz Bacher lately. Lutz is relatively anonymous and doesn’t do many interviews, photo shoots, etc. I think she’s a woman but I’m not even sure about that. But like heat and humidity envelop the city, her work renders objects blurry and obfuscated so that you start to see things that aren’t there. Her work hinges on ambiguity and runs the gamut from photography to sculpture. If you live in the city, her show at Greene Naftali in Chelsea just came down but we’re including some images below anyways. 😉

Graphic novels of Vincent and Pablo

Loving the graphic novel biographies that have just come out of Vincent Van Gogh and Pablo Picasso.

It is a clever way to get educated up on the life of the notable artists. The graphic novel’s visual storytelling taps into both artist’s domain rather than following the traditional full worded format. The stories are factually sound, after being heavily researched by the authors and contain excerpts from original letters. Hopefully more biographies in the future will come out graphic novel style!
