“A Million Times” is a new project by humans since 1982. It’s similar to their The Clock Clock project, this time they’ve used 288 clocks which can be controlled by an iPad. We’ve seen stuff like this before, but it’s still mesmerizing.”
Exécution, Après Goya, 2008
Oil on canvas
110 1/4 x 157 3/4 inches (280 x 400.7 cm)
“Among the paintings on view in the present exhibition, one refers directly to a work by Goya. Exécution, Après Goya (2008) offers an interpretation of The Third of May 1808 (1814), which depicts the execution by firing squad of Spanish civilians who had taken part in an uprising against the French occupation of their country. Using blood red paint and bold brushstrokes with visible drips, Ming’s version of the subject matter dramatically isolates the figures from any background, thus separating the action from its historical context. The painting is the only one in the exhibition to use a color that is not black, white, or gray.”
Stop motion ad for Mexican food chain Chipotle by London-based Johnny Kelly, set to a Willie Nelson cover of the Coldplay song, The Scientist. The video features the story of a farmer seduced by profits into large-scale unsustainable and unhealthy farming practices who decides to go “back to the start”, ridding the farm of its factory machinery resulting in happier and healthier animals. The quality of the animation is simply incredible.
whether or not you believe it is one thing, but it’s cute
