    ‘BLOCKBUSTER': Harmony Korine Makes Sculptures from VHS Covers

    Nostalgia is a hell of a drug. It can make you feel affection for TV shows that weren’t funny, movies that weren’t any good, or even technology that was by any objective measure totally substandard and inadequate. Take the VHS tape, which has been subject to fetishization and reminiscence for years now, Harmony Korine’s (Spring […]

    Contact Warhol Project Releasing More Than 130,000 Unseen Photos

    It’s really too bad that legendary Pop Artist Andy Warhol didn’t live to see the age of social media, because his brand would be a perfect fit for Twitter or Instagram. The guy loved to take selfies, usually with a celebrity or famous face in tow, and now the Andy Warhol Foundation is releasing more […]

  • ‘Skyscraper (the Bruges Whale)': Made from 10,000 Pounds of Recycled Plastic

    ‘Skyscraper (the Bruges Whale)': Made from 10,000 Pounds of Recycled Plastic

    Brooklyn’s own StudioKCA was commissioned to create a piece for the Bruges Triennial 2018 in Belgium. They came up with a massive piece called Skyscraper (the Bruges Whale), and it’s not just a piece of momentary distraction of the eye but also an environmental statement, made as it is from more than 10,000 pounds of plastic that had […]

  • KIDULT EXTINCTOR by Street Artist Kidult

    KIDULT EXTINCTOR by Street Artist Kidult

    Street artist Kidult has put out a limited edition “paint extinguisher” that does not actually extinguish paint (such a device would be antithetical to a street artist, I imagine) but instead sprays it in a new way. It’s called the KIDULT EXTINCTOR, and here are the official specs: -Matte black ‘KIDULT’ and body finish -All Metal […]

    Disney Orgy 6 Skateboards Commemorate ‘The Disneyland Memorial Orgy’

    Wally Wood’s The Disneyland Memorial Orgy is one of the most famous bootleg illustrations of all time, a gleefully tasteless, well, orgy that first appeared in the underground magazine The Realist in 1967. Now, it’s back, and in skateboard form, for a collection of Disney Orgy 6 skateboards from Boom-Art. When placed side by side, the Disney Orgy 6 skateboards reproduce The […]

  • Haddock House by Frank Lloyd Wright is Up for Sale

    Haddock House by Frank Lloyd Wright is Up for Sale

    A lesser known work by famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright located in Ann Arbor, Michigan is now up for sale. It’s called Haddock House, originally designed for a (presumably pretty well-off) schoolteacher in 1938. But it took more than 40 years from that point for the house to actually be constructed, when Charles Montooth of Taliesin Assoc. […]

  • ‘Logofonts’ by Italian Designer Emanuele Abrate

    ‘Logofonts’ by Italian Designer Emanuele Abrate

    I don’t know if I can really say it’s a slow news day today, since the whole internet is hopping about various announcements and trailers coming out of E3. But since I don’t think I can just write up video game trailers all day, I have to turn to this somewhat interesting project from Italian designer […]

    ‘Pornhub Nation': An Interactive Art Installation by Pornhub

    It seems like there’s something in the air that’s bringing outer space weirdness back into popular culture (maybe it’s that new Parliament album). Pornhub is now getting in on the action with what they call “ASSA, the future’s first space program dedicated to interstellar intercourse,” as part of their new interactive art installation entitled Pornhub Nation.  […]

    ‘Moonshot VS.004′: A $2500 Porcelain Basketball

    I’m pretty sure my old grandad used to say “that’s about as useful as a porcelain basketball” when he saw something that he deemed pointless and/or useless. But sculptor Victor Solomon and ceramicist Brock Deboer have teamed up to make a real porcelain basketball, a limited edition piece called Moonshot VS.004. There are only three Moonshot VS.004 sculptures in […]
