Check out this amazing video about Ron Mueck, who in my opinion is probably the best sculptor in the world. His hyper-realism is absolutely breathtaking. The video was filmed during his show at The National Gallery in London. During the video they discuss how he creates his work, and the amount of detail that goes into each piece. It’s a pretty remarkable process.
And just as a side note, this is probably not entirely work safe, even though it’s just art. There is complete nudity, so don’t watch this around grandchildren, or extreme conservatives.
Garrett, my best friend since the 3rd grade, was pretty bummed that he missed the wrestlers from the Parking Lot Art Show… So thankfully I was given some video of the wrestlers having at it, pretty fun stuff, so be sure to watch it!
Oh man oh man oh man!
The picture above is a first look at Spike Jonze’s adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are, Maurice Sendak’s classic children’s story. Just from this one shot, I want to see it so badly!
That little kid is so damn lucky!
The movie is also staring Catherine Keener, James Gandolfini, Angus Sampson, Benicio Del Toro, Forest Whitaker, Michelle Williams, Catherine O’Hara and Paul Dano. This sounded really bad to me at first, but damn… Spike Jonze is awesome anyway, so I guess there’s no real worry.
I was browsing around Partizan’s site after posting that Teenagers video, so I’ve been watching a bunch of really great videos and commercials all morning. This commercial for Honda by Antoine Bardou-Jacquet really stuck out to me though. Honda has been really hitting the nail on the head with their commercials lately, and this one is no exception. The art direction is totally stunning, the lighting around the choir slightly mimicking the shots of the car. Even the clothes that the choir are wearing, the women’s outfits in particular, are so well done and stylish.
Just watch it and you’ll get to see “what a Honda feels like”.
This video for The Teenagers, directed by Kinga Burza, is so beautiful and dreamy, even though the song itself is kinda’ raunchy and talks about getting down with your step-cousin or something. The song and video remind of something that Sofia Coppola would do, sort of like her short film, ‘Lick The Star’.
The Teenagers released the single for Homecoming a week ago on Merok Records. Also be sure to check out their really good remix Myspace!
