Jackson Pollock

November 30, 2010 § Leave a comment

I think I must have missed this website somehow.  Jackson Pollock.org is apparently one of the most famous works of internet art, made by Miltos Manetas in 2003.  You can make your own abstract art with your mouse!

Street Doodle: Girls on Girls

November 30, 2010 § 1 Comment

I almost choked when I saw this outside a very old school Chinese plaza in Milpitas.

At the first glance, it looks like a slightly high bunny rabbit thing.  But then you noticed it says ‘girls on girls’.

Created by Leo Burnett, Chile

Being a marketing major and a former ad agency intern, I’m always on the lookout for brilliant ads.  This creative 3D visual for Samsung TV really drives home the point clearly (no pun intended).

I had the chance to visit the Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University today with my parents and grandpa.  The museum is beautiful and they had some very interesting exhibits while we were there.  This bronze sculpture was my favorite piece there.

The Public Isolation Project – By Cristine Norine and Joshua Jay Elliott

November 24, 2010 § 3 Comments

The Public Isolation Project consists of two symbiotic and simultaneous art pieces–Joshua Jay Elliott’s An Examinable Life and Cristin Norine’s The Future of Socializing.  An analog analogy of the contemporary experience of living in the Internet age, Cristin Norine will spend one month living within the confines of the bSIDE6 Gallery—in total view from the gallery’s windows.  Her isolation will be alleviated solely by digital interactions with the outside world.  Viewers of the piece will reflect on their own expanded accessibility that technology has brought them.

Kanye West and “Runaway”

album art for 'runaway'

I have always been a huge Kanye West fan.  His debut album The College Dropout remains one of my favorite hiphop album to date.  I borrowed the CD from a friend in 9th grade and I couldn’t stop listening to the whole thing.  Woven together, the songs and interlude skits created a very solid concept album.  While everyone else was churning out the same formulaic pop song, hoping to score that one summer hit, Kanye West never seemed to see creating just one hit.  He makes his own path.  To this day, he has constantly reinvented himself and his music so that he stood out amongst all the others.  It’s a shame that his often questionable behavior has been magnified in the public eye, turning everyone’s focus on the VMAs or the George W Bush-Kanye feud instead of his work.  Kanye will probably always remain in the center of the music scene for his controversial behavior.  Then again, who is ever interested in someone who behaves the way they should?  His behavior and ego makes the music just so much more…his. « Read the rest of this entry »
