Piet Langeveld is an upcoming Dutch video artist who integrates modern school production techniques with old school ones. Everything sounds good up to this point, but things get… tricky. In her latest video we see a beautiful thick eyebrow woman wearing a skin tone catsuit, staring at the spectator while laying on the floor of an infinite white steamy space, filming herself with a selfie-stick and a camera. The woman is BEA. All good. She is singing a duet with a camp animated dog fading in-and-out the video. Yep. Just as you read.
If you were hoping the lyrics could explain this bizarre situation, maybe by listening to them over a couple of times, maybe a hundred, sorry but it’s like not gonna happen. That doesn’t mean, though, that you can’t be totally thrilled everytime that hound comes out. It’s happening here.
What’s behind the most iconic album covers of the music scene? Unicorns? The Holy Grail? Carmen Sandiego?
We all know that covers are, or used to be, a recap of what bands wanted to say with their work; a message or, simply, a portrait of their style. But… what happens if we enlarge that cover and we see what’s surrounding the background? With this project done by the Digital Aptitude agency, they’ve chosen the albums that would be victims of their “revelations” and have meticulously and very wittily created a scene that frames what’s happening. How ingenious the manufacturing is makes Justin Bieber’s “My World” or Adele’s “19” releases worth having a second look.
Fashion photography, a world full of roses, thorns, bramble surrounding, resistant weed, slugs, snails, the moss, the little pastor and the whole Nativity scene if you scratch a little bit. Where looks are deceiving, retouching lies and expectations shock.
Like Pierre Debusschere. There’s the everything, and then there’s Pierre Debusschere. There’s the Big Bang and Pierre Debusschere. This multidisciplinary photographer that explores the world of fashion image and video is a usual contributor for Dazed & Confused, has worked for Raf Simons, Nowness, Numéro, Maison Martin Margiela, Vuitton and has had his own project in Colette, Paris. With his mixture and craftiness in post-production, he is able to portray what it seems that actually is beyond models and concepts surface, conferring the images with a halo of irreality that, at the same time, grants them with more veracity. Take them to the other side to make them more approachable. With Debusschere, scratching is worth it.
It’s Monday. If our usual productivity levels are naturally low on this day, if you add all the Halloween shenanigans when you even drank all the fake blood dressed up in a loose morality costume, we can imagine that your will to build the country today is rather non-existent. That’s why, today, we encourage you to lose time with no shame; with dark sunglasses to cover your dark circles and a coffee in hand, we lead you to discover which is probably the best and most useless project on the Internet, the Windows 93 simulator!
Indeed, beloved readers, Jakenpopp & Zombectro‘s creative minds have made up this microsite that transforms our operating system to a Windows 93, with it’s floating windows, grey squares and those irritating noises that were the tune for one of the first sons of the big Microsoft. This place is a file and archive mash up where wasting time is a deal; from flash games about how to rob a bank, to a nice lady that keeps you entertained on screed, the list of actions to do is endless and all that with the typical infernal look. Put everything you might be doing down, Windows 93 is waiting for you!
