  • A Nail Biting Performance & 'Til I Get It Right

    Ceal Floyer is one of my favorite artists to follow as her work is conscise and poignant as it teeters between humor and lack. Video: Ceal Floyer performance d13 Duration: about 1.20 min before the press conference to documenta (13) offered a brief Ceal Floyer “Nail Biting Performance” ‘Til I Get It Right at dOCUMENTA…

  • Kinetic Drawing Sculpture by Karina Smigla-Bobinski

    ADA – Analog Interactive Installation, is a kinetic sculpture by German-based artist Karina Smigla-Bobinski.

  • Allora & Calzadilla

    I really think that Allora & Calzadilla have created an interesting body of work! I especially enjoy “Returning a Sound” 2004 Art 21 @Lisson Gallery

  • Jeppe Hein

    Sometimes it seems like someone makes all the work you’ve ever wanted to. Jeppe Hein’s witty, poetic and sometimes off the wall body of kinetic work has me throwing my hands up in the air and shrugging. I have sketch video’s of dust bunnies being pushed around by air. The screw in the wall is…

Gober creates uncanniness through moods of aloneness, voyeurism and lack of sense place and time. Primal Fantasies: the fantasy is not the object of…

  • Olifur's Fan

    I saw this piece installed at Chicago’s MCA over the summer. The piece hits on quite a few things that I really like in art work. The essence of the material informs the content of the piece. Air is used in a powerful and interesting way. There is also a nice balance of simplicity, delicacy…

  • Ceal Floyer

    A new inspiration/favorite artist. Ceal Floyer’s witty & poignant work hits on something I constantly am striving for. Her work is dryly poetic in the way of a John Updike short story, but lingers like a drip on the edge of a spout. (Yeah, I just made that up! Ha!) Anyway, her work is interesting.…
