Users can interact with this amazing visceral world of sound color and creatures. There are a few more screens after the jump but, to really understand it check it out here or head over to Bitforms.

I found this ad in the May / June 1999 issue of Juxtapoz.  Screenprints like Ming, Riot Cop, and Big Brother were only $22 and in editions of 100.  How times advance.

Why Buy When You Can Steal?

ajw-delias

The Art Collectors points us to some alleged theivery in the form of a pattern print on a Delia’s dress and that of Andrew Jeffrey Wright’s original X-Wave Painting. Maybe since the company liked the work so much, they will bid on the artwork when it comes to auction at Phillip’s in a couple weeks.

koons_puppies

If you feel up to it…this is tonight.

“American-born pop artist Jeff Koons will discuss two recent publications documenting his works: Celebration records Koons’ October 2008 exhibition at Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie and Versailles explores Koons’ September 2008 exhibition at the Palace of Versailles–the first contemporary exhibition ever held in the apartments of the king. Both books display Koons’ penchant for the marriage of childhood nostalgia with more adult themes and sensibilities. Glenn O’Brien will interview Jeff Koons.”
