“I paint an anxiety-ridden dystopia where corruption and injustice plague the social order. Deviance prevails, as desperate characters struggle for power and control over their environment. The individual is displaced and forced to navigate this brutal world alone, finding hollow bits of pleasure and meaning in violence, sex, religion and drugs. The crowd is an erratic mob-like authority bending outsiders to its will. It’s a gray world where lawbreakers and law enforcers are one and the same: a world where ethics have been abandoned in favor of what every individual believes he’s entitled to. ”

More at the Fame Festival’s website, and after the jump, a Blu timelapse from 2008’s festival.

If you have mad hours to kill and want to lightly engage your mind, Nerve.Com’s feature I Did it For Science will do the trick. They should probably make this into a bathroom reader for efficiencies sake. May I suggest you read this one first.

In Domesticated, artist Amy Stein explores the archetypal motif of man verses nature. More specifically, her photographs explore the tenuous relationshp between man and animals as human civilization continues to encroach upon nature. Informed by actual newspaper accounts and oral histories from citizens of the small town of Matamoras in Northeast Pennsylvania, which borders a state forest, Stein’s photographs are inspired by true events.
