TIFFANY BOZIC FEATURE – The Creative Lives Season 2 cc: @JLGallery

8:01 pm in art,art events,video dustin hostetler

Faesthetic #3 contributor Tiffany Bozic is featured in this great new documentary.

Tiffany Bozic’s emotionally charged and thoughtful pairings of animals and other natural elements in her work reflects her deep personal feelings about life and those indescribably strange emotions that run through us all. Her dedication to paint and water color allows her to create incredibly thin paintings on wood and paper, so thin the grain shines through. In this episode we follow Tiffany as she prepares for a show at Jonathan Liner Gallery and shows us how she inspires herself at the archives of the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco.

What is most notable about about Richard Medina, besides his young age, is how solid his work is. Both his conceptually driven art, and his conceptually driven curatorial projects.

Seriously, homie is 16. I am 21 years his senior, and I’m totally impressed.

REVIEW: the “Unpocket” from @the_affair & @zoltancsaki

I’ve had a chance to spend a couple of weeks with the Unpocket, something I backed on Kickstarter what seems like a million years ago, and I have to say it was worth the wait.

Billed as “Simple privacy management for the under-surveillance society” it may seem a little silly to some. The Unpocket disconnects your device from RFID, GPS, WiFi and Cell. No, I’m not concerned about the NSA or CIA tracking my every move (yes I am), but I am in love with the notion of going radio silent.

I recently got an Apple Watch, and I’ll admit it’s a little rude and distracting to be constantly glancing at my wrist while in a meeting. Now, I place my phone in the Unpocket during a conversation and consciously tune out my alerts. It instantly mutes my watch and leaves me focused on the people I’m with.

Pictured above with an iPhone 6 and a Macbook, it’s the perfect size for most devices, and can double as a passport holder or even a simple wallet. The fact that it’s water resistant also makes it great for travel.

No, I’m not paranoid (yes I am) but the Unpocket is a lovely addition to my computer bag that sends a thoughtful message to the people I WANT to be surveilling me.

Ross Holden updates

Faesthetic #4 contributor Ross Holden sends word about his new body of work.

After spending almost four years travelling the world, Ross is now back in the UK and has spent the last 12 months working on this whole new batch of work where he draws inspiration from the many places he has seen and the people he has met along the road. Photographs and memories combine to produce a pool of material from which this new series has emerged. It reflects on cultures and attitudes encountered as well as on the personal journey of discovery that travel induces. The transition from a nomadic lifestyle to a static existence runs like an underlying theme throughout the work. The next series is already in the making and will be continuing to draw from the vast source of material gathered around the globe.
