Best of 2016

Stumbled upon this and wanted to immortalize it here as some of these exhibits have become my all-time favorites: http://mymodernmet.com/best-art-installations-2016/ They’ve inspired me when I think about what’s possible for my art and I’m sure other artists as well. I know there was even a similar installation of Plexus 35 at the Renwick in DC!…

Alexander McQueen’s Creations

Alexander McQueen is one of my favorite artistic/fashion icons that I am immensely inspired by. His designs are pure art- Savage Beauty is one collection that has stuck with me since the first time I saw it in middle school. It’s beautifully disturbing and eerie. The detail is incredible; I have 4 huge books on Alexander…

This video shows a completely “fake” (man-made) algorithm that has no biological meaning to simulate birds’ flying behavior. It is one of the early achievements of computer graphic (the video it self is…

Hayao Miyazaki – The Essence of Humanity

I recently watched this short youtube video on Hayao Miyazaki, the co-founder and film director of Studio Ghibli, a Japanese animation studio. Ghibli has long been one of my favorite film studios, and this hasn’t changed from when I was 10 years old to now (so almost a solid decade). This video helps articulate a…
