I’ve listened to this awesome track, Daybreaker, for the past week.
It’s the two Danish artists: Bon Homme – who’s daily name is Tomas Høffding – featuring Lydmor, which means Sound Mother in Danish. Behind Lydmor is Jenny Rossander.

If you like them too, you should follow their pages on Facebook:
- for Bon Homme

Big thanks to Thomas for showing me these awesome guys. I only knew Bon Homme from WhoMadeWho, where he plays the bass.

Georgia Theologou – known as Georgia Th - is a self-taught Greek artist who paints hauntingly beautiful portraiture. Created by combining traditional and digital media, Theologou’s intentionally limited palate and trademark visual rendering gives both a soft lushness and a harsh reality to her subjects.

Millie Brown Paints With Her Vomit

I have to say, that this completely gross me out! And yet I find it interesting. And odd. And  disgusting. And, like, trying too hard to stand out. I seriously get sick to my stomach just looking at it.

Performance artist Millie Brown uses her body in an uncomfortable way in order to create bright splashes of color on canvas – and sometimes clothes and people. She mixes colors into soy milk before regurgitating the milk onto her preferred canvas, akin to the drip-color style of Jackson Pollock.

Responses to her work have varied, ranging from laughing to crying, declarations of love, and even death threats, but Brown maintains that art is supposed to inspire powerful emotions in people.

“I have an inherent desire to push my own boundaries within my art… By creating art from the very depths of my own physical being I am able to challenge people’s perception of beauty, expressing raw elements of human nature and in turn challenging myself both physically and mentally”, Millie Brown says.

Chorus Grant: O Everyone

Chorus Grant - O Everyone 1 Chorus Grant - O Everyone 2 Chorus Grant - O Everyone 3

It’s my old friend from Bornholm (the island where I grew up) Kristian Finne Kristensen, who is behind Chorus Grant.

You should definitely check out his brand new album, Space, which is his second album. You can also follow him on Facebook. And oh. If you like his music – or just like to look at him – he’ll play at Ideal Bar in Copenhagen on May 15th with his band.

Bare Bears by Deborah Simon

These bears are so awesome!

Artist Deborah Simon‘s series of Flayed Bear Sculptures combine taxidermy, science and embroidery. Her three unusual bear sculptures have faux fur partially pulled back to reveal the anatomy underneath.

Deborah created the project both prior to and during her residency at New York’s Sculpture Space and describes the process as follows:

“The bears play with ideas around stuffed toys, taxidermy and classification. They especially interest me as bears are the ultimate stuffed animals; both the iconic plush toy and the prized taxidermy specimen for hunters. Most of all the sculptures deal with vulnerability; the vulnerability that the animals face from environmental degradation, conflicts with people, suburban sprawl and poaching. I particularly find the dichotomy between the defanged, declawed childhood toy and the fierce reality of a top predator fascinating.

The bears – polar, grizzly, black, and panda – are about toy size and seated like a plush toy bear. Their fur is removed on the body, leaving a linen skin, as if they’d been flayed or like undressed porcelain dolls, with the hard sculpted fur covered head and paws connected to the soft linen body. At Sculpture Space I started the black bear, creating the foam body, sewed the linen and fur, sculpted the head and mapped out the embroidery of the spine and nervous system.”

Auch! This fascinates me – and HURTS me at the same time.

The Spanish artist David Catá uses his body as a canvas, writing an autobiographical diary.

This ongoing series is called “A Flor De Piel”. He embroiders portraits of people who have influenced or marked his life, like family, friends, teachers, lovers, partners – sewn into the palm of his hand.

Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway

Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 1 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 2 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 3 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 4 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 5 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 6 Reactions To George Ferrandi Falling Asleep On Strangers In Subway 7

This ongoing project by Brooklyn-based George Ferrandi is called: “It felt like I knew you…

It’s a site-specific performance on the crowded New York City subway. All images are stills from iPhone videos. And they show how people react, when George Ferrandi put her head on their shoulder when falling asleep.

In an interview with Katherine Brooks of the Huffington Post, George Ferrandi was asked if she learned anything from the project. This is her response:

“For me, this piece taps into the mystery and fragility of how we relate and communicate to each other as human animals, full of signs secret even to ourselves. It’s given me a deeper understanding of the way New Yorkers evolve to maintain their privacy in public spaces. We carry our energy so closely. We’re often pressed up against each other on the train with a kind of “I wish I wasn’t touching you” energy that is invisible but respected. This is part of why so many people are touched by a photo of one man resting his head on the shoulder of another; it challenges a preconception about tenderness between strangers, especially in New York. And it offers a tiny counterpoint to the Culture of Fear being cultivated in America.”

Human Harp on Brooklyn Bridge

Human harp on Brooklyn Bridge 1 Human harp on Brooklyn Bridge 2

First imagined by artist Di Mainstone during a walk along New York’s Brooklyn Bridge, Human-Harp is a clip-on sound interface for suspension bridges that enables pedestrians to “play the bridge” like a musical instrument.

This high profile, mass participation, immersive art installation will tour internationally across a range of suspension bridges, engaging audiences in a story of sound and motion through cutting-edge technology. Our dream is to close the tour where our vision first began – on the Brooklyn Bridge in celebration of its reopening after extensive renovations.

Human Harp is supported by Queen Mary University of London and funded by EPSRC.

Check out the Human Harp site here.

Incredible scroll drawings created inside a moving car by Carl Krull

carlkrull-01 carlkrull-02 carlkrull-03 carlkrull-04 carlkrull-05 carlkrull-06

A series of incredible scroll drawings by Danish artist Carl Krull. The obsessiveness of the line work is impressive, but what’s more impressive is that these were drawn, line by line in the passenger seat of a car, during a road trip across the United States. Every bump in the road was incorporated into the drawings.
