red caballo
"the photographic series entitled augustus, by spanish photographer duo “red caballo” (maria cavaller and marc roig blesa), occupies a significant place in the ongoing tradition of exchange between photography and the human body—a body that red caballo has been photographing for the last five years, in the month of august only (a period corresponding, in the northern hemisphere, to the summer holidays). the two photographers confined their activity to the european union, including its recent eastern members. sharing a single camera on a shoulder strap, they concentrated on tourist spots (in italy, the UK, romania, bulgaria, hungary…) for this "project in progress", as a result of which the EU became a homogenous territorial and cultural entity with a collective identity—in visual terms at least—for the duration of the summer." see more here.[all red caballo. from the series augustus.]

kristin posehn
kristin posehn's fascinating metropolis project. as she explains "metropolis was founded in 1910 as a planned city in nevada, usa. a group of investors incorporated as the pacific reclamation company purchased 40,000 acres of remote, high desert land. the land was to be partially irrigated and resold for farming. a one-mile square city plan was laid out with modern conveniences rare in the rural west, including sidewalks, electricity, and two showpiece buildings. for the settlers who invested in metropolis, these two splendid multi-storey brick structures embodied the security of their family’s future. the pacific reclamation company had an acute business sense, and used every means at its disposal to cultivate an image of metropolis as a desirable, modern, fertile and permanent settlement. metropolis was promoted heavily throughout the western states and canada via advertising, a brochure and newspaper. the company built a dam and reservoir with plans to irrigate 30,000 acres; negotiated with the southern pacific railroad to build an extension from the transcontinental railroad into metropolis; and maintained an onsite demonstration farm with luxuriant crops of oats, apples, corn, beans, beets and so on. a sagebrush standing six feet high, with a trunk the size of a small tree, was proudly displayed in the offices of the company as testament to the astonishing fertility of the soil. settlers, many with no prior experience in farming, moved their families across the country on the company’s promises of wealth and prosperity. however, all was not as it seemed...." read/see more about the project right here.[all kristin posehn. from the series metropolis. 2008.]

christina seely
work from christina seely's 'lux' project documenting the artificial glow produced by major cities in the united states, western europe, and japan. "this project is inspired by the disconnect between the immense beauty produced by man-made light and the complexity of what this light represents....for most of human history, man-made light has signified hope and progress within local and global arenas. in this project, light also paradoxically denotes regression or transgression--an index of the complex negative human impacts on the health and future of the planet." see more here.[all christina seely. from the series lux. top to bottom: metropolis 48°52’N2°19’E (paris). metropolis 35°00’N135°45’E (kyoto). metropolis 35°10’N136°50’E (nagoya).]

daniel everett
daniel everett's 'building a more meaningful existence'. as he explains: "for this project i used a graphics editor built into an early arcade game to convert spam emails i had received into a virtual landscape. by reconfiguring the graphics editor interface to accept keystrokes as input, i was able to build these landscapes solely by transcribing the spam messages and compiling them. for this piece i specifically chose spam messages that promised me a more meaningful life, increased happiness, and a greater sense of self-worth." see more here.[all daniel everett. from the series building a more meaningful existence.]

anna lundh
swedish artist anna lundh's 'hollywood internet.' as she explains about the project, "a collage of footage from various hollywood movies from mid-90s and on, where internet is portrayed. what is shown is obviously not the real internet, but rather a meta internet, fabricated to work in favor of a certain plot or narrative. the imagery isn't necessarily very authentic, yet we have no difficulty interpreting this imaginary aesthetic." see more here.[all anna lundh. stills from the video collage hollywood internet.]
