Hello frends! I am an artist. My roots take place in St.Petersburg, which has great architecture, culture and history that influenced me once and forever. Today, in the times of technical progress, mass production and new artificial materials I search for inspiration in the foundation of the Arts - old Russian Orthodox icons, Renaissance and folk cultures. I seek out look for new shapes and images within my themes using different materials, but my favorite is glass for its plasticity and abi... [more]
Kazakhstan is caught between worlds. A prominent part of Alexander the Great’s Hellenistic Empire, the territory served as a middle ground between east and west—a crossroads where traders, warlords, and conquerors projected their will, forever altering the landscape and people of the region. Most recently the 60-year Soviet occupation, which ended in 1991, left an indelible mark on the Central Asian nation.

Last week, UC Berkeley's Berkeley Art Museum / Pacific Film Archive opened its new building to guest. Thursday was the gala opening day for donors; Friday, opening day for students; Saturday for members of the Museum/Archive; and Sunday, a community open house. I visited the Museum on 30 January, Saturday and it was nice to see so many members and their families and friends exploring the space and artworks on display. The place was full of excitement and high energy but the visitors d... [more]

"Japanese photographer Osamu Jinguji discusses his arresting black and white street photography, and the many career changes that lead him to his current practice. Jinguji expresses fundamental human emotions and philosophical ideas through his work, which focuses on themes of discovery and spontaneity." [more]
There is perennial tension between the line of “progress” and infinite irretrievability and the circle (cycle) of repeating patterns; humans, in ongoing rebellion against the forward arrow, use all available tools to create and preserve the always-receding past. Closing on January 10, two exhibitions at Montreal's Musée d'art contemporain (MAC) work together to acutely frame their own dialogue about time, materiality, and the role of the museum in protecting and destroying it.

There are several versions of reality, a number of that I've coated in previous essays. I might wish to focus this point of what I will term 'single-path Virtual reality' versus 'multi-path Interactive Virtual Reality'. Some definitions and examples are so as. A single-path reality encompasses a distinctive starting, a novel middle, associated an distinctive ending, and if you rewind the clock, flip back the book or e-book to page one, or begin the film once more at the start (or the optical disc...

It's not hard to understand why so many people write off art of the kind 26-year-old Molly Soda makes: to date, she's best known for works such as dating a giant teddy bear, and "leaking" her own nude selfies (Should I Send This?). In the artist's new London solo, the tropes of hypergirly net art are all here, unabashedly IRL: glitter, miniature unicorns, stickers, glitches, and iPhones with cracked screens. The walls are painted, of course, pink. But there's much more to Molly Soda's work than I had thought havin... [more]

It is hard to take any exhibition with a grandiose title such as Photography Since the Millennium seriously, but then again, we are just fifteen years into this new millennium.
And there have not been any major strides in photography since the new millennium except for, well, the death of analogue, and video is accessible to all. Goodbye film, hello pixels. Has there been one year since the new millennium that has not seen a new release of cameras with enhanced numbers of pixels? It is the mega... [more]
When I was younger, my parents spent an exorbitant amount of time shopping at the department store Sears. It was one of the kid-in-tow errands I most detested. As a child, I considered this habitat overwhelming and exhausting: the overzealous salespeople, the crowds, the smells of new products and open boxes, the corny advertisements, the endless special offers. From entrance to exit, accompanying my parents on their routine department store escapade was a first-hand lesson in what I now know to be... [more]
