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]
Daniel Temkin is currently showing new work from his Glitchometry series at NADA with the new media powerhouse, Transfer Gallery.
Although Glitchometry could be described using the fashionable phrase “glitch art,” it bears little resemblance to what we have come to associate with that genre. Temkin’s talents in programming have given him ability to create his own unique systems for manipulating imagery through code. Although the technical aspects of Glitchometry’s creation... [more]
At Frieze New York, look out for livestock this year—Maurizio Cattelan is putting a donkey in a room with a chandelier, while Nick Bastis is doing an installation with snails. If you smell dog food, it just means you’ve reached the artwork of British artist and poet Heather Phillipson, who has created a giant “spinal cord,” as she calls it, which connects throughout various outposts throughout the fair.
Opening May 4, Frieze Projects, curated by Cecilia Alemani, features Ph... [more]
Private Collection came to be after almost 3 decades of tucking away personal photographs of my life with JB. Kodak envelopes, photo hut mailings, boxes, albums, digital discs, and finally of course, the exploding spawn of digital devices which seem to spew images like broken water mains- at least in my hands they do. All these moments we file away in the black hole of whatever type of cloud we choose today, or, fire them off into the smediaverse for our own purposes.
The works presented he... [more]
Project "Current state" represents an archive of personal belongings of the artist through photographs. Taking object created in the process of mass production, is a general act which is characteristic of the process of creating personal collection. Personal things in this case are referred to as "objects" are listed by numbers, stored in a particular category. Through this process it becomes depersonalized, transformed into photographic documents that resemble examples from the catalog of consumer... [more]
This work is based on collecting various damages of skin, of people who are in some sort of contact with the author. In this way, through photography, and brief notes of the same, I have done the archiving process of human skin as portraits through rejecting any kind of emotion. The work is conceived as a kind of the scrapbook that is constantly upgraded.

We have discussed the rapidly growing intersection between new media art and feminism with a number of artists in previous columns. This week we take a deeper look at that phenomenon in an interview with artist, writer and facilitator Angela Washko who is at the forefront of the movement. She famously interviewed the notorious pick-up-artist Roosh V for her project Banged which resulted in an overload of attention for her, both positive and horribly negative. Washko’s work consistently tackl... [more]
Recently exhibited at Harlem School of the Arts' freshly renovated Gallery Space, Fabiola Jean-Louis' Rewriting History is an interdisciplinary series that serves up a ride through antiquity and imagination. Modern period dresses, fashioned almost entirely from paper, become actors in a photographic essay that challenges notions of reality, time and space. Visual, sculptural and performative at once, the artist creates a world that embodies an alternate past where people of color might have live... [more]
According to her CV, Sara Ludy “currently lives and works everywhere.” Her art reflects this notion through its eerily universal aesthetics that are somehow simultaneously alien and familiar. Ludy’s work has always stood out from her contemporaries in the new media scene through her explorations of virtual places and objects that exist in the spaces between architecture, dreams, and the digital universe. For the past three years Ludy has been developing an expansive 3D archite... [more]
With the phrase “World is evolving!” I am not only pointing towards the technology advancement but also the aftermath. With the advancement in technology, we too have changed our working tips and tricks. Yes, we agree with the fact that we are inclined to new technology and taking few good steps to make our business and brand reach to the targeted audience.
In fact saying inclined to new technology we should say We are going 3D! isn’t so?
I am here talking about how Virtual Real... [more]

Imagine you have a daughter. She is a good kid -- almost 20 years old, hasn't ever been in trouble. Her friends, family, teachers, acquaintances all describe her with words like sweet, funny, sporty, loyal, wouldn't hurt a fly -- all things you might find in any high-school yearbook.

After just a few weeks in the country, she is accused... [more]
New York based artist Leah Schrager is known for using overt eroticism in her new media work. She uses her own sexualized image to wildly subvert the concept of the "selfie" while making a vital statement about feminism and the "self" in the digital age.
Schrager first came to prominence under the pseudonym Sarah White, better known as the "Naked Therapist." This bold combination of internet-based performance art and genuine healing therapy achieved notoriety because Schrager (as Sarah White) and the p... [more]
Currently under production by the Oscar winning companies Breakthru Films and Trademark Films, the animated film Loving Vincent delves into the life and art of Vincent Van Gogh.
