Polly Borland: Babies Are Us

by Christina Catherine Martinez
“That’s a potty mark.” Polly Borland points at a large photograph of a doughy ass, the flesh marked not just by the flecks and blotches of middle age, but a large pink welt at the center. It’s from sitting on a child’s toilet-training seat, and, for the practitioners of paraphilic infantilism (also known as adult baby syndrome) that Borland spent years seeking and photographing in the early 90s, it’s as much a badge of recherché sexual appetite as a sub’s whip marks.   Polly...

Printing Paris: The Route (Part 1)

by Shoshana Kessler
Paris: a Poem (1919), employing a combination of traditional and modern printing techniques. The blog will feature small essays following her research on the poem and Mirrlees as she resets this forgotten masterwork.   In her essay “Street Haunting,” Virginia Woolf notes the joy of the aesthetic stroll; an outwards facing wander throughout a city, concerned with “[t]he content of surfaces only.” This is the eye that capitalism preys upon—the Sohos and Saint Germains of the world. And yet,... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? I aim to bring awareness to a concept or cause that doesn’t get the airtime it deserves. The constant stimulation and force-fed nature of our society distracts us from what is truly important in keeping life on Earth alive and well.  Most of the work I make is an emotional response to an injustice I’ve witnessed in everyday life or the media; it raises up a voice that doesn’t always get heard or noticed. My goal is to encourage... [more]

Wednesday Web Artist of the Week: William Wolfgang Wunderbar

by Christian Petersen
William Wolfgang Wunderbar is an internet art enigma. No one knows this artist’s gender, nationality or even if they are one person or multiple people working under the same name. What is known is that they could well be the most prolific artist on the internet. Wunderbar produces a constant stream of work, uploading it everyday, sometimes multiple times a day. When the work is seen as a whole it begins to feel like they are trying to distill the entirety of the internet and social media into a... [more]

Designing Resistance in Poland: How a Simple Poster Became a Viral Symbol of Protest

by Christian Petersen
Luka Rayski is a Polish artist, illustrator, and designer. In 2016 he was asked to contribute a piece of work on the subject of democracy to a project called Demokracja Ilustrowana (Democracy Illustrated). The poster he designed has rapidly become the ubiquitous symbol of the resistance against the expanding influence of the far right in Polish politics. Rayski’s design brilliantly deconstructs the word  (constitution) highlighting, in the colors of the Polish flag, the words for “you” and “me”... [more]

  What are you trying to communicate with your work? My work creates absolute, non-hierarchical situations. In that way, I hope my audiences see/experience absolute, non-hierarchical situations which they might never experience in their everyday lives, and I hope these experiences have a positive effect on their lives. Hierarchy and sign are social byproducts which are derived from a male-dominated history. Because signs decide the class structure between objects and persons, I... [more]
