The Flash Forward Festival

We had a great time at the Flash Forward Festival!  The variety of photography was impressive and the lectures were very informative.  We browsed mixed media photography, still life photography, model photography, scenic travel photography, and more.  Ana Kapodistria's 'Frachto Birches' photograph was just one of our many favorites.  Her vibrant photo was perfectly mounted on a wooden panel and coated in resin.  We spent the day browsing the walls and looking through the photo books on the tables in the gallery.  Not only did we get to see all of these photographs up close, we got to take home a beautiful hardcover Flash Forward Festival book.  We are definitely planning to attend next year.

OK Go's "Last Leaf" Music Video - Created With The Help Of Boston Based Talent

Boston based Nadeem Mazen directed this incredibly creative music video for OK Go with his friend Ali Mohammed.  With endless amounts of laser engraved pieces of toast, and with the help of a group of talented artists, they produced a very successful music video.   We loved this video so much, we had to share. Enjoy!

Anthony Greaney presents Paul Pescador

Anthony Greaney presents Paul Pescador's first east coast solo exhibition: 6,7 or 9. This is the third part of The Number Project, which explores the relationship between numbers and social relationships. The project as a whole aligns conceptual logics and rules with day-to-day trauma and personal experiences to create photographs, artist books and films. The first part 1, 1 1/2 2 (Human Resources, Los Angeles, 2011), dealt with the relationship between self and a potential other body. The second part, 3,4,5 and 8 (UC Irvine Art Gallery, 2012) dealt with various group dynamics, 3-being the smallest form of a group, 4 and 5 being domestic numbers, and 8-being an orgy of bodies. 6,7 or 9 (2013) exists somewhere in between 5 and 8, creating artwork that disjoints the chronology of the project.

Pescador photographs materials such as construction paper, yarn, and other everyday objects. The resulting photographs are collaged and re-photographed multiple times so that the constructed bod…
