Torkil Gudnason Photographer Interview: Hot Bodies & Electric Blossoms (Colorburst 002)

Woman’s Hour – Conversations LP Music Videos & Visual Branding

The Radical Capacity of Glitch Art: Expression through an Aesthetic Rooted in Error

"[The] purpose of my glitch art isn't to destroy my photographs, but to expose the mechanisms beneath the surface, to turn an image inside out and expose its entrails, to invite viewers to immerse themselves in this seemingly undecipherable space, to find reconstituted forms, the ghosts of an image, or a disembodied breast.

Massimiliano Grandoni Artist Interview: Expressing the Poetry of Quantifiable Matter

There is a somber weight inherent within the images of Italian visual artist Massimiliano Grandoni. With emotive composites of illustration and digital collage, he reveals eloquently phrased questions relating to physicality, to purpose and to categorized identity. The represented human characters appear to share a single world not only in aesthetic, but through essential symbolism...
