(Photo courtesy of SlightlyNorth on Flickr) If you’ve been to the U-District in Seattle lately, you’ve probably seen a building covered with all sorts of graffiti on the corner of Roosevelt Ave. and 50th Ave. This is the handiwork of Seattle’s art collective, The Free Sheep Foundation, and dozens of Seattle artists, including Kinoko, No...Read...

Artist Jane Lackey Maps Out Conversations.

On first glance, it might be easy to write off the work of Seattle artist Jane Lackey as mumbo-jumbo, but when one studies the materials she uses, her interests in neuroscience, genetics, and speech patterns, pieces like those from the above series, Survey, seem to make a bit more sense. Using paint, tape, and stickers,...Read...

Haack: The King of Techno (2005) Documentary Review

Can Elephants & Orangutans Can Paint Better Than You?

The Puget Sound Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) will be hosting a jolly good animal art show at the Art/Not Terminal Gallery to help benefit the 2009 AAZK-International Congress of Zookeeping Conference. If paintings by human beings don’t...Read...

Goth Cruise (2008) IFC Documentary Film Review

My first, and probably only, cruise experience was two months ago. It sailed through the Northern European Baltic Sea countries, like Norway, Sweden, Poland, and Russia, and it epitomized all that I hate about traveling: gluttony, closemindedness, and lack of desire to really get to know other countries.

Rewind Short Film Review (2007)

One of the best shorts I’ve ever seen, Rewind is a complete mind fuck that is confusing at first and genius upon completion.
