Jan Kempenaers – Spomenik #18
In the 1960s, Yugoslavian president Josip Broz Tito commissioned somewhere around 100 regional artists to create these massive concrete sculptures celebrating the courage of communist Yugoslavia in World War II. After the fall of communism, locals viewed them more as symbols of Tito’s oppression and have largely tried to forget about them.
Photographer Jan Kempenaers spent three years documenting what remains of them in modern day Croatia, Serbia, Slovenia, Bosnia, Montenegro and Macedonia.

Takahiro Iwasaki - Out of Disorder (2013)

"At first glance, Iwasaki’s created world Out of Disorder looks a bit odd and doesn’t really make much sense. It seems to be erected out of nowhere: microscopic sculptures are randomly placed amongst the most banal everyday objects such as rolls of tape, a messy towel, or a bunch of sprawled tooth brushes. The tiny detailed miniatures look like real life shrunken objects such as wonder wheels, electricity pylons, etc. The artist even carves topographical maps on thick grey or blue electric tape.

But if you take a closer look, you’ll see that the intricate and almost impossibly small symbols of modern civilization, combined with random everyday objects, create unexpected urban landscapes. Out of Disorder represents our world and how civilization simply occurs surrounded by chaos.”

Blood Orange finally* has a new album coming out. Can’t wait.

* By “finally,” I mean it’s obviously really hard to make an album and he’s been producing everyone’s music lately and he doesn’t owe me anything, but I’m really happy there’s going to be a new Blood Orange album. That’s all.
