Futo Akiyoshi creates this series of leg paintings, which resemble flags. We can detect a possible subtext here of cultural diversity,to these images he attaches the suggestive titles “leg of woman who dislikes me”,A,B,C,D etc this opens an experiential narrative which adds to their heterogenous, enigmatic nature.

BIG BANG BIG BOOM – the new wall-painted animation by BLU from blu on Vimeo.
Amazing mind trips from BLU, if your not familiar with his work he makes monumental wall animations that spread and sprawl across the urban landscape. Endlessly quirky and creative the mind is given free reign to riff as it pleases. The buildings and walls are the canvas and also props in the narrative,the paintings morph and melt across this framework as we see the city in a different light.
Brooklyn-based artist Francis Hollenkamp created an art installation comprised of 10,000 little green and brown plastic toy soldiers! The miniature military forces are lined up evenly into squared rows and columns, separated by weapon of choice. Hollenkamp’s intention with this piece is to present a visual representation of a large group that is usually an abstract figure in our minds.
Even looking from afar, the soldiers blend and camouflage into each other, as if they are one entity. It is only upon closer inspection that we begin to recognize each individual soldier. It’s very difficult to manufacture an image in one’s own mind of a statistical number, especially when that number is large. For example, there are seven billion people in the world (and counting), but how does one calculate and visualize a number of that magnitude?
