China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy
Written by Trippe   
Friday, 22 February 2013 12:24

Hate to say that it took 10 years for us to finally check out the "new" location of the Asian Art Museum, and it's much more incredible than we all had thought.

Last night we attended the preview party for the Asian Art Museum's new show China's Terracotta Warriors: The First Emperor's Legacy (Feb 22 - May 27) featuring 10 life-sized terracotta soldiers which were hand-crafted in approx. 300 BC to protect China's first Emperor, Qin Shihuang in the afterlife... In 1974 they excavated this massive site where thousands of statues were discovered where these originated.

We waited in a long line for some drinks (later discovered the shorter cafe line), we listened to the energetic Extra Action Marching Band, we checked out the incredible terracotta soldiers, but the best part was taking in just a small piece of the museum's massive collection of Asian artifacts. With only 20 minutes before the night was to conclude, we raced to the 5th floor and tripped out on the Southeast Asia collection.


Extra Action Marching Band going for it amongst the crowd. Love these guys and gals.

At the time they were buried, they were hand painted in bright colors but the paint almost instantly faded when excavated.

Easy, son.

I Encourage Everyone to Barge.
Written by Tanner B   
Thursday, 21 February 2013 15:45

What do I mean by "barge"? I mean "to do something without entirely thinking about or caring about the consequences, asking for permission, or being prepared." Which is exactly what Conner Morton and I did in Southeast Asia.

Over three months on the road (about six months for Conner) with nothing but a road in front of me, a motorbike under me, a backpack behind me, and a set of rules to live and die by. These are what made the "Harsh Barge" the grim and dirty adventure that it was. Rule #1: Never pay to sleep. That meant no hotels, hostels, motels, guesthouses, bungalows, etc. Rule #2: Only travel by motorbike (aside from necessary flights).

Those were the rules that defined the trip. The other rules—never wash white t-shirts or jeans, no shaving, no meat, no wasting beer, etc.—only made it more interesting. Sure, we got plenty of strange looks and into lots of odd situations, like when I woke up on the ground outside a hospital in Siliguri surrounded by a police officer and fifteen confused Indians; but it made the experience more real, more raw. Call us disgusting, call us over-privileged Americans, call us anything. (Just don't call us hippies.)

Illegal camping and getting drunk on beaches with prawn farmers in Vietnam, avoiding landmines and border patrol hassles in Cambodia, sexual assaults by a monk at a Buddhist temple in Thailand, sleeping in an abandoned building and waking up to AK-47's in our face in Nepal, and Conner getting hit by a car and run over by a truck in India is just a small taste of the fun that we endured on the Harsh Barge.

I'm not saying do exactly what we did—I wouldn't encourage anyone to do that. It's not for everyone, but it was for us. I'm just saying that you should go do what you want before it's too late. Before you have that career/marriage/child. Take some time off school. Quit your day job. Buy that plane ticket. Barge.

Haley Morris-Cafiero's "Wait Watchers" Series
Written by Trippe   
Wednesday, 20 February 2013 16:00

While creating an image for my Something to Weigh series, I decided to photograph myself sitting alone on the Times Square stairs to capture my solitude in a busy crowd.

After developing the film, I noticed that a man was standing behind me being photographed by an attractive blonde woman. Rather than pose for her camera, he was sneering at me behind my back. Five minutes later and at another location, another man turns his back to gawk at me while I am photographing myself sitting at a cafe table.

I have always been aware of people making faces, commenting and laughing at me about my size. I now reverse the gaze and record their reactions to me while I perform mundane tasks in public spaces. I seek out spaces that are visually interesting and geographically diverse. I try to place myself in compositions that contain feminine icons or advertisements.

Otherwise, I position myself and the camera in a pool of people... and wait. -Haley Morris-Cafiero

Golden Source Power
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 18 February 2013 14:28

Jesse Balmer, Niv Bavarsky and Michael Olivo are three Bay Area artists who started drawing together with little more than entertainment in mind. They are showing their collaborative works under the moniker Golden Source Power Three at Needles & Pens in San Francisco through March 3rd. The 3 discuss their works through email internet technology.

When did you guys first start drawing together?

JB: We started drawing together in February of 2012.

MO: I started with Niv about a month before, in late January. That was two months after I moved to Oakland.

NB: Michael emailed me one day to tell me he thinks I am "a magical man" and when he moved to Oakland we started drawing together - Jesse saw the early results online and the three of us started working as a trio about a year ago.

How do you do it?

JB: It's pretty simple. Each of us starts a drawing and we pass the three drawings to the next guy.

MO: Yea, usually consists of multiple drawings being passed around in a circular motion. Rarely is anything sketched in beforehand.

NB: It's pretty intuitive and playful - we work together in the same room, each working on something, and we rotate. We have good conversations. We do very little planning in the initial stages, but as a drawing starts to take form, we help direct each other. I'd say we all trust each other to pick up what the others are putting down.

Niv, you wanna take this time to tell all the good folks out there that you're not a girl? (Not that there's anything wrong with that)

NB: I have long flowing curly hair, and a beard.

MO: ...

JB: She does.

The pieces I've seen look very coherent, so much so that sometimes I have trouble figuring out who did what. Was that a conscious effort? Do you find yourselves adjusting the 'way' you draw to accommodate the others' sensibilities?

JB: In the beginning the drawings were significantly less coherent. We've definitely learned how to emulate bits and pieces of each others' style to make the drawings feel more structurally sound. It's pretty easy to see that evolution when you look at the work.

MO: It's similar to love-making. Tough to tell who's where sometimes.

NB: We've all absorbed little techniques from each other - one of us will make a certain kind of mark, and another will decide that kind of mark will go well in another part of the image, so this group vocabulary has started to emerge.

The Internet Has Always Been My Outlet for Anarchy - The Ryder Ripps Studio Visit
Written by Huey Crowley   
Tuesday, 12 February 2013 15:00

For those who don't know who Ryder Ripps is, here is a brief introduction- Ryder gained recognition for creating websites like Internet Archaeology (a site that salvages and presents old content such as images, flash files, and gifs from Geocities- a site that is now shut down). Ryder also created Dump.fm (alongside with Tim Baker and Scott Ostler)- a site in which users (for the most part artists) chat in real time using images and animated gifs that they either find on the net or create themselves. Aside from those sites, Ryder has created websites for artist/musician M.I.A and punk/art band Ssion.

Words & Photos: Huey Crowley

Much of Ryder's artworks are digital files, or websites, and he makes a lot of his physical work about using the Internet. It's hard to define exactly what he does because each thing he does is so different from the last and they are all special or peculiar. For example- Ryder has a site called "Where's The Pixel" in which there is a single pixel on the screen and your goal is to try and find it, or his site "Luckyplop" which is a site that you drag an image to the background and the image remains repeated until the next person comes along and changes it the same way you did.

I discovered Ryder's work because I moved in with some kids who were using Dump. They would often show me some of the images from the site and I was really impressed by what I'd seen.

Fast forward about a year and a half later (I moved to New York from Wisconsin)- I think Ryder would be a great subject for a studio visit. He said he was up for it, and on the following Sunday I went to his Manhattan apartment to visit him. My roommate gave me some Bud Lite "Lime-a-Ritas" so I brought those with me. When I got there, Ryder had Orangina and vodka or something similar and offered me some. Check out the Soundclouds in this interview to hear Ryder discuss his work, and the other stuff that we talked about. Otherwise, I'm just going to describe his studio.

Ryder's home doubles as his studio, although he also has a separate music studio in Park Slope. He had his floor painted with the same paint they use to paint the floors of aircraft hangers- this weird, shiny gray color. When I got there he was decked out in internet related garb- a Tumblr mug, Windows 95 hat and an iced-out Facebook chain he picked up from Chinatown. His studio had a very strange medical/hospitalish/sterile/futuristic feel to it, I think because of the lighting and the shiny gray floor... and the 409 and hand sanitizer on his glass table. He has a cat named Sally. Ryder would go back and forth from going on Dump.fm to dancing and rapping along with Riff Raff. It was one part studio visit/ one part fashion show/ and one part dance party. We got hungry and went for Thai food and talked about making a rap group about the Midwest. Eventually we went back to Ryder's house, and I bought some Roca Wear shoes from him. We kicked it for a while, which you can hear here- and then we went to a 711 and bought a ton of junk food, including hot dog flavored chips.

Eventually it got to be pretty late, so I had to turn in for the night and head home. Thank you Ryder for the visit.

Simon Hjermind Jensen's FIRE SHELTER
Written by Trippe   
Monday, 04 February 2013 13:22

FIRE SHELTER:01 is a personal project located at Sydhavnstippen in Copenhagen. The starting point for the design emerged from a fascination of the place. It´s a temporary project and a design experiment that wish to celebrate the place. The project has public access, and it establishes experiences of spatial and social character. In the creation of it nobody has been asked of advice, neither has it been possible for anyone to tell his or her opinion. It is simply thought of as a gift. More on this later.

You can reach the place at Sydhavnstippen after a 20 minutes bike ride from central Copenhagen. Sydhavnstippen was landfilled with building materials between 1945 and 1973. Before that it was a seabed. Since the landfill plants, bushes and trees have taken over the area, and today it´s a habitat for a variety of animals. Walking around in the area is just amazing. The “wild” appearance of the nature on top of the building materials, which are visible some places, makes you think of a “post-apocalyptic” nature. The often deserted area amplifies this.

The Death of the Artist—and the Birth of the Creative Entrepreneur
Wednesday, 21 January 2015 10:34

When works of art become commodities and nothing else, when every endeavor becomes “creative” and everybody “a creative,” then art sinks back to craft and artists back to artisans—a word that, in its adjectival form, at least, is newly popular again. Artisanal pickles, artisanal poems: what’s the difference, after all? So “art” itself may disappear: art as Art, that old high thing. Which—unless, like me, you think we need a vessel for our inner life—is nothing much to mourn.


Hard-working artisan, solitary genius, credentialed professional—the image of the artist has changed radically over the centuries. What if the latest model to emerge means the end of art as we have known it? --continue reading

Henry Gunderson at Ever Gold, SF

Ever Gold opened a new solo show by NYC based Henry Gunderson a couple Saturday nights ago and it was literally packed. So packed I couldn't actually see most of the art - but a big crowd doesn't seem like a problem. I got a good laugh at what I would call the 'cock climbing wall' as it was one of the few pieces I could see over the crowd. I haven't gotten a chance to go back and check it all out again, but I'm definitely going to as the paintings that I could get a peek at were really high quality and intruiguing. You should do the same.

Mario Wagner @Hashimoto

Mario Wagner (Berkeley) opened his new solo show A Glow that Transfers Creativity last Saturday night at Hashimoto Contemporary in San Francisco.

Serge Gay Jr. @Spoke Art

The paintings in the show are each influenced by a musician, ranging from Freddy Mercury, to Madonna, to A Tribe Called Quest and they are so stylistically consistent with each musician's persona that they read as a cohesive body of work with incredible variation. If you told me they were each painted by a different person, I would not hesitate to believe you and it's really great to see a solo show with so much variety. The show is fun, poppy, very well done, and absolutely worth a look and maybe even a listen.

Sun Milk in Vienna

With rising rent in SF and knowing mostly other young artists without capitol, I desired a way to live rent free, have a space to do my craft, and get to see more of the world. Inspired by the many historical artists who have longed similar longings I discovered the beauty of artist residencies. Lilo runs Adhoc Collective in Vienna which not only has a fully equipped artists creative studio, but an indoor halfpipe, and private artist quarters. It was like a modern day castle or skate cathedral. It exists in almost a utopic state, totally free to those that apply and come with a real passion for both art and skateboarding

"How To Lose Yourself Completely" by Bryan Schnelle

The Marsh Barge - Traveling the Mississippi River from Minnesota to the Gulf of Mexico

For some reason I thought it would be a good idea to quit my job, move out of my house, leave everything and travel again. So on August 21, 2013 I pushed a canoe packed full of gear into the headwaters of the Mississippi River in Lake Itasca, Minnesota, along with four of my best friends. Exactly 100 days later, I arrived at a marina near the Gulf of Mexico in a sailboat.
