Decommissioned fighter planes in the incongruous setting of the Duveen Galleries at Tate Britain by Fiona Banner.

Fiona Banner is best known for her ‘wordscapes’, written transcriptions of the frame-by-frame action in Hollywood war films. She has long been fascinated by the emblem of the fighter plane. Her compulsion to grasp the uncomfortable resonances of these war machines has produced a growing archive of material. From pencil drawings to newspaper cuttings and Airfix model collections of all the fighter planes currently in service, the modesty of her works often contrasts with the heroic connotations of her subject… more

Guardians of Russian Art Meseums | Andy Freeberg

Under - Art, Inspiration, Photography

Long fascinated with the gallery and museum worlds, Andy Freeberg often turns his camera on the dealers, gallery patrons, artists, museum guards, and their interplay with the works of art themselves. His project Guardians, about the women that guard the art in Russian museums, won Photolucida’s Critical Mass book award and was published in 2010.

In the art museums of Russia, women sit in the galleries and guard the collections. When you look at the paintings and sculptures, the presence of the women becomes an inherent part of viewing the artwork itself. I found the guards as intriguing to observe as the pieces they watch over. In conversation they told me how much they like being among Russia’s great art. A woman in Moscow’s State Tretyakov Gallery Museum said she often returns there on her day off to sit in front of a painting that reminds her of her childhood home. Another guard travels three hours each day to work, since at home she would just sit on her porch and complain about her illnesses, “as old women do.” She would rather be at the museum enjoying the people watching, surrounded by the history of her country.

Andy Freeberg was born in New York City where he learned at an early age to be a critical observer of the world and the people in it. After studying at the University of Michigan, he began his professional photography career in New York taking portraits for such publications as The Village Voice, Rolling Stone, Time, and Fortune, photographing the likes of Michael Jackson, Bill Gates, and Neil Young. Freeberg has recently emerged on the contemporary art scene as a wry commentator on the art industry itself. Freeberg’s work is in many public and private collections including the Museum of Fine Arts Boston, The Portland Art Museum, the George Eastman House, and the Museum of Fine Arts Houston.

Lectori Salutem by Jeroen Verhoeven

Under - Art, Design, Industrial Design, Inspiration

Lectori Salutem (Polished stainless steel) – 2010

Jeroen Verhoeven fuses the fantastical with the functional to create design pieces of fragile beauty, wrought by technological and industrial production. The narratives of enchantment and innocence in Verhoeven’s works (as well as in the pieces made by his design firm Demakersvan) are achieved through an intensive method involving computer-generated models, machine manufacture, and the artist’s own hands.

Interactive ‘Starry Night’ by Petros Vrellis

Under - Art, Inspiration, Technology

Petros Vrellis brings Vincent Van Gogh’s famous ‘Starry Night’ to life. The user can interact with the animation with music responding to the flow. The whole piece is put together with the help of openFrameworks.

This interactive animation is also available on iPad as an app – just in case you really fancy interacting with it rather than watching it move.
