Momentos músicales deliciosos
Peter Fuss an artist known for his edgy and sharp attitude, illegally posts his art on billboards to portray the social and political issues around him.
Not afraid to speak his mind on politics or the relationship between religion and art. Peter Fuss fleshes out his work with deep meaning and a simplistic result. Entitled ‘This Means Peace ‘ his work was first placed in Gdansk, Poland in January 2008 at a railway station. The two billboards, use his signature minimalist typography and feature Arabic writing with an explained translation underneath that reads “This Means Love” and “This Means Peace.”. Fuss’ message was that people should think carefully about the widespread beliefs after the 9/11 attacks that all that is Arab is dangerous. He questions the stereotypes that shackle a group of people and challenges it with the thought provoking use of typography.
Glow Sticks #1
With a nature documentarian’s eye, photographer and sculptor Thomas Jackson builds and photographs swarms of mundane objects. Plates, glow sticks, cheese balls and cups seem to float and flutter in uniform formations, mimicking the patterns of delicate hummingbirds and butterflies. Jackson seeks to minimize the role of digital editing in his work; he builds and hangs the arrangements of objects in natural settings, only using Photoshop to remove the evidence of the sculptures’ skeletons.
