The Story Behind the Photographs of Stevie Nicks With Veils on the Roof of Her House in Venice Beach, 1981

Stevie Nicks from Fleetwood Mac stands in the ocean breeze with her trademark flowy dress sleeves rippling dramatically over her head. The photographs were taken by Neal Preston on the roof of Stevie’s condo in Venice Beach, CA during a shoot for People Magazine.

According to Preston, the wind was so strong, one of his assistants literally had to hold Stevie down by her boots.

“She was living in Venice, California, at the time and she had a condo on the top floor of a six-story building right on the sand in Venice Beach and we had a great shoot, she couldn’t have been easier. But I still wanted that one last killer photograph and I said almost at the same time as she said: ‘Why don’t we go up on the roof and shoot as the sun is going down?’ I thought it was a fantastic idea.

“She had put on this white outfit with long sleeves of fabric that really caught the wind like a sail on a sailboat. The second I put the camera to my eye the wind starts kicking up. She is posing and the sleeves are going all over the place, and I realize about three frames in that the wind is going to be blowing so hard that one gust and she could be blown right off the side of the building, six stories down, which would have ruined Time Life’s insurance department’s day.

“There was only one thing to do because we were getting great photos and the sun waits for no man and it was going down. So I made an assistant of mine lie on his stomach out of frame and I said ‘You hold on to that white boot — you do not let go.’ And that is what he did. She stayed in one place and we got great pictures. But that is why you don’t see her boots in the pictures. There could be no full-length shot.”

Preston grew up in Queens, New York. He went to Forest Hills High, the same school that spawned The Ramones. He was already photographing bands and set to go to the Philadelphia College of Art when he realized the career he had chosen didn’t need a degree.

“The day was absolutely intoxicating, and the next afternoon a bouquet of flowers arrived at my house with a note thanking me for a ‘magical shoot.’ She’s a friend for life and one of the most creative people I’ve ever met.”

Phosphorescent Glass Sculptures Illuminate in Presence of People

In an ongoing series of conceptual artworks, Japanese artist Rui Sasaki creates stunning phosphorescent glass sculptures to ‘record and contain sunshine’.

“I do not get much sunshine in Toyama. Living in a cloudy environment helped me realize how vital sunshine is for me both mentally and physically. How can I bottle and release sunshine in glass? How can I visualize sunshine? Can I transfer sunshine from here to there?

Each thin phosphorescent glass bubble is charged by a solarium light when nobody is in the space where the work is installed. When someone enters, the solarium light switches off and the thin phosphorescent glass bubbles illuminate the space. The illumination slowly diminishes over time, and the space slowly grows darker and darker the longer a viewer stays there,” she said.

入れないだとぅ~!改修工事のため家に入れないことにブチ切れるハスキー犬

改装工事の為家の中に入れないハスキーのブチ切れ
 この日、家の中では改修工事が行われており、一定時間中に入ることができなかった。飼い主と共に外で待機しなければならなかったハスキーのオークリーだが、入れないとなると入りたくてしかたがない。

 玄関から入ろうとするも飼い主に止められ、大騒ぎしてまた玄関に。更に止められると庭を駆け回っての大暴れ。

 これこそがハスキーらしさなのかもしれないし、そうでもないのかもしれない。  続きを読む

“Trans A.M.”: The Superb 3D Surreal Digital Art and VR Sculptures by Elena Romenkova

Elena Romenkova is a digital artist from St Petersburg, currently based in Vienna.

With a melange of glitch sculptures and rendered surrealistic images, the virtual space “beyond the mind” represents a transitional state between dream and reality that comes from the unconscious. Shapes and colors are not only aspects of beauty, they also have an inner sense and meanings that are understandable on an unconscious level.

Human bodies are transformed and modified here by various 3D modeling methods or data manipulation (glitching). Glitching techniques always bring unpredictable results. These shape transformations give 3D sculptures a new aesthetic and meaning. The digital world absorbs all sides of human activity, where a person can have a different face, a different life. It also changes the mind and the state of the psyche.
