Prolific Japanese artist Nagi Noda has created some awe inspiring works, from her short films to her photography to her fashion line but I think it is safe to say these hats take the cake. Noda created these hats using the models own hair so all you need is a blow up picture of a dolphin and a can of hair spray to complete your Friday night ensemble. Check out the pictures up close here.
xo, Alison. Ed. note. Whats tragic is that this brilliant artist passed away in September of last year at age 35 due to complications from a car accident. Read More

I'll admit: I don't really get modern art. And I especially don't get Heide Hatry's art.
Hatry is an artist who sculpts using clay and raw meat. In one series, Meat after Meat Joy (Meat Joy was a 1964 performance piece and I really don't get the art of performance art), Hatry created an American flag out of meat, complete with maggots. Okay, fine, it lacks subtlety, but let's assume she was going for a blunt and shocking political statement. Read More

So maybe you think Diane Arbus, Lee Friedlander, and Larry Clark were some amazing photographers. You probably think they had an amazing eye, sense of composition, appreciation for color, and so on. But when you look at the incredible found photo collection ofÂ the mysterious Superbomba , you may reconsider. Or, atÂ least, you'll have a newfound appreciation for the importance of editing in the art of photography. Superbomba's gallery of found images are so gorgous, so full of meaning, so memorable, they would make John Szarkowski proud. Read More

I spent last weekend at the New York Comic Con, and as per usual, had a wonderful time. Comic cons might get a bad rap, but for me, they're just a place where people can unabashedly celebrate the things they love about comic books, sci-fi and fantasy, and more.
Now the video games have taken over large chunks of the con floor, it's a little bit harder to get around, and Artist's Alley--the section of the floor where artists set up shop, sell prints, and do sketches for fans--seemed smaller than usual. Still, the best part of the con was the panel discussions. Read More

If you haven't heard of the incredible book Handmade Nation by now, then you are certainly missing out! Written by Faythe Levine and Cortney Heimerl published back in October, the book has since become a documentary capturing the burgeoning craft and DIY movement across America. Currently there are screenings across the country (and other countries), and this week the flick is debuting in the big apple. The premiere screening on Thursday is completely sold out, but there are dates following on the 14th and 15th at the Museum of Arts and Design. Check out more info here. Read More
