Last night, my good friend and fellow photographer Ryan Faubert, introduced me to some stunning work by Brian Oglesbee, whose fractaline matrices encapsulate and reflect the endless beauty of the self-organizing universe. Created in a single moment with no contrivances of the darkroom or Photoshop, Oglesbee reveals an enlightened mind “too rare in today’s dryly observational art photography” (Jeff Wignall, American Photo, March 2007, p77).
An inspiration to many, he recently was asked by Julie Taymor to collaborate on the making of The Tempest,
a film I know I’ll be watching soon!
Edit: We skipped through scenes of the film today, and felt that Oglesbee’s influence on the film was nowhere near as striking as that of his solo work. Save for a few literal allusions to Aquatics, the heavy use of CGI made it rather unclear where he was asked to leave his mark.
this is what i love: photographs that dwell in the realm of the fantastic and surreal - where our spirit reveals extraordinary beauty that rests beyond reality.
Oh how you make such nice things that I enjoy! Enjoy the mini tour through Olafur Eliasson’s installation, “Your Chance Encounter” at the Kanazawa Museum of Contemporary Art.

- ANTHONY McCALL
British artist Anthony McCall was a key figure in the avant-garde London Filmmakers Co-operative in the 1970s. After moving to New York in 1973, McCall developed his ‘solid light’ film series, conceiving the ‘Line Describing a Cone’. Creating simple projections that emphasis the sculptural qualities of a beam of light. At the end of the 1970s, McCall withdrew from making art. Over 20 years later, he acquired a new dynamic and re-opened his ‘solid light’ series, this time using digital projectors instead of 16mm film.
Frontier artist Olafur Eliasson and the brilliant manifestations of his spirit. Here’s a chance to wet the toes that are your eyes into Olafur’s immersive environments, and the super sensory experience.
