"And so, faces smeared with good factory muckóplastered with metallic waste, with senseless sweat, with celestial sootówe, bruised, our arms in slings, but unafraid, declared our high intentions to all the living of the earth:"
Futurists...arrogant, sexist, cocky young Italian boys. Incredible painters. Everything is nicked from the Bob Osborn's excellent Futurism site.

dhtml art installation
My fellow LXIS man Joe just put up a small installation of his experimental DHTML art, cirrusa. It's elegant and simple and looks pretty.
One of my favorite pieces:

First there was the Peace Arch. Then there was the Peas Arch. Now comes the Plesenarch, by Rowan 'Fuzzball' Sodenkamp.
A brief interview with the artist.
Tinyblog: I'm sure my readers will want to know...what exactly is the plesenarch?
Rowan: It's just something I made up.
Tinyblog: And what does "rook:" mean?
Rowan: It means "look". Rook means look, and plesenarch means Peas Arch...it's like it's in a different language.
Tinyblog: What is being depicted here?
Rowan: It's a race. The she's the girl in the middle, and the other two people are people racing her. At the end is the trophy.
Tinyblog: Why is it in another language? Is it in another country or on another planet?
Rowan: It's on another planet that's in my imagination.
Tinyblog: Why is there a race going on underneath the plesenarch?
Rowan: it was a very bright and sunny day, and there are two suns on this planet, so they were having a race. After they do this race, then they do a bicycle race. The bicycle race actually goes through the Peas Arch.

tinyblog art exhibition
Ian seemed like an all-around troublesome rascal, so I was surprised the first time I was exposed to his artwork. Usually this consists of extremely large format collages on cardboard and a lot of shellac. His themes are often of advertising and information management, but he has a style that takes itself a little less painfully seriously than, say, Adbusters.
I first saw Maria's art more recently, when I saw this piece as she was working on it:
I was impressed and asked her if I could feature the pieces of that series on the tinyblog.
She told me that Ian and her had a show at the Bellevue City Hall (Bellevue is the largerst suburb of Seattle). When the pieces were finished, she sent me a few images.
Here are my favorites (click the image detail for a pop-up of the full image):
Thank you to Ian and Maria for letting me show their work on the tinyblog and a shout out to the very cool arts organization they're involved with: What Is Art.
