Pom Pom Mirror is a new work by New York based artist Daniel Rozin made up of nearly 1000 puffs of (imitation) fur in two tones. Each puff is fixed to a small motor and able to rotate to display its black or white side based on the information given to it by a series of sensors.
One of my very favourite graphic novel artists, Ross Campbell, revealed last month that she is transgender, and has been transitioning for the the past year, and is now Sophie/Sophia Campbell.
We've decided to kick off a new subkinja blog dedicated to the artwork we create here at Gawker Media. A lot of the content you'll find will be shared posts from around the network with images the art team has created, curated into one place. Occasionally, we'll post something else we just like.

"Damnit, Kent, if you don't stop jerkin' off down there I won't have a floor to walk on!"
Big Eyes is the story of Margaret and Walter Keane.

I am woefully undereducated about Canadian visual artists apart from Haida art, please please please share some favorites in the comments if you have some? The themey visual art posts are stronger and more awesome when we share. That said, my google-fu pulled up some new favorite images.
In his writings on dream-displacement and distortion, Freud stated that while dreaming, trivial experiences, ideas, and images will be displaced and substituted with something that does not apparently fit.

Morning all! I'm here to answer questions you might have about the art known as illustration and the wonderful world of the art gallery.
I'm not going to embed it because the film archive is over an hour long and there are lots of supporting materials, but Yoko Ono is tweeting photos to celebrate the 45th Anniversary of her and John Lennon's Montreal Bed-in and there is a free film of it on ImaginePeace.
