You can probably remember the first time you video chatted with a friend or family member. Technology was suddenly as awesome as you’d always wanted it to be. But not everyone got in on the tech boom. Some older people had a hard time adjusting to the new fangled world wide web and the capabilities […]
If you’re a music lover always on the go, you’d know the benefits of having a reliable and compact device to listen to tunes on. That’s where the HTC One mini comes in. We got our hands on this nifty device in the Lost At E Minor office recently and I was wowed by how big and bright the screen was and how slim (and, dare I say, attractive) the phone was itself.
If you love surfing or you think you’d like to try it but you’re deathly afraid of losing your limbs to a great white, fear no more. Australian company Shark Attack Mitigation Systems has your back. Collaborating with the University of Western Australia, the team came up with two different designs. The Warning Pattern was […]

It’s an eye, it’s a silhouette, it’s a molecular cosmology! Actually no, it’s artist J.D. Doria’s awesome ink-photography-technology combination that makes tiny images look like the nucleus of universal structures as we know them. Doria uses a combination of acrylic, ink, glass colours and water on paper, then captures fragments of these amorphous creatures with […]
Taking the feel of ancient industrial machinery and mixing it with technology of today, Mark Crummett has created a series of images that place human action figures beside massive machine landscapes. The title, ‘Ghosts in the Machine’, refers to the tiny humans beings as small spirits that enhabit the machines. Crummett turns the idea of […]

My art is a combination of traditional techniques, like pencil and watercolor, with digital retouching and coloring. It is an exploration of vivid, rich color, and the detail and textures of nature and technology, the jarring of the analogue against the digital, along with the new spectrums, emotions and realities created from this unique relationship.
I know many people have strong opinions about how important ‘the artist’s hand’ is in a piece of art. I think pulling polygons is not considered as pure as old-fashioned sculpting with hand tools. Or using assistants, for that matter. German band Kraftwerk always tried to be in the forefront of technology. It works when it’s fresh. But […]
Sitting in a Los Angeles doughnut shop around 1am, we started forming the ideas that would eventually become the video for Overfeeling of Controls. Between the spawning of an idea and its execution, there were numerous visits to other doughnut shops and botanicas. For a filmaker working on a budget that is non-existant, securing locations is like a scratch and win lottery victory.
My latest body of work has been about interconnectivity through technology and exploring hypothetical visualizations of these digital realms through painting, 3D animation, and collage. I am particularly interested in recreating scan glitches and digital brush strokes with oil paint. A lot of my work stems from my obsession with science fiction, and specifically for […]
Quintetto is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call invisible concerts of everyday life. The vertical movements of the five fish in the aquarium is captured by a video camera that […]
