Like comic books and films have taught us for ages: when you’re planning your heist, it’s important to be agile and flexible. Why? Well, once you have the ridiculously pricey piece of art, or highly-valued diamond, you’ve got to be able to jump over and under all of the security measures put in place.

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.

For the occasion of his first solo show at Joseph Gross Gallery, The Map Is Not The Territory, opening September 11, 2014, Brooklyn artist Ted Lawson will début a new series of work consisting of three dimensional wall mounted pieces and freestanding sculptures milled from MDF (a wood fiber based material commonly used in commercial fabrication), brass plate etchings, and three large scale drawings rendered in the artist’s own blood fed intravenously to a CNC (computer numerical control) machine using computer technology akin to a 3D printer.
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.

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 […]
