Some interesting things from the world of art, which I’ve come across recently.
First up is the New York Times’ Touch of Evil, a series of shorts in which famous actors portray various villains from throughout film history. Some of them are not great, but some are pretty neat, such as Rooney Mara’s (which happens to be my favourite). Click on the pic to go to the NYT gallery.
Next is a series of eerie photographs taken by David Gray and collected by Reuters. They show a half-built, abandoned theme park in China which was to be named Wonderland. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. Click on the pic to go to the Reuters gallery.
Finally, we have a short video featuring the architecture of Los Angeles, Charles and Ray Eames, and Ice Cube. How do these sundry things all fit together? Check out the video to find out.
