Now playing: Blue Chips Mixtape by Action Bronson
“If they paused to inspect this artifact, once the largest neon sign in America, they may feel a strange kinship or sense of comfort. Because the men behind the “OUTPOST” sign were just like them — hard working pioneers who believed in the American Dream and the importance of myth, glamour, and one-upmanship years before the first movie cameras were ever pulled into the perfect California sun.”
Our studio dog is a multi-platinum recording artist.
Rolf Sinnemark, Teapot, 1985
Christopher Bucklow, Guest, 1995To create this picture, Bucklow photographed the sun using a multiple pinhole camera constructed from a cardboard box. The apertures, punched out in a pattern, allowed him to make numerous, often thousands, of images simultaneously. Together, like atoms, these tiny images of the sun join to form a larger body—in this case, a luminous human figure, which happens to be the artist himself.
Our studiomate and resident artist, Brian Rea, created this animation of our awesome studio Situation Room last night.
