The New Design Beat | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

If you have seen the picture above, now you are probably being flashed by thousands of images from the past, back in the good old times! In all of them you are dancing to some kick-ass music that comes from this huge yet awesome speakers without the need of any cable! Axel Pfaender, a Berlin-based illustrator and DJ, dreamt about getting back these special moments and decided it was time for a cool and fun mobile speaker … a soundsystem to show off, like back in the days.

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Chema Madoz

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Chema Madoz | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

A buried guitar . The universe as the  target of an arrow. A cloud in a cage. Welcome to Chema Madoz’s world. The Spanish photographer specializes in item diversion. The images looks simple yet nothing is left to chance. If the works are untitled, the viewer is  quickly  taken into the game, looking for the double meaning of the images, and the details which will disturb the logic of the image. In his still lifes, Madoz plays with the words, shadows and shapes.

Julia Fullerton-Batten In Service

Julia Fullerton-Batten In Service | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

My theme in this project is inequity. At that time the division between the richest and poorest in society was vast, extreme poverty and its consequences was widespread. In order to escape poverty hundreds of thousands of men and women entered “service”. It was not the relatively comfortable life frequently illustrated in today’s TV programmes. There was exploitation and abuse, some of it sexual in nature. In Service exposes some of the going-on behind the walls of the houses of the privileged class in that era.

Pej Behdarvand Deathbed

Pej Behdarvand Deathbed | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Despite the project name, the images of these salvaged cars photographed by Pej Behdarvand are not documented in direct allusion to the deathbeds of humans, morgues, or even crime-scene photos. When Behdarvand stepped foot into the auto junkyard world, with its churchly order of rows upon rows of irreparable machines, he was entering a kind of purgatory. The vehicles in this photo series are depicted as if museum objects, yet unlike museum objects these wrecked cars are not to be physically preserved intact for posterity, but will be crushed for reuse in another form.

Voies Off: John Paul Evans Matrimonial ties | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Over the last 10 months, the focus of my work has been the performance of various permutations of the wedding portrait. The repetitious act creates multiple generic couples and brings into question the false notion of autonomy promised by existentialism. The philosopher and cultural historian Michel Foucault was opposed to the idea of the existentialist project as it gives the individual the illusion of autonomy. Instead, he focussed more on ‘process’, and the idea of ‘becoming’ rather than ‘being’.

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel

Arles 2014 : Nos coups de Coeur - Léon Gimpel | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Paris, August 1915: men are at war and women  are working. Far from their parents, the children of the rue Greneta play at battle. Equipped with only his camera and the inspiration of a few Poulbot drawings, Léon Gimpel faced this army of kids. From this encounter in the heart of the Sentier neighbourhood was born a series of staged photographic tableaux, alternating between colour (autochrome) and black and white. As the days went by, Léon Gimpel and his army of kids developed a kind of typology in miniature of images of the Great War. Almost all the archetypal scenes are represented .It is not death that Gimpel and the army of the rue Greneta playact, but heroism, courage, and the victory of the children of France.

For 20 years I was an art director for leading lingerie and swimwear brands, and I was always a little jealous of the photographers. This is how, indirectly, I learned my craft. My love for the girls was insatiable.

The Middle East Revealed A Female Perspective

The Middle East Revealed A Female Perspective | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Photography from the Middle East receives fairly little attention in the United States, and our image of the region is fashioned by journalists covering conflicts that date back to colonial times. Women are invariably represented as veiled, oppressed, deprived of their freedom by a patriarchal society, or as an untouchable beauty with dark, penetrating eyes peering out from a chador. Between exoticism and cultural simplification, the Middle East of women is codified to the point of caricature.
