!! OMG, BUTT HEADS: Heather Dewey-Hagburg’s ‘Stranger Visions’ !!

heather07.jpeg
Info artist Heather Dewey-Hagburg is a full on dirty scab; she’s been going around picking up cigarette butts…ewww!
But I completely take that back really because she’s then been analysing the genetic traces left behind to construct fully formed busts which she exhibits as a sort of show-and-shame hall of litter-bug shame which I think is totally passive aggressive artistry hilarity.
Jump in to see some of her garb-ARGE vis-ARGE creat-ARGE.

!! OMG, treestruction and heartbreak: About Group’s ‘All is not Lost’ !!

Environmental artist Henrik Håkansson uses footage of condemned exploding trees and ‘butterflutters’-in-flight from his own project, ‘Symptoms Of The Universe Studies’ for About Group’s latest single ‘All is not Lost’ from their second album due out in July.
NOWNESS spoke to [plus Hot Chip] frontman Alexis Taylor about his top 5 heartbreak songs, and how he went about writing this particular track:

“[the song is] almost like a modern-day 12-bar blues or gospel equivalent, that you can hear in Monica’s “The Boy Is Mine,” “Love Don’t Cost A Thing” by Jennifer Lopez, “It’s Not Right But It’s Okay” by Whitney Houston and almost every R. Kelly ballad on the album R.”

!! OMG, Korean is believan: Ji Yeo’s ‘The Beauty’ !!

the_beauty_007.jpg
You may or may not have seen the recent article going around about a former model in South Korea who -when refused further facial procedures by her doctors- took to injecting what was essentially cooking oil into her face, which resulted in the most unfortunate BLUMPKIN PUMPKIN Halloween hot mess you ever did see!
According to visual artist Ji Yeo’s website; in 2010 South Korea was the country with the world’s highest per capita rate of cosmetic plastic surgery.
You can see Yeo’s NSFW photographs -subtitled ‘Beauty Recovery Room’– after the jump, which were taken in attempt to highlight the unnecessary risk of multiple generally-anesthetised cosmetic procedures which have become the norm for women in South Korean society.
Ji Yeo also partook in a performance where she appeared in public in nude-tone undergarments with a sign that read:

“I want to be perfect. Draw on me. Where should I get plastic surgery?”

My suggestion [?]…she should get her head removed and give it to that poor Mrs Pumpkin headed lady.

jylle-navarro-504781-3791308-8s.jpg
Jylle Navarro’s work sometimes is a little ‘woolen Monsters In[c] Your Pockets’, often a tad ‘sock goblins who live under the bed’ sometimes just a bit ‘Pickle Surprise’ [above] and can end up down right ‘harajuku lamp-shade ladies with tangled yarny nunchuck slinkies’!
Jylle spoke to Wonderland [HERE] about her current interest in Bowie’s alien iconography, macrame and tasseling, and her ideas for the next collection:

“I think I might got for a John Waters style freak and fetish collection.I’m thinking grown men in knitted baby bonnets.”
