Miguel Chavalier Digitalizes The Natural World

The French artist, Miguel Chavalier, has created an amazing amazing interacting digital art exhibit. His exhibit focuses on taking natural elements such as flowers and reinterpreting and creating a whole new universe within the art museum in a new metaphorical way. Lets just say it’s damn trippy. Right now the exhibit is on display at the Museum of Modern Art of Céret in France. Each piece is said to interact with the visitors as they move in the space in which surrounds them. Overall, this seems very aesthetically pleasing and I hope the man brings some of his work to the midwest.

This home is brought to you by the studio out of San Francisco by the name of, Fougeron Architecture. The three-bedroom home is built on Big Sur’s south coast all while being neatly nestled on the ocean landscape. The complex structure looks like something thought up in a dream, but it is entirely real. These photos of the Fall House simply do not justify its view, as it appears to be absolutely stunning.

Jordan brand has been pretty quiet as of late, but with the summer nearly upon us; you can expect all of that to change very soon. As the World Cup approaches, they’ve decided to pay homage to the games by designing a pair of VIs. A lot of people are speculating whether these are in fact modeled after Brazil’s colors or if they just decided to have fun, we don’t have the answers; but they are a pretty nice pair of kicks. No word on a release date, but you can expect these to drop sometime before the World Cup in June.

ATR The Sage – Watch Out (RMX) Ft. Pelly & Create (Video)


ATR The Sage links up with Pelly & Create for the remix to “Watch Out”. Not exactly sure what the situation was, but the track may be directed at some “fuck ass wannabe 507 kids”.
