New Development: Virtual Klein

Anthropometries for Quake 4 (After Yves Klein) from Chaz Evans on Vimeo.

Now, i'm going to have to pre-emptively beg forgiveness as I know this isn't a lolcaption as such and I know this may also be considered shameless self-blogging as well. But if there is any audience out the who has the slightest chance of appreciating this I figure its the type who enjoys contemporary art mingling with internet cat slang.

I've started experimenting with merging 20th century art figures with elements of commercial video games. Here I figure, why not paint the virtual quake body the way Klein takes to the naked ladies? Theres more explanation on the vimeo page. Hope you enjoy.

For the actual museum guards reading this, i know, this was probably too soon. Thanks for the suggestion Krissy.

Reader Submission Fun!

Please enjoy this potpourri of captions courtesy of Shaun B and Nike D of Top to bottom: Still from Benuel and Dali's Un Chien Andalou (1929), Robert Rauschenberg's Erased De Kooning (1953) and more lolBarney (we will never get enough) with Cremaster 3 (2002).

Thanks to all those still reading and submitting. Apologies for my absence.
