Photographer Arseniy Kotov is dedicated to documenting the changes in Russian life and architecture since the fall of the USSR, a commitment that brought him to the coldest European city last February. Located about 110 miles from the Arctic Ocean, Vorkuta is a small mining town that once held one of the largest and most grueling forced labor camps during Stalin’s reign. Often plagued by temperatures as low as -45 degrees Celcius, the city now has one of the fastest dwindling populations in all of Russia.

During Kotov’s visit, he toured various housing complexes built for workers, many of which were abandoned when the mines closed. One building in particular, though, is evidence of how desertion continues to unsettle the once-thriving city, an ongoing problem that Kotov captured in a stunning series. His photographs frame the dilapidated, five-story structure that’s entirely subsumed by feet-long … Read the rest

“I hope…” (2021), rope, paper, steel, installation view at König Galerie, Berlin. All images by Sunhi Mang, VG Bild-Kunst, Bonn, courtesy of the artist, shared with permission

A towering expanse of red thread, a new installation by Chiharu Shiota (previously) suspends 10,000 letters within the nave of Berlin’s König Galerie, a Brutalist-style space located in the former St. Agnes church. The immersive construction runs floor to ceiling and is awash with notes from people around the world who share their dreams following a particularly devastating year. Aptly named “I hope…,” the large-scale project hangs two wire boats that appear to float upward at its center, evoking travel into an unknown future.

For this collaborative installation, the Japanese artist, who’s lived in Berlin for the last two decades, draws on a similar piece from 2015 titled “The Key in the Hand.” That earlier work similarly utilizes … Read the rest

Suit-inspired landscaping, overgrown shrubs, and misaligned stripes are just some of the scenes that comprise Enoch Ku’s Ordinary Sacramento, an ongoing project documenting the visual language of the Californian city. Ku is adept at identifying humor and quirkiness among the otherwise mundane urban landscape, framing a street sign or bike rack in a playful manner. Generally taken during a quiet moment, the compositions are evidence of the photographer’s keen sense of awareness and ability to observe what others might not.

Prior to launching Ordinary Sacramento, Ku worked as an actor and wedding photographer, two jobs that required him to rush from one place to the next. The pace of that lifestyle, in addition to the performative nature of the work, sparked his desire to slow down and document the world through a different lens. He explains:

Even if one is not familiar with his name, there would be few that do not recognize da Vinci’s most famous artworks, including the Mona Lisa featured on this lens and The Last Supper. Unfortunately, due to his inclination to experiment with new techniques that often ended in disaster, in addition to his notoriety for procrastination, very few of his paintings survive today. However, despite this, Leonardo was able to incorporate and mix his passion for art with science. … Read the rest

New York: Finch College Museum of Art, 1968. Composition: The bicycle is placed centrally on the page, equidistant from each edge, yet it takes up only a small percentage of the painting surface. Contrast: The bicycle is very detailed; the background is rough and abstract. Shape: The bicycle is not placed in real space but in a light, airy undefined space. Instrument-specific neuroplasticity interestingly extends to perception. Musicians show greater evoked potentials in the presence of auditory stimuli as compared to nonmusicians (Pantev et al., 1998). This effect is modulated by the specific musical training, as indicated by timbre-specific neuronal responses observable in different groups of instrumentalists. For example, string and trumpet players reveal stronger evoked cortical responses when presented to the sound of their respective instrument (Pantev, … Read the rest

Generally speaking, the mechanism for generating the human voice can be subdivided into three parts; the lungs, the vocal cords within the larynx (voice box), and the articulators. The lung, the pump” must produce adequate airflow and air pressure to vibrate vocal cords. The vocal cords then vibrate to use airflow from the lungs to create audible pulses that form the laryngeal sound source. Actually cords” is not really a good name, because they are not string at all, but rather flexible stretchy material more like a stretched piece of balloon. The correct … Read the rest
