Troy Hunter turns a neurological disorder into photographic beauty.

By Brian Staker
POSTED // Feb 26,2009 - Artists are usually thought of as being possessed of a sure hand and purposeful eye. This is especially true of practitioners of the art of photography, which at least begins with the actual particles of light entering the lens, an analog for the human eye, although the image may be manipulated in creating the final result.

Vetiver & Robert Pollard

By Brian Staker
POSTED // Feb 13,2009 - Since when did Sub Pop turn into a new folk label? Well thats not all the Seattle-based outfit is, obviously, but a large contingent of its roster fits into the denomination.

Pump Up the Volumes

By Brian Staker
POSTED // Feb 13,2009 - Artworks and books are two things that, until recently, seemed to know their place. Art stayed on the wall at arms length; books, though portable, kept their mouths shut until you opened them, and they couldnt say anything more than words could describe, anyway.

By Brian Staker
POSTED // Jan 14,2009 - Musical performers have been a part of the Sundance Film Festival for years, adding to the “festive” atmosphere in Park City. But musical guests aren’t just a soundtrack to the parties, award ceremonies and celeb stalking that accompanies the festival; music is an art form that cross-pollinates with film to make artistic statements of its own, and augments the statements made by ...

Visual Art | Whisper to a “Scream”: Inspired by Munch, David Ruhlman creates his own visions of mysticism and apocalypse.
