…Robbie Cooper can turn porn into art?

Immersion:Porn

Robbie Cooper’s latest project, called Immersion:Porn, definitely earns its NSFW tag.

Featuring videos of people watching porn and interviews with those people about their experiences with porn, why they watch porn, and where they watch porn, it’s a pornapalooza, but it’s also a rather interesting and honest look at an often taboo subject.

Just don’t forget to turn the sound down on this one:

…We’re all gonna die?

We're All Gonna Die

Simon Hoegsberg’s work, We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence is a (you guess it) 100 meter long picture composed of 178 different portraits all captured over the course of 20 days from the same spot on a railroad bridge on Warschauer Strasse in Berlin in the summer of 2007.

The title of the photograph: “We’re All Gonna Die – 100 meters of existence” is not meant to spread fear as some people may believe – on the contrary, it’s meant to point out that life is beautiful, and unless we open up to each other instead of keeping our longings, hopes and experiences to ourselves we’ll fall into the grave with a lot of valuable information and love that we never got around to sharing with the people we’re in touch with. I believe that it is meaningful to let the thought that we’re going to die into our heads once in a while because it brings into perspective what we’re actually doing with the life we’ve been given.

Darren Rowse from Digital Photography School also had a chance to speak with Simon about the work, so be sure to read the full interview there for more info.

…It’s Website Wednesday: PixelJam?

PixelJam

PixelJam makes all kinds of crazy 8-bit goodness, including games like RatMaze, where you must hunt down various types of tasty cheese as a pixelated mouse, Gamma Bros, where you help the 21hard-working duo of Buzz and Zap get home in an award winning space shooter, and Dino Run, a multiplayer game where you must run, jump and claw your way to survival.

They also host a rather cool collection of 8-bit art, let you download their original 8-bit music, and have a shop if you’d like to sport some 8-bit gear.

Plus, Format Mag has a nice little interview with the creators if you’d like to read about what inspires their pixelated creations.

Remember when you thought your life was hard?

In this video, Tony Hawk interviews Tommy Carroll, who hasn’t let anything stop him from skateboarding.

Including the fact that he’s 100% blind!

…You Suck At Photoshop has been interviewed?

You Suck At Photoshop

If you liked the You Suck At Photoshop series, then be sure to check out Time Magazine’s interview with co-creators Matt Bledsoe and Troy Hitch.

    “It was meant to be a one-off thing,” said Hitch. “But two weeks later, we checked into YouTube and saw that it had 50,000 page views. We went to Rob and said, ‘Hey, we might take a sabbatical from Tim after Tim.’ ” They launched the second episode of Photoshop and within five days, it had 400,000 page views. Digg dug the site, BoingBoing boinged it, and LaughingSquid inked the deal. A star was born.
