Both Chuck Close and Kiki Smith are making tapestries with the help of Magnolia Editions.  While Close’s look mostly like pixelated, textured photographs, Kiki Smith’s “wall rugs” are really incredible. Below are three from 2012 as well as one I captured from the 2014 Pace show here.

Red Epic Dragon Footage

The Freefly Systems folks went out with a state of the art 6K Red Epic Dragon camera attached to a CineStar 8 and got some really nice winter footage.  The Canon shift lens gives it the out of focus / small scale look. This is a very expensive camera to put on a rig like this. ( All drones fall out of the sky on a regular basis FYI).  (If their insurance company knew they would probably discontinue their coverage…LOL) Watch it in HD on big monitor.
