Guy Cohen produced these carefully composed and executed black and white images through while exploring different parts of the world such as the US, Australia, Norway and Romania. While many of the photographs were indeed taken abroad, the student in Jerusalem’s portfolio showcases a lot of significant sights in his hometown.
From snowy streets to striking tile patterns, Guy Cohen’s black and white images tell the story of a solitary wander around a city rich in history and culture.
The 24 year-old artist is currently an editor in editor in “Composition” – an online photography magazine while attending university as well.
Be sure to check out Guy’s other photographs here and his facebook page. The images were taken with a Nikon D7000 and using a Sigma 10-20mm lens and a Nikon 50mm 1.8f.

As a part of UCLA Department of Architecture and Urban Design (A.UD) advanced design studio course “Architectural Intelligence: Exploring Space as an Interactive Medium”, researchers Refik Anadol, Raman Mustafa, Julietta Gil and Farzad Mirshafiei created The Aether Project, an immersive interactive environment that seamlessly combines robotic actuation, formal transformation and real time projection mapping controlled by a sensory input device. The course lead by Guvenc Ozel (previously featured here), Technology Director of the new IDEAS platform of UCLA A.UD, in collaboration with Casey Reas, Professor at UCLA Design Media Arts, explored potential scenarios of architecture as a responsive, robotically actuated technology which undergoes spatial iterations triggered by sense based devices.
The evolution of technology reveals an aspiration to place mind into matter in order to create tools that are subservient yet autonomous from humans. Architecture as a form of technology does not exist outside of this cultural aspiration. Concurrently, experiments in sensing technology express this desire to transform architecture into an intelligent form of technology that can autonomously negotiate between the human body, human psyche, the environment and other physical and perceptual parameters.
Based on this premise, the Aether Project focuses on providing an immersive experience through real-time Leap Motion controlled system that synchronously aligns projection mapped visuals on a transforming surface geometry, both choreographed though robot movements. Thus, The Aether Project is designed to test the interaction between humans x robots, robot x robot, and the resulting recursive relationship between technology and human perception continuously.
Incredibly detailed and well composed drawings of junkyard cars and delivery trucks covered in graffiti by Australian artist Paul White. Be sure to check out the laborious and seriously committed to detail process of creating these works through the 30 hour timelapses. We at Epistrophy love the use of white space in Paul’s drawings which as if erased on purpose recedes in the background to allow for the beautiful pencil line-work to stand out even more.
20 year-old student Lucas Zimmermann from Landau, Germany has taken a simple concept and turned into a beautiful and atmospheric piece of photography. The images were taken at a small intersection in Weimar on a dark and foggy night. The resulting images have an eerie, movie-like quality to them and as well as a striking visual sharpness.
We at Epistrophy are definitely looking forward to seeing Lucas’ future projects.
Although this video has been around for over a year, it’s about time to bring it back just in time to get this snow adventure season started! The 2014 Winter Olympics are also lined up this which should give all the more inspiration to go hit the slopes. This stunning video was created by director and photographer Jacob Sutton for Nowness with a soundtrack by Mutant Jukebox. Absolute thrill to watch.
Professor Adam Summers, associate director of Comparative Vertebrate Biomechanics at Washington University uses a staining method developed almost 40 years ago but rarely shown this way. The aim behind it is to expose the intricate and oftentimes hard to pinpoint skeletal structure of sea and ocean creatures.
Each of the fish specimen is infused with blue (called Alcian Blue) or red (called Alizarin Red S) pigments paint which remains onto the skeletons and intensifies where the bone structure is densest. A bleaching process then follows to remove the tissues and any dark pigments before being submerged into glycerin for display purposes.
The specimen were all shot using a Canon 5D Mark III camera fitted with a 100mm Macro lens on a tripod.
Street art duo Bezt and Sainer from Etam Cru have traveled the world to find gloomy, empty walls on which to create their exquisite murals. The Polish duo primarily works across Eastern Europe but has also created graffitis in Portugal, France, Austria, Germany and the US.
The fictional characters that the duo creates all share a distinct quality – a refinement and masterful use of color clearly derived from a background in painting. Stripped from a political or social agenda, the large murals are a joyful exploration in the beauty of an image and deliberately work to counterpoint their usually dismal surrounding.
