The dynamic duo, artists Kahn and Selesnick have been quietly feeding the internet with their new visual suite entitled “Adrift on the Hourglass Sea”. For those unfamiliar with K+H, they merge graphic design, storytelling, CGI and photography into large scale multi-piece epics. I had the pleasure of seeing one of their previous exhibitions up close and personal last year and mere web images do not do them justice. They are meticulous and worthy of hours of gazing. As with previous collections, this one also features wide-screen panoramics, which can see in full detail on their website. I was especially drawn to these character and structure vignettes, set against a Mars-red sky. They have a monolithic quality, and also are strikingly emotional even for their alien tone. The beauty of K+H’s work is their ability to inform with enough of a story but allow the viewer to fill in the remaining holes with whatever their imagination can muster.

I swear this blog isn’t space themed and my fascination with all things interstellar will become less frequent after this post. After seeing those enormous Earth pictures NASA produced and released earlier this week, I started to daydream and remember all those crazy and wacky Disney created short films about space travel I use to catch on late, late night tv as a kid. This clip is by far my favorite, filled with surreal imagery and wild imagination that seems kinda rare nowadays.
NASA has released new images of the Earth taken from it’s space orbiter during 2001 and meticulously pieced together from thousands of smaller images. Amazingly beautiful. Check them out here and also in the image gallery at NASA.gov.
