Mako, the King James Bible 400th birthday, and the four holy gospels

my friend Mako has done something brave and unique and beautiful. he's illustrating the Bible with abstract art. the mystery of creation. a new illumined bible for the 21st century. 

there's a new modern art in town!

Mako's paintings move you profoundly. they are worship in paint.

opening tonight at the Dillon Gallery
555 W25th Street, NYC

More here.

His book, The Four Gospels Illumined Bible will be on sale in January.

stop the world

Instead of shooting a fast moving object, Taylor's high-speed video camera is the fast moving object (on a high speed train going around 125 mph), and it is filming the platform moving by. Fast motion in slow motion.

no plot, no action, totally mesemerizing.

He says: "In all my slow-motion work so far, I’ve used a static camera to capture a high-speed event. But, I wondered, what would happen if the camera was the fast-moving object? For instance, if you use a 210fps camera at 35mph, on playback at 30fps it’ll seem to the observer that they’re moving at walking pace- but everything observed will be operating at 1/7th speed."

ah yes. just as I suspected.

where AM I?
