for my walls

Today’s prints that I want on my wall are by the Berlin-based artist Meike Nixdorf, who I have a super photo crush on and have admired since I first stumbled upon her work on 20×200. Meike was in the spotlight in 2011 when she was selected as a second edition Hot Shot, and I immediately began drooling over the release of her two latest editions of vivid landscapes. Yum.
All photographs are views from the series In the Orbit of El Teide, and can be found on Meike’s site.

Helmut Smits

Nature in the Netherlands

I love simple things like this. So much clever!

Helmut Smits is an idea machine—or “multidisciplinary visual artist”—based in Rotterdam, Netherlands (which makes sense why I like it). I’m uncertain how I can across them, but the approach to art is delightful. Here are a few samples of their work, and be sure to mosey on over to their site to check out the rest!

An evening with Mark Dion

Mark Dion visited NDSU this evening to give an artist’s talk. I wasn’t familiar with him before the lecture, but after seeing his work I feel fortunate to have caught him!

Dion, a native not-so-native New Englander that spends his time globetrotting (my ideal job) incorporates archaeology and nature into his work in a curious, orderly way. He’s been featured in the PBS Series Art:21 and even has his own Wiki page!
Check out some of Dion’s work.
His visit has prompted my interest in owning this book as well…
