I love these collages of found images by Seattle artist Shaun Kardinal. They remind me of M.C. Escher; however, Kardinal’s pieces are made of images taken from Google searches and friends’ Facebook and Instagram feeds. Another aspect of the work that stands out is their mode of display.
Chase Kahn (BFA 2015) is a photographer and designer currently pursuing dual degrees in Studio Art Photography and Communication Design from the University of North Texas. His work utilizes both digital and analog techniques formed from mixed media and found materials to produce satirical works about consumption and the domestic. His project Who Wants You to Live Forever? combines imagery from home journal magazines and mid-century advertisements to create a series that celebrates the visual style of the source material while functioning as a critique of consumerism and over-saturation.
