New Concept Sketches for Miami Beach Lifeguard Stands: One Looks Like a McDonald’s

 New Concept Sketches for Miami Beach Lifeguard Stands

Architect William Lane has released the concept sketches for the new lifeguard stands that will replace the iconic Art Deco Lifeguard stands in Miami Beach. They are set to launched just in time for Miami Beach’s centennial celebrations this year, 2015. So far the replacement is a lot more subtle than it was made out to be. City officials had insinuated that the new designs would be dramatic and a turn of the century upgrade. But to us, the new designs are a bit of the same. Plus a some what down grade in size from what can be seen in the sketches. One of the designs doesn’t even have the iconic pastel colors, going for the McDonald’s color scheme instead. Compare the before and after yourself by taking a look at  a past article we did on the iconic Miami Beach Lifeguard Stations. Hopefully we will be put to silence and the new lifeguard stands will bring pride to the decision-making of those evolved in shaping Miami’s future.

Artist Sets Miami Neighborhoods on a Cliffside for a Dazzling Effect


Artist Sets Miami Neighborhoods on a Cliffside for Dazzling Effect

Have you ever wondered how Miami would look if it was a hill-side city? Being a perfectly flat urban sprawl, with its highest point a manmade hill in Tropical Park, the question does spawn your imagination. This past weekend the annual art fair in Miami called Art Wynwood opened on its 4th year. One on the highlights was the hyper-photomontages by artist Jean Francois Rauzier. His large hyper-photos were showcased at the booth of Waterhouse & Dodd Gallery at a price of $26,000. Although, maybe not his intention, artist Jean Francois Razier put together hundreds of photos of two of Miami neighborhoods, Wynwood and Miami Beach and arranged them in such a way to give it a cliff side look. He did this by arranging the photos of each neighborhood’s highlights from smallest to biggest, each layer overlapping the previous. This gives it a a look of a city set on a cliff side like that of Sorrento, Monaco or San Francisco. The interesting approach made crowds around his collection of works displayed at Art Wynwood 2015.

Light Impressions: Mobile Photography Exhibit During ArtWalk

Light Impressions: 30 photographers and 40 iPads

Light Impressions is a Celebration of Mobile Phone Photography showcasing the curated work of 40 mobile phone photographers from around the world on 40 iPads. It is the first mobile phone photography exhibit of this magnitude in world.  With an iPad assigned to each artist, each unit features 13 images continually looping at different intervals.Light Impressions was originally conceived by Colleen Duffely as part of a Studio b. themed exhibit entitled Rock, Paper, Digital that showcased a range of artistic work through time, from primitive methods and mediums through the most contemporary. Colleen seized the opportunity to add a touch of primitive to the Light Impressions exhibit; the metal structure on which the 40 iPad 2 units are mounted was made of materials recovered from the wreckage of 1995’s Hurricane Opal that had blown off of a restaurant.“It seemed appropriate to me – mobile phone photography in particular has a ‘found-art’ sensibility to it, and what better way to frame it than on re purposed materials?” said Duffley. “Mobile phone photography is still an emerging art form,” adds Duffley. “I know people are going to beastounded when they see what is being done in the movement. All of it is on an smart phone – from the capture of an image to its processing and publishing. It is really mind-blowing and wonderful. It’s a pure art form – far more about the creativity than about expensive gear or intricate techniques.”
