“History of the Future”

by

September 11, 2015

Atelier Martino1
“More than resolving its information inconsistencies, this book posed a higher responsibility and challenge. The responsibility of addressing young people writing about the future. About their opinions and emotions, their hopes, fears and dreams. And by drafting the history of the future, they were in fact expressing their personality, their characteristics and their views on the contemporary world.” -Atelier Martino & Jaña, Porto, Portugal

Tatiana Plakhova Part II

Tatiana Plakhova - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere." -Tatiana Plakhova, Moscow, Russia

Nonotak Studio

Nonotak Studio - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Nonotak Studio is a collaboration between animator Noemi Schipfer and "architect musician" Takami Nakamoto. In 2011 they were commissioned by a French architect to create a public mural in Paris and the duo has been constructing dizzying audio and visual installations since. Deep, brooding, and ambient soundscapes are coupled with beautiful geometric patterns of light that sway in space as the viewer is fully immersed. Nonotak Studio have taken their pieces to festivals throughout the U.S. (i.e.; New York) and Europe (primarily). I secretly imagine myself wandering the streets of Paris late, late at night and stumbling into one of these installations, they are so tricking RAD!

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

by

January 31, 2014

TOP 100 2013
[Photo by: Shelbie Dimond] 939 is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939 only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939 back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939 in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore. According to HistoryOrb.com, 4 major events took place in year 939 that were documented: July 8th (The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi), August 6th (Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors), October 2nd (Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans), October 27th (Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England)...which all has nothing to do with EK. Nonetheless, 939 is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013!

MAX CAPACITY Part Deux

art blog - Max Capacity - empty kingdom
Max Capacity is back! Previously featured back in August 2012, interviewed on June 2010, and securing a spot on our TOP 100 of 2010, Max Capacity returns with more of his digital/new media/pixelated (call-it-what-have-you) work. "Digitally remixing" reappropriated images and video/film stills from yester-years, Max Capacity transforms them into uniquely distorted and chaotic standalone pieces that reminds me of the good ol'days trying to watch scrambled porn on cable.
