Jordan Wolfson ‘s Animatronic (Female figure), 2014 at David Zwirner Gallery NYC
Acclaimed artist Jordan Wolfson’s imagination brought this animatronic figure to life with a little help from his friends at Spectral Motion. The piece is currently being exhibited at David Zwirner Gallery in New York. The figure incorporates facial recognition technology, allowing her to focus on, and unnervingly follow, visitors at the exhibition.
“Filmmaker Adam Ravetch of Arctic Bear Productions likes telling visual stories about polar wildlife. By strapping a Go-Pro camera onto one of a group of four polar bears, he managed to capture some of the most jaw-droppingly beautiful footage of these creatures I’ve ever seen.”

Hilariously Photos of People Posed as If They Have Just Fallen by Sandro Giordano
Photographer Sandro Giordano has a darkly hilarious series on Instagram titled ‘In Extremis (bodies with no regret)’ featuring people posed as if they have just fallen. Meticulously-staged and styled, he captures his subjects in awkward and uncomfortable-looking positions while surrounded by their belongings, always with an object in hand. According to Giordoan, the series comments on the willingness of people to place their material possessions before their own safety. He was inspired to start it after a bicycle accident where he lost 30% of the function in his right hand, because he didn’t let go of the object he was holding as he fell.
