NSFW “French Postcards” That Will Show You How People Got Nudes Way Before The Internet

Our generation might prefer nudes, but these photographs were so much more artistic.

Erotic images have always been a lucrative business. Sex sells, and that is the reason behind the multi-million dollar empire that is Playboy Enterprise. The magazine helped revolutionize sexuality in the 1950’s, and to this day, it’s still a popular publication all over the world.

The magazine then announced it would stop publishing nude pictures in 2015, however a year after the first nude-free issue came out, the decision was reversed. Throughout history, there has always been some form of nude images for people to enjoy and look at. For instance, Francisco de Goya painted “The Nude Maja,” Pablo Picasso, the “Les Demoiselles d’Avignon,” and Playboy blazed the trail for nudie mags, but before this magazine was distributed around the world, people would rely on “French postcards.

“Melting Memories”: Augmented Data Sculptures By Refik Anadol

‘Melting Memories’ is the latest project by LA-based media artist Refik Anadol.

Comprising data paintings, augmented data sculptures and light projections, the project as a whole debuts new advances in technology that enable visitors to experience aesthetic interpretations of motor movements inside a human brain. Each work grows out of the artist’s impressive experiments with the advanced technology tools provided by the Neuroscape Laboratory at the University of California, San Francisco.

Neuroscape is a neuroscience center focusing on technology creation and scientific research on brain function of both healthy and impaired individuals. Anadol gathers data on the neural mechanisms of cognitive control from an EEG (electroencephalogram) that measures changes in brain wave activity and provides evidence of how the brain functions over time.

New Surreal Paintings By Matthew Grabelsky Take The New York City Subway For A Wild Ride

New York City is sometimes affectionately (or disaffectionately) referred to as a ‘concrete jungle’, but for Los Angeles-based artist Matthew Grabelsky (previously) it’s more of a big cageless zoo. Using the New York City subway system as the setting for his work, Grabelsky paints surreal portraits of people who are seemingly normal from the neck down, but who have had their heads replaced by animals, both wild and domesticated.

“Failed Memories”: The Superb Glitchy Digital Art Of David Szauder

David Szauder was born in 1976 in Hungary. He studied Art History at the Eötvös Loránd University and Intermedia at the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in Budapest. In 2008/2009 David spent a year at the School of Arts, Design and Architecture at the Aalto University in Helsinki with a scholarship program.

David has been leading workshops about interactive media in Berlin and in Budapest since 2010 and he is a visiting lecturer at the HFF Potsdam.

“I am inspired by the parallels what I see between human memory and computer memory: Our brains store away images to retrieve them later, like files stored away on a hard drive.

Bold Nudes That Show How Our Bodies Are All We Have In The End

Ignacio Navarro is a Chilean photographer whose artistic inspiration is all about conservation. Featuring bold nudes that force viewers to witness devastation we’d usually turn away from, we’re also left with confronting our inner prudishness to also avoid the human body in it’s natural form.

His series Anima Terrae explores both the selfish decadence that has led to wildlife and ecosystems being destroyed over time, to the constant shame pointed towards anyone who chooses to go without the need for artifice and superficiality.

As a culture and society we are completely contradictory. We claim to love open spaces full of trees and fresh air, yet these are continuously erased from sight to make way for urban settings. We say the human body is perfect as it is, yet we shy away from any notion of nudity that is free from shame and guilt.
