Erevos Aether’s AW 2014-15 collection, Wake the Serpent Not, contrasts sheer, romantic, fragile textures with armorlike iridescent leather and metallic elements. The architectural qualities of this tough, invulnerable aspect combine with its softer side to create a high sci-fi look that is dark and impressive.

"Balloon Dog Deflated" (GIF file) by Michael Green "
A GIF artwork on ebay, hoping to be the ‘most expensive GIF of all time” and make $5,800:"Balloon Dog Deflated" (www.luxuryobj.tumblr.com/post/95388265108) is a GIF animation by the net artist Michael Green, an excerpt from his tumblr GIF series “luxury.obj” (www.luxuryobj.tumblr.com) which explores the desire of class “objects” through the replication and representation of the original object, with specific attention detailed on the essence of the object itself, through the use of various digital lighting and texture techniques. “Balloon Dog Deflated” is an ironic re-working of the 12 foot stainless steel sculpture “Balloon Dog” (1994) by Jeff Koons, which sold in an auction for $58 million dollars, which according to The New York Times, claims that the sculpture is “the most expensive work sold by an artist in an auction” Jeff Koons would have a staff of the most skilled “employed” craftsmen to compose his work …

Jeff Koons sold his original “Balloon Dogs” through a physical auction for a record $58 million dollars. HISTORY ALWAYS REPEATS ITSELF. Here we are, 20 years later on ebay (a digital auction) with the same artwork, created in the medium of our times (3D animation/GIF) , about to make history once again. When you commit to buying the original GIF file, rendered directly from the artist’s computer, you will be making history, as you will have purchased the most expensive bitmap image format in the history of mankind …I can’t see it happening …You can check out the ebay listing here
