"Let’s just do it man, see what happens.” This is the philosophy of Josh Wingerter, self-made artist and entrepreneur from Westwego, Louisiana, a small town right outside of New Orleans. Josh’s early roots in his artistic process started while he was working in artist Keith Eccles’s studio, who Josh credits as a huge influence on his artwork. Despite the lack of professional training or schooling in the arts, Josh managed to wow Eccles with his work. A customer stopped by the studio one day and noticed Josh’s work. Eccles introduced them to one another and commented, “If he wasn’t so lazy, he’d be a great artist.” This is when Josh had to ask himself—is that true? Should he be challenging himself more?

Just Another Day on Aerosol Earth

It was just another day on aerosol Earth. For August 23, 2018, the identification and distribution of aerosols in the Earth's atmosphere is shown in this dramatic, planet-wide digital visualization. Produced in real time, the Goddard Earth Observing System Forward Processing (GEOS FP) model relies on a combination of Earth-observing satellite and ground-based data to calculate the presence of types of aerosols, tiny solid particles and liquid droplets, as they circulate above the entire planet. This August 23rd model shows black carbon particles in red from combustion processes, like smoke from the fires in the United States and Canada, spreading across large stretches of North America and Africa. Sea salt aerosols are in blue, swirling above threatening typhoons near South Korea and Japan, and the hurricane looming near Hawaii. Dust shown in purple hues is blowing over African and Asian deserts. The location of cities and towns can be found from the concentrations of lights based on satellite image data of the Earth at night.
NASA's Earth Observatory has a page on aerosols, showing optical depth. They have a mov file showing optical depth from 2000 to 2020, with select and compare options. According to the site, "tiny solid and liquid particles suspended in the atmosphere are called aerosols. Windblown dust, sea salts, volcanic ash, smoke from wildfires, and pollution from factories are all examples of aerosols. Depending upon their size, type, and location, aerosols can either cool the surface, or warm it. They can help clouds to form, or they can inhibit cloud formation. And if inhaled, some aerosols can be harmful to people's health."
Alice travels continuously and her preferred canvases are city walls. The Roman artist, both a street artist and painter, as well as an illustrator and set designer, has developed different threads in her research, from narrating feminine vitality to manipulating the three-dimensional possibilities of her work. She moves from urban explorations to installations using found materials.

With his spray-paint cans and his stencils, SUFYR gives back shine to dull walls, rusty doors and forgotten places. He embellishes them either with colorful portraits or more sober ones. His models? Faces of famous people who touch him, strangers with moving looks, political figures, mocked in many contexts, or anonymous, his daily heroes. French street artist based in le-Cannet-des-Maures (Var,France), Alexandre PLAUT alias SUFYR has been performing since 2014 where street life and the eyes of passers-by don’t go anymore. “I want to draw attention where people don’t bother to look anymore, appropriate abandoned places to exist”.
