Nut II - Celebrating the Female Artist Community

Nut_II_Female_Art_Book.png

NUT II Book Launch

March 24th, 2018 4-6P

at A.I.R. Gallery (155 Plymouth St, Brooklyn, NY)

Please join us at 4pm on March 24th, at the historic A.I.R. Gallery for the launch of NUT II.

NUT is an all women’s publication devoted to celebrating and fostering the female artist community. The project takes its name from the Egyptian sky Goddess who, every night, swallows the sun and births it anew, performing the perpetual cycle of life and death. The impetus for NUT was a desire to harness personal traumas into positive outcomes as a process of healing and renewal.

Our goal is twofold: first to give form to a beautiful collection of great art made by women, and second, as a means of raising funds to support women globally. All proceeds generated by NUT are donated to the Global Fund for Women, an international organization whose mission is to “find, fund, and amplify the courageous work of women who are building social movements and challenging the status quo.” More info: www.globalfundforwomen.org

The book’s 5 x 7 in. format features a collection of 64 detachable high-quality prints of works on paper by women artists. A limited edition will be available for purchase at the launch and subsequently via www.nutpublication.com and anteism.

Machines Upon Every Flower - Can machines create art? 

A Book of artwork & poetry created by Artificial Intelligence.

AI_Cover.jpg

Machines Upon Every Flower questions computational creativity in the massive new field of Artificial Intelligence. This book is the result of collaboration between Anteism, visual artist Gregory Chatonsky (artist-researcher @ Paris 8) and Karmel Allison (Founder of CuratedAI.com).

By feeding a single word into Allison's Deep Gimble A.I., a poem is generated.  These poems are then interpreted by another Artificial Intelligence developed by Gregory Chatonsky, which produces artworks in response.

The result is an art book leading us to consider the artistic merit and creative potential of Artificial Intelligence.

Simultaneously, questions arise around the nature of human creativity itself and may further lead toward its demystification.

How will art change with the introduction of Artificial Intelligence?

How will Artificial Intelligence alter the way we create and perceive artwork?  How will this new development push the boundaries of established theory and practices in the arts? This book acts as a historical document or time capsule of artificial intelligence in 2017.

Graviky Labs - Air Ink x Anteism Collaboration

Air pollution --> Ink --> Sketchbook.

AIR-INK is the world's first ink made out of air pollution. While working at MIT, Graviky Labs invented a device that captures air pollution from the exhaust of vehicles. This solid pollution is then purified and converted into safe, high-quality ink for art.

Anteism is excited to collaborate on the launch of Air Ink by producing custom screen printed sketchbooks for the kickstarter campaign. The covers of the sketchbooks will be silkscreened using Air Ink and will feature the artwork of the amazing crew En Masse.

Pickup a limited edition sketchbook and help Air Ink scale up it's production to help reduce dirty air emissions and give artists another tool to make beautiful things.

History of Magic - Alison Blickle

In her first book with Anteism, History of Magic, Alison Blickle relates a connection we all share with nature, our ancestors and the unseen worlds around us.  Strength, fearlessness and Sisterhood emanate from these images,  inducing pattern recognition and a sure sense of interconnectivity.

Paired with excerpts from writings on ceremonial magic by 19C French Occultist Éliphas Lévi,   Blickle delivers a genuine Mythos in this timeless body of work.

Below is a look-book with example pages from History of Magic. Purchase a copy of the book.

Augmented Reality For the Arts

Anteism's AR•BOOK is an augmented reality platform which allows for video, animation and 3d holograms to be viewable from the pages of a book.

Never Print This - Anthony Lister

Australian provocateur Anthony Lister graffitis his own polaroids in this book of art, scribbling symbols from his unconscious over the spontaneous imagery he's captured of the people and scenes in his life. This work is intimate and revealing. More than ever, in his words, it's "like being a soldier because I have to be hard as fuck to fall in love with these things and let them go.”

Caia Hagel, excerpt from Never Print This
"Climbing long ladders and slinking over concrete surfaces in cities across the world, fiercely, like the colourful protagonists of his visions, with cape on, spray cans under arm, goggles secured tightly; artist Anthony Lister is on a divine mission: the fight, for all of us, against the zeitgeist’s big villain, a saga that he calls 'the war of creativity on reality'.”

Tall Tales a new book by Caitlin McDonagh

Traditionally the idea of a ‘Tall Tale’ is a story that has fantastical events and unbelievable circumstances. Some are exaggerations of real events. Stories that fascinate and are meant to be shared, while being passed along between listeners. ‘Tall Tales’ is a series of work that explores the importance of storytelling and how information changes as it is shared between us. 

This limited edition book is available only through OuterSpace Gallery 

Scorpion Dagger Augmented Book of .GIF Animations

What is an augmented book?

An augmented book looks and feels like a traditional book. Using a specialized app and tablet/phone the viewer can trigger multimedia such as animations by viewing the book through their device’s screen.

With this technology we bring the printed pages of James Kerr's Scorpion Dagger book to life. View his hilarious .gif animations through the screen of your phone while flipping through a finely crafted collectable art book. Help make it happen!

Vojtěch Kubašta paper engineer and pop-up book designer

Beautiful pop-up books and innovative paper engineering by Czech artist Vojtěch Kubašta 

praguepopups3.jpg

When the communist government nationalised the entire publishing industry in 1948, Kubašta had to search for new venues to market his artistic talent. He was involved in designing advertising materials for Czechoslovak products abroad. He created three-dimensional cards that advertised porcelain, sewing machines, pencils, Pilsner beer, sunglasses, and other products. Every Christmas season, he designed and illustrated a new crèche in which he captured the Czech traditional Christmas setting. In 1956, he designed his first fairy tale pop-up bookLittle Red Riding Hood. Kubašta offered this pop-up book to the Prague-based ARTIA publishing house for publication. ARTIA was a state-owned foreign trade corporation.

praguepopups18.jpg

During the years that followed, Vojtěch Kubašta's three-dimensional books made him the publishing house's best-known book designer and illustrator. His pop-up books have been published in 24 different languages and 35 million copies have been sold. Today, original editions of his illustrations and books are sought after by collectors from around the world.

Ken Carbone Curiously Curious Journals

The importance of artist journals and sketch books 

Journals are one of the most important tools for an artist/scientist/musician... to slow down and capture inspiration. The ideas generated may not be ready for development but can be re-discovered at a later time. The Curiously Curious journals of Ken Carbone are a perfect example. After witnessing the private journals of Paul Gauguin, Carbone began creating journals for his ideas and the happenings around him. Carbone uses a basic store bought journal and transforms the book by adding a leather cover which he customizes using leather dyes.

An Art Book From One Piece of Paper

Eddie-Martinez-Artist-Seeker-Cover.jpg

We would like to share a method for artists to create their own unique art books, utilizing only one piece of paper. Eddie Martinez's Art Book, SEEKER was created with this method. This artist book was screen-printed on a large sheet of paper, hand folded and cut in a way that folds into a book. 

The video below shows a step-by-step process how to make your own art zine.

Screen-printing the large sheet that would be later folded down into the SEEKER book.
