Cameron Stalheim creates mixed-media sculptures that indulge the stuff of nightmares. His most recent work, and then I saw Colby on the Street and my fantasy died, is a striking depiction of a collapsed merman taking his last breaths. Several times longer than human height, the sculpture confronts us with an image of death: in this case, the death of our collective childhood fantasies (who didn’t want to live among the mermaids when they were young?). Read more on Hi-Fructose.

Amazing work.

Hyperallergic is proud to announce that we’re the media partner for the 2014 Elastic City Walks Festival. If you’ve never heard of Elastic City, it’s an organization that commissions artists from all different fields — visual, dance, theater, etc. — to create participatory walks. The walks are basically a way of shaping experience, of breaking open your everyday routine to help you interact with the world differently. And so each Elastic City artist leads a small group of people through a space and a set of exercises built around an idea or a theme, and ideally you walk away with a new — or at least altered — perspective. Think performance art, but much more participatory.

 DID YOU KNOW? 
Robin Williams was considered for the role of The Joker in Tim Burton’s Batman (1989) when Nicholson hesitated. Williams was offered the role, but when Nicholson decided to take it, Warner Brothers let Williams go. Williams was offended that the company used him as bait to grab Nicholson for the role, and rejected the chance to play The Riddler in Batman Forever (1995). He also refused to work with Warner Brothers until they apologized. 
Although I keep this blog focused on facts and history about Batman, I thought, because of recent events, it would be nice if we all tips our hats to Robin Williams. He couldn’t have been The Joker, though…because he would’ve even made Batman laugh. RIP Robin Williams 


He would have been a perfect Joker.

And scientists are discovering that the brain controls how we respond to pain signals. For example, how much pain you feel can depend on whether you’re paying attention to the pain, or even your mood.
