Photographer Rune Guneriussen somehow manages to breath a strange and sometimes eerie life into inanimate objects. It is a fascinating meld of both subject and environment.

It appears that the crazy kids behind ‘Oh Yeah‘ have updated their site with all kinds of newness. I don’t know what is going down in Oslo but it sure looks like a good time. There is an enormous amount of work on the site and it is all pretty quality.

Just a squirrel in this world trying to get an oil covered diamond.

Jonas Odell (co-founder and director at Film Tecknarna) along with Nexus Productions, helped produce this 80′s inspired, Warhol-collage video for Norwegian rocker Ida Maria.

You can watch it here. Not sure why they won’t let you embed it though.

I am digging it.

oh_yeah.jpg

Oh Yeah is the work of Oslo-based designer/artist/photographers Christina and Hans. They claim they like to do their work after dinner. I translate that as they probably hold down day jobs and have to do the bulk of their creative in the evening after earning their rent money. I think many of us have found ourselves in a similar situation.

Although I am not really a fan of how their website functions, there is an enormous amount of work to view. It looks as though they work in a serial nature creating strange little clusters of work that ranges from design, art for art’s sake and photography. All of it is very original and unique.
