ArtStreet's New Media Evolution

We've partnered with the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation for a radical project - an artistic enterprise unlike anything we've attempted before. WLRN is teaming up with the most exciting artists, musicians and performers in south Florida to collaborate on a series of videos designed for the web.

These videos will be fun, playful and creative. They will make history as Miami's artists take part in a project to define the city itself, using the tools of the internet age.

Jen Stark's Newest Papermation

Local paper artist Jen Stark has just released her most ambitious Papermation to date - this one is a music video for underground electronic musician Dan Deacon. It's mesmerizing and wonderful. Learn more about Jen by going to her site, reading the Miami New Times profile or by watching her ArtStreet Segment.

Jillian Mayer's 'I Am Your Grandma' Terrifies and Delights

The following video was created by local Miami multi-media and performance artist Jillian Mayer. It's a video note to her future grandchildren and it must be seen to be believed. Mayer recently held her first solo exhibition at the David Castillo Gallery in Wynwood, where this video played along side several other wonderfully weird pieces. The New Times review is here. "I am your Grandma" premiered at the 2011 Borscht Film Festival before hitting YouTube, where it has spread like wildfire.

With over 650,000 views, the video has inspired remakes, remixes and fan videos like the ridiculous "I Am Your Grandpa"

Lil Daggers Video - Matthew Prickett

Matthew Prickett is a local filmmaker we've only just heard about - he directed this music video for local outfit Lil Daggers. Apparently, Matthew works full time at ad agency Crispin+Porter, and does this sort of work in his off hours. We like the hustle. Keep it up.
