Johanna Goodman pieces together fantastic, high fashion collages

Flowing gowns made of pink smoke. Haute couture hobbled together with blocks of wood. This is the idealized world Johanna Goodman is creating in her series The Catalouge of Imaginary Beings. Johanna describes the series as way to “explore a range of themes in popular culture – the role of the individual in fashion, history, the artistic imagination and the collective consciousness. The body of work draws its inspiration from Magical Realism, Surrealism and Symbolism and references such cultural artifacts as talismans, idols, and totems.”

The abstract nature of these feel playful and fun. Arms and legs jut out of tree stumps and the bits of background elements help to give each piece a bit of grounding, a sense of a world one could explore.

Mark Pritchard’s “Beautiful People” featuring Thom Yorke

Mark Pritchard - Beautiful People music video

Since 1991, Mark Pritchard has been making genre-spanning electronic music that ventures from House, to Ambient, to Drum and Bass. His most recent effort Under The Sun was aptly described by Pitchfork as “deeply atmospheric and richly impressionistic, Under the Sun is an easy album to disappear into.” The album feels like science fiction journey with moments of wonder and mystery.

The music video for “Beautiful People” is a perfect manifestation of this feeling. The song features TFIB favorite Thom Yorke, both vocally and as a transcendent robotic spirit wandering a seemingly deflate landscape. Director Michal Marczak has truly encapsulated the feeling of the album into six minutes of visual narrative.
