Laser Cut Art by Carlos Aires

I bet you’ve never seen laser cut vinyl art. And if you have, then why have you been keeping it from me for so long? I wanted to experience the awesomeness too, damn it.

They may not play music any longer, but these records definitely have something to say. Artist Carlos Aires created this series, entitled “Love is in the Air”, by using a digital process to laser-cut shapes drawn from images of pornography and disaster and juxtaposing them with innocent scenes of animals and children.

It may not be obvious at first, but this laser-cut vinyl art is more than just simple shapes. What is suggested but not shown is just as much a part of each work as the silhouette itself, and even the text on each record imbues subtle meaning – such as the “Touch Me” title on the body of a muscled man.

Mostly known for his photography, Aires is certainly known for deviating from the conventional in his art, which consists of uncommon subjects like dwarfs and parks known for gay se* cruising in a hazy, fairytale-esque style that imitates romantic painting.
Raised in Spain and currently dividing his time between his birth city of Málaga and Antwerp, Belgium, Aires earned an MA in Photography at Ohio State University. His entire portfolio can be viewed on his website.

The Oldest DJ in The World – 70-Year Old Grandma

70-year-old Ruth Flowers is a living example that age shouldn’t get in the way of things you’re passionate about. Like Bette Calman, the Yoga super-granny, Ruth does extraordinary things, for her age. Known as “Mammy Rock“, around the European club scene, Ruth Flowers is probably the oldest professional DJ in the world. The British granny wears bling-bling headphones, trendy clothes and sports an electrifying hear-do as she works the turntables in popular clubs, in France.

Mammy Rock’s career began when she was 65. Her grandson was celebrating his birthday in a London nightclub, and asked Ruth to join him and his friends. There were a few problems with the bouncers, who didn’t feel right letting a senior citizen inside such an establishment, but as soon as she stepped in, Mammy Rock was bewitched by the lively atmosphere that made her feel so much younger. Even though some have said it all seems like a joke — and yes, part of the act’s appeal comes from its novelty – the proof is in the pudding. We think she’s actually really good!

Kseniya Simonova (born 1985 as Ксения Симонова) is a Ukrainian sand animator who is the winner of “2009 Ukraine’s Got Talent.” She started drawing with sand after her business collapsed due to the early 21st century credit crunch and had been drawing for less than a year when she entered Ukraine’s Got Talent. She performed her talent in that show by constructing an animation that portrayed life during the USSR’s Great Patriotic War against the Third Reich in World War II using a giant light box, dramatic music, imagination and her “sand painting” skills. She is a great artist as well as a story teller; she tells story with her sand painting skill.
