1. Frank Hülsbömer

Using photography as his medium, artist Frank Hülsbömer documents his love affair with objects. The upshot, beautifully-composed, abstract images of various items like colored paper and wire, star in his forthcoming book, The Fiction of Science, along with a detailed explanation of the Berlin-based photographer's both scientific and artistic approach to capturing each article.
A former contributor to Wallpaper Magazine, Hülsbömer made a name for himself photographing exteriors. Applying his studious method to interiors, the lyrical images in his book show how the shift brings an intense concentration on pure form to his work.
Described by curator Matthias Harder as "still lifes," Hülsbömer compositions exclude all signals of a human touch and any reference to landscapes, with minimal acknowledgment of the photographic element. His undoctored, multi-faceted photos make for, as he puts it, "a neutralisation of the senses."

5. Method Man Sour Patch Kids Rap - World Gone Sour

The Gremlins, The Smurfs and creepy little pipsqueaks of all persuasions have nothing on The Sour Patch Kids, whose true personality comes out in Method Man's latest music video, for his single "World Gone Sour (The Lost Kids)," created and produced out of Mother New York. Directed by Hungry Man's Taika Waititi, the clip reveals what happens when Sour Patch Kids don't fulfill their destiny of being eaten, perhaps relegated to the gap in your couch cushions or trapped beneath the floorboards.

The music video is just one part of Mother's new campaign for the kids, which later this year will debut the upcoming Sour Patch Kids video game, "World Gone Sour." Created for multiple consoles, players shrink down to candy size and battle the deranged candy kids who wreak all sorts of havoc like Gizmo on water. Fans can check into the Sour Patch Kids Facebook page for updates on the upcoming game.
