I just felt the need to upload this since nobody’s done it yet.
I love Nigerian music. So much.
Justin Timberlake might be preparing the second part of his “The 20/20 Experience” album, but that won’t stop him from lifting a third single from the first half. “Tunnel Vision” is the track he decided to push and he has really done the right single choice. The Timbaland-produced track serves as one of the most obvious single choices and reminds of old school Timbo and JT a lot. It’s sensual and confident, building with suspense, holding back just as much as it should and breaking it all down at the right time, while Justin shows what kind of a professional he is with his singing style and the extensive use of his falsetto. The truth is “Tunnel Vision” is so f-ing long that you’ll probably think twice before listening to it if you know the duration beforehand. However, it manages to keep your attention for a good almost-seven minutes without a single sign of bore. Amazing in every way and to be honest, I wouldn’t have picked a better single myself. Slay JT!
The Edge Effect, 2012
Artist’s statement: “In March of 2012, I was awarded an artist’s residency by the United States National Park Service in southern California’s Joshua Tree National Park. While staying in the Park, I spent much of my time visiting the borderlands of the park and the areas where the low Sonoran desert meets the high Mojave desert. While hiking and driving, I caught glimpses of the border space created by the meeting of distinct ecosystems in juxtaposition, referred to as the Edge Effect in the ecological sciences. To document this unique confluence of terrains, I hiked out a large mirror and painter’s easel into the wilderness and captured opposing elements within the environment. Using a single visual plane, this series of images unifies the play of temporal phenomena, contrasts of color and texture, and natural interactions of the environment itself.”
