A moving piece by Jacob Cass.
A massive 8.9-magnitude quake hit northeast Japan on Friday, causing dozens of deaths, more than 80 fires, and a 10-meter (33-ft) tsunami along parts of the country’s coastline.
In response, I created a small tribute piece which I shared on Dribbble and soon after on Twitter. I found it humbling to see people changing their Facebook & Twitter profile pictures to this image to show their support. I thought I would officially share the image & source here for people to use as they wish.
Too funny not to share! In a shoot gone wrong, Israeli model and actress Orit Fox was bitten by the snake she was interacting with, on her breast. Fortunately for the model it was silicone, unfortunately for the snake it was silicon. It died.
They really should rename this news flash: ‘Eve’s Revenge’. Via News Amen.
Beautiful work with just lights and smoke. by Anthony McCall.
Sprüth Magers Berlin London is delighted to present a major solo exhibition by Anthony McCall featuring ‘Vertical Works’ at Ambika P3, University of Westminster and works on paper at Sprüth Magers London. Internationally recognised for groundbreaking work which occupies a space between sculpture, cinema and drawing, British-born McCall trained at Ravensbourne College of Art & Design in the mid 1960s. Shortly afterwards, in the early 1970s, he began working with performance and film, initially through a series of open-air performances which were significant for their minimal use of elements such as fire.

Our universal language. Via The Big Picture.
The dictionary defines it as “to move one’s feet or body, or both, rhythmically in a pattern of steps, especially to the accompaniment of music.” People around the world, however, have their own definitions of dance, as exemplified by these images taken since the first of the year. And such expressions can celebrate a culture, win a competition, make a living, entertain a crowd, and play a role in propelling social change. Get those bodies and feet moving. — Lloyd Young
Designer John Leung from ClarkeHopkinsClarke Architects brought us the Parallel of Time Clock last year. Now he presents the “Bias of Thoughts” Bookshelf. Based loosely on a famous optical illusion, this Escher-esque shelf makes your head hurt everytime you move and change your perspective.
Thoughts are biased. When ideas are passed from one person to another, due to the transfiguration of the communication process and the frame of mind of the receiver, they are always perceived with bias.
Inspired by the famous 2D drawing of the optical illusive bookshelf, a 3D structure is translated and the “Bias of Thought” bookshelf is formed. It can be used for shelving books and iPads as well as hanging magazines. Visually, the optical illusion serves as a reminder that, whenever one picks up a medium, ideas can be misinterpreted when passed from one end to the other.
