Things Organized Neatly

Looking at Austin Radcliffe's images of things organized neatly makes me feel instantly relaxed.

Hold it All

“We are constantly trying to hold it all together. If you really want to see why you do things, then don’t do them and see what happens.”
― Michael A. Singer

The Power of Clouds

This video by Mike Olbinski, capturing gathering storms in glorious black and white, is fully stunning. BEHOLD, THE POWER OF CLOUDS!

Children and Social Media

Normally when I read articles about the vile dangers of social media, I get kind of annoyed. Yes, there are inherent dangers there, but it's also how you use it. This account from a mother re-evaluating her social media practices around posting photos of her daughter feels different to me. She is honest about the problems and confronts herself with tough questions that get to the real heart of things: why does she post, for whom, and what could they do with the information?


Photographer Joseph Ford and knitter Nina Dodd have partnered to create this joyful little art project: people wearing hand-knit sweaters that blend them into their backgrounds. I love it!

Also, Nina Dodd calls herself "The Duke of Woollington" on her website! Beaut!

Stick it to the Man

Artist Nikolas Bentel is going to ruin a piece of original art, for the sake of art. As a statement against the financial and corporate focus he sees in the fine art market, he will sell off advertising space on an original Robert Rauschenberg, sticking logos and ads all over it until it is completely covered.

When I first heard about this, I rolled my eyes at the artsy stunt, but now I'm on board! If you think the art market is ruining the value of art, then use the market to ruin a piece of valuable art! Do it! Damn the man!
