Alex John Beck: Both Sides Of

Sunday, February 9th, 2014


Photographer Alex John Beck takes photos of your face, then mirrors them to see how different they are… It’s pretty radical to see how different your 2 halves are, and how the two make you unique. Stunning project.

Street Pianos: Play Me, I’m Yours

Saturday, September 28th, 2013

I was charmed yesterday over dinner outside when a piano painted over from local artist  had a sign that said “Play me, I’m Yours”, and within minutes a variety of pianist, singers, and groups formed around making music to everyones ears. The Street Piano Project is pretty simple. Touring pianos placed in public spaces inviting anyone to play as long, or short, and whatever they would like. Several videos are recorded and put on their site. Pretty amazing. Boston has the 1,000th placed piano though pianos have been placed globally over the past few years. Check it out, and see if a piano is visiting your city soon.

Videos from around the world. FInd your city and look at the videos.

Amanda Palmer: The art of asking

Thursday, March 7th, 2013

A very inspirational outgoing talk by Amanda Palmer at TED this year! Simply Awesome lady.

“Don’t make people pay for music, says Amanda Palmer: Let them. In a passionate talk that begins in her days as a street performer (drop a dollar in the hat for the Eight-Foot Bride!), she examines the new relationship between artist and fan.

Alt-rock icon Amanda Fucking Palmer believes we shouldn’t fight the fact that digital content is freely shareable — and suggests that artists can and should be directly supported by fans”

Etsuko Ichikawa: Molten Glass Drawings

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

Wow, this is breathtaking and beautiful…drawing with molten lava on paper to burn to draw. My favorite part is when she whisks the molten lava forming slivers of torched thin glass on the paper which comes awfully close to her shoes which happens often.  Seems like something from a martial arts movie for a weapon that you cant block…

 

“Artist Etsuko Ichikawa’s searing creations spring to life in 2100°/451°, a spellbinding film by Alistair Banks Griffin for The Anthropologist.”
