We are microscopic ants on a piece of dust in the grand scope of things. Check out this video…
I recall as young child I used to sit and contemplate space and the ‘edge of space’. I used to wonder…if there was nothing, no space, no planets, absolute nothing…where would the nothing be?
If you could travel in space (à la Star Trek) and explore other planets would you?
Two things that don’t go together…cute and cuddly Hello Kitty and a chainsaw, the serial killers weapon if choice if you live in Texas. Almost makes this frightening piece of machinery appear adorable.

James Franco‘s solo art show titled “The Dangerous Book Four Boys” incorporates sculpture, photography, drawing, film and video all of which centers on ideas of boyhood and the sexual awakening of the early teenage years.
The exhibit is at the Clocktower Gallery in New York (the PS1-affiliated space) and has been described by the Wall Street Journal as “sort of creative schizophrenia”. The show includes a video of Franco wearing a prosthetic penis on his nose and another display with said prosthetic under glass.
From the looks of these preview photos, the Journal described it perfectly. It reminds me of Dadaism to the extreme.
Angular Momentum debuts their new Aquarium model timepiece, part of their Artisan Timepiece Collection. ‘A Koi in a muddy pond’ comes engraved in 925 silver, purple gold with a Ruthenium treated surface. The Koi fish has a diamond eye and the black mud is black ‘Ishime’ style Urushi ground. Urushi is sap that is tapped from the trunk of the Lacquer Tree also called Varnish Tree and Japanese Lacquer Tree.
This is done by cutting the trunk of a 10 year old tree horizontally 5-10 times, and then collecting the greyish yellow sap that exudes. The sap is then filtered, heat-treated, or coloured before applying onto a base material that is to be lacquered.
Lane Bennion’s paintings are a study in composition, light and color. He transforms ordinary objects and locations into a window into time.
Bennion studied at University of Utah where he mentored under artists David Dornan, Paul Davis, and Tony Smith. He later went on to graduate in Medical Illustration. Through the university’s art program he learned the technical aspects of how to construct a painting that would invite the viewer to participate in the scene, helping to “finish” the work.
