You Create Your Way, I Will Create Mine

The Human Spirograph:

I enjoy repetitive movement as much as the next, but somehow I don’t think I could find “the music in these circles”.


Thanks for the tip BrainPickings!

Chris Jordan: Art that tells the real story

Chris Jordan’s art tells the true story of our wasteful habits. You think you see it, but definitely need to take a closer look.

This:
is an early post I did on Chris’ work.

Monkey Business: Marlene McCarty


You missed a great gallery show in NYC.  Marlene McCarty’s gigantic pen and ink drawings were a sight to behold.  The detail and beauty in each drawing covered entire walls.  I was on my way out before I picked up the brochure that told the true story behind each drawing.  Dreams, fantasies, and entire other ways of life emerged fully formed but still encompassing that haze of delirium.  I never wanted a big house with big walls until I found these big drawings to cover them with.

Art From Waste: Chris Jordan



I stumbled upon Chris Jordan’s work last year and sent it around to friends.  I just went back to his site and was completely blown away again.  Running The Numbers, An American Self-Portrait is the work.  It “looks at contemporary American culture through the asustere lens of statistics.  Each impage protrays a specific quantity of something.  Statistics canfeel abstract and aneshtetizing, making it difficult to connect with and mke meaning of 3.6 million SUV sales in one year, or 2.3 million Americans in prison, or 32,000 breast augmentation surgeries in the U.S. every month.”

This site could not have been built without the help and insight of Michael Morgenstern. My thanks go out to him.

Help save indie film and give this guy a job in web design or film!
