Fran Lebowitz. New York City vocalized. I like to think of her as Woody Allen’s nemesis.

“Persistent Pyramids”.

by Savvy

My sister has an obsession with [many things, being an artist] things that point skywards, mounds, in nature and man made. In my research one day i came across two things that reminded me of something similar, and saw what other ‘artists’ [i put artist in”s because aren’t we all artists in our own right?] have done with similar natural phenomena.

This set on Flickr is some digital collage manipulation like i haven’t seen before, as if reality is malleable and the result is something clever and surreal.

Persistent Pyramids – – Anatoly Zenkov

[As i don’t speak russian [YET] i have no idea what is going on on his website here but i still successfully entertained myself.]

Animal 6th sense.

by Savvy

Daniel Arsham’s Animal Architecture drawings.
i love them all so much.

a)because i love etching,
b)because i love animals and
c)because they are etchings of animals (see b) and floating geometrical shapes. FLOATING. SHAPES.
the juxtaposition of these objects within a natural environment emphasises the contrast between them and highlights the fact that these objects are un-natural? hence defying nature and its laws, such as gravity?

the piece each uses this traditional etching-like technique to portray  pieces of modernist architectural ruins next to animals and lush nature. the animals in each piece are used by arsham to portray what he calls a ‘post-human quality’.” – – you got that right.

Splice mail art.

by Savvy

A thoughtful mail art project by my dear friend Ruben. Feel free to contribute!


http://splicemailart.wordpress.com/

A mail art project brought to you by Ruben and friends.

Ruben Cooke began cancer treatment for relapsed Hodgkins Lymphoma at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford in the month of January, 2010.

This project has been designed to provide some distraction from the reality of his situation. We plan to exhibit some or all of the work received, upon completion of Ruben’s treatment.

Our theme, splice has multiple definitions but, crucially, contains the word ICE, which directly references the combination of chemotherapy Ruben will be receiving for the duration of his treatment.

More information can be found on the website.

“ICETASTIC”

by Savvy

Time for another Katie Paterson.

Langjökull, Snæfellsjökull, Solheimajökull.

Are you wondering what these three long, pretty, almost undecipherable(to meager human beings like I) words are? These are the names of my future triplets.
They will look like this:

Three glacier ice records, played until they melt.

listen.

Sound recordings from three glaciers in Iceland, pressed into three records, cast, and frozen with the meltwater from each of these glaciers, and played on three turntables until they completely melt“.

Awesome.
