and thank god for google images! i dont have to tell anyone where any of these came from and its ok!
visual simplicity once again.
Plant Life is like Thug Life. Minus the drugs sex and money. and glocks.
but my philodendron "Philly" is the ultimate G. and Heidi Norton, case yal didn't know is a serious VIP.
She is the Lebron James of plant based artistry.
aside from its visually flooring effects, her work is a complex expression of preservation, reaction, time, impermanence, change and all those sticky issues that are hard to talk about. All things I, myself, am obsessed with.
Shes having a show in San Francisco in November. I will indeed be there buying stuff.

First and Foremost, I'm tired of this blog format and I'm going to change it this weekend, but for now you may or may not have to deal with this composite image being cropped weird. so just click on it and view at original size.
Having a powerful itch for some hyperactive reality augmentation. this could be due to the fact that the sun is shinning is seattle (no way! yes way. ok..it was yesterday) or maybe just because I'm a grown up now and ring pops of for the most part unacceptable. Put these fragments of a treasures laying around my head and desktop forcibly collided this morning and together as a synthesized desire have caused me to experience a phenomena i like to call "ants-in-my-pants" accompanied by rapid heart rate and inability to focus.
lets talk about them:
1. opps, this one this is one of those unrecoverable source images, but it reminds me of Tron and Drive, and the neons signs I used to fawn over as an adolescent
2. Nanoscopic photo sculpture inspired by macro, micro textile effects. um yes.
3. Chemistry, Julia Burdge 2nd Edition, this is why science is the best
4. Also not positive of where this image hails but I've seen many a firey-melty windowscape of glory in downtown Seattle
5. Frankie Rose - "Know Me" video Loving the Cure-ish throw-back sound of this little lady, obviously the blade runner, minority report vibe of the video is feeling timely
6. Another one of those mind blowing tiny plastic fantastic micro mountains from above
7. Reactable! found this a while ago but is still the coolest thing I've seen since. my favorite reactable quote "We knew what wanted, and then we discovered how to build it". those Germans!
8. finally my most recent find. I love finding treasures within my 6 degrees of separation. this one is actually with in 2. check out Frank Correa fantasticly trippy photos, a few featuring a special little lady names Claire. You can vote for this guy to win some bones for is photography here

I'm finding the subject of food especially captivating lately. I'm generally smitten with things that are exceptionally macro but are shrouded in a guise simplicity (a.k.a good design). Food is like, basically the big kahuna when it comes to this type thing.
I've made some connections, here they go :
The way that people create, produce, consume and prepare food should also be considered as a type of performance based narrative that sheds light on our definitions of self and community and the significance of those things in relationship to our environment. Theres no doubt in my mind that as epiphanies regarding the effects of massification start to really sink in, this here America is attempting to re-weave the threads of ritual, spirituality, methodology, and notions of tradition, like we've suddenly awoken from a subsuming fog and are realizing that the house is on fire. There's no use scrambling for the water bucket, you just have to rebuild.
Before I start ranting about the poorly constructed systems and the stuff that keeps fueling them, I'll plug the photos above as I initially intended.
Our style of cooking and the way we experience food is very telling. When I scroll through the digital docu-journal of A.R.H. I can't help but want to physically witness and experience for myself the nourishment of her praxim. As "inspiration" becomes synonymous to something you want to replicate, appropriate, or reproduce, I'm finding that I can tell the difference between true inspiration and the latter. This stuff is the real deal. respect.

According to trend agencies far and near, the second enlightenment is upon us. I am glad to hear this, as I've pondered the notion of finding the intersection where art and science meet and it's there I suspect I'll live out my days and die happily in some beautiful paradox.
A chance click had me upon this treasure of Japanese origin, not surprisingly clean, well lit, beautifully simple goods of quality photographed and present just the way a like. with expression.
My favorite part about Art & Science is Google's translation of this line of text reffering to it's founder : "Sonya Park, only "mono" Really good". Ah men. couldn't have said it better myself.
love. and love some more

The one thing about over-accessaibilty is that even though it may take longer and longer to sift through the garbage, the treasures stand out even more prominently. I think most of us can recognize content with heart and sole, talent, a point of view.
Nadia, is one of my most favorite. breathtaking depictions of real-time curation never seem to be forced or stale when they're coming from her. Go girl.
Frou Frouu it up.

its time for some good old fashion hunter-gatherer field research. All data will be compiled and hopefully be consistent with previous findings that support my very complicated and ground-breaking theory that humans are actually just wild animals. I call it the Cartonian Theory, its a working title.

With so much in my fuzzy fumbling head its a wonder that i can retain knowledge further than what i ate for breakfast, but, every once in a while I make a connection or two and some unified idea musters enough appeal to stake claim on some seriously sought after mental real estate. The idea of the moment favors geometry & biology with a mid-tone of history and societal stigmas and finishing notes touching on the uneasiness akin to being aware of mortal materialism.
Ok that sounds broad but I'm sure blanks will be filled in after watching this video. ITS IMPERATIVE : Divine Proportions
and Reading this Book : Survival of the Prettiest
Or if your lazy and / or have a short attention span and / or are unbelievably busy and popular than you can read this article about the book mentioned above. said NYTimes article seems surprisingly relevant even having been written in 1999 : The Beautiful People
Perhaps this concern for the Hungergame-esque elitism centered around human beauty and the accessibility of manipulating it is why this subject has surfaced again in my brain. Maybe it never left. Maybe its the realization that as a race / society we have not evolved. Binding heads, Stretching necks, piercing and dyeing are age old methods to appear a way which is considered more attractive to a potential mate, to your self, heck, to your mother. Maybe I'm getting older and i'm tactically acquiring information in the hopes of combating emotions.
Who knows. Similarly it may be in response to a pre-quarter-life crisis in which I color my hair an unnaturally vibrant shade of crimson. oh yeah. it happened.
but geez, shapes sure are pretty.
