say hi to forever

Sea kettle. by Anette Sandberg

we up all night to get lucky

Time is the raw material of creation. Wipe away the magic and myth of creating and all that remains is work: the work of becoming expert through study and practice, the work of finding solutions to problems and problems with those solutions, the work of trial and error, the work of thinking and perfecting, the work of creating. Creating consumes. It is all day, every day. It knows neither weekends nor vacations. It is not when we feel like it. It is habit, compulsion, obsession, vocation. The common thread that links creators is how they spend their time. No matter what you read, no matter what they claim, nearly all creators spend nearly all their time on the work of creation. There are few overnight successes and many up-all-night successes.

Sam Amidon - My Old Friend

this is the happiest sad song ever


like the moves

Иногда лишь необыкновенное потрясение способно перевести нас из мертвого состояния к живому ощущению. Однако нередко даже самая сильная встряска не может обратить мертвое состояние в живое. Удары, приходящие извне (болезнь, несчастье, заботы, война, революция), на краткое или долгое время насильственно отрывают от традиционных привычек, но воспринимаются, как правило, лишь как более или менее навязанная несправедливость. При этом все прочие чувства перевешивает желание как можно скорее вернуться к утраченному привычному состоянию.

Cultural Appropriation: A conversation by Sanaa Hamid

This body of work is an exploration of the extent of cultural appropriation and encourages a discussion about it. I give the appropriator and the appropriated the opportunity to defend themselves and create a dialogue between them, while maintaining a neutral stance myself. I am not attacking those who appropriate, merely educating and creating awareness. Neutrality is key in this series, as i remove myself from my political and social status and opinions, stripping the problem to the most basic issue; taking an item that means a great deal to somebody and corrupting it.
