"You always learn from observing. You have to pick things up nonverbally because people will never tell you what you’re supposed to know. You have to get it for yourself: whatever it is that you need in order to survive. You become strong by doing the things you need to be strong for. This is the way genuine learning takes place."
 Audre Lorde, from an interview dated April 1981 (via violentwavesofemotion)

"There’s this giant cathedral in Cologne that survived the Allied bombings of World War II. All the other buildings around it were destroyed. One time I was super high on E and mushrooms, so I decide to drop in. The cathedral is made of black marble and the walls are stained with soot, so it was really creepy. On top of that, the place was packed with people, and there was a priest at the altar shouting angrily in German. I was like: ‘Oh. My. God.’"

You know what’s awesome? A donkey lamb taxi. That sounds like a band name. Hey, when’s the next Donkey Lamb Taxi show?

When sheep herders in the hills of Lombardy, Italy need to move their flocks toward better grazing land, the wee lambs get a little help keeping up with their woolly family. Helpful donkeys are fitted with sets of special lamb-sized pouches. It’s ridiculously cute and cozy mass transit in the form of live taxis who are content to graze right along side the sheep.

Eadweard Muybridge
After edit. Cleaning this image in Photoshop presented many challenges.  Without over- exposing the image, it was difficult to exaggerate the lines and detailing of the muscles and bones. Overall, however, I think this images has been successful in what I set out to achieve.

galloping horse. the inspiration for all of modern art, pretty much.

The Machines Have Become Integral … | Katie Shima | The Draftery

Following her own constraints to their eventual ends, Shima’s drawings demonstrate the logically nonsensical character inherent to any set of drawings. Her traditional drafting techniques take full advantage of drawing’s status as an art object, meanwhile her subject matter taps into our modernist anxieties. It is unclear if these naturalized formations of mechanical pieces have been constructed or heaped; even what appear to be partial views of Fritz Kahn-like bodies provide no grounding figure or context to pull us outside of Shima’s playful ambiguity. The horizon fades to white before we find our way inside.
