Buenos Aires — Artists illustrating the artistic benefits of having a venti-sized Starbucks cup as your canvas.
Okay Starbucks sponsored tumblr ad, you got me. You rolled art and Argentina together in gif form and I must reblog it. Also I am so happy to be back in Seattle where your terrifying mostly-benevolent presence permeates the city.
(Argentina only recently got its first Starbucks)
Awwww noooo too cute! Renzo just grabbed his face with both paws in his sleep and pulled his head in tighter to his sleeping ball. These are the moments I can maybe see getting google glasses for. So I can maybe catch them on video. But yeah no way.
Our really hot Fatalli pepper plant has produced over 100 peppers. 97 of them are in our fridge and the plant still has dozens more on it getting riper every day.
This plant is a BEAST.
I wouldn’t be able to walk in the heel and they were really expensive, but I kindof love these horrible suede boots I didn’t buy last week. Good thing I took a picture because that’s as close as I’d get to ever wearing them.
Glad I read this before I shelled out $13.00 for this lie :-/
Mixed Media Aquarium Sculptures by Mariele Neudecker Mimic Paintings and Photographs
In a fascinating blend of chemistry and sculpture, artist Mariele Neudecker builds three dimensional images contained within large aquariums, an ongoing series she refers to as “Tank Works.” Starting with source materials that include romantic paintings and photographs, Neudecker creates environments that attempt to interpret the 2D imagery in three dimensional space. The representational pieces are contained entirely within glass tanks filled to the brim with water that also contain fiberglass mountains, model ships, and other sculptural objects. She also adds chemicals that provide an element of atmosphere while also forming a sort of contained climate that changes gradually over the course of days, weeks, and months.
While primarily a sculptor Neudecker also works with film, video, and installation, much more of which you can see on her website. She discuss her tank works a bit more in this 2009 interview with CAFKATV.
