Et cetera

To achieve the impossible, it is precisely the unthinkable that must be thought.

In Installation of 4200 Strings of Rice Grains bySayaka Ishizuka


The villagers of Inakadate aren’t the only ones getting creative with their rice. Japanese artist Sayaka Ishizuka is showing new work at Pearl Lam Gallery in Shanghai. “Life Threads” is a walk-in installation consisting of, among other things, 4200 handmade strings of rice grains hung from the ceiling. The work, which took 18 months to complete, looks like rain pouring down onto the earth and being collected in old antique bowls and jars. There is a strong sense of life and interconnectedness throughout the entire piece, given how closely rain, rice and life are intertwined with each other, especially in Asian cultures.

Life Threads is on display through August 23, 2014.

Magical Paths Begging To Be Walked

Roads and paths pervade our literature, poetry, artwork, linguistic expressions and music. Even photographers can’t keep their eyes (and lenses) off of a beautiful road or path, which is why we collected this list of 28 amazing photos of paths.

Paths like these have a powerful grip on the human imagination – they can bring adventure, promise and change or solitude, peace and calm. There’s nothing like a walk down a beautiful path to clear your head – or to fill it with ideas!

I’ll leave you with an excellent quote from J. R. R. Tolkien’s works while you enjoy these images; “It’s a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.

Cai Guo-Qiang: Amazing sculptures in the best museums

"Inopportune: Stage Two,” 2004 Tigers:

Entering the tiger room, you see the violent act- tigers with arrows pierced into their bodies and there’s a very visceral response. Even though it’s completely fake, the tigers are so realistically made that the audience feels pain when they see the them. The pain is not in the tigers, which obviously can’t feel. The pain is really in the person who’s viewing this. So it’s through the artwork, because it represents pain, that one feels this pain and has this very visceral relationship or reaction to it.”- Cai Guo-Qiang
