I am dying …

pugstiel and I bought these clothes for West and Maison in Hong Kong last summer.

When I gave them to Misha in asylum 14, I was so afraid that the clothes aren’t gonna fit (esp as I have no idea what Maison’s size is)

Luckily they fit!! haha and seems that West and Maison really love them

This is literally a dream come true, I have no idea Misha was going to take them back home and let his kids wear them…. let alone taking a photo and uploading them on twitter

Misha you totally made my day :D

In most asylum buildings, the administrative portion - which usually lies at the center - is the most robustly constructed and sturdy area of the building.  In the Walters Building at Rochester State Hospital, however, it is anything but - whereas most of the building is in a condition that is absolutely fit for rehabilitation, the administrative wing (which held the medical/surgical and dental offices, x-ray suite, etc) is anything but.  Here, water damage through the shattered roof has pulled down reddish-pink insulation, dropping it onto a carpet of moss, ferns, and small plants.  The flourescent lighting banks have drooped, creating a weird, roller-coaster-esque feel.  An oddity in an odd building.

  Colorful 3D Animal Murals by  Artur Bordalo (aka Bordalo II) 

on Facebook

 Artur Bordalo (aka Bordalo II) is a street artist who has created a series of wall-sized animal murals using paint and clever reconfigurations of recycled trash. Among his “found” materials are scrap metal, tires, tubing, and crushed bumpers — anything that has been produced, used, and thrown away to last an eternity in the landfill. Stunningly, Bordalo has turned such tarnished objects into delicate feathers, soft fur, and complex exoskeletons, paying a bold homage to the animals he represents. In a clever blend of 2D and 3D art, the creations emerge from the walls like brilliant optical illusions, demanding our attention and curiosity.  via Beautiful/Decay

Jessica Dalva: Hapax Legomena

Jessica Dalva’s show Hapax Legomena is at La Luz de Jesus through May 31st. I love the unearthly beauty of these figures with their milky eyes, poignant, haunting expressions, and intensely eloquent bodies, posed within their black frames.

The term “Hapax Legomena” is used to describe words that only appear once in a text or language, often rendering them untranslatable. Each piece in this series revolves around an individual word, a facet, a unique expression of a part of the complex variety of personal battles we fight….The show focuses on one’s relationship with oneself, internal wars, and the entanglements of love. The sculptures are a navigation through fears, moments of clarity and joy, and nightmares.
