These awesome illuminated inflatable white rabbits are the work of Australian artist Amanda Parer for an installation entitled Intrude. In May 2014 the giant glowing bunnies were installed at the Vivid Festival of Light Sydney and next month they’ll be part of the Junction Arts Festival in Launceston, Tasmania.

Parer’s enormous and radiant rabbits, which stand 7 meters (~23 feet) tall, were created as a twofold response to the animals’ common occurrence in Australian fairytales as well as their invasive presence throughout Australia:

“These animals first travelled to Australia on the ships of the First Fleet and were brought ashore in cages in January 1788. These adaptable creatures quickly made themselves at home and eventually spread to almost every corner of the land. An Australian contradiction, Intrude represents the fairy-tale animals of our childhood – a furry innocence, frolicking through idyllic fields, while revealing their more serious and large-scale effect on the environment.”

Done and done. I’m really happy with everything about this. I’m pleased with my design, the work, everything. I’m also really happy to finally have this done, Roosterteeth and Achievement Hunter have become to important to my entire existence. Though I definitely owe Amanda a large portion of all of that for sitting me down and watching lets plays with me way back when. So thank you<3 #achievementhunter #roosterteeth #tattoo #burnieburns

Brooklyn-based artist Amanda Browder creates colorful, large-scale fabric art installations wrapped around building exteriors and other public sites. One of the things that makes her artwork so awesome is how each piece becomes a community project with local volunteers donating fabric, gathering to help sew it all together, and installing it on-site.

Browder has said, “The idea is that it is similar to a rainbow—a happenstance encounter with something so awesome that you would tell more than one person about it—and that conversation, construction, and reinterpretation is just as unique as the piece.”

For her most recent project, entitled Spectral Locus, Browder was invited to Buffalo, NY by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, where she and her volunteers are currently creating a trio of dazzlingly vibrant installations. Pictured above is Spectral Locus on the Richmond Ferry Church (aka the Rosanna Elizabeth Visual and Performing Arts Center), which was completed just last week. The third building, Clifton Hall, will be wrapped in fabric this week.

hello friends

Situation is getting increasingly dire. I’ve been lucky enough to get some serious unexpected help and should be able to take every cent I have and hopefully get into a place within the week and not be homeless (yay!). Now I’m working on conjuring funds to put directly back into my savings from this point onward until I start my new job.

Friendly reminder I have some stuff I am getting rid of, such as:
