Beautiful Paintings on Fallen Tree Logs Mirror Their Natural Origins

Artist Alison Moritsugu captures the essence of Mother Nature in her log paintings. These environmental pieces utilize trees as both the subject and the canvas. The fragmented nature of the trees allow the designer to paint directly onto the rustic wood. Once her realistic work is complete, what results is a painting that explores the history of American landscapes. Moritsugu allows viewers to see what America was like when settlers first arrived and additionally depicts the destructive effects of industrialization. 

Transgresyon Sineması

1980′lerin New York’unda bir garip manifesto yayınlandı; ‘’Cinema Of Transgression’’. Manifestoda, ‘’hiçbir şeyin kutsal olmadığının’’ ve ‘’tüm sinema okullarının havaya uçurulmasının gerekliliği’’ üzerinde duruluyordu. Geleneksel değerleri yücelten bir algıyla film yapılamayacağı ve yasaları, emirleri, görevleri ihlal etmeyen akademik sinema dilini çiğnemeden özgün bir yaratımın söz konusu olamayacağı aşikardı. Tabularla zincirlenmiş köle bir dünyada, özgürlüğe yaklaşmak ve daha aşkın bir düzlemde var olabilmek için transgresif dönüşümün zorunluluğunu vurgulayan Nick Zedd’in yeraltından yükselen sesi, Richard Kern, Scott B, Jon Moritsugu, Tessa Hughes-Freeland, Tommy Turner, David Wojnarowicz, Casandra Stark gibi bir çok yönetmen ve yapımcıda öfke nöbetlerini tetikleyecekti.

Word of the Day: Boîte

boîte \bwaht; Fr. bwat\, noun:

a nightclub; cabaret.

Three more people entered the boîte and one of them was Clarisse. She saw Daniel, nodded without smiling and looked for a place to sit.
– Hugh MacLennan, Return of the Sphinx, 1967

You’re here now, at this groovy new boîte, for instance.
– Kim Moritsugu, The Restoration of Emily, 2006

Boîte entered English in the early 1900s from the French word of the same spelling, which literally means “box” but is also used to refer to a nightclub, from the phrase boîte de nuit which means “box of the night.”

Word of the Day: Cede

cede \seed\, verb:

to yield or formally surrender to another: to cede territory.

There are those who have accused me of being broken by the mistakes I’ve made in my life, crippled to the point where I would rathercede power than wield it.
– Nick Sagan, Everfree, 2006

I gather I’m supposed to cede her points for those resumés, but I’m bored of this game we’re playing for I know not what prize or reason.
– Kim Moritsugu, The Restoration of Emily, 2006

Cede is derived from the Latin word cēdere meaning “to go, yield.” It entered English in the 1620s.
