Between 9 P.M. and midnight on Saturday, the southern face of the Empire State Building became a giant projection screen filled with images of a snow leopard, a manta ray, and other imperilled land and sea creatures. The event, “Projecting Change: The Empire State Building,” devised by Louie Psihoyos, the executive director of Oceanic Preservation Society, and the filmmaker and photographer Travis Threlkel, was a union of art, activism, and ambitious publicity stunt, designed to call attention to the plight of endangered species.

Lunar Surface - The Incinerator

Continuation of project by Kimchi & Chips takes their Lunar Surface project into a new setting, an incinerator in South Korea - a virtual entity is projected on a sawying sheet which can be realized through long exposure photography:

Lunar Surface renders a shared manifold between reality virtuality, presence and absence.

A strong wind creating a deep breathing of new air into the incinerator which has been closed for five years.

What do INFPs love and hate in a friend?

People have idiosyncratic preferences and triggers that are not related to type, so I cannot account for those sorts of factors. Logically speaking, every type tends to love qualities that they value and hate qualities that they devalue. For INFPs, they will value Fi and Ne qualities because these are their strengths, and devalue Si and Te qualities because these are likely their weaknesses. People often unconsciously project their own weaknesses onto others, meaning they dislike those qualities in other people, often not realizing that they are actually disliking aspects of themselves.



Project from artist Robert Seidel projects ‘laser drawings’ onto the San Andreas Fault to produce long exposure photographs:

This online exhibition showcases long exposure photographs of Robert Seidel’s “environmental laser drawings” captured in collaboration with Epicenter Projects curator Cristopher Cichocki. Spanning from the Coachella Valley to the edge of the Imperial Valley’s Salton Sea, this series of time-based laser drawings was developed alongside the mountain terrain of the San Andreas Fault. To begin, Seidel derived each laser pattern from creating digital line drawings: gestural markings suggestive of curve progressions seen within the Richter Scale or tectonic deformations. These minimalist sketches are manipulated into complex transformational sequences scribed by the laser onto the desert’s topology.

This fleeting yet precise gesture of the laser choreography becomes a visual spectacle at the intersection of seismology, performative drawing and laser interferometry extending upon the historic trajectory of Land Art in the American deserts. The inherently shifting San Andreas Fault line becomes fragmented and redefined through the laser’s ephemeral distortion of light and, virtually, space as well. As a true collaboration with the geology of the desert environment, “Magnitude” offers perceptual insights through the documentation of these performative actions. Here, from one minute to the next, the San Andreas Fault becomes a geomorphic intersection both reflective and refractive, tracing a portrait of a highly unpredictable landscape.

Sungseok Ahn

South Korean artist Sungseok Ahn’s series entitled “Historic Present” questions the memory of past from the fast changing scenery of today. By overlapping a historical location with an old image of that exact place, he questions the way we treat our history and explores the dynamics between space and time at the same time. via:emptykingdom

Astral Projection 101

Astral travel can be fun but I wouldn’t recommend it for people who haven’t had a lot of out of body practice first. I’ve been having OOB experiences since i was a kid and began astral projecting around eight years old. Here are some basic guidelines~

certain stones and herbs are good for protection during astral travel. Most of my adventures happen while I’m sleeping so I keep pouches in my pillow to protect me on my journey.

•Go places you’ve been before
New places can result in getting lost and not being able to return to your body NOT WHAT YOU WANT

•Be polite to anyone or thing you meet
The astral plane is pretty, and you’ll meet all sorts of creatures. Be polite. Do not be afraid.

Rocks and crystals that aid in astral travel, out of body experiences, protection during astral projecting, etc

•Lapis Lazuli

The best herb to keep close for astral travel is Mugwort.

Hope this helps!


Mécaniques Discursives

Installation by Fred Penelle and Yannick Jacquet combines the old and new, mixing woodblock prints with animated projections:

Minutely constructed like a fine clock, it traces connections, routes, genuinely-false, looping itineraries, inviting escape, inviting dreams. The narrative is deconstructed like a thousand-storied film script. Every effort is made to lead astray, to turn around, to forge ahead. Time is shredded, decomposed, lost…and yet everything references it.
Mécaniques Discursives is like a parenthesis between two epochs: Gutenberg’s and Big Data’s. By contrasting the oldest form of image reproduction (woodcutting) with the most recent digital technologies, the installation straddles centuries and contracts time.

astral projection

I’ve had this information stored in my computer for a while, and decided it was about time I shared it with you all. As some may know, I am very interested in astral projection and have been practicing it for a while (although I have not been able to for the past few months because I’ve been feeling out of balance). Below are some accounts about astral projection I’ve gathered from primary sources–people who have been practicing it for years. I have found their advice and knowledge to be very insightful and helpful and hope it benefits you as well.

“We are multidimensional beings, and are living in an energetic form on many levels of existence. Astral Projection is simply the practice of learning how to transfer consciousness into our other bodies.”

“Something to think about though - It is possible for our energy bodies to be out and about, with consciousness STILL in the physical body. A few weeks ago, I was floating above my physical body, and went to touch my face. My conscious awareness SNAPPED back into my body, and I perceived something touching me. It was me.”
