“If I had accepted my life, I would be a cocktail waitress in Vegas like my mother and I never would’ve gone to college and I never would’ve believed some crazy guy in a hood who told me I could be more than just some IT girl.”
“If I could give you guys any advice it would be, don’t confine yourself to one particular type of human because, I reckon things come out of the blue, when you least expect them. And don’t hold yourself to expectations because, maybe some day someone is going to blindside you and not at all be what you expected. But they’ll be like the exact person that you were looking for, without even knowing that you were looking for them.” - Troye Sivan.
“You can’t get the truth. You can’t. There’s a larger truth, though: that you can’t harness the forces of the cosmos, but you may find somebody else. You may find another human being. That may be kind of corny and all of that, but that’s really it: Love is the only truth we can hope to know, as human beings. That’s what Mulder and Scully found after nine years. And that’s a lot.”

London-based designer Troy Hyde’s ingenious photography project titled, Lightscapes are composed of satellite images of the world’s most brightest and busiest cities. Hyde transforms each image into a GIF by adding a flickering element. Each twinkle signifies the livelihood of the “hustle and bustle” found in large cities such as Las Vegas, Cairo, London, Tokyo and Madrid among many others. The aerial also view gives one the impression of hovering above the illuminated cities by plane. By reversing the perspective of the night sky, the artist urges us to look down on Earth at the sparkling cities, instead of up at the starry night sky.
