anonymous asked:

if you could live in a world templated from the work of 1 visual artist, whose would it be?

i nearly said david lynch until i realized that i do love his work but only from a spectator’s perspective. so maybe caspar david friedrich. his work’s have something deeply serene and mysterious about them. and on the first look they portrait the world around you but they actually show you a glimpse of your own insides. they are endless and dreamlike and i think i might really like that.

“PHILADELPHIA MUSES”

by Meg Saligman

Deep meaning exists for me when people come together and create something purposeful and beautiful with their hands… . for in this space I can give those who need it a voice, and in this space my voice matters most.  —Meg Saligman

In Greek mythology the Muses were the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne, each protecting a different art and associated with a different symbol. When Meg Saligman reenvisioned the myth in 1999 to reflect the art and creativity of today’s Philadelphia she used spheres, as symbols of perfect art forms and replaced the muses with diverse portraits from the abundance of local performing and visual artists. In the center of this South 13th Street mural, sitting atop a machine spinning out spheres, the figure holding the sun represents the human spirit. Not surprisingly, in 2006 Public Art Review named Saligman as one of the 10 most influential muralists of the previous decade.  @megamural  @muralarts  @forecastpublicart  @scenesfromthesidewalk

Do you think that the FAMAS had to be replaced? And what do you think about its replacement the HK416?

well I don’t care much about modern firearms but from my visual artist’s standpoint I think it’s a crying shame.
the FAMAS had a design that was as easily recognized as its American and Russian counterparts, but now it’s been replaced by a shitty German carbine with no class >:v
of course uniformity makes law so it’s probably better from a military standpoint..

the FAMAS will still hang around for years anyway

Viewfinder | Manipulated Self-Portraits From a Master of the Form

The artist Lucas Samaras wears many hats - painter, sculptor, designer, performance artist and experimenter in different photographic mediums. Perhaps his best-known work has been his self-portraits which he calls “Photo-Transformations” and began to make with Polaroids in the ‘70s. (Call them the original selfies.) By physically altering the emulsion, he often manipulated the images long before Photoshop was a resource.
