The fact that Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir Ian Mckellen are best friends in real life makes me so happy
Inka & Niclas - Watching Humans Watching, 2008-10
Human experience lives in the supranatural space between solid realities and phantasmic imaginings. Mind and eye vie, play, and ultimately blur as matter turns to memory, and memory affects encounters. These are the transformative moments when fantasy magics the tangible into the metaphysical.
A surprise of great beauty; an exhilarating, fearful moment; rapt awe; and a happy conversation between a human and nature is revealed in sweeping tableaus, lush color fields, and small, but undeniably engaged individuals, couples, and groups. Whether deeply involved in the conversation, or expectant that it will happen, the subjects bare a desire for this connection.
Things I think people should stop doing
Stop taking pictures of people and posting them on the internet without their consent. If you’re trying to make some half assed joke about someone’s appearance or trying to upload a picture of an attractive stranger, maybe you should stop and think ‘hey how would I feel if some douche bag took a picture of me and posted on tumblr to talk shit/objectify me?”.
Nothing on TV: static + test pattern.
