In Event of Moon Disaster

Almost a week before today in 1969, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon. This was a note sent to Nixon's chief of staff for the president to read in a press conference if the moon landing did not go as planned. Veryyyy Interesting.

She Changes

Janet Echelman builds living, breathing sculpture environments that respond to the forces of nature — wind, water and light.
Exploring the potential of unlikely materials, from fishing net to atomized water particles, Echelman combines ancient craft with cutting-edge technology to create her permanent sculpture the size of buildings. Experiential in nature, the result is sculpture that shifts from being an object you look at, 
to something you can get lost in. 
Janet Echelman was also a speaker at TED 2011's "Threads of Discovery" session and has been commissioned to create public art sculptures in North America and Europe. More can be found here: 


Smears Heres

A little eye candy for you - in the form of Yago Hortal’s lusciously vibrant paintings of explosive color.

The Berlin-based Spanish artist says, in the most convoluted sort of way: “A painting that talks about painting, and in consequence, about its own language autonomy, is a whirlpool that extends to infinity, a pictorial-rational loop.” For me, it's all about the act of working with paint, in it's most natural form. 
What I love most is that you don't have to think at all to enjoy these: Turn off the old bean and revel in the swirls and splashes of Hortal’s abstractions.
