Daft Punk - Something About Us

It might not be the right time
I might not be the right one
But there’s something about us I want to say
'cause there's something between us anyway

ENGOLDENED

I learnt a new word and I love the sound of it: kintsukuroi. It is the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with seams of gold. Kintsugi repairs the brokenness in a way that makes the container even more beautiful than it was prior to being broken.  Not a very common idea in western culture!

Instead of diminishing the bowl’s appeal and appreciation, the “break” offers the container  a new sense of its vitality and resilience. The bowl has become more beautiful for having been broken. One can say that the true life of the bowl began the moment it was dropped!

Imagine you are that clay pot: celebrate your flaws and imperfections. Remember that you being you is what makes you uniquely beautiful.  

And remember: “The world breaks everyone, then some become strong at the broken places.” Ernest Hemingway

An interesting essay on the art of kintsukuroi can be found in Flickwerk, The Aesthetics of Mended Japanese Ceramics.

I’m pretty sure that I’ve reblogged this before, but its actually one of my favorite posts on tumblr. The idea that something can be more beautiful after being broken is so moving to me. I kind of want one of these someday, or to make my own. It’s an amazing concept, and I love the fact that it’s an artform.

Having troubles with facial angles in your drawing style?

Try a 3D sculpture of your art in your own style in a free program that is simple and very easy to use.

The program is called Sculptris and is a free off-shoot program from Zbrush, that program that you keep hearing about but either takes selling your kidneys or piracy to actually use. 

If you download it and sculpt out a facial model, you can have references for your own work for all of time. No more endlessly searching Google for reference materials or twisting/rotating/flipping a drawing to see if there are flaws. And you can easily edit it to create more facial types. This way, you can make character references for any and every face and facial angle that you can think of.

The program offers mirroring right from the start, so your faces will be perfectly symmetrical. You can turn off the symmetry for things like scars or otherwise. 

It takes a little time. For instance, I downloaded the program on Christmas and, in my spare time, this took a few days of getting familiar with the program (first day) and then sculpting for a few minutes each day, mostly due to my perfectionist nature. And this one isn’t even done. I still have to mold the mouth, ears, and other smaller aspects before I consider it done. However, I was so giddy over the possibilities that I wanted to share this with my fellow artists.

From now on, I have reference for a face in my own style and will be able to create things so much easier in the future. 

I hope that this helps you guys and that you have fun with it.

This took me a good few hours and a lot of effort to make and even though it was mainly for myself anyone can feel free to use it, for the note it is still under construction and I am undergoing fixes. So If anyone actually does use this other than myself and notices a broken link or something not quite right, could you please inform me about it? Thank you.

LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THIS NEAT THING OKAY?

Just to preface this, I don’t know if anyone else has posted this, so if you have, I’m sorry! I’m posting for anybody with any anxiety, stress, want to cool down from a rough day, or just need background noise to function!

This is a really neat site because you have more than one noise to choose from to listen to. If rain isn’t really your thing, they have crackling fire and breaking waves, and it’s just really relaxing. And you know what’s the coolest part about each noise? You can change the levels. You can slide and switch levels around to have the perfect amount of thunder, or light rain, or crackles in your fire, or foamy sea goodness! Each noise (to my knowledge) has 10 sliders for different sounds within said noise, so you can mix and listen for as long as you need! And if you don’t feel like mixing it yourself, there’s a neat button called “Animate” which allows the noise to evolve and change itself, so it gives it a little flavor.

It even has some that are specifically catering to mental health and sound therapy.

But really, I encourage everyone to at least try it out, it’s just super neat and it calms me down and serves as a nice low noise in the background if I need it for sleep or working on homework.

Seriously, this thing is awesome.

Oooh relaxing things

YEAHHH IT’S ANOTHER ONE

NO NO NO YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND THIS IS A REALLY FAMOUS ANIMATION FILM TECHNIQUE DONE BY ONE INSANE STUDIO YEARS AND YEARS AGO IN GERMANY, ONLY A FEW FILMS, BECAUSE OF HOW HARD THEY WERE TO MAKE.

EACH AND EVERY FRAME OF THESE MOVIES ARE OIL PAINTINGS ON GLASS.

holy

i’ve actually had this idea before but i never knew there was a studio that actually did it

This is from the film ‘The Old Man and the Sea’, directed by Russian animator Aleksandr Petrov. It was animated at a studio in Canada, not Germany, the animation itself handled mainly by Aleksandr and his son Dmitri Petrov. Production began in 1997 and the film was released in 1999. Though paint-on-glass is a laborious technique with few talented animators working in the medium Aleksandr Petrov has created several films using the process. In fact his most recent film ‘My Love’ was released in 2006-7. So check his work out if you haven’t. The ‘living painting’ effect achieved is very unique and beautiful.

BeeLine Reader

This extension really does seem to help with reading long pieces of text on a laptop or mobile device screen; apparently I read 27% faster with it! It’s a pretty interesting, yet simple, concept. Give it a try, might help ya.

Get it here

this could have made research projects so much easier. I could never get through online articles.

do you realize how much more i would be inclined to read and study a textbook if they were printed like this?

holy shit I would actually be able to read again

Sobbing with joy rn. I have never needed an extension more than I need this.

Clever, kind Turrell guidance at the Mattress Factory in Pittsburgh.

James Turrell is the rare contemporary artist whose work you actually HAVE to see in person. It does not really exist outside the physical experience of it.

Seeing Turrell installations (or whatever you call them) is for me at least actually transformative. You become aware that light is literally a thing, that your body changes the world merely by looking at it, and that paying attention to the barely visible can be utterly engrossing.

You can’t really describe this stuff without sounding like a total cheeseball, but it is still real.

Anyway, go see Turrell’s stuff whenever you get the chance.
