Someone recommended this blog to me and I really enjoy it. Eric posts a new picture of his beautiful city every day with a brief description or reflection.
Not only do you get to see nice pictures of this great city, you also get a sort of “insider’s” tour and discover new things you might not have otherwise known about.
It’s great to check out especially before traveling there. You never know what great things you might find!
Caught a bit of "Before Sunrise" on TV. This is the poem that the guy by the river wrote and recited to them. Beautiful.
Daydream delusion, limousine eyelash / Oh baby with your pretty face / Drop a tear in my wineglass / Look at those big eyes / See what you mean to me / Sweet-cakes and milkshakes / I\'m a delusion angel / I\'m a fantasy parade / I want you to know what I think / Don\'t want you to guess anymore / You have no idea where I came from / We have no idea where we\'re going / Lodged in life / Like branches in a river/ Flowing downstream / Caught in the current / I carry you / You\'ll carry me / That\'s how it could be / Don\'t you know me? / Don\'t you know me by now?
A fantastic group of artists from Sydney called The Glue Society has created a group of images they call The Bible According To Google Earth, meaning that they took images from Google Earth and reworked them to look like events from the Bible were actually taking place. Aside from being beautiful and dramatic images, this project, as this post on Creative Review suggests, aims to help people ask questions about technologies that they are accustomed to trusting, like satellite photography, in a creative and unique way.
It seems that future works will include images of famous mythological and historical events and I can’t wait to see them! Being a lover of history and mythology I always find it exciting to be able to see how these events might have looked like in a realistic way, rather than just imagining them.
I don’t really know what implications a project like this might have, but art has always been one of the most interesting, beautiful and powerful way to help people question their reality. By mixing modern technologies and traditional subject matter, The Glue Society is highlighting a timely and important question in an age where we have millions of sources of information, most with questionable reliability, and where accountability and transparency are becoming more and more important and being demanded with increasing fervor.
