    The petroglyphs in the landscape of Tamgaly, Kazakhstan, dating approx. 1400 BCE to the 20th century.

    The archaeological landscape of Tamgaly contains about 5,000 petroglyphs (rock carvings), which are distributed throughout 48 complexes largely associated with burial grounds and settlements.

    The central canyon has the densest concentration of petroglyphs, contains ‘alters,’ and has been interpreted to have had ritual significance. Devoid of dwellings, it’s thought to have been a place for sacrificial offerings.

    During the Middle Bronze Age we see zoomorphic beings, people, a huge variety of animals, and ‘solar deities (sun-heads).’

    New Scientist 29 January 1981


    It is estimated that a map of all the synaptic connections within just a cubic millimeter of human brain tissue could fill a 
    petabyte of storage. 
    In roughly informational terms,
    1 petabyte =
     13.3 years of HDTV content
    or 58,292 movies
    or roughly 20 million four-drawer filing cabinets full of text

    Paying prices for devices
    that will not suffice us
    do u remember
    before false contenders
    our own fabrics wove these tactics 
    timely magic for the trends…
    when our own chips radiate
    with malfunction
    who cashes in on the destruction…
    world bursting new & open, or is it always broken?
    it’s pieced by fingers
    owned by the unspoken

  11. artisansknight:

    Artist Sukhi Barber was born in England and, from a very young age, she was always interested in pursuing her artistic passions. After attending art school and completing her formal training in sculpture, she traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal, and spent twelve years studying what she describes as the “timeless quality of peace and balance that she found in the art of Asia.”

    Barber’s human figures are a fascinating blend of her training in both sculpture and philosophy. Through her creative practice, she intends to bridge the cultures of East and West in which the peaceful essence of Buddhist tradition sits calmly in unison with the patterns and designs of a traditional bronze casting artform.

    She says that the pieces are meant to explore “themes of hidden potentials, and the transcendence of our limiting view of a solid reality.”

  13. Disney + Dali. Mind officially blown.

    In 1946, two legendary artists began collaboration on a short film. More than half a century later, their creation has finally been completed (x).

    The plot of the film was described by. Dalí as “A magical display of the problem of life in the labyrinth of time.” 
    Walt Disney said it was “A simple story about a young girl in search of true love.”

    The Unsettling Beauty of Lethal Viruses

    To create a body of work he calls “Glass Microbiology,” [Luke] Jerram has enlisted the help of virologist Andrew Davidson from the University of Bristol and the expertise of professional glassblowers Kim George, Brian George and Norman Veitch. Together, the cross-disciplinary team brings hazardous pathogens, such as the H1N1 virus or HIV, to light in translucent glass forms.

    The artist  insists that his sculptures be colorless, in contrast to the images scientists sometimes disseminate that are enhanced with bright hues. “Viruses have no color as they are smaller than the wavelength of light,” says Jerram, in an email. “So the artworks are created as alternative representations of viruses to the artificially colored imagery we receive through the media.” Jerram and Davidson create sketches, which they then take to the glassblowers, to see whether the intricate structures of the diseases can be replicated in glass, at approximately one million times their original size. - Continue reading at Smithsonian.com.

    "The psychedelic drug doesn’t exist that can make a creative genius out of a hack or turn a neurotic weenie into a happy fully-conscious human being. You have to bring something to the table, and be willing to risk your belief systems. Some people want to go to heaven without dying.”
