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.”

These Ithaca natives came all the way from the Big Apple to chat with me about their new, self-titled album, Beat The Grid, and I’m so glad to have had the opportunity to meet with them. They are a wonderful group of artists, and they released their debut album with a truly beautiful…


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.

(Most certainly most beautiful -
You take my breath away. Thank you Brainfeeder.)


Do not quiver; love thy jealous neighbor
We have nothing and everything to lose
All we can do is fly away home
to the calm place we muse, bruise, and bemoan

But the water is still always
And the birds sing without worries
And the clouds’ sheen is silvery,
Land flowing of milk and honey -

Where are your wildest shiniest dreams?
Today, you will be fire, illuminating the seams.
The kingdom may be fit with a crown of thorns-
never cease the singing of your own freedom songs.

Roulettes & rollercoasters
charged by the sun
We get the free ride,
head of loaded fun

Prayers can’t be preened for quality;
Faith in things neither caressed nor seen
City of Angels feel you, knowing me, 
Love spirits dancing circles, round more than we could be -
why do you whine?
Here’s your white magic key
