By the late Tang dynasty , landscape painting had evolved into an independent genre that embodied the universal longing of cultivated men to escape their quotidian world to commune with nature . Such images might also convey specific social, philosophical, or political convictions. As the Tang dynasty disintegrated, the concept of withdrawal into the natural world became a major thematic focus of poets and painters. Faced with the failure of the human order, learned men sought permanence within the natural world, retreating into the mountains to find a sanctuary from the chaos of dynastic collapse. During the early Song dynasty , visions of the natural hierarchy became metaphors for the well-regulated state.
The recent “neuro-revolution” in poetics has tended to replicate the privilege granted to cognition over affect in other areas of neuroscience. What is most important, from this perspective, is the prefrontal cortex and its attendant brain systems: those most linked to tertiary processes, the “higher” forms of reasoning that are unique to the human brain, the kind of meta-critical capacity that distinguishes us from our dogs and dolphins, elephants and apes. Research in neuroscience has been guilty of the same biases until recently.

Like Valerie Chiang or Kalie Garrett , Alex Stoddard is one of those talented teenage photographers who knows how to express themselves. His self-portraits are all incredibly unique and after viewing them you're left wondering where he's going to take you next. What I enjoy most is that you can almost feel his passion come through.
The tremendous popularity of this article with more than half a million (!) clicks in one month inspired me to contact the artist Michael Wesely himself. I felt there were questions by readers which I couldn't answer correctly without talking to Michael.

Using multiple layers of clear glass, Canada based David Spriggs and Chinese born Xia Xiaowan , transform flat artwork into 3D sculptures. Viewers are treated to different shifting perspectives of the works based on where they stand in the art space. Spriggs work revolves around powerful explosive imagery, often resembling storms, cosmic blasts or firework like explosions. Xiawan’s “spatial paintings,” which often feature distorted figures, are drawn individually using colored pencil on tinted glass. Only when these pieces are combined on their floor racks do the images create the whole hologram like effect. See Also INCREDIBLE 3D ILLUSTRATIONS JUMP OUT OF THE SKETCHBOOK
first image installation view of carnovsky's 'RGB' exhibition all photos by alvise vivenza carnovsky: RGB exhibition johanssen gallery , berlin on now until february 10th, 2011 milan-based collective carnovsky (francesco rugi and silvia quintanilla) presents 'RGB', an exhibition which showcases a series of wallpapers that mutate and interact with different chromatic stimulus. the wall coverings consist of three different patterns (in red, yellow and blue respectively) that when overlapped, result in a disorientation of images. when colors and patterns mix up, the lines and shapes entwine becoming oneiric and not completely clear. through a filter (a colored light or transparent material) it is possible to see clearly the layers in which the image is composed. each one of the red, green and blue (RGB) filters serve to reveal just one of the three patterns, hiding the other two. without the RGB filters, the three overlapping patterns create a chaotic mix of images
