ERIK JOHANSSON. Cookies are Not Accepted - New York Times. Artist 'domesticates' plant roots into intricate geometric forms. Our perception of plants probably paints them as passive, slow-growing green things that aren't particularly intelligent -- at least, not like us humans.

Artist 'domesticates' plant roots into intricate geometric forms

But recent research is showing how arrogantly anthrocentric that view may be, revealing that plants do indeed sense, learn, remember and react much like how a human might. Scientists aren't the only ones having fun with this new research into what is now informally being called plant neurobiology (though this is a bit of a misnomer, as plants do not have neurons per se). In a series of grown artworks called Interwoven, Amsterdam-based German artist Diana Scherer explores how the sensitive roots of plants -- sometimes likened to the 'brains' of a plant -- can be molded and shaped into intricate, man-made forms.

Rainworks - Rain-Activated Art. I Turn Paper Into Wedding Dresses Based On Different Nationalities. I am an artist and my material is an ordinary paper. Once I was approached by a brand of underwear in order to make image-shooting for wedding clothes. Wedding suit should hide the bride from the groom in almost all the cultures. In some countries it closes not only the body but also the face completely. On the stage of sketches for shooting, it was hard to imagine stylized national costume, which would expose intimate parts.

But the final result was so conventional that it did not seem vulgar and unaesthetic in combination with underwear. The main thing for me was not to offend the sensibilities of culture bearers, whose costume I took as a basis. How to Achieve Flawless Beauty.

Declaration of the Independence of the Mind: An Extraordinary 1919 Manifesto Signed by Albert Einstein, Bertrand Russell, Jane Addams, and Other Luminaries. Decades before Martin Luther King, Jr. made his timeless case for the ancient Greek notion of agape as a centerpiece of nonviolence, another luminous mind and soaring spirit challenged humanity to pause amid one of the most violent periods in history and consider an alternative path.

The declaration was published in the socialist newspaper L’Humanité on June 26, 1919, and was later included in the out-of-print treasure Hermann Hesse & Romain Rolland: Correspondence, Diary Entries and Reflections (public library) — Rolland enclosed the text in an April 1919 letter to Hesse, asking the beloved German writer to be among the signatories.

10 Artists Who Shatter Our Perceptions Of Reality. 11-Year-Old Child Prodigy Creates Stunningly Detailed Drawings Bursting With Life. Credit: Bored Pand Serbian artist Dušan Krtolica just might be the next big child prodigy. This 11-year-old is a master artist, drawing a wide array of anatomically correct flora and fauna with a level of mastery that is far beyond his years. Krtolica has been drawing since he was two years old and obviously hasn’t looked back since. By the time he was eight years old Krtolica had already had two national solo exhibitions – something that many perfectly capable adult artists cannot claim.

The young prodigy clearly has a strong fascination, as the majority of his beautiful drawings are saturated with countless different species of every plant and animal under the sun. Given his fascination with the natural world, it makes sense that Krtolica wants to be a zoologist when he grows up. Mecre - Mechanical Creatures. Adam Martinakis. Artist Wants To Map Every Single Human Skin Tone On Earth. Perhaps, in the near future, besides wearing mobile devices on our faces and sporting unisex high-waisted pants, we’ll cease to refer to people as black or white, or some variant in between. Instead, we’ll use their corresponding Pantone color to describe the tone of their skin. If this happens, we’ll have to thank artist Angelica Dass for building the first database of skin hues.

Dass started her project, Humanae, in April 2012, by photographing some of her Brazilian family members. Dass sampled a small pixel from the subject’s skin--usually from the well-lit cheek area--and then matched it to a Pantone hue, which is used as the backdrop. She does this with all her photographs for Humanae, which now number around 2,000.

“Humanae is a pursuit for highlighting our true color, rather than the untrue red, yellow, black, and white,” says Dass, who is the “granddaughter of a ‘black’ and ‘native’ Brazilian and the daughter of a ‘black’ father adopted by a ‘white’ family.” An Incredible Fantasy World Mapped With Google Street View.
