Actors in Character - Now That is Acting! Feb 21, 2011 / Category : Movies / 18 Comments There's no denying the fact that most of us have pretended to be actors. Photographer Howard Schatz, from Vanity Fair, took this idea one step further, place actors in a series of roles and dramatic situations to reveal the essence of their characters. Left: You're a priest in a hardscrabble factory-town parish, listening to your brother's son confess that he has killed a man. Center: You're a gangsta rapper being informed by a haughty bouncer that you are not on the list. Right: You're a six-year-old who has skinned his knee in the playground, waiting to cry until your mom gets off her cell phone.

Before I Die & Candy Chang What matters most to you Interactive public art project that invites people to share their personal aspirations in public.

The (Literal) ‘Street Art’ of Pedestrian Crosswalks Literal Street Art Transforms Pedestrian Crosswalks Article by Urbanist, filed under Street Art & Graffiti in the Art category. There is a lot of commercial emphasis on the safety of vehicle designs, but did you know that 25% of auto accidents involve pedestrians? While the purpose of these crossings is to assist people (or in some cases animals) wishing to cross a road, their utilitarianism hasn’t not stopped people from creative experimentation in the form of quite literal pedestrian street art. The most famous of these works come, unsurprisingly, from Peter Gibson, often referred to as Canada’s answer to Britain’s Banksy. Synesthesia Music EmailEmail Synesthesia actually lets you paint with the colors of the wind, if it’s loud enough. This rare neurological phenomenon also enables Melissa McCracken to paint music. Synesthesia means that some of your stimuli are joined in unusual combinations.

The nonagon (Method „A“) « Sacred geometry THE NONAGON (Method „A“)with example of trisection of angles larger than 90° Foreword to Chapter Eight Before we say anything about the nonagon, we will „single out“ one of the fundamental laws of sacred geometry that we might have noticed in our presentations up to now and which will be deepened in our forthcoming chapters. In addition to the fact that in sacred geometry all curves and straight lines are given in their full circumference, meaning in arched full circles and straight lines across all areas of the circles, and as we have said, all intersection points incurred by such inscribing are new data and as “controllers” of the accuracy of the geometric plotting and data, the fundamental law would read: The initial – central circle is the mirror of all the other radii originating outside it and within it. An example is the hexagon (scheme – pattern – validity).

Shooting Strangers in Orchard Road When I’m out on the streets, I often encounter faces that make me look twice; faces that stand out in the crowd without trying; faces that are out of the ordinary. They range from the exquisitely beautiful to the strangely wonderful. I started to approach these strangers for permission to take a photo of them. Some said no, but most said yes. After taking their portrait, I’d say ‘thank you’ and walk on along. I didn’t ask for their names, or where they came from, or what they do, because I wanted the viewers to see them how I saw them: as beautiful strangers.
