Une bibliothèque miniature portative du XVIIème Cette mini bibliothèque portable qui comprend 40 livres a été fabriquée au XVIIème siècle vraisemblablement pour William Hakewill, un membre du Parlement britannique, qui en aurait offert 4 exemplaires à des amis entre 1617 et 1618. [Source] JR à la Belle de mai | Marseille-Provence 2013Marseille Un projet de JR – dans le cadre des Quartiers Créatifs JR possède la plus grande galerie d’art au monde : la rue ! Dans les villes du monde entier, il expose librement ses photographies, profitant de toute surface exploitable pour coller de très grands formats – façade, sol, toit, bretelle d’autoroute, pont & passerelle, et même train ou camion… – jouant de leurs reliefs et de leurs points de vue. Captant l’attention de chacun, y compris de ceux qui ne vont jamais dans les galeries d’art, son travail mêle l’art et l’action et traite d’engagement, de liberté, d’identité et de limites. Unframed (Hors-cadre) est un projet en cours depuis 2010, réalisé à partir d’images de photographes célèbres ou anonymes et d’images d’archives que JR interprète et re-contextualise à l’échelle d’un lieu, d’un quartier ou d’une ville. À la Belle de Mai JR s’est intéressé à l’identité du quartier et a invité ses habitants à se pencher sur la mémoire de celui ci en plongeant dans leurs albums personnels.

Comments comments Hiding the Lockheed Plant during World War II - wow this is amazing! Hidden in Plain View During WW II Lockheed (unbelievable 1940s pictures). This is a version of special effects during the 1940's. Before... After.. The person I received this from said she got back an interesting story about someone's mother who worked at Lockheed, and she as a younger child, remembers all this. Another person who lived in the area talked about as being a boy, watching it all be set up like a movie studio production. Note.... I am 85 and had much of my pilot training in Calif. Hiding the Lockheed Plant during World War II - wow this is amazing! Please visit stories, etc. for more pictures, stories, etc. Please visit Videos 2 View for a great video selection!

Des peintures cachées dans la tranche des livres ( 1650 - 1900 ) Le pratique de cacher des peintures sur la tranches des livres était assez populaire de 1650 à la fin des années 1800. Le principe consistait à cacher un petit morceau de l’illustration au bord de chaque page, quand le livre était fermé on ne voyait rien mais dès qu’on pliait doucement les pages la peinture se dévoilait. Il existait même des livres qui avaient trois peintures sur la tranche, l’une quand on pliait les pages dans un sens, une autre quand on les pliait à l’envers et une dernière directement sur la tranche. Ces 4 peintures sont d’une série de livres de Robert Mudie en 1837 qui portent le nom des saisons – Automne, Printemps, Hivers et Été – qui appartiennent aux archives de l’Université de l’Iowa et qui ont été pris en photos par Colleen Theisen. Voici d’autres exemples de livres avec des peintures cachées dans la tranche en vidéos : Il y a aussi beaucoup de peintures sur tranches dans les archives de la Boston Public Library :

Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel Diplômés de l’École des Beaux-Arts de Rennes, Daniel Dewar & Grégory Gicquel renouent avec la pratique traditionnelle de la sculpture. Ils jouent sur les effets de comparaison et de contraste en associant des matériaux et des motifs hétérogènes, voire contradictoires, afin de créer un univers décalé, composite. Ils reproduisent des artefacts industriels avec leurs propres moyens artisanaux, plutôt que de déléguer ce travail à un tiers, en ajoutant à la perfection lisse qui caractérise habituellement ces objets, une touche d’imperfection. Inscrivant leur pratique dans une approche manufacturée de la sculpture et travaillant des matériaux aussi variés que le bois, le béton, le métal, le marbre ou l’argile, le tandem exploite la confrontation des matières, rugueuses ou brutes, avec des éléments synthétiques, polis ou brillants. Daniel Dewar est né en 1976 à Forest of Dean en Angleterre, il vit et travaille à Nantes. Daniel Dewar & Gregory Gicquel ©

Bizarre Websites On Which You Can Kill Time With Style Modern Web-building technologies allow designers to realize their most daring and creative ideas.

These strengths usually impress and entertain visitors and thus are often used for conceptual artistic presentations and promotional campaigns. In this post, you’ll find a collection of amusing websites that, by combining unconventional (and sometimes bizarre) ideas and clever JavaScript and Flash effects, will entice you to play on them for an embarrassing long time.

Mum sent me this so it has to be true – right? Here are some ‘facts’ about the 1500s: They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken & sold to the tannery…….if you had to do this to survive you were “Piss Poor” But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn’t even afford to buy a pot, they “didn’t have a pot to piss in” and were the lowest of the low. Most people got married in June because they took their yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good byJune. Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no wood underneath. There was nothing to stop things from falling into the house. The floor was dirt. (Getting quite an education, aren’t you?) Sometimes they could obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. Like this:
