Tate Modern Buys 8 Million of Ai Weiwei’s Seeds The New York Times reports that London’s Tate Modern has purchased eight million of the 100 million hand-painted, porcelain “sunflower seeds” that were on view as part of Ai Weiwei’s massive installation in the museum’s Turbine Hall last fall. To wit, “the mini-version was purchased directly from the artist, officials at the Tate said, and the remaining 92 million seeds have been returned to Mr. Ai.”

Nature: New set of cute animals Another amazing set of cute animals the nature has to offer. 1. Baby hedgehogs 2. Baby pig 3. Real-Life Secret Playroom Through a Narnia-Like Wardrobe & Dornob Sorry, lion and witch sold separately. ?Still, the stage is set much like many of us imagined when we read the children’s classic as kids: a dark-painted room with wood-trimmed windows and antique wooden furniture, with a large dresser that looks strangely both foreboding and inviting. Maple Seed Renovation specializes in custom projects, seeking “the balance of excellent design, well-executed craftsmanship, and natural materials” ?- hence, it should come as no surprise that the hidden space fits so beautifully in its context, and could be ‘just another vintage furnishing’ in this home. - Gillian Wearing - Mass Observation - Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago "Self Portrait", 2000 Chromogenic development print Photo courtesy of Maureen Paley Interim Art, London Gillian Wearing Mass Observation Gillian Wearing has emerged as one of the foremost British artists of her generation, creating video installations and photographic works that explore the strange humor and wrenching tragedy of everyday life.

Ai Weiwei - magasin 3 stockholm My meeting with Ai Weiwei in Beijing in the fall of 2010 was the starting point for our work on this exhibition. At the time Ai Weiwei had been under house arrest for a few days. He was calm but already then keenly aware of how precarious and unsafe his situation was. A lot has happened since then. In April 2011 Ai Weiwei was arrested on unclear charges and detained for three months in an undisclosed location. Conserving Africa's Wildlife Through Photography How often do we see exquisite imagery of animals that isn't a "When Animals Attack" special? Photographer Nick Brandt says, "The emphasis has generally been on capturing the drama of wild animals IN ACTION, on capturing that dramatic single moment, as opposed to simply animals in the state of being." I agree with Brandt and appreciate his stunning contributions to wildlife photography. The native Londoner first discovered the beauty of Africa's majestic creatures sprawled out on the breathtakingly unaltered landscapes in 1995, when he was still making music videos, practicing his formal training in film.

A Willy Wonka Birthday Party for the WIN! - Modern Kiddo My lovely friend Pilgrim is colorful, creative and the world’s best mama! You’ve seen her fabulous illustrations (she designed our super amazing masthead—including the spooktacular October version!) but wait til you see this spectacular party she threw for her little man D, who was turning a grand old FIVE. I’m so thrilled to share with you, Draw! Pilgrim’s Magical Willy Wonka Party! I think my favorite thing about this party is that with a little planning, and a defined color scheme, you can create something pretty spectacular faster than you can say Oompa Loompa Loopety Doo!
