Fuck Yeah, Book Arts! Photos 780 Notes Down The Rabbit Hole by Dina Makarita is a tunnel book that evokes the feeling of time passing as you fall into a deep REM sleep, when your most vivid and bizarre dreams occur. The overall form is an expandable sequence of bright turning shapes representing depth of sleep, while the rotating shapes mimic the movement of the dreamer’s eye during REM sleep. Packaging includes instructions for assembly, a dream journal with interpretations, a photo book of the project, and all the necessary paper materials for creating your very own dream tunnel book.
Flavorwire As you already know, The Avengers is pretty much already the people’s choice movie of the year, and has inspired all manner of pop culture tributes in recent months, from the relatively high brow to the delightfully low brow. Well, here’s just one more for you to add to the list, and it comes with a bonus — in addition to being a charming idea, these cute Avengers-themed cocktails, created by the genius mind (and great illustrator) behind The More I Arty, actually look pretty delicious. And hey, a sampling of your favorite before you go see the film in 3-d might just improve the experience.
Solo in Paris Some go to La Coupole, the 87-year-old Art Deco brasserie in Montparnasse, to commune with friends; others, to dine with ghosts — Picasso, Piaf, Sartre, all former patrons. I went alone, to live in the present. I sliced through an oyster with my cocktail fork, loosening it from its shell. Cultural communication Cultural relativism is the view that cultures are merely different, not deficient, and each culture’s norms and practices should be assessed only from the perspective of the culture itself, not by standards embraced by another culture. It is the idea that one cannot make judgments about a culture just because they are not a part of one's own. Outsiders should be able to see the cultural from a neutral perspective and not judge the culture before understanding it.
