I Like Your Flaws I like how you mispronounce words sometimes, how you fumble and stammer and stutter looking for the right ones to say and the right ways to say them. I appreciate that you find language challenging, because it is, because everything manmade is challenging. Including man, including you. When you sleep on your side, I like to map the constellations between your beauty marks freckles pimples, the minuscule mountains that sprinkle your back. I like the tufts of hair you forgot to shave and the way you smell when you haven’t showered in a while; I like the sleep left in your eyes. I like the way your skin dies in the middle of the night, how you die from embarrassment the next morning; how you writhe in the snake casing you’ve left behind. I enjoy seeing you insecure, vulnerable. The burns, the scars, the black and blues on your face body heart, I want to know their stories. Your flaws single you out, set you apart, make you different from the rest, and thank god.

Sending Messages with Glowing Neon Letters Artist Lee Jung sends all kinds of tangible messages with these neon text-based installations. The South Korea-based photographer creates the messages and then photographs them. In doing so, the artist makes a comment on modern day culture, and our tendencies to communicate via less intimate means like the Internet, text messaging, and Facebook. The glowing letters are very publicly juxtaposed against a natural environment. Jung creates the messages of love or the simple questions, like “Why?,” to spark wonder about the words. The bright lights against the dark, natural background creates a sense of meditation for viewers. Lee Jung on Artnet via [Slow Show]
