Mrs. Deane : nothing is too amazing to be true non-digitally manip­u­lated hand print © Yaseen Al-Obeidy The Kuwait Weeks were born out of a con­ver­sa­tion I had with Kuwaiti pho­tog­ra­pher Mohammed Alk­ouh, who is cur­rently hav­ing a solo show at CAP Kuwait, which includes a num­ber of his recent stu­dio por­traits. We talked about his encoun­ters in the tra­di­tional por­trait stu­dios, which gave him the love for the hand-colored image, and how for him those pho­tographs, like real life instances of Oscar Wilde’s pic­tures of Dorian Gray, con­tained the pres­ence and the youth of a fam­ily mem­ber now in advanced age or even deceased. And how the vin­tage image has this mys­te­ri­ous time-warp qual­ity that we can­not shake off or stop being fas­ci­nated by — an addic­tion mer­ci­less tapped into and catered to by sev­eral online plat­forms, numer­ous photo books, col­lec­tions, some gal­leries, eBay sell­ers and auctioneers.

Mars Hill - Theology The word theology comes from two Greek words: “theos”, meaning “God”, and “logos”, meaning “word”. So theology is words about God. When we put to words what we believe about God, we discover that God has been writing a story of hope and redemption for all the world. This story is a movement from creation to new creation, and God has given us a role to play in that story, in the restoration of our relationships with God, each other, ourselves, and creation. Since story is central to our belief about God, our words about God—our theology—exists in the form of a narrative. The Mars Hill Narrative Theology An Excerpt from McSweeney’s Next Issue, Josephine Rowe Illustration: Carson Murdach Do not adjust your set. What you see before you is an excerpt from the latest issue of McSweeney’s, our alluring, laid-back, westerly sister. Curiouser still, the McSweeney’s site has an excerpt from our new interview with Geoff Dyer. Have we gone mad? Yes, because we’re also offering an insane deal: a dual, twenty-percent-off subscription to both our magazines.

PhotoWings Here are some excerpts from this fascinating interview: Malcolm Daniel on our shared photographic heritage. From a historical standpoint, there are things to be learned from the past. From a more spiritual aspect, great works of art have the power to move us, whether they're made now or whether they were made 50 years ago, 100 years ago or 1,000 years ago or more. And so each time we lose something that has that power, we've lost an opportunity to be changed by it. Malcolm Daniel tells the story of his predecessor Maria Morris Hambourg's forthright job interview with Philippe de Montebello, then museum curator and director at The Met.

An Amazing Tattoo Artist – Peter Aurisch Peter Aurisch, a tattoo artist based out of Berlin, Germany, creates amazing one of a kind works of art that are unlike anything you’ve ever seen before. Each piece mirrors Peter’s signature style, merging a whimsical aesthetic with an overall edgy and visually enticing demeanor. His tattoos are exploding with creativity, as he intermingles a vast array of subjects and figures into his works, somehow they all come together to create an overall brilliant cohesive design.

The Front Row April 18, 2014 The Secrets of Godzilla My artistic career was ended by Godzilla—as a child monster-movie maniac, I stopped attending painting classes when the long-awaited film (the American version, of course, starring Raymond Burr) showed up on Saturday-morning television. So I take the weeklong run of the Burr-free 1954 Japanese-language original, which begins today at Film Forum, personally.

Liz Kuball › Blog I know, I know, you’re up to your ears in Kickstarter emails from photographers, and I feel you, I really do. But this one is different. My little sister, Cara, is part of a group called the New Craft Artists in Action (NCAA), based in Boston. That’s them above (Cara is the cute one in the orange scarf). NCAA designs and makes basketball nets and installs them on public courts across the country where nets are missing.

Drone 100: A World Record Featuring 100 Points A spectacle produced by the Ars Electronica Futurelab for Intel has made it into the record books! In a performance showcased by a promotional film for the world-famous chip maker, 100 spaxels took to the sky simultaneously. Team spirit is what it took to get this ambitious demonstration of technical brilliance off the ground. The arrival of the Spaxels crew at Ahrenlohe Airfield in Tornesch near Hamburg, Germany brought these Ars Electronica Futurelab staffers to the culmination of a full year’s R&D work commissioned by Intel. Their mission: To surpass the previous record of 50 LED-studded quadrocopters aloft at once. The scenario of this performance spotlighting the world-famous chip manufacturer called for a squadron of no fewer than 100 illuminated drones ascending skyward to the sound composed especially for the occasion.
