Possibly the most interesting thing I've read all day...
Art that became an insight into humanity... Performance artist Marina Abramović's work explores the relationship between performer and audience, the limits of the body, and the possibilities of the mind. Active for over three decades, she has recently begun to describe herself as the "grandmother of performance art.
Holy freaking crap. That's so sad and terrifying.

"Everything that have and possess are merely things that we rely on for a little while. If we understand it like this, we know the nature of all conditioned things. Then although we have something, it is as if we did not have anything. Getting is the same as losing. Losing is the same as getting." - Ajahn Chah

Love the detail! "Artist Brian Dettmer alters pre-existing books one page at a time using knives, tweezers and surgical tools. He begins by sealing the books edges, creating an enclosed vessel full of unearthed potential. Nothing inside the old encyclopedias, medical journals, illustration books, or dictionaries is relocated or implanted, only removed."

I LOVE this. Seems weird at first I know, but to me this picture shows how kids (more so than adults) will love the things that are good to them, the things that are kind, friendly, loving, loyal - they love the QUALITIES of things and people and pets more than the outside appearance. The innocence and lack of judgement exemplified in that is beautiful. Plus, that 'monster' that allows that little girl to put a bow on its horn, and cuddle it - that just shows its love for her, too <3
art, illustration, // Omar Ravyan - The Favorite
Agree! --- "Omar Rayyan. I cracked up when I first saw this image. I love the classical influence and then he just chucked in some monstrosity... just because! The detail is stunning, right down to the matching flower on the demon's horn. I can just imagine this strange little girl begging to be allowed to have her dearest pet painted into her portrait with her
