Britta Jaschinski - Zoo

We need animals. Animals don't need us, but we need them.
We constantly look for any kind of connection we can possibly get to them.

Britta Jaschinski


Gábor Kerekes

The scientists of the old times had tried to cath the unknown in its base, they had been sure it could be defined using their own subjective systems of symbols.

Gábor Kerekes, 1995

Agnes Martin - Beauty is the Mystery of Life

Composition is an absolute mystery. It is dictated by the mind. The artist searches for certain sounds or lines that are acceptable to mind and finally an arrangement of them that is acceptable.

Agnes Martin, Beauty is the Mystery of Life, 1969

This Rain, 1960


The very deep and the very small

I cannot think of the deep sea without shuddering at the nameless things ...

... that may at this very moment be crawling and floundering on its slimy bed, worshipping their ancient stone idols and carving their own detestable likenesses on submarine obelisks of water-soaked granite. I dream of a day when they may rise above the billows to drag down in their reeking talons the remnants of puny, war-exhausted mankind —of a day when the land shall sink, and the dark ocean floor shall ascend amidst universal pandemonium.

H.P. Lovecraft


458mn is a stunning computer generated version of the romanticized sequence of mating snails from the documentary "Microcosmos", that bids goddbye to any possible cuteness of that image.
You'll never look at love making snails the same way again!

“To paint involves a certain crisis, or at least a
critical moment of sensation or release.”

Cy Twombly, whose spare, childlike scribbles and poetic engagement with antiquity left him stubbornly out of step with the movements of postwar American art even as he became one of the era’s most important painters, died on Tuesday in Rome. He was 83.


Haeckel's Visions

Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted
with the memories and the dreams of Time.

H. P. Lovecraft
