The mesmerising driftwood sculptures of Japanese artist Nagato Iwasaki.
All of the figures are part of an interconnected work that Iwasaki calls simply ‘Torso’ and each have undergone a painstaking process of construction over the past 25 years.
“Gathering bits of wood from here and there, like an insect building a nest, I create sculptures” says the artist in one of his few interviews. Driftwood of just the right shape and size to mimic a human collarbone or the curve of a pelvis
don’t come floating down the river every day. The slow, meditative process is as much a component of bringing the figures to life as their foraged bones.
Many of the figures are ‘complete’ with alien-proportioned heads and fully fleshed out musculature, giving them an unmistakably - albeit uncanny - human presence.
Others meanwhile are cut off at the waist or missing limbs as if dissembling of their own accord, a frightening image to come across in the woods.
Though he has exhibited internationally the forest settings far better suit the figures than a white cube gallery, free to change colour with the natural elements, creaking and bowing with the effect of rainwater, gathering and uncovering a cloak of moss with the seasonal shift.

Things don’t just happen to you. They just happen.

Conflicts, disappointments and drama happen to a persona that your mind has created.

The root of suffering is the idea that “you”, as a person, exist.

before computers could do financial modeling, economists made contraptions out of water tanks & tubes to simulate how money flows through the economy. my econ courses would've been way cooler if professors had used these in the classroom
i like the way a hydraulic computer can make complex processes so tangible and transparent. would be an interesting way to approach "algorithmic transparency". what would a newsfeed recommendation system look like if it were modeled as an analog system you could interact with

These are some of the remarkable colour images of Hong Kong in the 1950s by the late photographic genius Fan Ho (1931- 2016). He was mostly known for his black & white photography, but his eye for colour was no less stunning.
I think his water shots of '50s Hong Kong are particularly gorgeous.

highways are a good example of what Dewey meant by “art as experience”. imagine archaeologists of a future car-free civilization looking at our huge interchange structures and talking about them as “sculptures” that facilitated “complex movement rituals”, or something like that
they wouldn’t necessarily be *wrong*. but their aloof analysis is a much different way of relating to the infrastructure than tfw commuting or road tripping. it’s like what museums do when they put old masks and vessels and statues behind glass
understanding an artwork as experience means remembering how it was fully entangled with the multisensory activities of everyday life. remembering that the detached/static viewing experience of the display case is a long ways away from the OG context

Would’ve been George Harrison’s birthday today. I’ll never stop sharing this video. 'While My Guitar Gently Weeps' with Tom Petty, Steve Winwood, Jeff Lynne and George Harrison's son, Dhani, you really should. Check out #Prince from 3:28.

Harrison also needs to be remembered as a champion of British cinema, without whom we never would've had The Life of Brian, Withnail & I, The Long Good Friday, Time Bandits....

file this rebrand FIRMLY under ‘don’t judge a book by its cover’ at first glance, the new san francisco symphony identity feels kinda uncomfortable. like, who is this condensed serif font and why does it think it can get away with being so... so... chaotic?? 👀 but WAIT...
WHAT the whole design system is built to REACT to music and sound. responsive typography, but LITERALLY 🤯 it gets better...

ready for the sexiest series of words you’ll hear for a while? ‘sound-activated typographic instrument’ 🥵 the studio behind the rebrand, COLLINS (they recently did that new ‘match’ logo), also developed an interactive web app that does THIS 👇 go play: https://symphosizer.wearecollins.com/

Fun fact: the covid crisis has produced over 1200 new words in German over the past year. Personal favourites are coronamüde (tired of covid) & Impfneid (envy of those who have been vaccinated).
You can follow the Leibniz Institute that compiles the words here: (...hopefully they’ll publish an English translation for non-German speakers soon!)
