What happened in the US?

Thursday, September 17th, 2009

I’ve been gone for nearly two years now. And things just seem to be getting worse and worse over there. California is bankrupt, banks are failing, People are getting I.O.U.s from the government. GM is no longer around. Then I heard about this story.

The Philadelphia library is closing down. They don’t have enough money to run it. Seriously? Libraries? What’s next public schools for our children? Investing in education and infrastructure is investing in yourself and the future. After living in Singapore for the last two years I now see how an efficient city/country can be. Please fix it, compromises need to be made. It won’t be easy. But, do it for the kids.

These two guys from Germany take really long exposure photography and add performance light to it. None of these photos are photoshopped. Truly inspiring.

Make sure you click on the pull down at the top to look at their different photosets. Lots of different styles of this artform.

How cool is this artwork? The guy takes cassette tapes, VHS tapes, film reels and reassembles them into portraits and artwork.
