luzinterruptus: radioactive control
'radioactive control' is an outdoor installation which addresses, in a somewhat humorous tone, the paranoia which we are suffering from the escape of radioactive material in japan, bringing into question the safety systems at the nuclear power plants.
Before I Die
With help from friends and neighbors, Candy turned the side of an abandoned house in her neighborhood into a giant chalkboard to invite people to share their dreams in public space. Before I Die transformed a neglected space into a constructive one where we can learn the hopes and aspirations of the people around us.
Museum of Broken Relationships
The Museum of Broken Relationships grew from a traveling exhibition revolving around the concept of failed relationships and their ruins. Unlike ‘destructive’ self-help instructions for recovery from failed loves, the Museum offers a chance to overcome an emotional collapse through creation: by contributing to the Museum's collection.
As the winner of the 2010 HUGO BOSS PRIZE, a biennial award recognizing significant achievement in contemporary art, Feldmann received an honorarium of $100,000. For his solo exhibition at the Guggenheim, he has chosen to pin this exact amount to the gallery walls in a grid of overlapping one-dollar bills. (I know I posted about this before but I thought it needed another shout-out)
He was very cute. And charming. An athletic six feet, 200 pounds.
But those white Capezios he was wearing had to go.
Isabel Roach didn't change much about her husband, Stephen L. Roach, when they were married 16 years ago. She likes to say that she "polished him up a bit." And she definitely changed his taste in shoes.
They met in Washington. Both were academic interns at the Washington Center, which arranges internships for college students in the public and private sectors. Mr. Roach, a native Bostonian, went to Washington after he graduated from Anselm College in 1986 hoping to meet the woman of his dreams.
That turned out to be Isabel Blanco, who loved everything about him, except those shoes.
Known as Roachie to family and friends, Mr. Roach had a fine taste in red wines. He and his father-in-law, Luis, made their own wines. Mr. Roach, 36, was vice president and director of sales for Cantor Fitzgerald on the 105th floor of 1 World Trade Center. Mackenzie, 9, his youngest child, is funny like her father. Eileen, 10, has his smarts. Stephen Jr., 11, his passion for sports. None, so far, have inherited his taste in shoes.
Portraits Of Grief NYTimes
The people that Ulf Lundin portrays in his piece "From Darkness" have been sitting by themselves for half an hour in total darkness. Meanwhile Ulf Lundin, who was in a adjoining room, pulled the trigger without seeing them. So the persons didn't know when the flash would lighten up their faces.
Leaders are not what many people think–people with huge crowds following them. Leaders are people who go their own way without caring, or even looking to see whether anyone is following them. “Leadership qualities” are not the qualities that enable people to attract followers, but those that enable them to do without them. The include, at the very least, courage, endurance, patience, humor, flexibility, resourcefulness, determination, a keen sense of reality, and the ability to keep a cool and clear head even when things are going badly. This is the opposite of the “charisma” that we hear so much about. - John Holt
