    Galaxies of the Perseus Cluster
    Galaxies are so fascinating. They contain billions of stars, some with their own planets that could possibly sustain life or even intelligent life if the conditions are right. I can’t imagine that we’re alone.

    Where my father was tentative and gentle,” Chast writes, “she was critical and uncompromising.” And: “Even though I knew he couldn’t really defend me against my mother’s rages, I sensed that at least he felt some sympathy, and that he liked me as a person, not just because I was his daughter.”

    New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast's remarkable, raw, relatable memoir of her parents’ aging, illness, and death is nothing short of a masterpiece.

    Artist Isaac Cordal (tumblr / facebook) - “With the simple act of miniaturization and thoughtful placement, Isaac Cordal magically expands the imagination of pedestrians finding his sculptures on the street. Cement Eclipses is a critical definition of our behavior as a social mass. The art work intends to catch the attention on our devalued relation with the nature through a critical look to the collateral effects of our evolution. With the master touch of a stage director, the figures are placed in locations that quickly open doors to other worlds. The scenes zoom in the routine tasks of the contemporary human being”.

    Hand holding is great


    It’s intimate, but not sexual
    It’s not a commitment
    It’s a reassuring gesture
    It doesn’t necessarily have to be a sign of romantic affection
    You can’t be ‘bad’ at it
    It’s calming
    Sometimes they’ll squeeze you’d hand to reassure you (and that’s hella cute)
    It’s perfectly acceptable in public
    It helps to keep from loosing someone in a crowd
    When you see strangers holding hands you’re usually happy for them

     I was traveling in search for people who have decided to escape from social life and lived all alone in the wild nature, far away from any villages, towns or other people. The major part of my trips were done in Russia.

          I grew up in the heart of the big city, but I’ve always been drawn to wildlife - for me it’s a place where I can hide and feel the real me, my true self, out of social context.

          I am concerned about the issue of internal freedom in the modern society: how feasible it is, when you’re surrounded by a social framework all the time? School, work, family - once in this cycle, you are a prisoner of your own position, and have to do what you’re supposed to. You should be pragmatic and strong, or become an outcast or a lunatic. How to remain yourself in the midst of this? (artist statement)
