Moss Graffiti: A How To Guide
are you fucking for real
Of course you did! :)
Now in the #PopArt part of “What Are you Looking at?” I immediately thought of @joeredhead when I saw “Just What Is It Today That Makes Today’s Homes So Different, So Appealing?” (1956, #RichardHamilton)
In honor of the upcoming holiday, our vibe this week is starburst.
This was one of the best exhibits i saw while living in NYC.

This is the piece I took home from NYC’s #McKellanMeSoftly event by @geeksOUT
Ever since early scientists concluded that talking to plants did have a slight benefit toward the plant’s growth, studies measuring the effect of song on plants have sprouted internationally.
In 2003 a 6-week study by biologist Irvin Megnar experimented with different genres of song. It was found that Jazz singers strengthened the roots, and that lofty soprano notes inspired plants to reach ever higher toward the sky. The plants far preferred live performance, and were not fooled by even the most sophisticated speaker systems.
This technique, now referred to as “horticulturing” the plant, has been adopted by many nature-loving activists. This coming September Audra McDonald will hold a series of free concerts in deforested areas of the Pacific Northwest to help restore majestic Redwoods that have been lost to fire.
Micah Ganske (b.1980, USA)
Micah Ganske is an Award-Winning Artist born in Honolulu, Hawaii. His current body of work is titled Tomorrow Land. The images start with the simple juxtaposition of large shadows over aerial views of depressed and abandoned locations. The shadows cast are of things that symbolize, what he refers to as Aspirational Technology. These are things that represent, or at one point represented, the progress of our technological civilization and the glory which a high-technology future would bring. The locations depicted are towns, neighborhoods and population centers which have been recently abandoned due to industrial negligence. These areas represent the hubris of our species and lack of foresight that has been so catastrophic over the history of human civilization. These works embody Micah’s optimism along with a realism about what we as a species are capable of.
Li Hongbo 李洪波 (b.1974, China)
Even for a book editor and designer, Li Hongbo has an unusual attachment to paper. “I love it and collect it,” he says. He also does increasingly audacious experiments with it. The installation Paper (2010) began when Li Hongbo bought one of the “honeycomb” paper balls used for festive decorations in China and took it apart to see how it was made. “I realised it’s really quite simple,” he says. “Yet the flexibility in terms of shape and properties is amazing.” His take on this craft tradition is indeed amazing, and it is made entirely of common paper. With the help of an assistant, Li Hongbo stuck more than 30,000 sheets together with carefully placed stripes of glue to form what look like two large blocks of balsa wood. Using an electric saw, he carved these stacks into identical human figures. One he leaves intact, except for a toppled head; the other is stretched out like a vast accordion, its torso and limbs looping around the gallery space like a gigantic Slinky toy. Many visitors find it hard to believe that it ever looked anything like its upright twin. The artist hopes the work will awaken viewers to what captivates his own imagination: “the endless possibilities of paper.” (src. White Rabbit Collection)
