This is one of my favorite paintings of all time – Un dimanche après-midi à l’Ile de la Grande Jatte, or Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte, by Georges Seurat.
I took this video a couple of days ago using my phone. I love the circular effect, caused by the reflection of the streetlamp. I have seen the same thing during rain and snow while looking upwards trough tree branches, I’ll have to try and catch that sometime.
(the video quality is poor but I have my phone handy more often than my camera).
A picture gallery of weird statues around the world. Warning: many are not work-safe.
Among my favorites: The man who measures the clouds by Jan Fabre, Belgium
I was looking for an excuse to inaugurate my Art category! This flash-based mural “Zoom Quilt II” is simply hypnotic. It’s a series of nested pieces of art, where zooming into one seamlessly expands upon the other. Just click the link and you’ll see what I mean.
UPDATE: Here’s the original Zoom Quilt. It’s more artistic and less surreal, but just as compelling.
