Ode to my love for industrial sites

Almost every creative person seems to have a fetish for (taking pictures of/in) old factory buildings, and other things found at industrial sites.

Strangely enough, although you can find tons of nice pictures in this category I still do not get tired of those images.

One artist that makes beautiful imges of industrial sites and such is the Slovak Branislav Kropilak.

I can see right through you

(Artist) Iori Tomita works with dead animals.
After seeing the often used chemical process, during his  Fisheries Sciences studies, he decided to turn it into a money making business.In the process of decomposition, with the help of some chemicals, he stops the process when the muscles  etc. become transparent but still have their form. Add a bit of colour and save your animal in a jar with glycerine.

If you like a jar for yourself you can buy them at Tokyu Hands. If you want to you can even buy it as an app…Yeah he sure tries to make the most out of it.

Expecting your attention ’cause it ain’t the 1800s

This week I discovered the world of poodle grooming…
I was flabbergasted by this phenomenon: it has so much I like and yet I could not fully enjoy these pics…

Therefore I am very grateful to a few professional groomers that took all my concerns away.
Sandy Paws: “For those who are overly concerned about the dogs emotions. Cindy loves the attention. She will prance around and expects your attention. This is a Creative Grooming Contest and Cindy will look like this for only a few hours. After the contest Cindy will be shaved. “

this is sandy with her dog Cindy, on the cover of the great magazine Groomer to Groomer:















From a shear Groomer: “Not to sound rude but this goes out to the ones who classify this “sport” cruel to poodles. I bet it’s safe to say that the majority of you have never owned a poodle let alone a standard. so you would have no knowledge or personal experience with These dogs in the enjoyment brought by the attention that is given to them during the grooming process, and more then likely have been on the grooming table since they were pups.”

Jennifer (had a lot to say so I share the parts that convinced me):” …Sweet baby Jesus, all of you so-called animal lovers need to get a grip and do some research.This is not torturing the animal in any way. This is NOT the 1800s, it’s 2011.”

“…Contrary to popular belief, pets are not as fragile as you think. Poodles are a hunting breed for Christ’s sake. It’s not some fragile baby, it’s a DOG.”

“…NEWS FLASH: DOGS ARE COLOR BLIND. They don’t know, nor do they care what color they are. And they don’t feel embarrassment because they don’t know judgment as humans do. They only understand good and bad, or right and wrong in terms of their behavior. Jeez, sit back.”


And last but not least… Because I am in Germany:

The Forms of Colour: The Interaction of Visual Elements

In his book, The forms of colour, Karl Gerstner examines the interactions of colour and form. The book begins with an analysis of existing graphical colour spaces and the advantages, as Gerstner sees them, of the ‘uniform colour space’ (UCS) developed by Günter Wyszecki. He then goes on to examine form systems, i.e., developments in geometry since Euclid, including perspective, topologies and fractals.
