Dope Artness | Digestible Existentialism | DadaLifeLava

hello, In this post, the area beyond the images and videos is lava. Also, there is lava further down the page. Below is a photo of the middle of our galaxy, the Milky Way.

hello
art in your face; the floor is lava

Behold, the middle of our galaxy, the Milky Way, way up there.
In my more formative years, I was always perplexed by the idea that we could see the Milky Way in the sky, and that we were a part of it; that it is so far away, but that it is here too with us.

The density, and the space in between. As stuffed together as that looks, much of the space in between is nothing but pins of light coming in each direction (were there a mind there to consider the view). Here is the link: http://i.imgur.com/rZbdqHT.jpg Below is some totally sweet art I have had the pleasure to come across.

The density, and the space in between.

As stuffed-together as that looks, the vast majority of it is nothing but a colossal void, nothing but pins of light coming in from each direction (were there a mind with some eyes to behold and recognize this). We are here reminded of the same characteristic which is present in all so-called ‘solid objects’; though the banana looks solid, were we to ‘get in it’ as one might the vista above, we would find the banana to be rife with emptiness between its constituent parts.

Perhaps if we Magic School Bus ourselves down to the planck level, we may find that upon a spinning atom within a (nearly) infinitely small piece of banana-mush there skips a fellow in a space suit.

Below is some totally sweet art that I have had the pleasure to come across.

I don't know if it is helmet, and the silence of space, or if it is the teeth grasping the end of the toung as what I imagine to be a young boy or a small man focussed on the task, or game, at hand.

I don’t know if it is the helmet, and the silence of space, or if it is the teeth grasping the end of a tongue (as I imagine this to be a young boy or girl, or a small rotund man focussed on the task, or game at hand, holding his breath as she carefully space-skips), but I cannot breathe when I look upon this.

I'd just like to post it all, but that is rude. So go checkout the website, and if it feels good then get your art on, commission some art or something. Before we move on, please, I ask that you meet me at the ice boat below.

Yes, there are ice boats. Boats... for ice. This shot is said to be taken in Toronto, Canada, wherever that is. Surely a place with enough ice, and apparently ice-resistant cameras. And now instead of bringing our curisosity to resolution, by giving you more background info on said "ice'd boats", we're instead going to move on to an existentialist video, a short one about the impermanence of the physical world, of the nowness that is both ever present and ever fleeting.  A very pleasant, I believe. The title is dumb, but smart people are referenced, and really deep fundamental ideas and exaltations are introduced. There is some unfounded pessimism, over simplification, etc., but it comes around to a positive place at the end. Also, the video ends with a woman having a in great physical pleasure, for once I'm not sure why. Enjoy

In an easy to digest way, deep fundamental ideas and exaltations of life are introduced. There is some unfounded pessimism, over simplification, etc., but it comes around to a positive place at the end. Also, the video ends with a woman in a great physical pleasure, and for once, I’m not sure why.

Enjoy

Image look familiar? Can't you taste it? Lliver with some fava beans and a nice chianti. Salvador Dali is featured elsewhere on this blog. You can search him if you wish. Below I shall place in a paced sucession, a video on lava, a link to some Dada Life if you want their November 2013 mix... for those of you who lift, run, or what have you. And beneath that there will be a short film that was shot in bits. Music to close. Take care, and I am legitimately curious to how my momentary aversion to out-of-photo communications will affect google. w/e  - J

About Ossington

I often think but seldom share these thoughts. And if the product of my thinking is to affect anything but my own sense of satisfaction, then surely it must be shared. Here you may try to know what I believe to know.
