I'm intrigued by the various ways in which Allyson Gee displays butterflies. The geometric forms that mimic a standard display case really play off of the abstract patterns that are featured on each pair of symmetrical wings.


Sometimes I wish I could capture entire moments, with all five senses intact. I would especially like to remember how (naïvely?) optimistic I was about moving here. I need that wide-eyed feeling again! Anika Smulovitz interprets this "human desire to label and collect all aspects of our surroundings" through her herbarium specimen rings that encase an element of nature in glass to preserve its qualities... though the feeling is short lived. I guess I'm better off with present moments, anyway. Time for me to move on forward!

Oh, and this won't be the last time I'm posting the work of the talented Anika Smulovitz -- she executes her thought-provoking concepts extremely well!

Just spent about an hour going through the old posts of a favorite tumblr of mine, ՇᏂᏋ אᏫՊᎪᎠᏐᏣ ᎦᏌՌ ◉. And I have come to the conclusion that I MUST find a hammock this summer to nap in.
