Hi , I wont be updating this blog much because there has been a shift in focus. COME SEE MY ART AT my new thing ART MONEY
"Buckminster Fuller's geometry shows that any sphere tangentially and symmetrically surrounded by spheres of the same radius will always produce an array of twelve balls around one ball. This phenomenon defines what he calls the Vector Equilibrium. The transparent spheres of this sculpture give it an ethereal quality reminiscent of a child's bubble blowing while lucidly presenting the concept. Faintly visible equators illustrate the tangency of adjacent balls and the red nuclear sphere clarifies the radial symmetry of the structure. Twenty-four rods delineate the edges of the polyhedron uniquely determined by the nuclear packing of spheres. Its shape is unaffected by additional layers of balls. Two layers surround the nucleus which classifies this structure as "two-frequency," a term that refers to the subdivisions along each edge."Taken from here : Art Net Buckminster Fuller
Have you noticed how much people use this word? It seems to be a worm withering through conversations. Is it encouraged by the 'like' button? Trust me once you start noticing, you can't escape it. I point you to the late Christopher Hitchens who discusses it like, you know, more eloquently n' stuff.
"(like)is an example of “filler” words being used as props, to try to shore up a lame sentence. People who can’t get along without “um” or “er” or “basically” (or, in England, “actually”) or “et cetera et cetera” are of two types: the chronically modest and inarticulate, such as Ms. Kennedy, and the mildly authoritarian who want to make themselves un-interruptible. Saul Bellow’s character Ravelstein is a good example of the latter: in order to deny any opening to a rival, he says “the-uh, the-uh” while searching for the noun or concept that is eluding him."read the rest here The Other L-Word
THINK how are we even going to speak to advanced alien life forms if we can't even speak to our sea brothers? As reported by the Acoustical Society of America, those ironic Japanese have developed a speaker that can hopefully initiate human to dolphin networking,
“To gain new insights into how dolphins communicate, researchers in Japan created a prototype of an extremely broadband “dolphin speaker” capable of projecting dolphins’ communication sounds, whistles, burst-pulse sounds, as well as detection sounds such as echolocation clicks.”

Hey there creative buddy! Need some perspective on that idea? Phase that thought or question in your head, then pull a Oblique Strategies flashcard for some guidance. Devised by Brian Eno and Peter Schmidt, they remind me of how people use the Tarot or Oracle cards
|"over one hundred worthwhile dilemmas"|
Heres a demo of the cards in action. (The babe in this clip is so incredible)
If you cant get your hands on the real thing, or crave instant gratification,

One is the knot of raw potential to be untied and initiated, the point of beginnings, it is the inspired idea not yet formed, a seed charged with active potential.
