Sunday Inspirations 
Art is a prism of philosophy and emotion. Only through wisdom, perspective and emotive creative thought can art be truly expressible. 
The blending of the philosophical and the creative is a depiction of man’s reality in both his singular spirituality and in his relationship to the universe. It expresses ideals and vision and the vitality of world views and culture. 
True masterpieces are steeped in philosophical ideas and free associative thinking. They are a symbiosis of the imaginal and the scientific; a translation of life’s complicated and beautiful network.
When the principles of science and art are no longer distinguishable this is when beauty is fully realized; an intellectual and aesthetic prism. 
Image Gustav Klimt 


This is a subject that thinkers have written on for centuries, distilled to a perfect beautiful passage. Well done.

world’s first temperature controlled city to be built in dubai

find out all about the mall of the world here.

On it’s face this seems like a terrible idea. Maybe they are designing it in a way that won’t consume tremendous resources, but given the location, it seems like a giant greenhouse in a desert to me.

The Mountain View, California-based search giant announced Monday it is opening up its Glass Explorer program to the United Kingdom—the first time Google Glass will be sold outside the U.S. U.K. residents who are 18 or older will be able to purchase Glass for £1,000, the equivalent of about $1,700, $200 higher than its price tag in the U.S.

The one thing that consistenly surprises me about Google Glass is that anyone cares about it. This is the bluetooth headset of the smart-phone age. It (and devices like it) will have limited appeal, but overall, they are creepy and their utility doesn’t make up for their social stigma.

Pixelated: The LED Art of Jim Campbell
David Behringer, design-milk.com
In a world of higher-definition and ever-flatter screens, artist Jim Campbell is using cutting-edge technology to do the reverse, producing blurry low-resolution images with three-dimensional screens… or no screens at all.On view right now at Bryc…

If I were a lunatic millionaire, I’d commission a gigantic version of this for my foyer.

Have we actually gotten to the point where we are filling out quizzes to determine what people will remember us for? Do we really need to get formulaic and self-serving answers to questions as profound as this one? 

My mind is blown not only that this exists but that someone would choose to broadcast the results. This status might as well be “I desperately need a hug.”
