“Those who do not want to imitate anything, produce nothing.” – Salvador Dali
This week’s edition of News From the Craft + Style Blogosphere has inky eyes, imagined cooing, double exposures and coin slot lamentations. I’m already squealing over the tiny sea creatures ahead…
I know in my heart of hearts that I shouldn’t project human attributes or personalities onto creatures that could very well have no eyes and brains the size of a dandruff flake. However, that doesn’t stop me from wanting to squeeze these sea creatures’ microscopic, gelatinous tentacles and coo like a mother into their nonexistent ears. [Via English Russia]
You wouldn’t know it today, to see the acres of cigarette butts, high-rise condo behemoths and exposed coin slots, but Coney Island was once a fantastical wonderland of the senses. The side show was still politically incorrect, the boardwalk not yet mottled and the swimsuits conservative and woolen. Those were the days. [Via Blood Milk]
Double exposure sometimes comes off as played-out art school fodder: double up images through random film accidents, and boom: magical results. Photographer Tierney Gearon utilizes what could be a hackneyed technique toward new ends. Shot with film, then printed without retouching, there’s nothing accidental about the syncing of these images. The vivid saturation and interplay of subjects make for a fascinating sight.
