Morning Glory, (2007), installation
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

Morning Glory is a common name for over a thousand species of flowering plants in the family the Convolvulaceae , belonging to the following genera :

As the name implies, morning glory flowers, which are funnel-shaped, open at morning time, allowing them to be pollinated by hummingbirds, butterflies, bees and other daytime insects and birds, as well as Hawkmoth at dusk for longer blooming variants. The flower typically lasts for a single morning and dies in the afternoon. New flowers bloom each day. The flowers usually start to fade a couple of hours before the petals start showing visible curling. They prefer full sun throughout the day, and mesic soils. In cultivation, most are treated as perennial plants in tropical areas, and as annual plants in colder climates, but some species tolerate winter cold.


M.I.A sample is dope!


Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý captures images using handmade cameras built from salvaged material - discarded wooden spools, elastics, eyeglass lenses, and cardboard tubing find new life as part of his imaging gear. The resulting work is a testament to the poetic value error, imprecision, and circumstance can add to art.

When asked about the theory behind his work, Tichy replied -

If you want to be famous, you have to do whatever you're doing worse than anyone else in the whole world.

Mickey Says: "What does confidence do that talent can't?"

Spoken word is a lost artform... Its safe to say I found it. Over Ahmad Jamal's classic beat I drop jewel's. Poetry style...

Stephanie Dotson's work is clearly a league in its own its "exciting and distinctly individual design style and visual presence layering the slick edges of digital media design with a sweetly awkward illustrative style." Visit Stephanie Dotson HERE!
