Black Swan









Ah! I cannot wait to see this movie..but apparently it's not playing anywhere in Sarasota or Bradenton? or Sam can't read movie listings..one or the other. But I was really excited to find out that the Mulleavy sisters of Rodarte designed the costumes for the movie. These are some sketches by Kate Mulleavy..I really like her style.

Aurora Borealis


I can't even imagine what it would be like seeing this..maybe I'll get lucky enough some day..

For some reason seeing the Northern Lights always reminds me of that scene from Balto..I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing..

Baliki Kaplica


Artist Namiko Kitaura, from her website: Kangal Baliki Kaplica, Turkey: a tourist, riddled with a dermatitis branded incurable by western medicine, bathes in a hot spring and is miraculously cured. Diseased flesh is eaten away by magical Baliki fish, exposing new skin to sunlight and nutrient-rich spring water. An epic healing process begins...

Artist Namiko Kitaura went to Baliki Kaplica expecting something mystical, spiritual, magical even. Images of transcendental healing immediately sprang to mind - of diseased skin being renewed, rendered beautiful once more, schools of tiny magical fish swimming in a pool of holy water. In the end, the experience was something far more earthbound, human and humbling. Elements of healing seemed far more on the level of psyche, a healing on an emotional landscape rather than on a physical one.

Namiko Kitaura was born in Tokyo in 1977. She has had experience as a freelance photographer in Tokyo/ London / Paris, and as an artist in residence at Fabrica, the Benetton communication research centre in Italy. She produces distinctive images with a strong, personal voice. The implied Romanticism within her works is both abstract and absolute. The images contemplate each other sensually, with a sense of graceful motion suspended in a non-temporal framework. She aims to visualize the almost invisible aspects of the human condition that lie below the physical, and their juxtaposition: passion in depression, comfort in sadness, tranquility in chaos and beauty in ugliness.
