Massimo Listri explores some of the world’s most popular museums, but only when every last soul has left the building. These commanding photos have a sense of awe and silence that is simply terrific!

The Nature of Origami
Bernie Peyton uses some of the best animal origami I’ve ever seen to call attention to threatened species and remind us that nature’s treasures (the living ones, not the paper ones) are worth protecting. Check out his gallery … I bet you can’t pick out a favorite!

Wonderful documentary of the day. Bookmark this for a watch at lunch - really interesting collection of interviews and opinions
The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed creativity and talent in an unprecedented way, with unlimited opportunities.
But does democratized culture mean better art or is true talent instead drowned out? This is the question addressed by PressPausePlay, a documentary film containing interviews with some of the world’s most influential creators of the digital era. presspauseplay.com @presspauseplay Facebook: on.fb.me/y4gEK1
Good lazy afternoon watch. Really interesting conversation with people involved in all levels of the creative process, discussing the music, film, and writing industries. It explores the transition of art into the digital age and the effect of democratizing the creative process - its benefits and downfalls. The interviewees touch on the beauty of accessibility in art these days due to improvements in technology, but also the loss of craft that goes along with it. It really makes you think about what it means to be an artist in this day and age.
Amy Friend scours the internet, antique shops, and even old family albums in search of interesting vintage photos. After that, she allows tiny holes of light to shine through the figures!

It makes me cringe that she’s poking holes in vintage photographs, but it’s so pretty! Not the first time I’ve seen this concept and I really want to try it…
Myoung Ho Lee - Photography Act (2007)
“Lee has produced an elaborate series of photographs that pose some unusual questions about representation, reality, art, environment and seeing. Simple in concept, complex in execution, he makes us look at a tree in its natural surroundings, but separates the tree artificially from nature by presenting it on an immense white ground, as one would see a painting or photograph on a billboard.”
This is one of those photo concepts where you think “Oh, this sounds kind of cool.” And then you see the photographs, and you realize that there’s more to a good photography project than a seemingly cool concept.
