What happens when a stream of water is exposed to an audio speaker producing a loud 24hz sine wave
Thought I’d do something healthy with my day off rather than just sleep all day. Was officially the highest person in Southern Britain at some point this afternoon :)
One of my favourite views.
mecre or ‘mechanical creatures’
Inspired by the writings of Franz Kafka and the work of artists HR Giger and Pierre Matter, Gaby is an artist who deals with the themes of individual ethics and humanity’s uninhibited intervention in complex biological systems.
The need to help individuals to achieve rebirth in the world of art through implantation and modification has become her key artistic focus. Gaby Wormann demonstrates the ability to reinterpret fragile and biomechanical contexts in her work on a mechanical and technical basis.

A CROW TRIED TO GO IN OUR CLASSROOM AND HE HAD A PEN
yes hello i am here to learn geometries
That crow is more prepared than some of my students.
You’ve all just like, completely skipped over the possibility that this crow has seen people using pens in this room, found one, and is trying to return it. There’s been videos of crows picking up sweet wrappers and stuff and placing them in bins after seeing humans put their litter in bins. I really do believe that this crow is trying to return the pen and that is ADORABLE AS HELL.
THEY ARE SO SMART I LOVE THEM
Crows are thought to be self aware by some scientists. Its perfectly possible the crow wants to return the pen to humans. Knowing it belongs to humans.

So I found these hella interesting and poked around for more information.
"[These pictures are from] a series of around 2500 "special photographs" taken by New South Wales Police Department photographers between 1910 and 1930. These "special photographs" were mostly taken in the cells at the Central Police Station, Sydney and are, as curator Peter Doyle explains, of "men and women recently plucked from the street, often still animated by the dramas surrounding their apprehension". Doyle suggests that, compared with the subjects of prison mug shots, "the subjects of the Special Photographs seem to have been allowed - perhaps invited - to position and compose themselves for the camera as they liked. Their photographic identity thus seems constructed out of a potent alchemy of inborn disposition, personal history, learned habits and idiosyncrasies, chosen personal style (haircut, clothing, accessories) and physical characteristics."
There’s heaps more in black and white here, including lots of women, and some trans people. General content warning for most crimes. Some examples:
Kathleen Ward had convictions for drunkenness, indecent language and theft. She obviously enjoyed thumbing her nose at the authorities, as can be seen in this image where she appears to have deliberately fluttered her eyes in order to ruin the long-exposure photograph. DOB: 1904.
Photo taken 16 February 1922. Convicted of using an instrument to procure a miscarriage. Janet Wright was a former nurse who performed illegal abortions from her house in Kippax Street, Surry Hills. One of her teenage patients almost died after a procedure and Wright was prosecuted and sentenced to 12 months hard labour. Aged 68.
These guys are literally called Smith and Jones. [Charged] with stealing seven packages of twine (value 14 pounds). Jones was further charged with stealing thirty horse rugs (value 15 pounds) and two bales of kapok (value 20 pounds). Smith was fined 20 pounds; Jones was sentenced to 18 months hard labour, suspended.
I seem to repost these almost every time they cross my dash.
Recycled Art by Jane Perkins
UK-based artist Jane Perkins obtains her inspiration in found objects. She uses anything from toys, shells, buttons, beads, jewelry etc. as material for her re-interpreted contemporary art. Perkins states that she doesn’t add any color, her work comes out of spontaneously placed small pieces of right size and shape.
