Music Break: Ben Howard

November 13, 2014 — Leave a comment

This guy has been a staple on my music rotation for a while now. He sometimes plays the guitar on his lap by tapping on it but The Fear is one of Ben Howard’s best songs and somehow brings a wisdom and experience echoing an intellect far beyond his young years…

Music Break: Ben Howard

The passing of one of the great photographic visual intellects who influenced a generation (and will continue to do so). As a Philadelphia local and international star Ray will be missed by so many.

He once said his goal was “a unique way of seeing,” one in which “new eyes replaced the old.” Ray did this repeatedly over the course of his long and amazing career. No one on the planet has the photographic visual acuity of Ray Metzker. He is completely unique in this respect.  This is why so many of his works are in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art (not to mention at least 20 other Museums). In the history of photography he will always remain a singular artist that truly did invent a new way of seeing.

Rest in Peace Ray. Job well done!

(Nice piece today remembering him in the NY Times here).

In Art School they told us to either make the extraordinary ordinary or make the ordinary extraordinary. I will leave you to figure out what Do Ho Suh is up to with these miraculous and luminous objects and environments.

The Work of Do Ho Suh

 

 

Head on over to the bleuscape.com.au/blog and have a look at another masterpiece in the making. I think smaller is better when it comes to Gehry’s Vision.

Which is why I like this first phase construction shot even more than what the finished building will look like….
