Wabe Sabe

Nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect.

 

There is an understated elegance in the quirks and anomalies of nature. It's the beauty and serenity that comes with aging flowers, when the life of the object and its impermanence are evidenced in its patina and wear is what creates a spiritual longing called Wabi Sabe.

Exhibit-it's insight:

Wonderful photographic botanicals, rich in detail by photographer Stacy Kirk.

Via Shelana Edwards
Exhibit-it's insight:

Great idea! A&E's "Biography" featured many artists, and were well received. We love to be entertained and educated "in video", I'd pay to see a feature length film on Manet.

Self-Portraits: Smartphones Reveal a Side Bias in Non-Artists

Self-Portraits: Smartphones Reveal a Side Bias in Non-Artists | Art: Inspiration, Creativity and Stories | Scoop.it

According to surveys of art books and exhibitions, artists prefer poses showing the left side of the face when composing a portrait and the right side when composing a self-portrait. However, it is presently not known whether similar biases can be observed in individuals that lack formal artistic training. We collected self-portraits by naïve photographers who used the iPhone™ front camera, and confirmed a right side bias in this non-artist sample and even when biomechanical constraints would have favored the opposite. This result undermines explanations based on posing conventions due to artistic training or biomechanical factors, and is consistent with the hypothesis that side biases in portraiture and self-portraiture are caused by biologically- determined asymmetries in facial expressiveness.

Something to think about.
