Surreal Dream Worlds Come Alive in Imaginative Photo Series

Surreal Dream Worlds Come Alive in Imaginative Photo Series | Stuff I Found Intriguing | Scoop.it
Michigan-based conceptual photographer Logan Zillmer creates visual dreams through his inventive photography. In each composition, the artist's imagination comes alive through layers of colors, textures, and filters that produce unique effects through digital manipulation.
Nothing is what it seems in the collection of surreal photography, where the world becomes a playground of unexpected surprises. People, places, objects, and events come together in such strange combinations that it feels as though a dream has emerged right before your eyes.
The lighting, various elements, and creative concepts behind each photograph are extremely powerful and Zillmer's skills at blending images together into one final product are amazing. Viewers will be impressed by the side range of narratives that he creates with such an inventive imagination. The artist says, "Photography has always been second nature to me, both because I’ve done it since I was 15 and because it is just how my mind works.”…

Seinfeld's 25 greatest contributions to the English language

Seinfeld's 25 greatest contributions to the English language | Stuff I Found Intriguing | Scoop.it

"

Twenty-five years ago this Saturday, Seinfeld debuted on NBC.

It didn’t do particularly well at first, but it slowly began gathering viewers and then — yada yada yada — it permanently changed the way that we, as New Yorkers, talk.

In honor of those 25 years, here are 25 things that Seinfeld added to the popular vernacular over the course of its nine seasons on the air (1989-98)."

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 3, 2014 7:27 PM

The cultural geographies of New York and the United States are heavily influenced by pop culture...and Seinfeld certainly changed the way people talked.

Astoria's 'Garden of Surging Waves' set to open after winding journey

Astoria's 'Garden of Surging Waves' set to open after winding journey | Stuff I Found Intriguing | Scoop.it
It has taken nine years, $3 million -- a third of which was donated -- and at times, some thick skin to deal with the criticism of Astorians growing impatient. But today, most agree, this little park has been well worth the wait.
John Jung's insight:

Astoria, Oregon opens "Garden of Surging Waves' designed by Suenn Ho in tribute to its Chinese pioneers, who were major contributors to the region even though they were badly mistreated.

Playful Miniature Sculptures Inspire Imaginative Narratives

Playful Miniature Sculptures Inspire Imaginative Narratives | Stuff I Found Intriguing | Scoop.it
Artist Kendal Murray builds miniature mixed-media sculptures that take viewers on a playful and imaginative journey. Using tiny toy figures and objects, Murray builds small worlds filled with creative memories, daydreams, and fantasies. The artist says, "The idea of creating these miniature works came from dream states and how we are able to play with our own identity, to play with different roles we take on in our dream state. So the miniature works serve as a metaphor for intuitive thoughts."
To construct the sculptures, Murray dips the figures into glue and then uses tweezers to delicately and precisely place them into the scenes—all of the which are set on unexpected objects like inside of a glass tea pot, on top of a small purse, or on one side of a compact mirror. By using such a specific base for each arrangement, Murray defines the boundaries of her story and invites viewers to peer in closely to get a better look. Each work is just a snapshot, but exactly what the story is…

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages

Launching Scoop.it for Google+: authorship and posting to Google+ Company pages | Stuff I Found Intriguing | Scoop.it
While some debate whether Google+ is a ghost town or not, the search giant's social network quietly passed the 1 Billion user mark. That's right: 1 Billion people have a Google+ account which is 2x Twitter's user base and only 15% less than Facebook's. Perhaps more importantly, the +1 button is pressed more than 5 million times a day and 340 million of its users are active.
Scoopiteers didn’t need to wait for those metrics to be public to demand that we add Google+ to the Scoop.it’s sharing options: as our platform is a hub to discover, curate and share content to feed your online channels, it’s natural to offer as many distribution options as possible. So today, after integrating  with Facebook profiles and pages, LinkedIn profiles, groups and pages, Twitter and many other social platform such as Wordpress or Tumblr, we’re excited to launch our integration with Google+ with 2 new features:
