Costa Rica Vacations: In Textures

Costa Rica Vacations: In Textures | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it

I simply love nature (and so does my bunch - Phil, Tristan and Eloise), so even if we live by the beach in San Francisco our family’s Costa Rica vacations is still something I always look forward for.  We simply have our own piece of paradise over there – closer to nature and closer to family as well!  Life simply gets better when you are surrounded by the raw beauty of Mother Nature.

Lisa Burnham's insight:

For this eco-activist/entrepreneur/mom – the idea of vacationing in Costa Rica is more than a welcome thought anytime of the year (although of course, the same can’t be said about hubby’s work and the kids’ schooling).  That’s the beauty of my home-based business – I’m free to enjoy family and life and yet still manage a business straight from a laptop or even a mobile.  Now that’s a freedom lifestyle!

Lisa Burnham's insight:

Arts and crafts projects with kids are always messy; readily expect that even before starting this activity.  Using a drop cloth on your working surface and or area could help minimize the mess.  Using washable markers, adhesives and other art materials can also make cleaning up a lot easier.

 

You can always turn to the internet when researching for inspirations for arts and crafts or other diy projects.  There are a lot of websites offering ideas and tips for arts and crafts projects that is suitable for your kids’ age group.

Artist Uses Tape to Create Fluorescent 3D-Like Installations - PSFK

Artist Uses Tape to Create Fluorescent 3D-Like Installations - PSFK | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it
Artist Aakash Nihalani uses materials like tape, plastics, magnets and wood to create his street art.

Via Thomas Faltin
Lisa Burnham's insight:

Nihalani uses materials to create fluorescent geometric shapes – isometric squares and rectangles – that look like they have been digitally incorporated into the real world. The artist also uses a live model or two to clearly present the optical illusions behind his street art installations. When there is a live person interacting with the installation, it becomes clear how the art work creates a new kind of space that adds an element of playfulness and whimsy into the existing physical area.

Photography Tips for Beginners

Photography Tips for Beginners | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it
Perhaps you are interested in photography and want to start taking interesting pictures. Well, your timing could not have been any better. Below are some tricks
Lisa Burnham's insight:

Don’t be afraid to try out new things; experiment in taking new and original pictures. An excellent picture needs to have its own personal style to it, something that you can share with the rest of the world. Do not take the same pictures you've seen everywhere over and over millions of times. You can lay on the ground to capture something above you, or perhaps shoot down from a balcony. You’re free to express your creativity through your photographs.

Small Japanese Village Turns Rice Paddies into Awe-Inspiring Works of Art

Small Japanese Village Turns Rice Paddies into Awe-Inspiring Works of Art | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it
Inakadate village, located near Hirosaki city in Japan’s Aomori prefecture, is one of the few places in the world where farming and art go hand-in-hand. The village is renowned for its unique form of landscape art created in paddy fields.

Via F. Thunus
Lisa Burnham's insight:

To create rice paddy art, famers combine a range of colorful rice strains along with the traditional green. These different varieties of rice grow naturally, without the use of artificial colorants. Tsugaru Roman, for instance, is green. Yukiasobi rice is white and Beniasobi rice is red. Other ancient strains of rice are used for purple and yellow. The rice paddy artists initially started with simple patterns, evolving to more complex and elaborate ones over time.

The line between art and photography | Ming Thein

The line between art and photography | Ming Thein | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it


Here’s a provocative question: is this image art? Why? Why not? Have a think about this carefully, for a moment. Today I’m going to crack open the lid of one of the biggest cans of worms in the whole of photography, peer inside, give you my 1.53 cents* and try not to fall inside.

*Devaluated from two cents since 2009 due to underdeclared inflation, quantitative easing, foreign debt and other economic screwups

 

Perhaps the biggest struggle photography has faced historically as a medium is to be taken seriously as an art form. I’d say it’s only in the last couple of decades that the results at auction have been able to hold their own against traditional art forms; even if a good chunk of us don’t understand why – myself included. (I’m probably not the only one thinking of Andreas Gursky here.) Yet we don’t have photographs insured for hundreds of millions of dollars, or exhibited behind bulletproof glass, or even the subject of exciting art heists – let alone Hollywood movies – why is this? ....

Green Art from Scrap

Creating art benefits not just your well being but even your physical body as well.  Through writing, music, dancing or visual arts, you can express yourself –
Lisa Burnham's insight:

Arts supplies stores may not always be an option to a lot of people because of financial constraints and it’ll be a shame to hinder your creativity development just because you’re lacking the materials.

It’s a good thing though that art is everywhere!

It does need a little extra creativity to see that there are arts in scrap, yes, in trash.  It’s physically there, waiting to be pick up and collected and waiting to be piece together.

Erotic art, sex toys and Victorian drag queens! Get ready for the Institute of Sexology... | Artistic Findings | Scoop.it

The Wellcome Trust is opening its most provocative exhibition yet with a history of sex research that is NOT for the faint of hearted.


Via ESRC
Lisa Burnham's insight:

The exhibition "moves between pathologies of perversion and contested ideas of normality as sex is observed, analysed and questioned" and "It traces the experiments and studies that lifted taboos in the pursuit of truths about sex and tells the remarkable personal stories of those whose questions made it a legitimate field for discussion and study," the Wellcome Trust says.
