One of the most densely populated metropolitan areas in the world, Hong Kong has an overall density of nearly 6,700 people per square kilometer. The majority of its citizens live in flats in high-rise buildings. In Architecture of Density, Wolf investigates these vibrant city blocks, finding a mesmerizing abstraction in the buildings' facades.

These are amazing photographs. I wish I could go to the exhibition.


The Australian: Art of getting paid to drink [October 27, 2005]
Topic: Arts 2:17 pm EDT, Oct 27, 2005

LONDON: A Japanese artist has been paid �5000 ($11,800) of taxpayers' money to drink 48 bottles of beer and then fall off a wooden beam.

The "performance", which took place at an arts centre in Cardiff, has outraged members of the local council and caused bafflement among the public, many of whom do exactly that every Friday and Saturday night, without getting paid.

However, an arts centre spokesman said: "This wasn't just about a woman drinking a lot of beer. This was a powerful piece of art."

How is this art?

3D street drawings. Too cool!
Topic: Arts 12:33 am EDT, Jul 26, 2005

Julian Beever is an English artist who is famous for his art on the pavements of England, France, Germany, USA, Australia and Belgium. It's peculiarity? Beever gives his drawings an anamorphosis view, his images are drawn in such a way which gives them three dimensionality when viewing from the correct angle.

It really is pretty amazing.

So, I went ahead and made my own list. I guess this makes me the self-appointed head of the Jim Sanborn fanclub. ;)

Eminem says 'no' to Weird Al
Topic: Arts 1:39 pm EDT, May 11, 2003

] "What we heard back from him (Rosenberg) was that Eminem
] was fine with me having the parody on my album but said
] he was afraid that a Weird Al video might detract from
] his legacy, that it would somehow make people take him
] less seriously as an important hip-hop artist," Yankovic
] said.
] Yankovic said even though he didn't get to make the
] video, he's grateful Eminem let him use the song in the
] first place. "I'm grateful to Eminem; he at least let me
] put it on the album," Yankovic said. “I have to say I'm
] extremely disappointed at the same time; frankly, this
] was going to be the best video that I've ever done."

Anthropologist says Shakespeare might have smoked marijuana
Topic: Arts 9:27 pm EDT, May  5, 2003

] Several 17th-century clay pipes found at the site of
] William Shakespeare's home were used to smoke marijuana,
] a South African anthropologist says. Although he has no
] proof that the Bard was the guy who smoked the pipes, he
] surmises that some of Shakespeare's sonnets and plays
] also lend credence to the possibility that the writer
] smoked marijuana for inspiration.

] Thackeray said his "hobby" developed after he played
] the part of the ghost in Shakespeare's "Hamlet" in
] 1998. That renewed his interest in Shakespeare's work.
] He noticed a reference in Sonnet No. 76 to "invention
] in a noted weed." "Weed" is a slang term for marijuana,
] and "invention" can refer to writing. The same sonnet
] refers to "compounds strange," a known reference to
] drugs. In Sonnet 27, Shakespeare wrote about "a journey
] in my head." Sonnet No. 118 speaks of "to make our
] appetite more keen, with eager compounds we our palate
] urge." Perhaps a reference to marijuana as an appetite
] stimulant, Thackeray wonders.

] Intrigued, Thackeray asked the Shakespeare Birthplace
] Trust in Stratford-upon-Avon to allow South African
] researchers with state-of-the-art equipment to analyze
] 24 pipe fragments. Marijuana degrades over time, but
] eight of the fragments showed signs suggestive of
] marijuana, he said. Two also showed evidence of cocaine.

The pot head thing wouldn't shock me in the least.. However, freebasing cocaine dosen't fit my image of Shakespeare.

Gucci Gets Go-Ahead for Pubic Hair Ad

We the people, in order to see this commercial, will have to wait for the "The Sexiest Commercials You've Never Seen" and even then it will have the beloved black box or "fuzzy-pixelator". Makes you think about what issues are really important. God Bless the British.
