    how do you guys feel about temporary architecture/art? ie grand, beautiful stuff that is to be cathartically destroyed - or torn down only to be experienced for a short time

    here's some stuff near and dear to my heart:

    trojan horse (it was pretty huge...) - from burning man 2011
    [​IMG]
    this thing was pulled by hundred of "slaves" driven by "spartans" out into the middle of the playa....then at night it was set ablaze in an awesome conflagaration. it was boiling hot from like hundreds of feet away

    or this, the temple is different every year - this year it's said to have been the highest, foundationless plywood construction in the world...[​IMG]
    i've seen some pretty cool stuff/places over the years. the temples at bman and the golden temple are the two most humbling and spiritual places i have ever experienced.

    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]
    this thing took weeks to build...there's thousands of people watching this, yet everyone is silent.


    this year the temple wasnt just a beautiful place for meditating, remembering, contemplating; it was also an instrument
    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]
    the center of it was full of bells - so much synesthaesia
    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]
    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]

    this is "tv" - one guy and others in our camp were responsible for the creation of this giant TV of TVs with hours of random media ranging from a police instruction video on handling an emergency birth in the backseat of a car (no censoring), to clips of fresh prince and WWE. fuckin amazing

    A lot of people say the temp art stuff is gimmicky, but I don't know, I really like it. It is basically the same concept as tibetan mandalas, which was amazing to experience them do live

    They have coloured sand in those sticks/tubes, and by rubbing it with another stick, they're able to control the amount of sand that comes out. It's incredibly painstaking work.

    After it's completed, the sand is sand is brushed together and spread everywhere...impermanence

    I'd love to go to Burning man, had this friend in HS who went one year and told me all about it when he got back, sounded crazy at the time. Haven't watched the vids yet.


    Also, yall need to center your posts, it's classy .

    This could quickly turn into an art and animation dump for me...

    Okay, so let me start by offering some great animation -

    then a comic strip I worked on with a friend of mine (awesome art is his, story, concept etc. including horrible dialogue is mine) -

    and finally, a strip from a comic based in Nigeria called Light, Sweet Crude -

    I once had a French professor who assured me that Baudelaire's Fleurs du Mal was about nothing more than finding beauty in even the ugliest of things.

    TSE: “So far as we are human, what we do must be either evil or good; so far as we do evil or good, we are human: and it is better, in a paradoxical way, to do evil than to do nothing: at least we exist”

    CB: "Ces plaisanteries nerveuses ne sont pas sans péril, et on peut souvent les payer cher. Mais qu’importe l’éternité de la damnation à qui a trouvé dans une seconde l’infini de la jouissance?"

    Rejoinder: “The expected guest./ He, the young man carbuncular, arrives,/…The time is now propitious, as he guesses,/ The meal is ended, she is bored and tired,/ Endeavours to engage her in caresses/ Which still are unreproved, if undesired./ Flushed and decided, he assaults at once;/ Exploring hands encounter no defence; His vanity requires no response,/ And makes a welcome of indifference/…She turns and looks a moment in the glass,/ Hardly aware of her departed lover;/ Her brain allows one half-formed thought to pass:/ ‘Well now that’s done: and I’m glad it’s over.’/ When lovely woman stoops to folly and/ Paces about her room again, alone,/ She smoothes her hair with automatic hand”

    HPL: "I said to myself, with all the ardor of a sculptor, that this man was a faun's statue out of antique Hellas, dug from a temple's ruins and brought somehow to life in our stifling age only to feel the chill and pressure of devastating years. And when he opened his immense, sunken, and wildly luminous black eyes I knew he would be thenceforth my only friend- the only friend of one who had never possessed a friend before- for I saw that such eyes must have looked fully upon the grandeur and the terror of realms beyond normal consciousness and reality; realms which I had cherished in fancy, but vainly sought. So as I drove the crowd away I told him he must come home with me and be my teacher and leader in unfathomed mysteries, and he assented without speaking a word. Afterward I found that his voice was music- the music of deep viols and of crystalline spheres. We talked often in the night, and in the day, when I chiseled busts of him and carved miniature heads in ivory to immortalize his different expressions."

    Detritus at the ECB: Rat's Alley, where the dead men lost their bones



    ***Addendum: "He moaned to himself like some baffled, prowling beast. He wanted to sin with another of his kind, to force another being to sin with him and to exult with her in sin. He felt some dark presence moving irresistibly upon him from the darkness, a presence subtle and murmurous as a flood filling him wholly with itself."

    Yeah, I watched it years ago. Was rewatching Snatch today and remembered Vinnie Jones in that film. Need to rewatch SS5+ too, it has been a while...

    Was little surprised to see the pimp funeral scene from Truck Turner show up on A Suitable Wardrobe, of all places. That post has accompanying commentary from one-time prominent SF poster RJMan, now just generally prominent.

    hmm ~ this place seems to have turned into the stylish movie thread, appendix A.

    a different direction is what i present -- usps/ebay free boxes, priority size large, far too big for sending shoes.
    surgical procedures
    retain only first five inches in height
    bandage resultant box together
    wait for bizarre expression on agent's face​

    As an art object, I appreciate that. But as a practical thing, isn't the purpose of the free boxes that you (i.e., USPS) then have dozens of same-sized things for easy packing/stacking/shipping? One oddball could ruin it!

    It seems a bit tortuous and the product of a malign mind assuredly.
