I like several things
the sun on a cold day
the smell of my house
the pastry bit on cheesecakes
the night sky with no artificial lighting
the city, the life
the country, the natural
the colours of the rainbow
the joy when I make others smile
the idea of mini coopers
the feeling of hot water running down your throat
the taste of peanut butter sandwiches
the sound of crinkling plastic sleeves
the clicking of cameras
the smell of burning candles (like, actually)
the fulfilment when you do a good deed
the thought of freedom
the dreaming of a good night's sleep
the lyrics to real songs
you click ENTRIES by the way

more art everyone
Live interactive art video installation at the experimental art festival Le Flash in Atlanta, GA. Two Hmong actors engage with the audience via live video feed to them inside the building. The audience engages the heads by speaking into the provided microphones. The heads are projected 14 feet high and tower over the people outside. The heads are meant to intimidate the audience and reverse the roles of majority and minority and give the audience the feeling of being an immigrant in a foreign country. A collaborative project by Stefani Byrd and Wes Eastin made possible by a grant from the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival. Featuring Faith and Jeff Her.
so basically, they put these male and female Hmong (something Asian?) actors behind screens so you can't see them, but they can see you. there are microphones for the people who pass by to speak into and interact with these floating heads. this was all held at an Art Festival, so it wasn't super super strange. but honestly, the stranger the better I THINK.
it's the best.
it made me
laugh (not that that's saying much) because no one can understand a word they say. they just act really funny.
