Jeder ist allein. : archive message rss about second self

I've got my book, I've got my dream, I've got myself and I'll be fine.

I’ve been taking a lot of night walks lately (or in tonight’s case dusk walks — I meant to see the end of the sunset from the field, but I ended up leaving a little too late). I like when the sun’s gone and it’s cool. I like the silence except for distant cars and insects. I like looking at the lines from streetlights and the light from houses near and far. I like those little glimpses into people’s lives. Sometimes it overwhelms me so much, and it’s the only love I really know. I think about what they’re thinking about when they watch their war movie or take down their laundry or do the dishes. I don’t know them at all but from what I hear when I walk beneath their window, and somehow it’s the most beautiful thing. Beauty is ordinary and I love feeling home everywhere because I can connect for a second through interactions like that.

Beautifully Repeating Skeletal Sculptures by Monika Horčicová

Czech artist Monika Horčicová creates sculptures using the repeating forms of the human skeleton. Far from being creepy, her works are beautifully complex studies of a familiar form, revealed through the use of unusual orientations and numbers.

Her “Wheel of Life” is a perfect example. Here we see 58 repeating legs and feet arrayed in a wheel-like form; the knees remaining straight until they reach the ground in what looks like a never-ending series of forward steps. At the center, or hub of the sculpture, is a fused series of hip bones forming a perfect fan.

The “Codex Rotundus” owes its name to its round shape. It is a small book of hours (9 cm diameter) made in Bruges in 1480. Thumbnails are most likely from the workshop of Dutchman Willem Date illuminator (active from 1450 to 1482). (Hildesheim Cathedral Library, Germany)

Last weekend I took some pictures of my family’s cat. He’s 12 years old so he mainly just sleeps in various spots in the house.
