marina abramović made me cry

i came across a set of photos on flickr belonging to the museum of modern art (ny), it’s called marina abramović: the artist is present – portraits. naturally i was intrigued as to why there were over 1,300 photos of all these different people, some crying, and who is marina abramović? turns out she is a performance artist who is currently performing a piece called the artist is present. she sits in the museum during opening hours (7 hours a day), and you as a visitor are allowed to sit across from her in silence … for as long as you can hold out it seems. this is who you’re up against:

i might have to get this cup to drink my tea out of at the office, as we are faced with severe cup politics – don’t use my cup and i won’t use yours kind of thing.

glee

i started watching glee this weekend, and even though i am pretty late to jump on the bandwagon the one advantage is that i get to watch all the episodes in a row – and naturally i did. well, at least 14 of them.

nasty gal

i have been sucked into the platform shoes obsession… these are from nasty gal (love the black ones)

i’m sure many of you are going “eeeeeeew” right now, but i find myself undeniably attracted to them! :-/

worth a thousand words

jordan smith aka what makes the pie shops tick? collects found vintage photographs & ephemera that i can browse for ages and ages (and have done). his collection is amazingly extensive and gives you a glimpse into the lives of ordinary americans in the fifties and sixties.
