Find me in the snow

I’ll never tire of Lady Loki. His design was so cool and the concept terribly wicked.

Hidden Mother

"Trying to get a baby or a fussy toddler to sit still for a photograph can feel like a herculean task. Luckily, it only takes a second to get the shot. In the nineteenth century, however, it was a different storyparticularly when it came to tintype portraits, which required a long exposure. 

Photographer Laura Larson’s series, Hidden Mother, presents a survey of nineteenth-century tintype portraits in which the mother of the child was included in the photograph, but obscured. 

In some instances, the mother would hold her child, with a cloth or props hiding her from the lens, or she would be painted over by the photographer after the image had been taken. In other examples, the mother is entirely absent from the frame, save for an arm, holding the child in place. 

The results are both funny and slightly disturbing. The mother appears as an uncanny presence, Larson writes in a statement. Often, she is swathed in fabric, like a ghost.”

UNIVERSA MYSTERIUM by Santiago CARUSO / Ink and scratch over plastered cardboard, 26 cm x 35 cm

The universal vibration of the snake, as a path to go through the mystery of creation, from the unveiled to the obscure. The seven spirits of the universe, the seven planets of the antiquity, the seven keys of the scale that is the experience of the world.  Music is the question, and can be an answer.

Socializing is as exhausting as giving blood. People assume we loners are misanthropes just sitting thinking, ‘Oh, people are such a bunch of assholes,’ but it’s really not like that. We just have a smaller tolerance for what it takes to be with others. It means having to perform. I get so tired of communicating.
