Manifold Curiosity

Tell me why world, unfathomable and good,
The beauty of everything is infinite and cruel.
An airplane, a puppet, an orange, a spoon,
A window, and outside
Stars and the moon. (Kayo Dot)

So I’ve opened a new blog to continue the same ideas as this one. This blog won’t be closed (it won’t be updated either) but I’ll shift my focus on the other one. Here’s the link to the new blog.

"And he couldn’t stand himself to be nothing, to know himself nothing. He needs to be listened to, he needs to be heard. He needs at least the illusion of being understood."

- Margaret Atwood, Oryx and Crake (via ficciones-y-malentendidos)

"…J’ai résumé L’Étranger, il y a longtemps, par une phrase dont je reconnais qu’elle est très paradoxale: ‘Dans notre sociéte tout homme qui ne pleure pas à l’enterrement de sa mère risque d’être condamné à mort.’ Je voulais dire seulement que le héros du livre est condamné parce qu’il ne joue pas le jeu. En ce sens, il est étranger à la société ou il vit, il erre, en marge, dans les faubourgs de la vie privée, solitaire, sensuelle. Et c’est pourquoi des lecteurs ont été tenté de le considérer comme une épave. Meursault ne joue pas le jeu. La réponse est simple: il refuse de mentir."

- Albert Camus sur L’Étranger (via albertbeauchardcamus)

"Study me as much as you like, you will never know me, for I differ a hundred ways from what you see me to be. Put yourself behind my eyes, and see me as I see myself, for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see."

- Rumi (via sol-psych)

Benoit Paillé. Illuminated Landscapes.

Montreal-based photographer Benoit Paillé has been working on a fascinating series of landscapes using a bizarre lighting method involving a suspended glowing square. The images above are not photoshopped, the 1×1 meter light is instead hung in the center of each photograph and the resulting image shows the unique form of illumination that creeps into the surrounding area. Paillé says his goal is to redefine what a landscape photograph is by questioning its reality, creating a kind of poetic moment in space and time. You can see many more of his Alternative Landscapes on Flickr. (by Christopher)
