My digital (b)logbook. Curating the internet. Blogging stuff I sTumble upon. Main topics are love, art, home design, travel and the universe. And I like stuff...
The most fun a poor art history major can have without selling their soul for the ability to travel the world.
Google maps lets you go in places now: Musee d’Orsay, The Met, Versailles, all of the places above, and tons more. I am pleased.
ARE YOU FUCKING-!!!
SOCIAL POOL BY ALFREDO BARSUGLIAS
Artist, Alfredo Barsuglias put a pool in the Mojave desert or as I like to call it ‘more land art in the middle of nowhere’…yeah, Prada Marfa I’m talking about you.
Still its art I’d like to see. Social Pool is eleven-by-five-feet wide geometric pool in the Southern California desert a few hours away from LA. The minimalist art sculpture is open for anybody to use. Barsuglias has stipulated that only one person or small party at a time can use the pool, for no longer than 24 hours – but neither signs nor paths lead you there. Once you make reservations to visit, the GPS coordinates of Social Pool as well as the key to open its mobile cover are provided.

i find my cosmic insignificance reassuring
the stars don’t fucking care who i am or what i do
i owe the universe nothing
i exist on my own terms

when you look long enough into the abyss, you realise the abyss hasn’t even noticed you.
The Royal Greenhouses of Laeken (Dutch: Koninklijke Serres van Laken, French: Serres Royales de Laeken), are a vast complex of monumental heated greenhouses in the park of the Royal Palace of Laeken in the north of Brussels. It is one of the major tourist attractions of the city.
The complex was commissioned by King Leopold II and designed by Alphonse Balat. Built between 1874 and 1895, the complex was finished with the completion of the so-called “Iron Church”, a domed greenhouse that would originally serve as the royal chapel. The total floor surface of this immense complex is 2.5 hectares (270,000 square feet). 800,000 liters (over 200,000 US gallons) of fuel oil are needed each year to heat the buildings.
The complex can only be visited during a two-week period in April–May each year, when most flowers are in full bloom.
