Quirky New Chalk Characters on the Streets of Ann Arbor by David Zinn

by Christopher Jobson


Michigan illustrator David Zinn (previously) has brightened the streets of Ann Arbor with his off-the-wall (or technically on-the-wall) chalk drawings since 1987. The artist works with chalk or charcoal to create site-specific artworks that usually incorporate surrounding features like cracks, street infrastructure, or found objects. Over the years he’s developed a regular cast of recurring characters including a bright green monster named Sluggo and a “phlegmatic flying pig” named Philomena.

Many of Zinn’s artworks are available as archival prints, and he recently published a new book titled Temporary Preserves. You can follow his almost daily street chalk adventures on Instagram and Facebook.

This is easily the most entertaining Japanese history video we've ever seen

This video might not help you ace a final, but it will definitely help you get motivated to study Japanese history.

Japanese history can be pretty complicated and detailed when you start looking at all the specifics, but if you’re looking for a quick review from pre-history to modern times, this video will certainly get the job done!

Titled simply and directly “history of japan,” this nine-minute, highly stylized YouTube video, complete with 90s-style animation and musical highlights, features humorous narration that will help you remember everything you learned (and then forgot) in class.

But our description can’t do it justice — you’ll just have to watch it to get the full enjoyment!

Shipwrecks and Deep Ocean Scenes Encapsulated Inside Translucent Whale Sculptures

by Kate Sierzputowski

Japanese artist Isana Yamada' s project Samsara is composed of six translucent whales mounted on thin pedestals that give each of the sculptures an illusion of movement. The whales, illuminated from within, provide a window to strange worlds locked inside their resin-coated bodies: churning submarine volcanoes, fluffy white clouds, and even polar bear skeletons that float within. The project, staged at Tokyo University of the Arts, references the circle of existence found in Buddhist traditions with each whale displaying a separate scene. The whale that represents the human dimension contains a sunken sailboat, imagery that symbolizes a difficult voyage or plight.

Yamada’s work will also be shown in an exhibition of sculptural works at the Artcomplex Center of Tokyo from March 1st through 6th. You can see more of his work on his Facebook page here. (via My Modern Met)

One Magical Instant

by Blog Import

At one magical instant the page of a book –
that string of confused, alien ciphers – shivered into meaning.
Words spoke to you, gave up their secrets; At that moment, whole universes opened.
You became, irrevocably, a reader.
– Alberto Manguel

We read to know we’re not alone.
–  C.S. Lewis

Books are the plane, and the train, and the road.

They are home.

often helplessly, into another’s skin, another’s voice, another’s soul.

Reading is everything.
Reading makes me feel like I’ve accomplished something,
learned something, become a better person.
Reading makes me smarter.
Reading gives me something to talk about later on…
Reading is grist. Reading is bliss.

I have always imagined that paradise will be a kind of library.

Portraits of Immigrants Arriving in the United States in the Early 1900s

by Michael Zhang


Ellis Island in Upper New York Bay was the busiest immigrant inspection station in the United States at the dawn of the 20th century, with millions of immigrants arrived in the United States via the island by boat.

Amateur photographer Augustus Sherman was the Ellis Island Chief Registry Clerk for a number of years in the early 1900s, and he used his special access to shoot portraits of many of the immigrants who passed through the station.

The New York Public Library recently published a collection of photographs captured by Sherman between 1902 and 1914. They document both what the immigration station was like at the time as well as special cultural outfits of the new immigrants arriving on US shores.












“It is likely that Sherman’s elaborately costumed subjects were detainees, new immigrants held at Ellis Island for one reason or another,” the NYPL writes. “While waiting for what they needed to leave the island (an escort, or money, or travel tickets), some of these immigrants may have been persuaded to pose for Sherman’s camera, donning their best holiday finery or national dress, which they had brought with them from home.”

















You can find the entire collection of 89 photos in this Flickr set.

Tiny House Alternative: The Tiny A-Frame Cabin

Tucked away in the Redwood trees of Cazadero, California stands this unassuming A-frame cabin.

It appears tiny on the outside, but the interior tells a different tale.

While one of the original aims of A-frame construction is to easily shed snow—we've previously seen what can go wrong when too much heavy snow is allowed to accumulate on a roof—it's also an efficient configuration to build and live within. Less materials are consumed than with a traditional rectilinear shape, and inside there is less cubic volume to heat or cool.

By placing seating and waist-high appliances against the walls, one can use up the awkward wall-meets-floor space. The main portion of the space offers enough distance from the walls for even tall people to walk upright.

The apex of the triangle is the perfect spot to place the loft bed.

While the second story requires sacrificing the centermost portion of the ground floor footprint with a staircase...

...the owners have made good use of the belowstairs space for storage.

If I was going to join the Tiny House movement, I think I'd opt with an A-frame over the traditional shape.
