"We Feel Fine"

"An exploration of human emotion, in six movements"
by Jonathan Harris and Sep Kamvar

Really interesting interactive site that pulls the emotions posted by people on their blogs every few hours and presents the contextual sentences here. It makes the world feel a little smaller, and reminds us of the human connections we sometimes forget are innate.

"I need love, so I don't find it I paint" Hala Faisal

This is a video from the BBC website from some time in December. Hala Faisal, a Syrian painter briefly talks about her life and her art. I love how her studio in Damascus has paintings all over the walls and doors. The studio/living space has such a good spirit to it.

I came across Kristiana Parn's drawings when just image searching... I really like the simplicity of her work and the choice of using bold spot colors. Really nice :)
