4D Type, 2011 by Lo Siento from Spain

“4D Typography is the result of intersectioning, in an orthogonal way in space, two extrusions of the same character, which allows the spectator to read it from, minimum, two different positions in space.

An observer searching to enjoy a particular architecture, is forced to move around and through it. The change in perspective generates new spaces in which light acts in different ways. In this case, it is the typography who makes the effort of abandoning its two dimensions to approach the architectural sense. It does not resign with a third dimension; a fourth one is necessary to complete the reading possibilities. By hanging the typography, the reader is allowed to surround the characters in order to understand all their shapes.”

"Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”
I just love this. This is like all of my book-filled childhood imaginings wrapped into a little quote. I strongly suspect that compassion - for one’s self and for others - is more powerful than we allow ourselves to realize.

“I used to think I was the strangest person in the world but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine her, and imagine that she must be out there thinking of me too. Well, I hope that if you are out there and read this and know that, yes, it’s true I’m here, and I’m just as strange as you.”

"Everyone has a backbone. Use yours."

Everybody has a backbone. The Backbone Zone is a project to help students find theirs, and to give them tools to confront gender-bullying, sexual harassment, and sexist and homophobic language when they see and hear it.

Brilliant counter to sexist and homophobic words (which cause more harm than many people care to realize).  Time to take responsibility for ourselves, folks. Stop hating now.

The Green Children by Agnes Cecile

So here comes a whole new way to experience the visual process. HOW LONG before the animated GIF sequence becomes standard? It should be already, but perhaps I’m just demanding.

The Mathematics of Beauty

The Fibonacci Sequence is a sequence of numbers where each number is the sum of the previous two—i.e., 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34…and so on to infinity. The ratio of one number to the next is approximately 1.61803, which is called “phi”, or the Golden Ratio. (via sciencesoup)

We have to remember that what
we observe is not nature herself,
but nature exposed to our method
of questioning.

Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
