Broken Light: A Photography Collective
“Broken Light’s main goal is to create a safe and accepting environment where photographers of all levels who are affected by mental health issues can display their work, as well as inspire one another to keep going and keep creating, despite the dark or scary places in which they may find themselves.”
“You are invited to create art for the site or come visit whenever you may be feeling low, hopeless, or just need something positive on which to focus. You will see, and show others, that you are not alone, no matter how you feel. If you have a mental health issue yourself, or have friends or family who do, then you qualify to be a contributor. You may also contribute if you are someone who helps other people who may be struggling, such as a volunteer, humanitarian, or mental health professional. See the submission tab for details.”

Reflection on a Glial Cell

“Now this is not a science journal; I am fully aware that I am writing this for a general audience. My point is that we too often and too loosely invoke false oppositions like theory/discourse vs. art history vs. formal artifact as if these were separable compartments. The brain — like consciousness and hence like experience and creative endeavor itself — turns out to be very rhizomic, frisky, unruly and naturally cross-pollinated terrain, where language and perception about art through time, plus the ideas that have accumulated as language and truth bleed freely between each other. – See more at:”http://www.visualartsource.com/index.php?
Artist used to fight climate change. (Cape Farewell Aligns Art and Climate Change.) Hot gases in East Anglia cause a global warming type of climate change and could be related to methane in Denmark, says B.A.E. spokesperson. Artists for a little bit of attention and a faint whiff of money make an ideal climate change combatant, but the work is dangerous. Last year a boat load of artists struck a new and uncharted ice field and sank in the Antarctic, it’s rumoured here.
“Antarctic sea ice has grown to a record large extent for a second straight year, baffling scientists seeking to understand why this ice is expanding rather than shrinking in a warming world.” Can we assume that artists are baffled as well?
From: “Big Art Emporium” we think.
