you have no idea how much strange joy this video just brought me
oh my god
i’m so happy watching this
Dancing as drawing, drawing as dancing
Still pondering the relationship between movement and thought. Ideas flow in both directions from the head to the hands…and from the hands to the head.
EMPTIED GESTURES BY HEATHER HANSEN
LA, New Orleans-based Artist Heather Hansen (tumblr) - "Emptying Gestures is an experiment in kinetic drawing. In this series, I am searching for ways to download my movement directly onto paper, emptying gestures from one form to another and creating something new in the process."

Does moving equal thinking?
Is it possible that we move as a way of forming thoughts - rather than moving as a result of thinking? Isn’t this what we’re doing when we gesture? And sometimes when we dance and draw?
Dennis Oppenheim - Two-stage Transfer Drawing (1971)
"As I run a marker along Eric’s back he attempts to duplicate the movement on the wall. My activity stimulates a kinetic response from his sensory system. I am, therefore, drawing through him"
I hear the original mix on Pandora more often than this cool mix on Soundcloud. Every time the lyric starts, I think of this image.
You know when somebody answers a question, but they don’t quite really answer it? And then they go and overexplain their non-answer as though you don’t know the definition of most of the words that are part of it?
There has got to be a word for that.
The detailed distraction. The accurate but irrelevant anecdote.
the learned pigg and myself found 15 clear glass panels from a dumpster in Denver, painted them and returned them to their original location in the shape of a flower.
So it’s not logical right? Why would you do something like this with a thing that’s going to be thrown away? Sometime there are things you are compelled to do for the sake of expression, and I always think it’s cool when I see other people post evidence of them.
This week last year we shared the Webby-winning Mister Rogers “Garden of your Mind” remix, and today, as a thank you for being fans of PBS Digital Studios, we are releasing its B-side from our incredibly talented friend, John Boswell.
It’s called “Sing Together.” Click here to watch, enjoy and SHARE!
WHY IS MY FACE RAINING!
I want to say so many things about Mr. Rogers right now, but this video says it all better than I ever could.
This. This is awesome.

I could reblog/post this every day as a constant reminder.
