The artist is by necessity a collector.

“The artist is by necessity a collector; he accumulates things with the same ardor and curiosity [with which] a boy stuffs his pockets. He borrows from the sea and from the scrap heap; he takes snapshots, makes mental notes, and records impressions on tablecloths and newspapers—why one particular thing and not another, he may not know at the time, but he is omnivorous. He has a taste for children’s wall scrawling as appreciative as that for prehistoric cave painting.”—Paul Rand, 1955, via Steven Heller

yay! yes your work is beautiful my dear-it deserves recognition! i love it!

And at once I knew I was not magnificent.

my work playlist is pretty saturated with bon iver as it is, but the track ‘holocene’ off of his newest, self-titled album just destroys it for me. now that there’s a video out for the song, my desire to move to a small fishing village in some nordic country has become even more pressing.

feast your ears and eyes, babes:
