Feeling lucky? Well, these fashion jewelry will make you feel just that and just in time for St. Patrick’s Day!
Gil Blank photographs fireworks at municipal displays, where he “can record single bursts being detonated at a time.” He then isolates the explosion, replaces the night sky with a flat black background, and surrounds the image with a wide white border, “like a specimen on a slide.” Sometimes he combines bursts from different places and different nights into a single image. “The images are perfectly factual—the explosions did in fact happen—but not necessarily the way you see them,” he writes. “The compounding and suturing process of which is, in any event, much more akin to memory anyway. You weren’t there—you didn’t see these particular fireworks—but none of that matters, because the subject is still immediately identifiable in that generically yearning way as a plausible placeholder for those non-existent memories.” Blank’s work is currently included in a group exhibition Endless Bummer / Surf Elsewhere at Blum and Poe, Los Angeles.

“As we settle in, he pulls my head down to use his arm as a pillow; the other rests protectively over me even when he goes to sleep. No one has held me like this is in such a long time. Since my father died and I stopped trusting my other, no one else’s arms have made me feel this safe.”
cant believe the hunger games really described what i am looking for from someone… still looking… i mean who doesn’t long for somebody that could make you feel like that?
