2. Crystal – fear: Riding a bike down a waterfall.

3. Morgan C – fear: Badly relapsing with dermatillomania.

All three of you will have emails from Hannah shortly!

PS – The winners were picked using random.org to generate three numbers, it had nothing to do with how good crazy your “worst fears” were but I enjoyed reading them!

  • ps – if you go back to read all the entries and you can’t find yours it’s because there were just too many and the page was loading too slowly, once i figure out how to make multiple pages of comments ill do that!

    also, a few complained about receiving emails after other people responded to the post – you can EASILY unsubscribe from these notifications! In any email that you receive just click that link after “if you don’t want to receive these emails…”

    this problem is also avoided if you remember to uncheck the box that says “notify me when people respond” when you are leaving a comment!!!

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
