“Cigarette Ash Landscape” an incredible installation by Yang Yongliang. Black and white photographs were cut out and collaged together to create the image of a cigarette dropping ashes into a field of flowers.

    I’ve been cynical about the direction sculpture and art installations have taken. This work has restored my faith in art,and made me smile. Brilliance.

    its art like this that really inspires me, not to mention it immediately brought to mind “tiny cities made of ashes” by modest mouse, which makes me love this installation even more.

    This installations has popped up on a couple blogs and I have been captivated each time I see it by the amount of work that must have went into making the ash city. Such a cool piece. I really like it.

Music Video: Rapper Dumbfoundead’s Hilarious Response to Hollywood ‘Whitewashing’


Hollywood whitewashing has been in the news a lot lately. One catalyst being the announcement earlier this year that Scarlett Johansson landed a lead role in the remake of Ghost in the Shell, and many wondering why it couldn’t have gone to someone of Asian descent. Korean rapper Dumbfoundead (Jonathan Park) offers up a humorous response, adding himself into a montage of blockbuster films and popular television shows, playing everyone from John Snow to Danny Tanner.

Park told to NBC News that he “wanted to flip the script on the conversation everybody was having about the whitewashing of Hollywood and ‘yellow-wash’ some of the most iconic films starring white male leads.”

This is definitely one of my favourite music videos this year! Watch Dumbfoundead’s “Safe” on Booooooom TV.
