ART: Banksy Ends New York Residency With Bubble Letter Balloons

Outisde is where art should live: among us. And rather than street art being a fad, maybe it’s the last thousand years of art history that are the blip, when art came inside, in service of the church and institutions. But art’s rightful place is on the cave walls of our communities, where it can act as a public service, provoke debate, voice concerns, forge identities.

The ancient Egyptians discovered that regular polygons can be increased while still maintaining the ratio of their sides by the addition of a strictly constructed area (which was later named the “gnomon” by the Greeks); the Egyptians assigned the concept of the ratio-retaining expansion of a rectangular area to the god Osiris, who was, therefore, often shown in ancient Egyptian frescoes seated on a square throne (square= kingship again) in which the original square and its L-shaped gnomon are clearly delineated, but the geometrical construction used to create the gnomon is not shown. It is, in fact, the absense of the attendent arcs and extension lines used in the creation of geometric forms that has led art historians and iconographers such a merry chase through history. It often takes the eye of a geomterician to spot the tell-tale signs of construction.

One of the best-known pieces of detective work in this regard was the discovery by Jay Hambidge, an art historian at Yale University during the 1920s, that the spirals on the Ionic column capitals of ancient Greek temples were laid out by the so-called “whirling rectangle” method for creation of a logarithmic spiral. He realized this by examining numerous Ionic capitals in art museums until he located some in which the holes made by the placement of compass points had not been obliterated over time. (One of these capitals was an unfinished, broken piece, dug up from a rubbish heap near a temple — it had apparently been damaged during manufacture and was discarded; its burial preserved it from the elements, and the marks of the geometeric layout were remarkably clear upon it.) No “sacred meaning” for the log spiral form of the Ionic column capital has been determined from Greek writings, but the use of other log spirals in Greek temple architecture (for instance in floor-block proportions and their placement in relation to overall floor area) indicates that Greek architects, unlike the Romans who came after them, deliberately constructed their temples according to “whirling rectangle” geometeric ratios.

Kanye West on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Guys, Kanye has a point.

Kanye knows what he’s talking about. I don’t care what anyone has to say about his “ego.” This man inspires me to love me better. To appreciate myself and believe in myself and to not be afraid to be out there and be ME even if it’s deemed as “weird” by society. 

This belief system is exactly why I don’t follow the “rules” of writing and poetry. This is why I don’t like submitting into magazines with weird rigid guidelines and “tastes” for certain poetry. I’m here to write what comes out of MY beautiful brain the way it does and I refuse to alter it to be a “classic” poet or writer or artist. 

I’m here to do me. This interview changed my life this morning. I’m following my dreams for real. I’m doing what I want for real. I vow to be my authentic self as a person and as an artist and I refuse to hold that back for backwards ass society.
