Creative Jaunt

Anila Quayayum Agha is a photograph with a big shadow. And a big dream. Agha is an artist with a political bent and looks for “truth” in her artwork.

Then she illuminated the inside of the cube, allowing it to through 35-foot shadows. “This project is meant to uncover the contradictory nature of all intersections; which are simultaneously boundaries and also points of meeting,” Agha explains.

Google Earth is both an encyclopedia and a great way to get a view from on top that we would never otherwise notice. There are 49 more amazing sites here, each one with a GPS location. You can cut and paste the numbers into Google Earth, and you’ll see the same wonders and weirdnesses in the world.

Have a creative weekend!

Quinn McDonald is packing to film a DVD. She’s not worried about what to wear, but she is amassing what projects to show.

  1. VERY much enjoyed the cube art. It would be wonderful to be in the same room as this piece of artwork. It would give a whole new meaning to “standing in the shadows”.

  2. You often offer travel tips — so I hope you’re recording packing for recording…before which you could have recorded packing for recording for packing for recording! (If so, you should do the recording on an island on a lake on an island on a lake on an island; there’s one in Canada.) <–that would be a comment on a comment, which would make THIS a comment on a comment on a comment.

    Good grief, compared to this, Bell's inequality is a walk in the park.
