Princeton 2011 Art of Science competition. “For this image, two artificial fish fins are placed side-by-side and flapped in-phase with each another as water flows past the fins (flow direction is up). Small hydrogen bubbles (the white part of the image) allow for the wake of the fins to be visualized. The interaction of the fins creates two repeating patterns of swirling vortices known as vortex streets.”

Grant Ellis: Bless Your HeartBorn on the banks of the Mississippi River, in a small Delta town, Grant Ellis returns to his roots to capture an honest portrait of his home.Identifying as one of the poorest states in the USA, a picture of poverty is predominantly associated with the Mississippi Delta. What isn’t immediately associated is the wider narrative of its inhabitants; their times of joy and despair, adventure and excitement, all moments held dear in Grant’s memory. With ‘Bless Your Heart’...

tinktastichana: There is a vitality, a life force, an energy, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and because there is only one of you in all of time, this expression is unique. And if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium and it will be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is nor how valuable nor how it compares with other expressions. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the c...

hirshhorn: Happy Birthday to #ArshileGorky, born #OTD 1904. Gorky often combined sensual drawing and color applied in either rich, opaque layers or thin, transparent washes. “Soft Night” (1947) is distinguished by sinuous lines, a thin layer of paint with bright color accents, and the biomorphic, bonelike forms that were his personal symbol and motif. Many of Gorky’s paintings from the 1940s are vibrantly colored; “Soft Night” is rare in its use of velvety grays which, like its title, create...

nonalimmen: ‘Metamorphosis’ “She murmured a few words in an old, ancient tongue that only she and the animals understood. The forest critters answered. Like a moth to a flame serpents of all kinds gathered around her, caressing her pale body with their scaly coal coloured skin. She collapsed on the ground and started shaking. She nodded her head rapidly, her oily blonde hair bounced like pieces of rope. Her eyes turned dark and the snakes covering her bottom torso connected into a single mass....
