Aki Inomata - 0100101, 2008-09“An aquarium hangs from the ceiling. I light the aquarium with the light of a mercury lamp, and shine the shadows of the ripples in the water onto a white floor. In this way one has the impression that the floor is covered in water around twenty centimeters deep. Visitors can dip their feet into this imaginary water. Water drips into the aquarium from a device above it. Sometimes the drops fall randomly like raindrops. Sometimes they fall around and around, like pla...

Hello my name is Dominic Holmes from Long Beach, Ca. I am 20 years old, and i have been doing photography for about a year & a half so far. My style is like my music taste, which is all over the place haha. Mainly whatever intrigues me I just capture it. whatever vision gets sculpted into my mind, I try to bring that vision into reality. This is my main blog, but my photography blog (recently created) will be where my work will go for now: http://culture-is-vital.tumblr.com/

#ProvenancePeek: Shark Attack! Every art object has a story—not only of how it was made, but of how it changed hands over time until it found its current home. That story is provenance. This dynamic painting of a 1749 shark attack in Havana, Cuba, by John Singleton Copley was too good to paint only once. The original hangs at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. A second full-sized version of the painting, which Copley created for himself, was inherited by his son and eventually gif...
