Swimming in a glowing, underwater sea of jellyfish would be a really beautiful experience. But, with limited access to the deep sea, this interactive installation by artist Takahiro Matsuo could be considered a backup to that kind of actual encounter. The dark blue room, a reminder of the oceanic abyss, is a seamlessly flowing design in which viewers can appreciate the beauty of these fascinating creatures without having to actually run the risk of a jellyfish sting.
The Japanese artist worked in collaboration with architect Akihisa Hirata to define this unique, 3D spatial experience where exploration through light, projections, architecture, and human interactions is strongly encouraged. As visitors approach the walls, move around, and walk away, the number and frequency of jellyfish increases and decreases. The organic forms and the glowing palette of blues create a surreal, underwater world where playful movements and interactions with architectural space result in an unspoken communication between artist and participant. One reviewer states, “Thanks to the specific architecture of the space, it is an unexpected experience similar to swimming amongst a coral reef.”
Abso-flippin-lutely gorgeous use of color. And everything, really.
There are two people you’ll meet in your life. One will run a finger down the index of who you are and jump straight to the parts of you that peak their interest. The other will take his or her time reading through every one of your chapters and maybe fold corners of you that inspired them most. You will meet these two people; it is a given. It is the third that you’ll never see coming. That one person who not only finishes your sentences, but keeps the book.
Do you have stars
in your mouth?
and I laugh,
she’s never tasted
winter like I have,
midnights that linger
for days. Yes,
I tell her. Come see.
Will there be breath?
For a while, I whisper
and blow on her hands,
but you will sing
and the aurora lights
will walk across the ice.
She lets me
put my hands on her.
Will I die? her hair
Yes. I tell her.

#OMG It happened after The Angels Take Manhattan for her #CRYING
But… but but but - didn’t she tell the Doctor in The Angels Take Manhattan that she had been pardoned since someone (him) had been “erasing all records of the doctor” and so she hadn’t killed anyone?
haha, one of my favorite lines from that episode. I especially appreciate Rory’s response, it’s as if he’s saying, “Well, yes, there is that…” The Doctor apparently is not that far off in his guess.
