Hyperallergic is all over this - head over to the link above for updates.

This is crazy and maybe even quite important. Should be interesting to see how it unfolds!

Judy Rifka, Paper Dream 2011

Found a whole series of these today. Pretty into them, though I sort of wish they were, like, HUGE installations instead of manipulated photos.

This is on the cieling in the dining room of Kronberg Castle, or Elsinore.

Hamlet would have eaten dinner with this over his head.

Photographs/Design by Richard Avedon

When I was a kid I spent a lot of time with my brother and my two cousins, we were all pretty close in age, and we all lived on farms, so often we were eachothers only friends. We liked to play “Beatles” where we pretended to be the Beatles. I was John because I was the oldest, and the unofficial leader, but back then we all wanted to be Ringo…probably because he had the best name? and once we saw him play solo. George got pawned off on the youngest cousin because nobody wanted to be George back then. Today I think most of us would have wanted to be George.
