Conceptual Art // Jenny Holzer



“a little knowledge can go a long way
a lot of professionals are crackpots
a man can’t know what it is to be a mother
a name means a lot just by itself
a positive attitude means all the difference in the world
a relaxed man is not necessarily a better man
a sense of timing is the mark of genius
a sincere effort is all you can ask
a single event can have infinitely many interpretations
a solid home base builds a sense of self
a strong sense of duty imprisons you
absolute submission can be a form of freedom
abstraction is a type of decadence
abuse of power comes as no surprise
action causes more trouble than thought
alienation produces eccentrics or revolutionaries
all things are delicately interconnected
ambition is just as dangerous as complacency
ambivalence can ruin your life
an elite is inevitable
anger or hate can be a useful motivating force
animalism is perfectly healthy
any surplus is immoral
anything is a legitimate area of investigation
artificial desires are despoiling the earth
at times inactivity is preferable to mindless functioning
at times your unconsciousness is truer than your conscious mind
automation is deadly
awful punishment awaits really bad people
bad intentions can yield good results
being alone with yourself is increasingly unpopular
being happy is more important than anything else
being judgmental is a sign of life
being sure of yourself means you’re a fool
believing in rebirth is the same as admitting defeat
boredom makes you do crazy things
calm is more conductive to creativity than is anxiety
categorizing fear is calming
change is valuable when the oppressed become tyrants
chasing the new is dangerous to society
children are the most cruel of all
children are the hope of the future
class action is a nice idea with no substance
class structure is as artificial as plastic
confusing yourself is a way to stay honest
crime against property is relatively unimportant
decadence can be an end in itself
decency is a relative thing
dependence can be a meal ticket
description is more important than metaphor
deviants are sacrificed to increase group solidarity
disgust is the appropriate response to most situations
disorganization is a kind of anesthesia
don’t place to much trust in experts
drama often obscures the real issues
dreaming while awake is a frightening contradiction
dying and coming back gives you considerable perspective
dying should be as easy as falling off a log
eating too much is criminal
elaboration is a form of pollution
emotional responses ar as valuable as intellectual responses
enjoy yourself because you can’t change anything anyway
ensure that your life stays in flux
even your family can betray you
every achievement requires a sacrifice
everyone’s work is equally important
everything that’s interesting is new
exceptional people deserve special concessions
expiring for love is beautiful but stupid
expressing anger is necessary
extreme behavior has its basis in pathological psychology
extreme self-consciousness leads to perversion
faithfulness is a social not a biological law
fake or real indifference is a powerful personal weapon
fathers often use too much force
fear is the greatest incapacitator
freedom is a luxury not a necessity
giving free rein to your emotions is an honest way to live
go all out in romance and let the chips fall where they may
going with the flow is soothing but risky
good deeds eventually are rewarded
government is a burden on the people
grass roots agitation is the only hope
guilt and self-laceration are indulgences”

Corbusier’z Cite Radieuse // On Fi’ah

Insane breaking news straight form Marseille…

LeCorbu is burning down…

“Le feu qui s’est déclenché jeudi 9 février dans l’immeuble de la Cité radieuse à Marseille était en passe d’être officiellement éteint, “l’ensemble des foyers” ayant été “éteints”, ont indiqué les marins-pompiers vendredi à 6h30.

“L’ensemble des foyers ont été éteints. On procède aux dernières reconnaissances à l’aide de caméras thermiques avant de prononcer le feu officiellement éteint”, a précisé une porte-parole des marins-pompiers.

Un incendie s’était déclaré dans la nuit de jeudi à vendredi à Marseille dans le célèbre immeuble de la Cité radieuse, créé par Le Corbusier, un sinistre qui a détruit ou endommagé de nombreux appartements et conduit à l’évacuation par précaution de tous les habitants.”

Science // Troll Physics

Science That Makes You Bang Your Head On The Wall

Ever wished to fly to the moon? Ever wished to travel around the world with minimal cost, avoiding airport security? The Troll Scientists are here to give you a solution, or not…
Apparently, Troll Science is what the name suggests. Fake “scientific” ideas to make the world better, which are not true, for the sole purpose to troll people who know their science. Nonetheless, we really wished this science was real.

Urban Scale Wars // uninhabited city of Marnehuizen

Good morning rockstars (lol)

Marnehuizen is a Dutch false and uninhabited city included in the military camp of Marnewaard, near Groningen.

The city provides the army a stage to simulate future urban combats, emergencies and raids, and it consists of a number of streets, some dwellings, a section of railways with a train station, a bank, a supermarket, a warehouse and even a sewers systems. Europe prepares for what is already happening in Athens and what is probably going to happen again in metropolis under siege like London and Paris.
