Mika Aoki  ’ Singing Glass ‘

Japanese artist Mika Aoki embraces the dichotomous nature of glass’s solidity yet fragility. She says of the translucent material: “Unless light shines on it, we can’t confirm the existence of it because it is transparent. But once the light shines on it, glass truly emanates a special presence.” In her series of works titled Singing Glass, the artist presents glass morphed into amoebic and otherworldly forms that leaves the viewer mesmerized. In any other medium, the pieces would lose their intrigue.

Looking through the sculptor’s portfolio, there is a surreal mix of science gone awry and fairy tale-like icy enchantment. In a number of her works, there are glass creatures and abstract figures encased within glass containers, like lab experiments. Because of the dual layers of clear elements, some of the structures within actually look like more like water bubbles. The other pieces that are not trapped within clear encasements, they echo the luminosity and sharp crystallization of ice.

how to lose 3 inches off your waist— super quick, easy, and healthy

Yep, I went from a 31” waist to a 28” waist overnight.  Literally.  Overnight.  All I did was go to bed. 

We are always comparing our worst to the best of others, and we don’t take the time to appreciate our bodies in less than our perception of ideal states. I love when people post photos comparing their morning tummy to their bloated after dinner tummy because this encourages not being ashamed of our tummies in their constant flux & flow.  It’s easy to look at ourselves after a big meal and think we are “fat”, that food has turned us into a whale and we become scared to eat more food. Fuck that. Appreciate the ability of your intestines and stomach to expand as you fill it with nourishment, as it hugs your food and absorbs its nutrients.  Never go to bed hungry.  Eat past 7.  Eat at 2am. Eat whenever you are hungry, and stop when you are satisfied. Trust the intuitive nature of your body and it will treat you like the goddess you are. light & love xx

I like this. Because people gonna really think she lost something quick too and all she did was let her body do what it needs to do.

I’m here for this.

I would like that sometime.  If you want I could bring over a videogame system for something other than cats, conversation, or sitting and stuff.
Sorry, I didn’t get back to you on that yesterday.

Yes! Before the end of the semester we should do that!

Tony being a dork and entering every room just before Bucky does so he can loudly announce that winter is coming

He is a Stark, after all.

The rightful Stark claims the iron throne.
