Paper installation depicting a frozen moment in time of children dancing around a Maypole. Built out of black paper and foam each piece is very detailed but together from a distance read like silhouettes on a sunny day.

A History of ancient symbols : By Eve Warren
This summer I have been researching ancient symbols and semiotics for a university brief. This symbol is my interpretation of the Native American symbol for dream catcher.
According to Native Americans, dreams that humans have while they sleep, are sent by sacred spirits as messages.  According to their Legend, in the center of the Dream Catcher there is a hole.  Good dreams are permitted to reach the sleeper through this hole in the  web.  As for the bad dreams, the web traps them and they disappear at dawn with the first light. 

i just… what?

A History of ancient symbols : By Eve Warren
This summer I have been researching ancient symbols and semiotics for a university brief. This symbol is my interpretation of the Native American symbol for saddle bag.
Native American symbols are geometric portrayals of celestial bodies, natural phenomena and animal designs. The meaning of the Saddlebag symbol was to the represent the concept of a journey. The term ‘saddlebag’ is incorrectly used as, although the Native American Indians of the Great Plains were accomplished horsemen, they usually rode without saddles. The Indians did, however, use various types of pouches. The two basic styles of American Indian bags were soft pouches, made of tanned animal hides (usually deerskin), and parfleche, made of stiff rawhide. The picture below shows a beautifully decorated Apache Pouch.

um. can you explain to me this concept of ’ the native american symbol’? there are hundreds of tribes— the idea that they would have monolithic, singular  symbols is a little disturbing.

♥ THAT NAOMI CAMPBELL IS BUILDING THIS AMAZING SELF-SUSTAINABLE ECO-HOME!

Naomi Campbell has visionary eyes for the future. The icon has enlisted the Spanish eco-conscious architect Luís de Garrido to design a completely self-sustaining green home on her (and her partner, Vladimir Doronen) private island, Isla Playa de Cleopatra, off the coast of Turkey.

The 25-room, multi-level dome home will be powered by a stream of hundreds of photo-voltaic panels. Water is collected from the rain and is to be recycled as a grey-water system throughout the estate. The home is naturally heated by a greenhouse-like design of nearly all glass panels to allow natural light. Louvers and vents keep the home just as cool from the Mediterranean climate. In keeping with the island’s Kemetic name, several symbols from Ancient Egypt are built into the design.

The home is the iris of the massive Eye of Horus layout of the estate that can be seen from sea or air, with the long ream of solar panels serving as the ‘eyebrow.’ And yes, that is an ankh to the side. An incredible project that will be even more thrilling, once it’s realized.

Tafline Laylin of Inhabitat.com has the scoop, here.

but i gotta wonder… at night, when the lights are on inside… can someone just sit outside and see into the whole house? if so, that’s kinda creepy…
