❝ Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.

Fabian Oefner is bringing art and science together. In this eye-catching series of clips, Oefner makes sound waves visible by placing colorful crystals over a speaker and filming their movement. The result is poetic and more than a little trippy.

Watch his talk and see more beautiful scientific experiments here»

Nothing ever ends poetically. It ends and we turn it into poetry. All that blood was never once beautiful. It was just red.

shakespeare’s dating tips:

  • use romantic metaphors and beautiful rhymes on your girl until she’s yours
  • dress up as a guy, befriend your man and ask him what he thinks about you
  • kill her cousin, then yourself (because you love her so much)
  • don’t be mean to your girl or she might drown herself in a river. be nice

One of the most important things we can take away from Shakespeare’s corpus is that if you don’t want things to end in a pile of bodies, dress in drag, NOW.

Salvador Dali ~ “Galatea of the Spheres”, 1952

The Galatea of the Spheres is a marvelous portrait of Salvador Dali’s wife known as Gala. Gala was born Elena Ivanovna Diakonova (7 September 1894 – 10 June 1982) in Russia, to a family of intellectuals. Dali first met Gala in 1929 while working on the film Un Chien Andalou with Luis Bunuel- Gala was the wife of another Surrealist, Paul Eluard. Salvador Dali seduced Gala away from Eluard. In 1934 Dali and Gala were married in a civil ceremony in Paris and in 1958 the church permitted a Catholic ceremony (Gala’s former husband died in 1952) and forever after she became known as Gala Éluard Dalí. Gala managed Dali’s business affairs for their entire marriage a task to which the artist was unsuited. Salvador Dali considered Gala his world and his saviour and signed many of his works with her name. <source>
