Kurt Vonnegut Turns Cinderella Into An Equation RT by Chase Alias

Man is a pattern-finding animal. There are folks who look at a scene like this...
And what they see...is this...
Or so I'm told. I'm not one of their tribe, but scientists and mathematicians, I imagine, do this compulsively. They can't help themselves. They are pattern addicts. They can't stop finding the abstract in the particular.
All of us, even if we have no knack for science, look at the weather, at our children, at our markets, at the sky, and we see rhythms and patterns that seem to repeat, that give us the ability to predict. "Billy's a good kid, he'll be fine," thinks the teacher. "Take this and you'll feel better," says the doctor. Pattern recognition.
Do any of us live beyond pattern? Do great musicians, breakthrough artists, great athletes operate pattern free? Pattern indifferent?
I don't think so. Artists may be, oddly, the most pattern-aware. Case in point: The totally unpredictable, one-of-a-kind novelist Kurt Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse-Five, Cat's Cradle, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater) once gave a lecture in which he presented — in graphic form — the basic plots of all the world's great stories. Every story you've ever heard, he said, are reflections of a few, classic story shapes. They are so elementary, he said, he could draw them on an X/Y axis.
Which he then did. Here are three of them. I think you'll recognize the third one rather quickly.

Thanks to Hokumberg Goombah and Gig Thurmond for noticing this; and to Abstruse Goose, a web-based comic strip drawn by I'm not sure who (the author signs his name *******) for our bunny-eats-a-carrot illustrations. The great Kurt Vonnegut died in 2007; this lecture appears on You Tube.

Become a Tree when you Pass Away

This Awesome Urn Will Turn You into a Tree After You Die



You don't find many designers working in the funeral business thinking about more creative ways for you to leave this world (and maybe they should be). However, Spanish designer Martin Azua has combined the romantic notion of life after death with an eco solution to the dirty business of the actual, you know, transition.

His Bios Urn is a biodegradable urn made from coconut shell, compacted peat and cellulose and inside it contains the seed of a tree. Once your remains have been placed into the urn, it can be planted and then the seed germinates and begins to grow. You even have the choice to pick the type of plant you would like to become, depending on what kind of planting space you prefer.

Laura York Portrait of Self as Reviewed by Chase Alias


First Week is a nice new series by young artist Laura York. She has a keen eye for color and composition. More importantly her concepts come across nicely through her use of self expression. She has my vote for "In"Flickr.

I'm attempting to do the 52week self portrait project. Started it the first week of summer.

Also this is kinda for this props self portrait challenge on DPS. Prop is mainly my ring, just bought it and love it!

LucasAeon Self Portrait as Reviewed by Chase Alias

The mood conveyed in this picture is obviously morose, but the story behind it is left to your imagination



This is a re-upload. I came across the original file so I decided to upload it again since its first upload to flickr was too compressed. This self-portrait is a little over 2 years old, but still one of my favorite photos of me (probably because I hardly ever photograph myself or allow anyone else to lol).



This is my first photo to ever make explore, so thank you all for your comments, views, and favorites! :)

Bug-Chaser, series "Chase Alias' Manhunt, 2010"

David S Pollack's newest release from his series called

"Chase Alias' Manhunt" 2010 is shocking and very real. See how this New York based conceptual artist deals with everyday life as different characters created using classic method acting techniques such as emotional recall.
