Crystal Liu

“the moon,” a new series of drawings from crystal liu.

Crystal Liu was the Gold Medal Award winner at Ontario College of Art and Design when she graduated with her BFA in 2003. She completed her MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute in 2005. Her photos hail from cities such as Toronto, San Francisco, Chicago and Glasgow. Landscapes float up into view with a delicate touch more akin to painting than photography. Their vastness and freedom allow viewers to surrender, re-imagine, or re-create them as personal reverie or memory. In the summer of 2005 she joined the Hosfelt Gallery in San Francisco.

Bought an old, used copy of Milan Kundera’s The Unbearable Lightness of Being — it’s inscribed and full of underlined passages; how could anyone get rid of this?

“Everything is blooming most recklessly; if it were voices instead of colors, there would be an unbelievable shrieking into the heart of the night.”

…I know the pics are watermarked, but I’m kind of surprised that viria doesn’t have explicit credit on this post. Viria13 has the most amazing HP artwork and I think that her Tumblr should be linked with credit *somewhere* on this post.

Filming continues on the Divergent sequel Insurgent, and in a new interview with the LA Times, the lead stars discuss what’s different this time around.

Shailene Woodley (Tris) and Theo James (Four) chatted with the Times’ Hero Complex blog and had nice things to say about how the second film in their four-part series feels different from Divergent. In fact, according to Woodley, “everything” is different.
“We’re in Atlanta, it’s summer, it’s not cold, Chicago winter,” she says. “Our director is different, the set design is different, the costumes are different. It feels much bigger. It’s interesting because the movie feels bigger in tone and in image but in a scene it feels smaller. Some scenes feel like we’re doing an indie film in a way because they’re so full of truth.
