Gina sent in this link to the work of Chris Jordan, an American artist whose series “Running the Numbers”, in his own words,

visually examines these vast and bizarre measures of our society, in large intricately detailed prints assembled from thousands of smaller photographs. Employing themes such as the near versus the far, and the one versus the many, I hope to raise some questions about the role of the individual in a society that is increasingly enormous, incomprehensible, and overwhelming.

It’s giddying stuff alright, check it out.

This is Lily, the lamb who was rescued from the Copley commons. She spent her first few weeks at the Space Station being (s)mothered by our puppy Genie and now she’s looking pretty happy with her new friend Spud at Maynard’s Well. It’s good to have a best friend. This photo comes from Morgaine.

ps This is a picture of Lily before she found her new best friend!

As you’ve all probably experienced, communicating online often leaves a little bit too much to intepretation of the reader when it comes to *emotional* tone. So love them or hate them, you might want to familiarise yourselves with the world of smileys. Feel free to experiment in this thread! 😎

The fact that we live at the bottom of a deep gravity well, on the surface of a gas covered planet going around a nuclear fireball 90 million miles away and think this to be normal is obviously some indication of how skewed our perspective tends to be.

No more than a shower so far but enough to make a garden blush.
