I like it better already.
Anthropomorphic art is one of our favourite things, so even though we’ve featured her work a few times already, we still can’t get enough of Nouar’s delightfully disturbing paintings.
"Born in Tehran, amidst the 1980s political suffering and strife, Nouar’s family fled to Germany and then the US, where she resides today. Her oil and acrylic paintings touch on vintage commercial Americana with a sinister twist – but without being too cynical. Instead, each dollop of cream or slice of pie provokes a more tempting side of advertising, where the taste of nostalgia and its childlike promises are the main indulgence.”

this makes me hungry.
So creepy that I like it.
The Catalan Modernist architect Antoni Gaudi proposed a castle-like structure of conical towers rising some 1,100 feet into the sky for New York back in the very early 20th C.
It was envisioned as a downtown playhouse for the wealthy and elite, with lavishly appointed guest rooms, six floors of restaurants, a large theater and lecture hall, multiple galleries, and a 390-foot-tall exhibition space. A star-shaped sphere would top the tower, giving 30 people at a time unobstructed views of the city. Had it been built, it would have been the tallest building in the country.
This would have been awesome!
