daily drifter: the accolades

daily drifterAlly R.Comment
— Lemony Snicket

In matters of meritocracy, sometimes we haven't the faintest idea what is going on. We humbly oblige some more moderate version of ourselves to demonstrate how to behave in modern society, yet our current society is full of upheaval and a future that has yet to be determined. We call them the accolades, these momentary glimpses of privilege and centrifugal forces that we often take for granted.  Some call it divination or intervention. We walk blindly or swim into their seas, letting the current and the windswept sand direct us where we're meant to go and where we belonged all along.

DAILY DRIFTER: Into the Woods

Ally R.Comment

When I think of the woods, I think of sprawling forests of old growth trees, the craggy mountains of my childhood, and long walks with no destination in particular. I've always lived in cities, so it has often been a daydream of mine to venture to parts unknown. Camping with my Dad before he passed was a particularly fond memory for me. 

What images does your mind conjure up when you think of the great outdoors? Here's some little sparks of inspiration from our flickr group. Please check out these amazing artists by clicking on their names to go to their respective pages. Thank you!

DAILY DRIFTER: Minimal Surrealism

Ally R.Comment

Mirages in the Sahara. Solid-voids. Cemeteries and canals. 

Get it? I'm being ironically minimal. 

All kidding aside, the following are some gorgeous examples of minimal surrealism in form. 

These are some profound ways to express minimalism and surrealism combined. Sometimes they are haunting, eluding, and intoxicating. Oftentimes they are pure magic.
