I can write the saddest poem of all tonight.
I loved her, and sometimes she loved me too.
Pablo Neruda (via funpoolparty)

These sculptures are from Geof Oppenheimer’s series Modern Assemblages, which appeared in the solo gallery show, “Inside us all there is a part that would like to burn down our own house.”

He detonates an explosive inside a cube made of ballistics plastic. This is what’s left behind.

It reminds me of the weird relationship between actual violence and depicted violence.

Like, we see more images of human-against-human violence—in video games, movies, TV, etc.—than anyone ever in the history of this species. (Already today, I’ve seen depictions of several hundred violent human deaths, because I watched a movie called The Expendables.)  

But actual violence is increasingly abstract and distant from even those who perpetrate it: Most war-related deaths these days involve explosives, often detonated by people far away from the detonations themselves. Abstraction has kind of become the only way we can really think about this kind of violence, because we experience it abstractly unless and until the bombs land on us. 

Also, I just think these sculptures are very beautiful, and I like that they were created partly by chance and partly by careful design.

All in all, this is the best use of ballistics plastic I’ve seen since Mythbusters.

A while ago, a 21-year-old Malaysian student, artist, and nerdfighter named Mei began uploading watercolor paintings containing quotations from my books.

I loved them, and Mei was excited about the idea of releasing limited edition runs of some of my favorite of her paintings as DFTBA posters. So we are! All these posters will be signed by me. You can find them at the links below.

You don’t get to choose if you get hurt… (from TFiOS)

and of course People Rain Drizzle Hurricane (from Looking for Alaska)

This was the good news I was gonna tell all of you. I didn’t know John was gonna post them the next day?!?! But yes, This. Is. The. Good. News. You can get these, WHICH ARE SIGNED BY JOHN GREEN (some reason he likes signing things)!!!

Reblogging the artist. (Follow her!)

Just picked up the TFiOS one!

Very excited to have it hanging on my wall!

John Green recently requested quote posters, and here’s my TFIOS themed addition to the bunch.
I designed the glasses and book myself and liked the glasses so much I made a pop art thing with them too.
As my boyfriend pointed out: There is a reader in the word “books” and a book in the word “readers” tee hee.
Anyways, I may be getting this printed for my own wall. We hear you John!

One of the traps of adolescence is the sort of paranoid resentment that somehow you’re never going to match up and that everybody else’s life is going to be better and finer and fuller. That everyone else attended some secret lesson in which how to live was taught and you had a dental appointment that day, or you were somehow not invited.
