When I first started doing moku hanga (Japanese method woodblock) I was always looking on the internet for moku hanga artists. Lately I don’t search as much, but I was excited yesterday to find a few works by Japanese woodblock artist Natsuko Katahira.

Top to bottom (Titles are my own translations, so possibly inaccurate):   

    Dozed Tree
    Forgotten Until Yesterday
    Loop
    Near Kanata

In surreal news, a Japanese artist launched a Bonsai Tree and a bouquet of flowers into space. Take a look at the incredible, extraterrestrial images

Trevor Paglen - They Watch the Moon (2010)

"This photograph depicts a classified ‘listening station’ deep in the forests of West Virginia.

The station is located at the center of the National Radio Quiet Zone, a region of approximately 34,000 square kilometers in West Virginia and parts of Maryland.

Within the Quiet Zone, radio transmissions are severely restricted: omnidirectional and high-powered transmissions (such as wireless internet devices and FM radio stations) are not permitted.

The listening station, which forms part of the global ECHELON system, was designed in part to take advantage of a phenomenon called moonbounce.

Moonbounce involves capturing communications and telemetry signals from around the world as they escape into space, hit the moon, and are reflected back towards Earth.

The photograph is a long exposure under the full moon light.”

fuck yeah Trevor Paglen dot everything

Teaching myself how to make a white line print this weekend. So far I like it. If I had carved separate blocks for this (as in moku hanga) it would have taken me 2-3 days. This took two hours.
