"Presently, soothsaying - hardly a crime if proven false - Archive calls predictions a second too late"


Gravity-Defying Land Art by Cornelia Konrads

German artist  creates mind-bending site-specific installations in public spaces, sculpture parks and private gardens around the world. Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view.

The Pig Preserve in Tenessee, United States attempts to give back to pigs the natural environment they deserve, This sanctuary takes more of a “hands-off” approach and allows hundreds of pigs to roam the 100 acres of land and forest freely. 

It is magical and refreshing to see these creatures in such greenery, next to trees, and with so much free space.

This is the way every pig deserves to live.

Support pigs and their freedom by adopting a vegan lifestyle.

I really need this to be my life one day.

I would give almost anything for a lack of responsibilities today. I would give it all for a chance at being wild and free.
