Giant driftwood on the beach at La Push, Washington (2010)
this made me feel really uneasy, the ocean is terrifying.
its like when cats bring home a dead bird and drop it at your feet except the ocean is like I HAVE BROUGHT YOU THIS ENORMOUS TREE FROM THE DEPTHS OF HELL ENJOY
This urn will turn you into a tree after you die
You can choose what kind of tree you want to become
Idk I just find this beautiful
just imagine cemeteries looking like this
a forest of living, changing, beautiful trees. I think a tombstone holds much more finality in death than a tree. It’s like you are living on symbolically through something greater than yourself.
I would like to be a redwood, please.
Bartholomäus Traubeck rigged up a PlayStation eye camera on a modified phonograph arm, and then pointed it at “records” made of thin cross-sections of trees. A computer then converts the thickness, color and particular shape into a piano tone. The most interesting part is when the eye encounters an imperfection, and the music bridges on chaos before returning to the more orderly ring patterns.
A truly awesome blend of nature, science and music.
It’s so beautiful and eerie, like an old lost language.
