Ah! So trippy! I love this…it reminds me of this GREAT class I took. The most important fact I learned in this class:: In our field of vision we have two blind spots. The brain fills these spaces in with what it “thinks” should be there. So, this begs the question, What else in our experience is our brain filling in? What is real? What is perceived? **kerpow!** Ah this class blew my mind wide open! 
50-2403 Self Identity and the Mind-Brain Question
A study in the interrelationship between the workings of the brain and the life of the mind; the incredible experience of neurology transforming into a mental happening. Particular attention will be placed on two questions. Is self a spirit, a computer, a material quality of reflective consciousness? Are people by nature determined to be selfish? These considerations will be placed in the context of the possibilities of the future for the human species.

What is this? A center for ants?!

Today the Department of Teeny-weeny Wonders is delighted to share Postcards for Ants, an awesome ongoing project by Cape Town, South Africa-based artist Lorraine Loots. Every day Loot creates one exquisitely detailed and utterly itty-bitty painting. The project began on January 1, 2013 as a personal 365-day challenge, which means she’d created hundreds of these amazing miniature works of art.

When Cape Town was designated as the World Design Capital 2014, Loot decided to do a second year of tiny paintings, 365 Postcards for Ants, this time using her home city as the theme for each piece. Although each original painting has already been spoken for, Loot creates 5 prints of each day’s painting, which can be ordered through the project website.

To view more of Postcards for Ants visit Lorraine Loots’s website or follow her on Instagram, Facebook or right here on Tumblr at paintingsforants.
