My name is Emma I'm studying Veterinary Medicine with a minor in Chemistry. Don't be afraid to ask me anything.
Stop thinking about art works as objects, and start thinking about them as triggers for experiences.

“‘Ages ago someone told me how, in Victorian times, there were canary clouds over the Atlantic,’ Walker says, referring to the days when a taste for exotic birds meant that clippers sailed back from Africa loaded with cages. Halfway home, they would release the birds, which would soar over the sea, until, too tiny to reach land, they would drop back down to the ship and a life of captivity.
Walker was determined to capture this on film. ‘It was the toughest scene,’ he says. ‘We could afford only 300 canaries, and at the end, the animal wrangler retrieved 287. He put down nuts and seeds and five more appeared, then another seven. By the time the last one came down, it was dusty brown from being up in the rafters.’” -Via
It is hard to believe looking at this picture, but Appuldurcombe House on the Isle of Wight in England has a whole darker side hidden behind this glamorous facade. See the notes below the image for further details and links to reveal its secrets.

For those too lazy to click the link:
“Whilst this fabulous facade gives one the impression that this is a magnificent mansion, this is in fact simply a deceptive mask, for behind this polished face you will find the dank & dingy skeletal remains of a once great house.
Just don’t watch it alone!”
