Hang the eucalyptus upside down by tying it to your shower head with twine, the steam and warmth will release the beneficial oils.

The benefits of the released oil include; anti-stress; increased mental clarity; mood enhancer; anti-inflammatory; increased respiratory health. Not to mention the luscious, natural scent of eucalyptus!

I’m gonna need dis!

We need this in our shower

Szymon Kaliski’s “Biomimesis: Hyphae”

Polish artist Szymon Kaliski’s video installation “Biomimesis: Hyphae” (2013) is an interactive motion censored video piece, heavily influenced by fungal growth and the relationship between biology and technology. 

The piece includes abstract lines and minimalist shapes as a representation of the fungus and it’s growths. This simulated fungal growth can be ‘maintained’ by standing in front of the screen. The viewer’s movements act as the food which helps the digital life-form stay alive; no movement means the digital life-form before you begins to decay, and even die. It is a piece that puts a heavy responsibility on the audience; they have the power to create or destroy life, symbolic of the impact we have on both technological advancements and natural devastation (and vice versa). 

The artist uses a modified space colonization algorithm from Cinder Library with a combination of a motion tracking program from OpenCV library to create this piece which combines “fungal growth with cold digital aesthetics”. Open source libraries are amazing wells of resources, and allows for artists of various backgrounds to learn new (and important) skills in our digital age.

When I’m in writing mode for a novel, I get up at four AM and work for five to six hours. In the afternoon, I run for 10 km or swim for 1500m (or do both), then I read a bit and listen to some music. I keep to this routine every day without variation. The repetition itself becomes the important thing, I mesmerize myself to reach a deeper state of mind. … Writing is like a survival training. Physical strength is as necessary as artistic sensitivity.

In the 14th century, people were hired in place of family members to mourn at funerals. “Placebo domino in regione vivorum” was the phrase used to mourn, which means, “I shall please the Lord in the land of the living.”
