Dripping Imagination

nhel. weird.

A new religious statue in the town of Davidson, N.C., is unlike anything you might see in church.
The statue depicts Jesus as a vagrant sleeping on a park bench. St. Alban’s Episcopal Church installed the homeless Jesus statue on its property in the middle of an upscale neighborhood filled with well-kept townhomes.
Jesus is huddled under a blanket with his face and hands obscured; only the crucifixion wounds on his uncovered feet give him away.
The reaction was immediate. Some loved it; some didn’t.
"One woman from the neighborhood actually called police the first time she drove by," says David Boraks, editor of DavidsonNews.net. "She thought it was an actual homeless person."
That’s right. Somebody called the cops on Jesus.

Karina Smigla-Bobinski,  ‘Ada’, a large helium filled ball covered in charcoal nubs. The piece floats gently in space until interacted with by viewers, who can toss the ball against the walls, creating scratchy drawings on the surface of the gallery space. During the course of the exhibition, the walls  evolve into a dense collection of scribbles.

Death is nothing to us. When we exist, death is not; and when death exists, we are not. All sensation and consciousness ends with death and therefore in death there is neither pleasure nor pain. The fear of death arises from the belief that in death, there is awareness. Epicurus, Greek Philosopher
