OLDEST FOSSIL ON EARTH...


{Scientists have found what they think is the oldest fossil on Earth, a remnant of life from 3.7 billion years ago when Earth’s skies were orange and its oceans green.


The discovery shows life may have formed quicker and easier than once thought, about half a billion years after Earth formed . And that may also give hope for life forming elsewhere, such as Mars, said study co-author Martin VanKranendonk of the University of New South Wales and director of the Australian Center for Astrobiology.} AP

UNIQA Art Lodz in Poland


 {Polish artist LUMP just unveiled six public art installations in Lodz, Poland which are based on advertising columns along Piotrkowska Street the longest street in Europe. The columns were transformed into giant, symbolical items – icons related to Polish People’s Republic (1952-1989).


The installations are:
1. An electronic coffee machine that was very popular in Poland in the 80’s.
2. A vacuum flask that was very popular in Poland in the 80’s.
3. A pepper shaker that was popular in Poland in the 80’s.
4. A jug that was very popular in Poland in the 80’s.
5. Famous washing machine called “Frania” – electronic rotary washer that was very popular in Poland in the ’80.
6. A soda siphon (also known as the seltzer bottle) – a metal device for dispensing carbonated or soda water in home conditions. Apart from the device and drinking water, special cartridges filled with compressed carbon dioxide were necessary. Siphons had different shapes and colors and cartridges were bought in cartons. Soda siphons were very practical devices in every home. In the 70’s and 80’s they were extremely popular, today are almost completely forgotten.


The installations of LUMP are the first part of international, public art project UNIQA Art Lodz directed by Michał Bieżyński.} READ MORE HERE

GET UP STAY UP: ROA


{At a very young age Roa remembers wanting to be an archaeologist or something adventurous and collecting little skulls from birds and rodents to draw at home. He grew up in the eighties and naturally was inspired by the American life; music, skating and so forth. The love for music, more in particular hip-hop, quickly joined his curiosity in graffiti. Like most muralists, he began by spraying throw-ups under bridges and walls. During his early years, Roa expressed an active, eclectic mix of styles. At the time, there was not prevailing movement in Belgium. As time went on, the scene’s evolution further evolved as foreign visitors left behind an assorted collection of talents and skills. Slowly but sure Roa became addicted to the nature of urban art.} READ MORE HERE
