When Croatian artists Olinka Vistina and Drazen Grubisic separated, their reluctance to part with the sentimental reminders of their fizzled love inspired them to open the Museum of Broken Relationships, so that the items could remain together.

Muller Van Severen Trivets

I have never liked coasters trivets, until I saw these by Muller Van Severen. These coasters are like sculptures that adapt to a functional role and change in configuration and appearance with use. YES!

Batsheva Dance Company

I just got back from enjoying a performance by the Batsheva Dance Company. What a beautiful experience!

I know absolutely *nothing* about contemporary dance and was sitting there with eyes wide open. I was intrigued. I was surprised. I was thrown off. So many feels. The above video is by the same ensemble but not what they performed tonight. If you have a chance to see them, please do.
