I get inspired by people who enjoy the process. There is something fun and beautiful about making something with your hands. Sometimes we let a lack of resources stop us from enjoying the creative process, but often times, if we actually slow down, we will notice that the tools we need are all around us.
“…a directing team working in film, art, community building, and agriculture …their unorthodox, hands-on working style often includes direct creation in all aspects of production – writing, designing, painting, sculpting, animating, photographing, directing, editing, composition, and scoring.” – Encyclopedia Pictura
“They are passionate about gardening, farming, construction, villages, augmented reality, science visualization, social ecology, technological empowerment, adventure, and country living.” - Encyclopedia Pictura
Sounds like the kind of people we’d like to be friends with!
Number two, “Camping Rafts”, is my personal favorite. There is something very quaint and magical about chilling on the water with a good friend and tasty snacks.
What’s your favorite Fortrait in the series? What about it inspires you?

It’s Monday. We know you’re just getting back into the swing of things after a crazy weekend (or maybe that’s just us?), but is there “more” behind what you do everyday? Day in and day out why do you do what you do? Is there purpose? Is there beauty?
Think about it.
We have crazy friends who start entire ministry’s while they are still in college. Somewhere between the 2am-6am slot they must find time to invest in it because in between class, studying, eating, sleeping and having a life… I don’t know how they fit it all in? But, this is not your average “church”.

It’s not often you see bamboo in Oklahoma, but bamboo is quickly becoming one of the most widely used naturally replenishing resources we have in this world. So why wouldn’t it be a major part of great art installations. Meet the Starns, a couple of amazing artists that have made a name for themselves with bamboo.
“Doug and Mike Starn were born in New Jersey in 1961. Identical twins, they work collaboratively with photography and continue defying categorization, effectively combining traditionally separate disciplines such as sculpture, photography, painting, video, and installation.”
Working even now the Starns have just finished an exhibition of Big Bambú in Venice, Italy. Here are some images of that work, and a link or two to other works of theirs… Enjoy!
This past weekend we packed our bags and headed north on I-35 to a little college town called Stillwater. Since graduating from Oklahoma State I’ve visited often to see friends and to enjoy catching up but I’ve never made time to tour the newest jewel on campus: the Donald W. Reynolds School of Architecture.
