A lesson to learn from Zaha Hadid. Spend a long enough career drawing fluid curvy lines and transforming them into fluid curvy buildings, and you’ll eventually come to a stage where you’ve done all you can do with fluid curvy lines and the only thing you have left to throw together is an architectural replica of female genitalia. It’s a stadium inspired by the shipping dhow, you’ll say ostensibly, and people will believe it. Not.

i don’t know why it took me an hour to figure this out; i grew up with the monsoon and the monsoon is the enemy of technology.

So it’s true what they say about the new iPhone(s). The S in 5S stands for Same, the C in 5C stands for Cheap. We see what you did there, Apple.
Q:Hi. It's nice to see that someone still actually cares about Nuristani art, but I just thought I'd let you know that Nuristani art isn't Islamic art (given your "Islamic art-tag"). If anything, it's kind of the opposite. Nuristanis practiced their ancient religion until the 70's, and their art was not inspired by outsiders (for example Muslims) because of their isolated location. So, "Afghan art", "Nuristani art" and "Asian art" would be okay.
I appreciate your clarification, thank you :) I only tagged it as Islamic art by the virtue of everything else that’s on my blog, so I will specify it now. I saw an exhibit by the Turquoise Mountain School (http://www.turquoisemountainarts.org) and as part of that exhibit, I had the amazing opportunity to learnt some woodcarving. Truly one of the most beautiful craft traditions in Asia!
i think i’m ready to talk to my tumblr now and not just throw scraps of my Instagram feed on it.
