Literature versus Traffic by Spanish art collective Luzinterruptus.
An installation of 10,000 LED-lit books at Federation Square in Melbourne, Australia for The Light In Winter festival.
The books, recently retired from area public libraries, were given a second life as a glowing river that flowed through the square and into a nearby street. On the final day of the installation, onlookers were invited to take the books home.

All otters are from The Daily Otter, for all your ottery Tumblr needs!

I can imagine a hundred Sherlocks.

EDIT: So this post seems to have been retweeted by Nick Frost. Hello to anyone coming from Twitter! Now, I love you all to bits, but do you think you could perhaps reblog the original? This is just a reblog, after all, and credit for noticing Mr Cumberbatch’s uncanny resemblance to marine mammals should go to Redscharlach, who deserves them and the related follows a lot more! Ta!

“What it means to be human is to bring up your children in safety, educate them, keep them healthy, teach them how to care for themselves and others, allow them to develop in their own way among adults who are sane and responsible, who know the value of the world and not its economic potential. It means art, it means time, it means all the invisibles never counted by the GDP and the census figures. It means knowing that life has an inside as well as an outside.” ― Jeanette Winterson, The Stone Gods

Sweet outfit! Where’d you get it?

There are so many ways that have been dreamt up to entertain us away from the moment, soften its hard edge, deaden it so we don’t have to feel the full impact of the pain that arises when we cannot manipulate the situation to make us come out looking fine.
