We just love these “flaming cactus” instillation’s in Astor place. They were created by the Animus Art Collective and commissioned by the city for the Department of Transportation’s Summer Street. Such a simple idea wrapping Plastic Neon cable ties around lamp posts!
Were huge fan’s of the artist Olek! So we were excited to wake up and find this instillation on our block.
SO. Believe or not ( if we are not similar enough already ) we are actually born within the same week of each other and are the same age. So for the past two years we have thrown joint birthday parties or as we call them BLOW UP! Birthdays!
Last year we spent the night at Winnie’s Karaoke bar singing to a lot of Ace of Base, but this year we decided to do something a little more low key and sweet. We invited some of our closest friends to celebrate with us on my lovely and griddy roof :) We made large summer blankets in bright colors for people to sit and lay on along with decorating with tons of cheery sunflowers.
We BBQ’d a bunch of exotic and weird meats ( rabbit sausage, buffalo burgers, etc ) that we scored from the China Town Meat Market. We also made a huge bin of shrimp and pineapple skewers for people to grab and throw on the grill. Good timezz
My favorite thing to do while visiting Wyoming is driving through Yellowstone. Time after time of visiting, the colors, textures, and open skies still take my breath away. These are some pictures of the many natural textures and colors of the earth with the chemistry of the sulfur hot springs. I especially love the burnt oranges mixes with the deep blue and turquoise. It looks unreal.
