twists and turns.

Standard

 i love that someone has created a poster

with some of our more interesting twists and turns

 and wonder about the mindset

of the road planning engineers.

were they perhaps going for

 more of an ‘artsy’ and unexpected approach to the roads?

more like the road of life?

“life is full of surprises and serendipity. being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. if you try to plan every step, you may miss these wonderful twists and turns. just find your next adventure – do it well, enjoy it, and then, not now, think about what comes next.”

-Condoleezza Rice – Former U.S. Secretary of State

 Every fall in Osijek, Croatia – Nikola Faller, academic sculptor and Osijek land artist, creates this magic.

Her drawings are made by raking leaves.

“every photographed object is merely the trace left behind by the disappearance of all the rest.

it is an almost perfect crime,

and almost total resolution of the world,

which merely leave the illusion of a particular object shining forth,

the image of which then becomes an impenetrable enigma.”

-jean baudrillard
