Marina Abramovic meets Ulay

“Marina Abramovic and Ulay started an intense love story in the 70s, performing art out of the van they lived in. When they felt the relationship had run its course, they decided to walk the Great Wall of China, each from one end, meeting for one last big hug in the middle and never seeing each other again. at her 2010 MoMa retrospective Marina performed ‘The Artist Is Present’ as part of the show, a minute of silence with each stranger who sat in front of her. Ulay arrived without her knowing it and this is what happened.”

Beautiful!

Beautiful Pipedream of the Day: U.S. High Speed Rail Map

Curb your enthusiasm, this is not an actual map of the U.S. high speed rail, but a concept map designed by Alfred Twu. The artist’s vision for a nationwide high-speed rail system (220 miles-per-hour) would run across the entire country from coast-to-coast and make stops at a number of major cities and metropolitan areas along the way. In harsh reality, however, hopes for jump-starting the national infrastructure project seems to be hanging by a thread at the moment, which is already overdue when compared to other nations in the industrialized world.
