I received this link from a photographer friend of mine:
It is a large set of before/after satellite overlays of the disaster areas. They are aligned so you can draw a bar across to do precise A-B ing.
I was looking for spoken word stuff about the disaster in Japan and came upon this:
Delphinideaa on Youtube, is an actress who devised a quiz whereby she makes a contribution to aid for Japan, every time someone gets it right … go to Youtube and do the following search:
Poem for Japan (quiz)
She’s rolled her sleeves up, done the self-questioning needed to balance her conscience and soul, and has made her move. I wrote her the following message:
I appreciate how you have organized this quiz, and thank you for the contributions you have committed to make.
Here is the work my friends and I did to mourn and honour the victims of the Haiti Quake, and to salute those who work to assist them:
We are in the early stages of our response to this recent disaster, but we present this as our salute to you who have jumped to it.
I emphasise that I’m NOT hinting that you should buy anything. You are a fellow artist, already doing your bit, and should merely sit awhile and enjoy it.
Meanwhile, I will create a thread at > http://www.steinberg.net/forum/
It will be in a private ‘registered owners’ section’, so sadly you won’t be able to see it.
I will let people know what you are doing, and will invite them to visit you.
I’d originally intended to post the above and have done with it, however, it occurs to me, while we are sorting out musical responses elsewhere, there are other expressions which it may make sense to share here. Surfer’s done a words- and-art response … I’ll contact him and ask if he’s willing for it to be included here. And here’s a welcome to all and any others.
All the best
