People, Flowers, and Albus the Cat: A Photo Essay

And then she said I had performed a sort of quintessential act of human appropriation of the nonhuman.

In my never-ending quest to conjure up new forms of procrastination, I posted a status on Facebook last Friday asking if anyone wanted to be a part of a Wesleying feature that was quite simply about two things: (1) people, (2) flowers. The feature would go like this: I would take photos of people being ‘unapologetically happy’ with flowers somewhere in the mix.

The idea gained a lot more traction than I thought it would, so I spent my entire Sunday not doing homework and taking pictures of my friends instead. And, as promised, they’re going up on Wesleying.

New Stop Motion Movie from Raphael Linden ’15

Almost a year since he wowed audiences with his mind-bending hit “Homonucleus with Milk“, the deft, stop-motion hand of Raphael Linden ’15 has struck again with yet another short video that is as beautiful as it is terrifying. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll see serveral close-ups of Linden’s open orifices.

We at Wesleying have been honored to watch Linden’s evolution as an aspiring animator. One thing’s for sure the kid’s come a long way since his upbeat, 2012 masterpiece “Threshold Dances“.

Oh and just a heads up – this one is decidedly strobey so epileptics be warned. Enjoy!
