4D Sculptures of Cut Glass and Refracted Light by Jed Malitz

Jed Malitz after graduating with a bachelor’s of arts degree (centered on math and computer science) from the University of Colorado at Boulder, pursued a career in information technology for the next 25 years. During his time in IT, his responsibilities frequently included investigating the features and limitations of various technologies.

In 2011, Malitz ended his IT career to dedicate himself to art, and to focus on creating the ethereal forms he had dreamed of earlier. He live-modeled three figures from human subjects, and completed building their sculptures in 2012.

These forms are made entirely of redirected light, do not physically exist, and reveal otherwise hidden perspectives of their subjects. The entire subjects in cut glass thus project their entire hidden selves as pure light, in essence, revealing their souls.

Jed Malitz living and working in New Orleans, Louisiana.

You need the art in order to love the life. We guarantee you that!

Stiff Pose Victorian Postmortem photography (140 Pics)

Postmortem photography or memento mori, the photographing of a deceased person, was a common practice in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The photographs were considered a keepsake to remember the dead. Child mortality was high during the Victorian era. For many children even a common sickness could be fatal. When a child or other family member died, families would often have a photograph taken before burial. Many times it was the first and last photograph they would ever possess of their loved one. Many postmortem photographs were close-ups of the face or shots of the full body. The deceased were usually depicted to appear as if they were in a deep sleep, or else arranged to appear more life-like. Children were often shown on a couch or in a crib, often posed with a favorite toy. It was not uncommon to photograph very young children with a family member, most frequently the mother. Adults were more commonly posed in chairs or even propped up on something.
