Abstract Expressionist Gifs by Xponentialdesign

Cross Connect favorite Xponentialdesign is Dominic Pons of the Montreal suburbs  and he primarily makes his living selling motion design templates and loops on Videohive.  The loops he creates on Tumblr are his research lab, and by design he  works in many different styles.  This ‘research’ is often visually compelling and here you can see one strand of his work that to me really stands out.  It echoes the work of great abstract expressionist painters like Jackson Pollock and Cy Twombly, work that always had a strong sense of motion.  These gifs are the tangible  manifestation of that. True action painting.  I wonder what Clement Greenberg would think.

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.
