"Buddha seems to bring tranquility to Oakland neighborhood"

“Buddha seems to bring tranquility to Oakland neighborhood”

“Sometimes it only take one person with a good intention in action.

Dan Stevenson decided to buy and place a Buddha in a high crime area with the hope and to bring a bit of tranquility in the neighbourhood, leading to residents leaving offerings, enhancing the shrine, changing people’s behaviour in that area and a couple years later the crime in that particular area has gone down!” MJ

“Love Bites” series guest speaker – Adam Quang on Karma Love, How to Live to 110 Years and Stay Looking Young – South Bank Centre – London UK June.2014

 

The artist:

Adam Quang  is an award winning interdisciplinary artist whose work explores human nature and plausibility in contemporary society; pieces that stroke the visual and tactile senses, that touch the heart, and hinge on the duality of his life spent in Asia and North America. In a mass market versus mass marketing framework, Adam’s art stirs our imagination through image and metaphor, shadow and hidden meaning within. He provokes action from the viewer and invites them to be part of the evolving art. He is the founder of World Karma Project. Its mission is to make you and the people around you “awesome.” Adam currently lives in Toronto Canada. Click here for artist statement

24 People Who Applied for the World’s Toughest Job #worldstoughestjob

” Here’s a pretty cool project from Mullen for a client we won’t immediately reveal, lest we spoil the surprise. (Scroll down to the bottom of credits, or watch the video to find out.)
The Boston agency posted this job listing online for a “director of operations” position at a company called Rehtom Inc. The requirements sounded nothing short of brutal:
• Standing up almost all the time
• Constantly exerting yourself
• Working from 135 to unlimited hours per week
• Degrees in medicine, finance and culinary arts necessary
• No vacations
• The work load goes up on Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year’s and other holidays
• No time to sleep
• Salary = $0
The job ad got 2.7 million impressions from paid ad placements. Only 24 people inquired. They interviewed via webcam, and their real-time reactions were captured on video.
Check out what happened below. It’s worth watching to the end.”

Disco Helmet

Connect everyday people with a smile

#DiscoHelmet Project’s aim to connect everyday people with a smile, while cutting through the veil of electronic distractions that surround us. We can consciously choose to make technology visible or transparent and by doing so out of choice, we empower and bring ourselves into the present moment. The project creates an experience for the audience to develop ideas and explore their inner selves. The presence of the artist wearing the helmet with an air of radical honesty and sincerity adds to the aesthetics. Nothing says tackling the urban jungle while living in the city like a disco helmet!
