Or, more accurately three girls’ treasures. Three tortured souls, three great artists. What were their favorite objects, their magic talismans? Bett Norris illustrated the (imaginary) most precious possessions of Sylvia Plath:
and Edith Piaf:
Flowers and death being the common denominator…
You can find these treasures on Bett Norris’ Etsy shop

I am ambivalent about this. Is it ironic or moronic? Is it a critique of celebrity image, in this paparazzi infested world? Or is it a strained attempt to be the next meme? Here is the concept and you’ll be the judge:
Photographer Chris Buck had a side project. Once a photo shoot with an artist was completed, he would ask them to hide somewhere inside the frame and then he would take a photograph. The series is appropriately called “Presence“. Cleverly enough he asked witnesses to sign an affidavit affirming the presence of the artist. In the monograph of the series, this signed document is displayed across the photograph itself. An empty photograph and a legal document. What do you think?
Let’s do an experiment. Can you tell which artist hides in which photo? Do you feel their “presence”? (answers on hover).
Admittedly, Buck seems interested in the concept of the public image of the celebrity. In another of his series, named ISNT, he explores Alison Jackson-esque scenes with celebrity look-alikes. By the way, if you haven’t already, you should visit Jackson’s faux celebrity blog.

Impressed. I can’t really find any other word to describe my impression when I first saw Flippy Cat’s amazing video of Starry Night by Vincent van DominoGogh. Van Gogh’s famous painting was recreated by 7067 dominoes in an attempt which took more than 11 hours to be completed.
Super cool or what…
