Victoire de Castellane’s show, “Precious Objects,” takes liberties with the conventions of precious-jewelry design. Her work is inspired by her free associations. Read Judith Thurman’s thoughts on some of the designs: http://nyr.kr/1lRdg6O
Above: “Amanita Satana Diabolus,” 2010. Over-all dimensions of necklace with base: 5 x 12.25 x 8.25 inches (15 x 31 x 2.5 cm). (c) Victoire de Castellane. Courtesy Gagosian Gallery. Photograph by Erwan Frotin.

Jewelry is one of the oldest forms of personal expression. This is worth seeing.

    generalelectric:

    Electrons are directed through a fluorescent lightbulb by molecules of mercury and argon in this series of GIFs from “La Magia de la Fluorescencia,” a GE science film from 1946. 

    I’m such a geek at heart. Plus my Dad was an electrical engineer so I have a fondness for electrons!

    Life Is Short, Proust Is Long

    newyorker:

    Can “Atlas Shrugged” really be read in a day? A new speed-reading technology promises rates of up to a thousand words a minute: http://nyr.kr/1orlcxJ

    “In at least one way, slow reading is always unreasonable. It denies finitude. ‘Life is too short,’ as Anatole France once put it, ‘and Proust is too long.’ The problem with taking your time is that time runs out.”

    Illustration by Boyoun Kim.

    Does speed reading miss the point of engagement with the story?

    I’m making a Thai eggplant and browned tofu coconut green curry later for dinner, but right now the rice - Bhutanese red again - is cooking away with red chilies, fresh garlic, cumin, whole cinnamon, whole cardamom, turmeric, smoked sea salt, fresh lemongrass, and white pepper.

    After airing out…

    I love this red rice. You should try if if you have not had it. I don’t think it matters so much how it is cooked, it’s delicious plain.
