Brian Smith: Art Obscure

LA based artist, Brian Smith, has an instantly recognizable painting esthetic. His dark futurescapes emanate an aura that is both beautiful and alien. Working both in the figurative realm and the abstract arena, he channels a consistent sense of vast expansiveness, even in his smaller works. The inspiration for his transformative painting’s subjects come from a variety of sources. Some of his hypnotic portraiture communicates a subject frozen in a state of metamorphosis- as if simulating the moment of impact from an intense explosion, or the warping effects of time travel, or the painful reconfiguration of a being in a state of shape shifting. Brian’s paintings transport you to a place that is feels cold and isolated. Although I greatly enjoy visiting this foreboding place, it is not an environment I would want to be trapped inside.

Remember that this game was supposed to be educational.

I like how this game was specifically constructed with an internal forbidden words list, but rampant profanity ended up being the LEAST of this game’s madnesses.

The Olm - Proteus anguinus 

This strange creature is commonly known as the Olm, a rare cave salamander belonging to the species Proteus anguinus (Caudata - Proteidae), which is only found in Europe. 

The Olm is perfectly adapted to live in caves. As it spends its entire life in darkness, Proteus anguinus has very poorly developed eyes and is blind. It also lacks pigment in the skin, giving its body a pasty white appearance, Its pink hue is due to blood capillaries near the skin, and as its translucency shows the contours of the internal organs. 

This salamander does not undergo a clear metamorphosis and retains many juvenile features, such as gills, throughout its life. It is long-lived, potentially reaching up to 58 years of age.

The Olm is restricted to subterranean aquatic habitats in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, France, Italy and Slovenia. The species is classified as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List.
