The Cloud, The Bean, The Peanut, whichever you want. Chicago's Millennial park.
A nearby former mansion, tumbled and splintered into multiple, simultaneous planes. A millennial Cubist view, a quantum view of many possibilities or potentials co-existenting all at once.
Note the life size bronze of a deer toward the upper right. The James Cooper mansion ( this house ) was bought from the Knights of Columbus by a condo developer who was respectful of the heritage of the house so they picked it up and moved it to be almost flush to the street. Veritably, a 'house in motion'. In the space vacated by the mansion, they put up a 32 storey condo tower. Not all developers are as respectful of heritage buildings or the neighbourhoods they build in. We got lucky. The deer was added as a sculpture along with two wolves and a couple of fawns around the front of the property. Indeed, the deer IS upside down, face down, tail up, mounted on a slab of polished metal. It's a great touch.
The title is inspired by a Talking Heads' song, "Houses in Motion". Here the house, indeed, seems to be 'in motion'. A state of transition? Transmutation? Transubstantiation? With David Bryne's multi-dimensional lyrics it's anyone's guess what the song might mean, but that might just be his point ... it can be many things at the same time. As he once said, "Stop Making Sense".
Music Link: "Houses in Motion" - Talking Heads, from their album "Remain in Light". Co-written and co-produced with Brian Eno ( on backing vocals ) and featuring avant garde trumpeter, Jon Hassell.

Ecliptic Millennial Arch. Napier. New Zealand.
This sculpture is placed on Marine Parade to line up with the position that the sun rose on the day of the dawning of the new millennium.
This sculpture celebrates the new millennium and is made from a steel arch of round pipe. At the top two large, highly polished, domed stainless steel discs are fastened back to back. They reflect what is behind the viewer, either the rising sun over the sea, or the lights and Norfolk Island Pines of Marine Parade. The work is lined up to where the sun rose on the day of the dawning of the new millennium. At night it is lit by rings of flexible neon tube between the two discs, which shine out like a halo or rising moon or even an eclipse.
Ecliptic is the name of the path that the sun traces across the heavens throughout the four seasons. It is a reference to David's knowledge of celestial navigation which he acquired while sailing to New Zealand. The concept of the sculpture is thus drawn from direct personal experience. In "shooting the sun" the navigator brings the sun down to the horizon in the sextant's mirrors, and rocks it gently back and forth in an arc over the horizon.
The sculpture is constructed of Steel and stainless steel and is 19m long x 5.5m high, beside the sea on Marine Parade. Ecliptic was placed here by the Napier City Council Millennium Sub-committee to mark the beginning of the third millennium.
To find the point where the sun rose at the start of the millennium, follow a line from the rock through the centre of the arch to the horizon.

National cultural monument, the symbol of more than millennial development of the Czech state. Since its foundation in the last quarter of the 9th century it has been developing uninterruptedly throughout the past eleven centuries. It is a monumental complex of ecclesiastical, fortification, residential and office buildings representing all architectural styles and periods, surrounding three castle courtyards and covering 45 hectares. Originally it used to be the residence of princes and kings of Bohemia, since 1918 it is the seat of the president.
Since 1962, Prague Castle with its archaeological findings has been registered as the National Cultural Monument No. 1.
Beginnings of Prague Castle are connected with the first historically documented member of the Přemyslid family, Bořivoj. In the 880s, he transferred his original seat from Levý Hradec to a place where there had already been a Slavic settlement on the hill above the Vltava River with a very advantageous position. The first princely palace was probably made of wood. The fist stone building and the oldest Christian sanctuary was the Virgin Mary Church. Its remains were found between the second courtyard and the Bastion Garden (Na Baště). This church of Bořivoj was soon re-built by prince Spytihněv I, who was buried here in 915. The second church within the Castle premises was the St. George Basilica established by prince Vratislav I. The next of the Přemyslid princes, Václav (the saint) had the third sanctuary built nearby in the 920s - St. Vít Rotund, which was re-built by prince Spytihněv II to a mighty basilica in the 11th century.
In 973, when the episcopate was established in Prague, Prague Castle was not only the seat of the head of the state, but also the seat of the Prague bishop, the highest representative of the church. At the same time, the first Bohemian monastery was founded by the St. George Basilica.
In the 10th century, the Castle took up approximately 6 hectares. During the Romanic era, the former settlement was re-built to a strong Medieval castle, namely after 1135 thanks to Soběslav I, when the stone princely palace was built and new stone fortifications strengthened by several towers, the best preserved of which is the Eastern Black Tower.
The appearance of Prague Castle was very markedly affected by the Gothic era, namely by Charles IV (1346 - 1378), who succeeded in persuading the pope to promote the Prague episcopate to archiepiscopate, together with his father John of Bohemia (John the Blind) (1310 - 1346), and he laid the foundation stone to the building of the St. Vitus temple. During the reign of Charles IV, the Castle for the first time became an imperial residence. Charles IV had the Prague Castle fortifications strengthened; he generously rebuilt the royal palace with All Saints Chapel. He covered the roofs of the spires by gold-plated metal sheets, which gave rise to the saying Gold Prague. In 1382, Bohemian rulers moved their residence away from Prague Castle for more than 100 years. Royal court was located in what is today the Municipal House, and only returned to Prague Castle in 1483 with Vladislav from the Jagiellon family.
Although the ruler moved to Buda in 1490, he arranged for rebuilding of Prague Castle in late-Gothic style under the command of Benedikt Ried. He was the builder of the magnificent Vladislav Hall, the greatest profane vaulted premises in the contemporary Europe, with which the first marks of Renaissance arrived at Prague. He carried out generous constructional modifications, including the building of new fortifications, defence towers and extending the royal palace. In this era, Gothic was recessing and new building style Renaissance started to leak in.
Direct influence of the new-style Italian art was most noted in Prague during the reign of Ferdinand I (of Habsburg), and when he left Prague, he was succeeded by the governor Ferdinand of Tirol. Back then, the medieval castle was modified into a comfortable Renaissance castle with gardens. Typical Italian architecture of the Royal Summer House was built in the Northern Royal Garden.
Extensive building activity was brought about by the fire in 1541, which greatly damaged the objects within the Castle and around it. Both the residential premises and the church objects were re-built within the framework of the restoration. During the reign of the first Habsburgs, the Castle area was filled by noble palaces (such as the Pernštejn Palace - later the Lobkowicz Palace, Rožmberk Palace, and others). The stables were built in the North-West.
During the reign of emperor Rudolf II (1576 - 1611), the Renaissance and Mannerist reconstruction of the Castle was at its peak, and the Castle became for the second time the centre of European culture and science. New premises for Rudolf’s collections were built in the second courtyard - the New (today the Spanish) Hall and Rudolf’s Gallery. A linking block was built between the North-Western and the South-Eastern part of the Castle. This was the place of the famous “Kunstkomora” and more space for Rudolf’s collector activities. Moreover, further stables were built for his unique Spanish horses. Construction of the Golden Lane (Zlatá ulička) started during the reign of Rudolf. The laboratories of Rudolf’s alchemists are said to have been in the Powder Tower above the Deer Moat (Jelení příkop).
The Castle suffered bad damage when it was seized and plundered by the Saxon army in 1631, and then by the Swedes in 1648. After the Thirty Years’ War, the Habsburgs did not care much about the royal seat in Prague.
It was Maria Theresa in 1755 - 1775 who carried out an extensive reconstruction of Prague Castle into a representative castle complex. The reason for such massive building action was in war damages caused by extensive bombing of the Castle in the war conflicts in the beginning of her reign. The reconstruction was proposed by a Vienna architect Nicolo Pacassi, who made a project of the first courtyard with the monumental entrance gate. The Chapel of the Holy Cross on the second castle courtyard and other buildings, namely the Institute for Noble Women, were also built in the Theresian reconstruction era. The Southern front of the Castle gained a unified monumental late-Baroque facade of a representative seat. The architect’s plans influenced by Rococo in Vienna and French Classicism were realized by the builders Anselmo Lurago, Antonín Kunz and Antonín Haffenecker.
The Castle dilapidated during the 19th century; following the Joseph’s reforms, many buildings were settled by the army. Several objects were constructionally modified in relation to the stay of Ferdinand I the Good after his abdication in 1848, and also in relation with the preparation for the promised coronation of Franz Joseph I in the 1860s. After 1859, the Association for the completion of St. Vitus Temple was founded, and it was first repaired, and then actually completed in 1929, under the care of architect Josef Mocker.
Renowned Slovene architect Josip Plečnik carried out extensive modifications of Prague Castle as a seat of the Czechoslovak president in the years 1920 - 35, expertly uniting precious historical premises with modern civilisation demands. His modifications namely affected the first and the third castle courtyards, the Castle’s Southern gardens, the fourth courtyard with the Bastion Garden, and numerous interiors. For example, he was the author of the so called Column Hall (Sloupová síň), the private premises of the president’s flat, including the so called Masaryk’s office. His pupil, Otto Rothmayer, completed the resolution of several Castle interiors after the World War II in similar quality.
In 1936, Pavel Janák became the castle architect, to be succeeded by Jaroslav Fragner in 1959. After 1989, Prague Castle was opened to public in many locations. When Václav Havel was president, there were several modifications of interior and two new entrances were established at the second courtyard according to a project of artist and designer Bořek Šípek. The trench through the Deer Moat under the Powder Bridge (architect Josef Pleskot) was awarded a special prize for architecture. Also the modern greenhouse designed by world renowned architect Eva Jiřičná is interesting. The square Jiřské náměstí was newly paved and arranged. The mosaic of the Last Judgement was restored in cooperation with the Getti Institute professionals.
Since 1990, Prague Castle has been furnished with floodlighting, activated every day after dusk until midnight, or until 1 a.m. during the tourist season. The tradition of electric lighting in a much smaller extent started in 1928, when the lamps were installed for the first time to commemorate the republic’s 10th anniversary. Floodlighting similar to the current one was installed at the end of the 60s, yet it was only activated on festive occasions, such as national holidays or important days of the republic.
Over the past years, reconstruction has started in many castle objects, and much attention was paid to archaeological research, which has been in progress since 1925 and has brought about many findings about the Castle history. Research and restoration of the individual premises and objects after 1990 has been guided by the idea of revival via the greatest possible opening for public.

The Millennium Storms - The Second Ion Prophecy
With the music : Onur Tarçın - Existence
And warm will be the days and the nights that burn the hills, the heavens and the seas.
And the seven winds will race the earth in whirlwinds of storm roaring like dragons and howling like wolves in the mountains.
And the tides will wake the Giant Adamastor in the cliffs that crumble taking the beaches and the Men of the sea but also the songs of the mermaids of the antiquity.
Thirty-one cycles of seasons will follow the two thousands that have passed when the millennial storms will come.
Through storms and cyclones never seen, swirls of voices that can not be heard anymore.
And they follow each other again and again, not sparing the days nor the nights lost, let alone the verses of the forgotten poets.
Do not pray to the heavens for the lost loves and glories, for they will no longer hear ... Eordhyon was free !
E quentes serão os dias e as noites que queimam os montes, os céus e os mares.
E os sete ventos percorrerão a Terra em remoinhos de tempestades rugindo como dragões e uivando como lobos nas montanhas.
E as marés acordarão o Gigante Adamastor nas falésias que se desmoronam levando as praias e os Homens do mar mas também as canções das sereias da antiguidade.
Trinta e um ciclos de estações se sucederão aos dois milhares que já passaram quando surgirão as tempestades milenares.
Por entre tormentas e ciclones nunca vistos, turbilhões de vozes que não se ouvem mais.
E elas se sucedem uma e outra vez não poupando os dias nem as noites perdidas e muito menos os versos dos poetas esquecidos.
Não rezem aos céus pelos amores e glórias desaparecidas pois estes não ouvirão mais... Eordhyon foi libertado !
-Con il termine Generazione Y, (conosciuta anche come Millennial Generation, Generation Next o Net Generation) si definisce la generazione del nuovo millennio. Gli appartenenti ad essa, chiamati Millennials o Echo Boomers, sono coloro che sono nati tra i primi anni '80 e i primi anni 2000 nel mondo occidentale (o primo mondo). -
-L’arte del dialogo è ancora distante in questo momento della nostra storia, ma è questo il compito più urgente a cui sono chiamati tutti gli abitanti della terra e voi Millennials in particolare -
-The art of dialogue is still far in this moment of our history, but this is the most urgent task to which they are called all the inhabitants of the earth and you Millennials in particular-
Another shot for the millennials and aging hippies that have their collective heads stuck in the sand (snow) and refuse to feel the burn ... pardon me ... the freeze. :-)
This was taken just outside Sally's Cove on Newfoundland's Great Northern Peninsula. The sea ice has been rafted up close to two stories high in places by the action of the wind, current, and tides.
A beautiful sight to see! And yes, that ice you see stretching far off into the distance reaches the other shore ... mainland Canada ... way over there somewhere. And it's not that piece of land you see sticking out on the right of the photo. That's just part of the Newfoundland coast a little farther north of where I was standing. No, this is definitely not just an ice cube or two in your whisky or gin and tonic.

Millennial Oldřich's oak in Peruc, Czech Republic
******** September 27, 2014, was the birth of "TumbleWorld" as a series and as a technique. This is one of the very first images taken the moment I "stumbled" upon this photographic method. After 2 or 3 of these, the term "TumbleWorld" came to mind and I decided then and there that this was going to be my new way of working and talking about my practice as a photographic artist.
Everything that follows from here on, otherwise not indicated as being in the "TumbleWorld" series, is created using this technique. Fundamentally, it's based on the misuse or exploitation of a simple mistake of camera function. "TumbleWorld" has indeed become my mature and signature style. ******** Aug. 2015
A move toward a "Millennial Cubism", if you will. This is the first of a series that, like Cubism, explores the fragmenting of planes to achieve a total composition that distorts or "re-thinks" reality - a common or underlying theme in all of my work.
The possibilities that seem to murmuring just under the surface of this method will be something that I think I'm going to look into for a while. As Brian Eno may have included in his "Oblique Strategies" set of 'oracle' cards, "Exploit an error and make it a feature".
