The second was a graphic novel that Hurley was reading was Y the Last Man (specifically vol 3: One Small Step). It is about a plague that wipes out every male mammal on earth except for Yorick and his pet monkey, Ampersand.
So no philosophical musings or creative projects; this is all I got for this post.

A Russian Fairytale that I had not heard of.
James and the Giant Peach
Red Fish Blue FishAlice in wonderland.
A rotaded white tunnel that was pretty cool.
This was my favorite. Don't know what it is supposed to be yet but the form is awesome.
This is Laura's favorite as well as the one that put everyone elses to shame. It is the Jolly Rogers from Peter Pan complete with cannons and a ships cabin.
And some randome pictures of Randy with the frog sculptures.
Oh, and here is Laura with her stack of books she was using to study for her comps test (which she is taking as I type).

My initial assumption: Everything that is created has a Spirit behind it, every aspect of physical reality is incarnate. My definition of Spirit is incredibly broad in this context; it can refer to anything from individual’s will to physical laws.
Art and non-art are the two categories that all created things fall into. Beauty is the standard that separates them. The big problem with this system is that it ends up not being precise, exact, and mathematical because we have no way of accurately measuring and weighting the beauty contained within a created object. But just because it lacks preciseness doesn’t mean that automatically falls into the dreaded chasm of the subjective. The subjective/objective distinction is carried by what judge is used, and objective beauty ultimately comes from God as both the Creator and the Judge.
This understanding of art is helpful is several repects:
First, it establishes a context in which to view the existence of Beauty as a proof of the existence of God.
Second, it sheds light on the importance of the Incarnation.
Third, thought it is simple it can account for the myriad of objects that are labeled art by containing flexibility according to the taste of whatever is the judge while still maintaining an objective standard if using the right judge.
Fourth, it sheds light on man as a created, creative being (which allows for cool diagrams).
