On our way to school yesterday morning. A Monday Morning. Not easy getting to this point, in time: The Franckendael Park close to school, and we’re all dressed, my son’s backpack packed and we’re on our bikes. Hallelujah, The Counterforce overcome, everything in order 😉
On my way back I took this picture. Familiar but amazing work by two busy little creatures*. Exposed by dew in an early morning sunlight it kickstarted my week and I got going! things to do! social life to catch up! bedroom to redecorate! blog to reinvent! and work on my web.
*) I am always in awe when confronted with the mathematics and order of nature, and find it reassuring that underneath apparent mess and randomness there is a masterplan.
Mediamatic in Amsterdam is doing a show on Ernst Haeckel’s Kunstformen der Natur. Interesting stuff! (open 6 Sept – 30 Oct Wed-Sun)
Also amazing, this infographic taken from the newspaper. It’s the ebola virus. Scary!

Publishing House TASCHEN released a new book on the art and science of Ernst Haeckel this month.
- Discover Ernst Haeckel, the 19th-century artist-biologist who found beauty in even the most unlikely of creatures. This collection features 450 prints from his most important publications, including the majestic Kunstformen der Natur and his extensive catalogues of marine life. As biodiversity is ever-more threatened, these exquisite images are a scientific, artistic, and environmental masterwork
