still exhausted: presidential election joy hangover

well, i apologize for lacking the energy to post interesting and distracting things on this blog for a while. i'll try to reverse the trend. here, from BoingBoing and Shape&Color:

this is artist roger hiorns in his piece "seizure"; it's an apartment coated with blue copper phosphate crystals. the artist pumped in the liquid copper solution, let it crystallize on all surfaces in cooler temperatures, and then pumped out the remaining fluid. who knows how he managed to pump it all! but now it looks like a magical, sparkly, inky-blue rabbit warren. it's in london, and it's open to the public for now. i think it's pretty cool.
