Shawn I Am.

Passion. It lies in all of us. Sleeping...waiting... And though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws, and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... Passion rules us all. And we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion, maybe we'd know some kind of peace. But we would be hollow. Empty rooms, shuttered and dank... Without passion, we'd be truly dead.

I was telling my friend a story the other day and it must have taken too long because he quietly took out his wallet and handed this to me.
He literally carries like 50 of them at all times.

Peter Zumthor - Swiss sound box, a pavilion for the 2000 expo in Hanover. The temporary pavilion was designed with the expo’s theme of “sustainability” in mind. Over 3000 cubic meters of Swiss Larch and Fir were shipped to Germany, and stacked in a fashion similar to standard lumber-drying racks. Engineer Jürg Conzett was brought in to devise a cable tensioning system that allowed the structure to be assembled without the use of nails, screws, or other adhesives. The tension rods were periodically tightened throughout the course of the expo to maintain structural integrity as the wood dried. The project was then disassembled and shipped back to Switzerland in a post-tensioned state, increasing the value of the lumber. The porous design also played a crucial role in the programing of the space; unlike other pavilions which traditionally served as national portfolios, the soundbox was intended as place to relax, socialize, and explore. Over 500 musicians wandered through the projects labyrinthian layout during its 6 month existence, sometimes interacting through the walls, other times congregation for orchestral performances. Three different bar and food areas ensured visitors had a more private space to relax amongst the congested expo grounds. Photos (C) Roland Halbe

The Wonderful and Unique Work of Jon Jacobsen

From my perspective, daily life lies between the real world and fantasy. This duality crystalizes so naturally that it looks imperceptible for us: we live in the present without being conscious of it until something happens and breaks this state. This triggers emotions that confirm the coexistence between reality and fantasy in the everyday world.

My creative process starts with the observation of an event that shatters this duality, thus giving me the conceptual base for what in the future will be an image. From this framework, I start creating symbolic relations which are necessary to build a visual metaphor which will bring a first sketch. Nevertheless, my creative process does not respond to any linear sequence, but rather to a come and go between the creator and the artwork.

The photographic language does not capture the reality I want to show in my work. To fill this gap, I mix digital techniques that expand the semiotics of the image, to the point of merging fantasy with reality. This combination of techniques makes my work more diverse and this allows, in a certain way, to reinvent each new project.

Finally, the guidelines that lead my work consist of portraits and self-portraits because, on the one hand, I’m interested to express in an image the vulnerability of human beings facing their surroundings and themselves; and on the other hand, through self-portraiture I represent the inexorable passing of time and how each character inside my image blurs out the limits of their bodies as to, in a horizontal relation, be part of the whole.

In 1986, the United Way attempted to break the world record for balloon launches, by releasing 1.5 million balloons, which resulted in two deaths, millions in lawsuits, and a devastating environmental impact.
