when exactly is something a face, and when is it clearly not?

The dizzyness of soul made visible by an ethereal flower woman

Loïe Fuller revolutionized, through her avant-garde research on light, color and movement, the scenic arts at the end of the 19th century. In her shows, she evokes, by her gestures, flowers and butterflies. Initiator of new aesthetics, she arouses the admiration of literary and artistic circles and embodies the eternal feminine at the turn of the century. Symbol of a deep rapprochement between fine and decorative arts, and spirit of Art Nouveau. The serpentine Dance was her masterpiece filmed by the Lumière Brothers.

Waterscape, the reinvented fish bowl

Japanese designer Haruka Misawa created fish bowls with architectural dynamism called “waterscapes.” Underneath the surface of water is a unique environment that exudes an energy which is completely opposite from that which is surrounded by air. Working with buoyancy theories in water, transparent aquariums present air bubbles that suspend and cradle aquatic plants for fish to enjoy.
