Wisconsin based artist Annalynn Hammond seeks to question the dichotomies that play in the world of human ideas. She is best known for her unique hand-cut paper collages made from vintage textbooks and natural history magazines. Hammond combines different subject areas including, human and animal, body and soul, mind and machine, culture and nature, purity and sin, power and weakness, and many other antitheses.

Her surreal collages encourage the viewer to ask questions and think about the extremes within the pictures. The single images are undeniably someone else’s work, which were found, stolen, destroyed and appropriated. But a thing in itself has no meaning. The idea of a collage is to cut a special image region out and paste it into another picture, giving a new context to the assembled artwork.

up dog day afternoon 3 lg2 The Top 10 Sweatiest Movies of All Time Cool Hand Luke a time to kill

TIME Magazine, honoring Labor Day and the end of summer, have compiled the Top 10 Sweatiest Movies of all-time for us all to enjoy. We were surprised to see Dog Day Afternoon make it all the way to #8, but you got Rear Window, Cat On a Hot Tin Roof, A Time to Kill (seriously, McConaughey is just sheening in this film), 12 Angry Men, Do the Right Thing (at #2), and at #1, Cool Hand Luke. Great film. Lots of sweaty dudes, and one shirtless, organic Newman.

See the explanations here.
