I am convinced that if we are to get on the right side of the world revolution, we as a nation must undergo a radical revolution of values. We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society…. A true revolution of values will soon look uneasily on the glaring contrast of poverty and wealth…. The Western arrogance of feeling that it has everything to teach others and nothing to learn from them is not just. America, the richest and most powerful nation in the world, can well lead the way in this revolution of values…. A genuine revolution of values means in the final analysis that our loyalties must become ecumenical rather than sectional. Every nation must now develop an overriding loyalty to [humanity] as a whole in order to preserve the best in their individual societies.

Mike and Claire Present: Fried Eggs

Mike and Claire are a collaborative artist duo based in New York who craft bizarre worlds through GIFS, film and performance. VICE readers may remember the psychedelic Easter Sunday GIFS they made for us a couple months back. In recent press their work has been compared to a wide range of artists, ranging from Cindy Sherman and Ryan Trecartin to Tim and Eric

Here’s the world premiere of their new video, Fried Eggs. Inspired by the recent rise in feminism in pop culture (Pussy Riot, etc.) Mike and Claire were interested in contributing to current discourse in the media through actions rather than words. “The idea of an action being more powerful then words inspired the lack of dialogue and an importance on movement and sound,” they told VICE. “We wanted to create a modern cartoon, that represented how we feel, but at the same time paid homage to people who are making aggressive changes for women.”

I’ve practiced this forever : “This is going to sound crazy. Say yes to everything. Accept all offers. Go along with the plan. Support someone else’s dream. Say: “yes”; “right”; “sure”; “I will”; “okay”; “of course”; “YES!” Cultivate all the ways you can imagine to express affirmation. When the answer to all questions is yes, you enter a new world, a world of action, possibility, and adventure… It is undoubtedly an exaggeration to suggest that we can say yes to everything that comes up, but we can all say yes to more than we normally do. Once you become aware that you can, you will see how often we use the technique of blocking in personal relationships simply out of habit. Turning this around can bring positive and unexpected results… Try substituting “yes and” for “yes but” — this will get the ball rolling.”

So here’s what I wanted to tell you today: get a life. A real life, not a manic pursuit of the next promotion, the bigger paycheck, the larger house. Do you think you’d care so very much about those things if you blew an aneurysm one afternoon, or found a lump in your breast? Get a life in which you notice the smell of salt water pushing itself on a breeze over Seaside Heights, a life in which you stop and watch how a red tailed hawk circles over the water gap or the way a baby scowls with concentration when she tries to pick up a Cheerio with her thumb and first finger. Get a life in which you are not alone. Find people you love, and who love you. And remember that love is not leisure, it is work… Remember that you are…still learning how to best treasure your connection to others. Pick up the phone. Send an e-mail. Write a letter.

Asylums, by Richard Kolker (via things)

“Asylums” uses the techniques of architectural modelling and visualisation to create 3D computer models of key asylum designs based on the original floor plans and available aerial photographs. The images are then rendered with the interior colours of the institutions they represent, to explore this intended relationship between design and treatment.

This animated GIF from Micaël Reynaud's award-winning series warping space and time calls to mind the iconic Powers of Ten film by Charles and Ray Eames visualizing the scale of the universe. 
In fact, it’s surprising that no one (to my knowledge) has adapted the film into an animated GIF yet – though it’s been adapted into a delightful flipbook, which is essentially an analog animated GIF.
