I really am too easily bored

I cringe when I read what contract law people write about concerning economic theory.

UP, UP, AND AWAY.

Because you can’t go up without going away. And if you don’t go up, you go down. Hell is middle ground.

"But [angel investor Ron Conway] took a turn for the serious, warning the enthusiastic crowd that “you have to be willing to work 24/7.” He then went a step further, solemnly claiming, “Dating someone or married: warn them that they’re not first in line, that you have this vocation, that your duty is to your company. It has to be that fanatical.”

Troels Carlsen s Paintings Within Paintings

Troels Carlsen’s visual language is diverse and poetic. Often incorporating interactions with vintage anatomical charts, maps and antique book pages, his work contains continuous visual and conceptual shifts between the biologically charted and the human consciousness. Rather than fostering contradiction, these works beg a curious question, which simultaneously challenges the notion of a given and complete truth whilst hinting that reality could be hiding somewhere behind the apparent foreground. Art historical movements, such as romanticism and symbolism, are paramount inspirational references within Carlsen’s work, juxtaposing the primacy of man with a scientific rationalization of nature.
