With the Passing of Time

Feuilleton

Posted on: June 5, 2008

feuilleton
\fuh-yuh-TOHNG (the “ng” is not pronounced, but the preceding vowel is nasalized)\ | noun

1 : a part of a European newspaper or magazine devoted to material designed to entertain the general reader
2 : a work of fiction printed in installments
3 : a short literary composition often having a familiar tone and reminiscent content

The first link is a blog by an artist, John Coulthart. I know this isn’t the first picture for the word, but the picture that was up when I found the site is so special it must be shared and kept for posterity.

{In case the link from the picture isn’t working, it’s the picture on the June 6 entry from John Coulthart’s blog.}

It’s a sculpture by Rune Olsen, sexual and creepy and I kind of like it. I wouldn’t own it but I like it.

The first picture is also from this same blog, and now that I see a second page I can see that this guy definitely has a theme to the art he selects.

I prefer the picture from the first post myself.

Thanks for explaining the dates!

I hadn’t even read what it was made of. Oh my is right.
