Snow is white—but why?
A few days ago I learned
what makes snow white, soft and crunchy
instead of clear, tough and slippery,
despite being just as water as ice.
It’s actually the crystals, invisible to our eyes
forgotten in random orientation.
They are microscopic ice cubes intertwined
into columns, needles and plates,
reflecting, by the same law in physics,
their unique waves from above,
returning all, completely, the colors
of the world, which combined,
in our eyes, mark the purity and sense of space.
A scipoem, must read
“This series is based on the drawings made by snails on the wet sand in the inter-tidal zone. They are part of an ongoing series of works involving collaboration between the snails and me. I choreograph the snails’ starting positions, and then photograph the marks they make over time.
I tend to think of the snail pieces as a metaphor for the order we establish in our lives, and how the element of chance enters in to shape the result -regardless of how much we attempt to structure it.”
Daniel Renalli, Snail Drawings Series (1995-Present)
This has got to inspire someone to write something.
Fornasetti Original Tema e Variazioni Plates designed by Piero Fornasetti, an artist from Milan, Italy. The face is that of nineteenth century operatic soprano Lina Cavalieri whose face he reproduced over 500 times in his life’s work series Tema e Variazioni (Themes and Variations).
I must say that I haven’t posted in some time, but now that I have returned I’d like to let everyone know that there are ways to be happy, and even if not, writing scipoetry will probably help.
Scipoem idea: creativity comes from putting old knowledge into new use.
I don’t know about you, but the fact that you can game in the bathtub through mixing current technology is both exciting and distressing.
Scipoem idea: our beliefs are bound by what we can experience and envision.
This is an image taken from a 5th dimensional camera. In essence, it is the sum of all the possibilities that could happen at any moment, and we simply choose to take a particular path.
The science behind it is based on quantum mechanics, particularly Everett’s “Many Worlds” theory.

A furniture homage to the animal kingdom by Maximo Riera.
From Maximo’s website:
“The Animal Chair collection constitutes a diverse range of species, from mammals to reptiles, and even including insects. Each creation retains the animal’s natural vitality whilst being totally biological accurate in their appearance. This collection is homage to these animals and the whole animal kingdom which inhabits our planet, as an attempt to reflect and capture the beauty of nature in each living thing.”
This collection includes the walrus, the whale, the octopus, the rhinoceros and more.
