Artist Tomás Saraceno (born in Tucumán, Argentina, in 1973) has created a constellation of large, interconnected modules constructed with transparent and reflective materials for the Museum’s Iris and B. Gerald Cantor Roof Garden. Visitors may enter and walk through these habitat-like, modular structures grouped in a nonlinear configuration. Over the past decade, Saraceno has established a practice of constructing habitable networks based upon complex geometries and interconnectivity that merge art, architecture, and science. The interdisciplinary project “Cloud Cities/Air Port City” is rooted in the artist’s investigation of expanding the ways in which we inhabit and experience our environment.
Lately, I’ve been getting into the art of Zentangle. Basically what Zentangle is the art of meditative doodling. Since I was a kid, I’ve always been drawing designs on the margins of my notebook, so when I learned that there is a whole art movement similar to my doodles, I was excited.
I’ve been posting some of my Zentangles on Instagram because I realized that it was a great place to share my artwork with the community. I feel a sense of pride whenever someone who doesn’t follow me likes my work. 😀

Speaking of Instagram, if you haven’t done so check out my first two Instagram Fridays post here and here.
When I was browsing Instagrid for my next Instagram Fridays post, Rainbowgirl’s photographs stood out to me the most from the Featured Users page. It may be because of the stark contrast of black and white in her photographs that caught my eye. Or maybe it was that the figures were tiny so I had to click for a larger view because I was curious. I find her work refreshing because most Instagram posts are full of food art and self-portraits in front of the bathroom mirror and then an artsy filter added on top of it. To each their own with what people want to post on Instagram but very few have the unique storytelling qualities of Rainbowgirl.
