ENGLISH: According to Fernando Pessoa, something can exist only "persisting" infinitely on itself. A pinpoint however encloses. For the esoterism of Fernando Pessoa, a snake through its shape in letter S reproduces the infinity symbol in mathematics (∞). This one always is perceived in the "slithering lying down" from universality to particularity. In a letter S, it seems that a "sky vault" slithers on an "earth crust". Fernando Pessoa writes that the One of universality would create a Pyramid of materiality. On Earth we know a tris in the plane of height, lenght and width. So the One would have a "slithering duality", through a multiplicity embraced from the "sky vault" into the "horizon of crust". According to the esoterism, a snake will seem a waxing moon of lower world, and in the same time a vaning moon of upper world. The model Manuela Mariani poses releasing a great sensuality. The right arm almost "wiggles its hips", on the "side" of armpit. Mirroring, the bust "lays down" on the depth in its "twirl". The shape of breast reproduces the infinity symbol in mathematics (∞), at least having more "rose windows" laced each other. The hairdo has "slithering coils". We remember that Fernando Pessoa studied the esoterism of Rosicrucian Order. Here the rigth arm launches a configuration in letter S for the entire pose. Almost "twirling" on its mirroring, the bust would gain a pyramidal volume, and through the sensuality of breast.

ITALIAN: Per Fernando Pessoa, qualcosa può esistere solo "insistendo" all'infinito su di sé. Un piccolissimo punto comunque racchiude. Nell’esoterismo di Fernando Pessoa, il serpente con la sua forma a lettera S riproduce il simbolo dell'infinito in matematica (∞). Quest’ultimo sempre si percepisce nel "coricamento strisciante" dell’universalità sulla particolarità. Nella lettera S, pare che una "volta celeste" serpeggi su una "crosta terrestre". Fernando Pessoa scrive che l'Uno dell’universale si creerebbe una Piramide del materiale. Sulla Terra noi conosciamo i tre piani dell'altezza, della lunghezza e della larghezza. Dunque l'Uno avrebbe una "dualità serpeggiante", mediante un molteplice abbracciato dalla "volta celeste" verso "l'orizzonte della crosta". Per l'esoterismo, il serpente sembrerà una luna crescente del mondo inferiore, e nel contempo una luna calante del mondo superiore. La modella Manuela Mariani posa liberando una grande sensualità. Il braccio destro quasi "ancheggia", sul "fianco" dell'ascella. Specchiandosi, il busto "si corica" in profondità nel suo "volteggio". La forma del seno riproduce il simbolo dell'infinito in matematica (∞), quantomeno avendo più "rosoni" nel loro allacciamento. La pettinatura consta di "volute serpeggianti". Ricordiamoci che Fernando Pessoa studiò l’esoterismo dei Rosacroce. Qui il braccio destro avvia una configurazione a lettera S dell'intera posa. Quasi "volteggiando" nel suo specchiarsi, il busto acquisterebbe un volume piramidale, e tramite la sensualità del seno.

#TOTHEMOON: BARE USA (If #Waldo was hot and had a vagina!)

by June Ann D'Angelo

today, we are sending the BARE USA project #tothemoon! Brian Cattelle set out last year to canvas the country and find amazing architectural gems that have been graced by man-made decay. for each state he visits, he finds that one brave model to dive into this beautifully grotesque playground (and play Waldo) left to us by the past to create amazing #nude art for the future (of your wall)! he has already completed 30 of the 50 states and has previewed his work in many galleries around the nation and even at Art Basel in Miami. the Missouri project is also featured in the current issue of the #1 art nude magazine in the world, VOLO (Issue #23). he is in the process of crowdfunding to finish the travel portion and start on the actual book publication. the kickstarter is almost half way funded, but he needs our help to see this through.

you can jump in on the ground floor and snag a signed, limited edition, high-quality print of your choice by donating to the kickstarter. at least take a look at the awesome project and play 'Where's Waldo' for a little bit...
