Library of Dust.

Art instillation by David Maisel. Approximately 3,500 canisters of unclaimed ashes from once up and running Oregon State Insane Asylum between the 1880′s into the 1970′s.

“Lunatics are similar to designated hitters. Often an entire family is crazy, but since an entire family can’t go into the hospital, one person is designated as crazy and goes inside. Then, depending on how the rest of the family is feeling that person is kept inside or snatched out, to prove something about the family’s mental health.” – Susan Kaysen.

21 years old, Living in Brisbane and Studying diploma of visual arts. My blog is like a visual diary everything that inspires or intrigues me, gets posted. I post my own paintings/drawings which are results of my inspirations. I do not take myself seriously. I love art more than most things, I just hate the assholes of the art industry. "All artists are willing to suffer for their work. But why are so few prepared to learn to draw?" — Banksy View all posts by dixiemakesastatement
