(If You) Keep Me in Your Heart by Bill Wells & Aidan Moffat from this year’s acclaimed Everything’s Getting Older.
If you keep me in your heart, then keep me in your wallet tucked between the money that I wasted on you. And keep me in your phone, keep me on your keyring, keep me rolling around about the bottom of your bag. And keep me in your hall, keep me in your bathroom, keep me hanging up, stretched out and dripping next to you. And keep me in your sheets, between the stripes and flowers, where the map we used to draw has long since washed away.
“time, because it is so fleeting. time, because it is beyond recall, is the most precious of human goods and to squander it is the most delicate form of dissipation in which man can indulge.”
W. Somerset Maugham

A Cathedral Made from 55,000 LED Lights
The Luminarie De Cagna is an imposing cathedral-like structure that was recently on display at the 2012 Light Festival in Ghent, Belgium. The festival was host to almost 30 exhibitions including plenty of 3D projection mapping, fields of luminous flowers, and a glowing phone booth aquarium, however with 55,000 LEDs and towering 28 meters high the Luminarie De Cagna seems to have stolen the show.
