Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988)This is my history crush. Just look at him.Not only was he gorgeous with those soulful eyes and that pout, he was a versatile, intelligent, daring, Japanese American artist who grew up a mixed race child of a single mother. Despite so many obstacles in his life, he enjoyed the successes any artist would wish for and is celebrated today. There is so much to say about this extremely gifted sculptor.For a better bio than I could write go to: http://www.noguchi.org/noguchi/biography

The Genius of J.S. Bach’s “Crab Canon” Visualized on a Möbius Strip

Holy harpsichord.

We know J.S. Bach was a genius composer. Certainly among the top two or three that have ever lived by most measures. Even knowing that, I was not prepared for the awesomeness you are about to see.

This is the first canon from Bach’s Musical Offering, known as the “crab canon”. The first level of awesome is when you find out that it was designed to be played backwards and forwards. But lots of people have done that … big deal, right?

Then you find out that it was written to be played backwards and forwards at the same time. That’s pretty amazing, but again, since it’s not that long I wouldn’t classify it as an Earth-shattering epiphany.

BUT THEN … graphic artist Jos Leys (who made the video), show how this Bach piece is basically the musical version of a Möbius strip.

Mind. Blown.
