"I remember reading something Paul Thomas Anderson said, that you can often feel betrayed by films, because you’ve seen this moment dramatized before in a film, and I guess that’s what the moment in Magnolia where Philip Seymour Hoffman says, “This is part of the movie where you help someone out” is about. There’s no way of putting the genie back in the bottle, that kind of awareness of dramatized moments; you can’t erase it. In the most horrific circumstances of natural disaster, one of the main things that people are saying, “God, it looks like a film.” The moments when you should feel the most connected to things, there’s this awful, dissonant, alienating thing that occurs. I think that’s slightly what Oliver’s suffering from. He almost can’t take moments seriously, because he’s seen them before. To me, that seemed interesting, and isn’t done that much. Scream kind of did it. I think those first two Scream films are incredible, and The Faculty. There’s a real pocket of brilliant writing that Kevin Williamson did in the first season of Dawson’s Creek, which I loved. I really loved Kevin Williamson.” -Richard Ayoade

'Alice in a Labyrinth' is an Alice In Wonderland themed restaurant in the Ginza entertainment district of Tokyo, Japan. The maids are all dressed like Alice and the food and drinks are all themed (with a mixture of Japanese & western dining options). The appetizers come served on chessboards and the drinks are served in 'drink me' potion bottles. There are bunny tails on the chairs and there's even a Mad Hatter tea room. In the bottom picture, you can see the menu opens up into a miniature room scenery (remember the part when Alice grew into a giant? It feels like that). If you go to Japan and decide to check it out, here is their official website with directions. Photo credits 1234 & 5.

Artist Yayoi Kusama in her studio in the psychiatric hospital in Tokyo and back in the days in her New York studio.

Having suffered nervous disorders and hallucinations since childhood, Kusama has chosen to live in a Tokyo psychiatric hospital for the past 38 years, and has built herself a studio opposite. Health permitting, she still makes a daily journey from the hospital to her studio to paint.

La Diablesse" at the underwater sculpture park in Molinere Bay off the west coast of Grenada. These sculptures are not housed in an art gallery but are on the actual sea bed. These sculptures help the coral reefs, acting like a nursery for its renewed growth and development. La Diablesse is a sinister figure from Grenadian folklore

Photographer Patrick Gries entered the Museum of Natural History in Paris to photograph portraits of over 250 skeletons for his series titled Evolution. The resulting fine art photography project presents each of the skeletal frames of various creatures against a black backdrop, elegantly displaying them as brilliant sculptures while simultaneously blurring the lines between science and art.
