CULTURAL FUSION, ASSIMILATION OR DILUTION?

Lucas Grogan
X DISARM X 1,  2011    
                                                  
Grogan's works focuses on the fusion of both modern and visually exciting art, while remaining loyal to this Indigenous Aboriginal roots. This combination of passion, beauty and history is central to this post when we bring all of these aspects into our daily lives.

"Carnelian is a gem stone used in jewelry since the Biblical days. It is said to have properties of good luck or good fortune to those who wear it. The Egyptians used the Carnelian as a protective stone. It has been referred to as the 'Blood of Isis.'" It is said to protect against negative emotions and spirits and to bring good luck and fortune. Lets hope my little pinky ring brings some more good times while looking rad! A HUGE thanks to Valerija for giving it to me.

Thank you for Littering!


Proof that good packaging can really sell anything. Justin Gignac a New York City based artist began selling New York garbage in 2001 to prove to a co-worker the significance of packaging design. Justin has since sold 1,300 of his garbage cubes in 29 countries!
