"Entering the Blobosphere: A Musing on Blobs" boldly suggests blobs are the unsung, yet integral link in our language to build upon and describe ideas, culture, and knowledge. The common perspective of the blob is an amorphous form with an otherwise gooey texture, however, this is a gross undermining of the power of language and the vivacity of blobs. Fueled by the speculative ideology of blobs as both a theory and a practice, Kim illustrates the moldable and transcendent use of “blob” as a lens to understand the spaces lurking between life and art. Blobs aren’t solely a physical form. But what is a blob if not just a physical thing?
The simple answer is: everything.

Hi everyone! Adnan Samman here. I'm going to be taking over for 15 days starting today as part of Lungs' Creative Incubator Program. I'm originally from Syria and, after living in three different countries before, now I'm living and working in Budapest, Hungary. For my residency with Lungs, I'm bringing back a series I created called "Art Tells Stories". It's an attempt to embrace the storytelling aspect of arts, and you are invited to participate! How? You can simply click the link in bio and anonymously leave me messages or thoughts to be included in my next artworks, which will be shared exclusively here! Very looking forward to this!
Art Tells Stories / First Instalment: "I wish westerners would stop telling me what it means to be free."

My last entry for this residency! Art Tells Stories: "I'm tired of doing unpaid labour to build up my artist CV." Do you have an advice for our anonymous friend here? I think you should never work or intern for free. Go independent, build your own portfolio and network, and those people you’re working/worked for will come to you ;) anyway! It was great engaging with you all! Sorry if your message was not selected. I'm doing so much things these days! I'd be happy if you follow me at @the_post_modern_apollo and perhaps I'll do more in the near future! Many thanks to the awesome ladies at Lungs for this opportunity. It was a lovely experience! See you! ❤ / Adnan Samman / @the_post_modern_apollo / #lungs2019 #creativeincubator #lungsproject
Hi everyone! My name is Maliheh Zafarnezhad and I am an Irish-Iranian artist based in UK and I am going to take over this page as a part of The Creative Incubator Program with @lungsproject. I am a resident of @artsgatewaymk at the moment and my studio is in Milton Keynes with a 45 mins drive from London. My mixed media artworks are a constant pursuit of the best way to represent what I feel as an artist in diaspora with the inspiration of my identity, mixed culture and my childhood memories. I will post everyday from March 6th to March 20th about my artistic career and the progress of my work.

Here is the progress of transferring the image I have digitally manipulated on a small canvas. @maliheh_zafarnezhad
Untitled, photo transfer and acrylic on canvas. Despite the meaning of this work which has nothing to do with #chaharshanbesoori but accidentally it coincides with the tradition tonight. Chahar Shanbe Suri is an Iranian festival celebrated on the eve of the last Wednesday before Nowruz (the Iranian New Year). On the eve of last Wednesday of the year, literally the eve of Red Wednesday or the eve of celebration, bonfires are lit in public places with the help of fire and light, it is hoped for enlightenment and happiness throughout the coming year. People leap over the flames, shouting: (Sorkhi-e to az man) Give me your beautiful red color (Zardi-e man az to) And take back my sickly pallor! #iranchambersociety @maliheh_zafarnezhad
The process of transferring a manipulated image to a canvas. I'm quite happy with what it is now but I may add some paint to it as well. @maliheh_zafarnezhad music: Derakht by @commentbandofficial #malihehzafarnezhad #artistinresidence #lungsproject #creativeincubator #lungs2019 #workinprogress #art #artiststudio #ukart #oldphoto #phototransfer #emergingartist #canvas #commentband
