James Charles alters the portraits on American dollar bills, exchanging the original staid and solemn faces with those of famous pop culture icons. Sometimes Charles simply draws over the original portraits on the bills, giving the famous politico faces playful makeovers, while on others he completely replaces the original faces. In either case, the text at the bottom of every bill is also replaced with either the name of the new face or a quote or descriptive phrase.

The Bride of Frankenstein’s text reads “Runaway Bride” while Frankenstein’s Monster reads “Love Lorn.” And Willy Wonka’s bill reads “The Bossman” while an Oompa-Loompa on another bill reads “Working Class Stiff.”

These dollars were exhibited back in 2011 as part of the American Iconomics show at the Shooting Gallery in San Francisco.

"All negativity is caused by an accumulation of psychological time and denial of the present. Unease, anxiety, tension, stress, worry - all forms of fear - are caused by too much future, and not enough presence. Guilt, regret, resentment, grievances, sadness, bitterness, and all forms of nonforgiveness are caused by too much past, and not enough presence."

According to mathematician and Einstein collaborator Ernst Straus, this is the anecdote that Albert most thought captured his essence:

We [Einstein and Ernst Straus] had finished the preparation of a paper and were looking for a paper clip. After opening a lot of drawers we finally found…

A Lesson in Letting Go

A psychologist walked around a room while teaching stress management to an audience. As she raised a glass of water, everyone expected they’d be asked the “half empty or half full” question. Instead, with a smile on her face, she inquired: “How heavy is this glass of water?”

Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz. She replied, “The absolute weight doesn’t matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, it’s not a problem. If I hold it for an hour, I’ll have an ache in my arm. If I hold it for a day, my arm will feel numb and paralyzed. In each case, the weight of the glass doesn’t change, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes.” She continued, “The stresses and worries in life are like that glass of water. Think about them for a while and nothing happens. Think about them a bit longer and they begin to hurt. And if you think about them all day long, you will feel paralyzed – incapable of doing anything.”

Remember to put the glass down.


BIG Maze BIG Bjarke Ingels Group

"This summer, the National Building Museum [in Washington D.C.] will host the “BIG Maze”, a 61-foot-by-61-foot labyrinth. The maze, which will be erected in Baltic birch plywood, summons to mind the hedge mazes of 18th-century Europe. But BIG has put in a twist: The 18-foot-high walls descend in height as one proceeds through the maze toward the center, meaning that the vantage point from the center offers perfect knowledge of how the maze works.” [via]

"When we crave permanence, death is the final argument we lose. The ego also fears death and configures it as the darkest shadow. Yet death is not the shadow of life but its necessary counterpart, an ingredient, a season of the cycle of by which nature thrives and renews itself. Only when it is fading does the rose produce the seeds that continue its life cycle."
