Beauty halts the melting flux of nature

There is a fresh and genuine defamiliarization happening on Issac Lam’s site. This is not some mere, trendy, knee-jerk malleability going on — ancestry, gender, age and sartorial concerns (like volume and color) are all given a sincere pass through Lam’s frank and luscious filter. 🍒🌶️❤️

Backups & Versioning

Cargo’s genetic engineering division has been hard at work developing a durable cloning device for your content — introducing “Duplicate”! Now you can clone individual pages as well as entire sites. This feature can be used to spin off a version, or to back up a whole website and its contents. (A site does not require an upgrade to be duplicated.) Please use ethically.


Choices incidental, uncalculated and correct

We recommend reading these two ravishing, sweeping tomes — alternating chapters from one book to the other. After, belief in topical, petty sequences will be nigh impossible.

A Thousand Years of Nonlinear History
Manuel De Landa

“In the eyes of many human beings, life appears to be a unique and special phenomenon. There is, of course, some truth to this belief, since no other planet is known to bear a rich and complex biosphere. However, this view betrays an “organic chauvinism” that leads to underestimate the vitality of the processes of self-organization in other spheres of reality. It can also make us forget that, despite the many differences between them, living creatures and their inorganic counter-parts share a crucial dependence on intense flows of energy and materials.”
Sexual Personae
Camille Paglia

“How did beauty begin? Earth-cult, suppressing the eye, locks man in the belly of mothers... Beauty is our weapon against nature; by it we make objects, giving them limit, symmetry, proportion. Beauty halts and freezes the melting flux of nature...”
