Let's create a global exchange of creativity and exploration.
Invest. However you join us, as Participant/Student or Artist/Activist, think of us as partners.
As partners, we'll provide you with a platform to project your sounds, music, images, and ideas. You'll show your work around the world in artist pages, blog pages, or live presentations.
We'll invite you to attend GetTogethers. And participate in GetTogethers. A GetTogether is an informal concert or meeting or ... It can take place anywhere in the world. It's free. And it's documented in our website to make it available everywhere.
We use newsletters and social media to spread the word, and as a member, we'll promote your events through our calendar.
In short, we want to form a global group of artists and activists and participants and students who are concerned with the state of the world. To join the group, go HERE.
The current Gallery, presented in the slideshow, is a group of images borrowed from NASA. Many of the photos were taken from the International Space Station.
Several of the photos allow us to see large areas of the earth's surface. Some give us a clear picture of the earth as a globe. In some photos we see a blue frame. That blue frame is our atmosphere. Air. Our natural environment.
It should be clear that with everyone on Earth sharing that environment, we are together a global community.
Ear to the Earth's mission is to develop and improve that community. We are doing this by creating a global group of artists that illuminate the world in music, sound art, visual arts, including ideas, stories, and images.
As the Gallery changes, we post the images online. To see past Galleries, go HERE.
"Sound and music are the original augmented reality technology. Throughout human history, sound and music have played an intrinsic role in magic, ritual, ceremony, and celebration, transforming the mundane into the sublime, marking everyday events as memorable milestones, and enhancing the flow of experience. Acoustic archeologists speculate that certain acoustic properties of ancient monuments were intentionally designed to transform the human voice into something supernatural and that, throughout history, centers of power have been constructed as polished stone surfaces enclosing vast spaces in order to augment the sounds created within them — creating mysterious, impressive, and transformative experiences." ‐ Carla Scaletti
This year's Kyma International Sound Symposium, exploring the theme of Augmenting Reality, will take place in Oslo, Norway, 12—15 October 2017. Interested? Go HERE
Once upon a time ... Magritte Duane Michals, René Magritte, 1967
René Magritte is world famous for his strange and poetic images. He was born on 21 November 1898 in Lessines, (Hainaut) Belgium. When Magritte is 12 years old, he attends drawing classes above a sweet shop! At 18, because the art of painting seems somehow 'magical', he decides to make this his career and he enrols at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brussels. Georgette and René Magritte, 1922
At 15, Magritte meets Georgette at a fair. A few years later, they meet again and marry. She becomes his favourite model and she lets him stage the scenes where he paints her in all sorts of outfits and in some surprising poses and places. A great complicity unites them throughout their lives!

During his years at the Academy, Magritte meets a lot of other artists who later become hi…
Todos os anos, diversas agências de notícias e de fotografias, selecionam as melhores fotos do ano. Visitando os diversos sites, escolhi algumas que mais me tocaram. Possivelmente não sejam apenas belas, mas me surpreendi com a alta frequência de fotos relacionadas com as mudanças climáticas. Ou foi meu olhar de pesquisadora?
Inicio com uma seção de mundo, natureza, humano...
As paisagens se modificam, com diversos conflitos climáticos! Não pude me esquivar das políticas fascistas em plena ascensão, que coadunam com as catástrofes ecológicas, e que forjam a migração desesperada neste mundo contemporâneo.
Entre territórios e desterritorializações, parece que o poder político dos sexos, racismos, preconceitos e violências promovem a extinção da própria Terra. Contudo, quiçá novas linhas de fuga possibilitem o esperançar do pulsar da VIDA!
Que em 2019, as tribos usem suas máquinas de guerra contra Thanatos. E que os coletivos poéticos consigam emergir com a força de Eros!

The InstallationNOTHING WILL QUITE PREPARE YOU for the setting of LACMA's astonishing new show featuring the works of René Magritte and thirty-one contemporary artists. As Suzanne Muchnic wrote in the Nov. 12 Los Angeles Times, “John Baldessari, a pioneering conceptualist represented in the show, has designed an installation intended to turn the galleries—and visitors' experience—upside down. The entrance will re-create ‘The Unexpected Answer,’ a Magritte painting of a door with a cutout silhouette of a gh…
