Colossal

Janet Harling, one of our artist advisors from Sweden, was in town and drew our attention to this remarkable site for art and visual culture.

She uses it extensively in her lectures and workshops, which she delivers to 'soon to be' art teachers, and has been waxing lyrical about the remarkable content on the site.  Launched in 2010, it has been nominated for a "Webby" (sort of the Oscar of the web world).  We took a quick look and are completely hooked.  So much so that we have already ordered a book, which was being featured, and spent far too much time wandering around the sections.  Perhaps it should be in our 'distractions' section.

That said, have a look: www.thisiscolossal.com there is certainly something which will prompt you to wonder.  We really like this building in Margate, by British designer Alex Chinneck:
