When it comes to brilliantly imaginative home decorating, it's certainly a plus to have an renowned artist on hand, a point proved by our Most Loved post this week, a covetable Saul-Steinberg-decorated bathroom from the early 1950s, Loved by photographer Sophie Wedgwood.
“There must be quite a few things that a hot bath won't cure, but I don't know many of them,” Sylvia Plath wrote in her 1963 novel The Bell Jar. And indeed, luxuriating in a steaming bath or refreshing shower, taking a moment to yourself to clean, preen, and wallow to your heart's content, is surely one of life's greatest indulgences. But of course, it is a fairly recent phenomenon that homes come complete with bathrooms and warm, running water or that bathing alone has become the norm.
Renowned for her mass steamrolling of musical instruments and efforts to send meteorites back up into space, British artist Cornelia Parker has intrigued and engaged audiences for years with her hugely innovative pieces – predominantly sculptures and installations. Working with everyday objects, frequently reimagined via acts of destruction or alteration, Parker creates thought-provoking artworks that meditate on the frailty of our existence.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
