George Atherton: Sensual Digital Artist And Legendary Penn State President

If you do anything today, please search for the beloved former Penn State president George Atherton on Google images (warning: slightly NSFW).

A whopping 37 photos of what can only be described as sensual and spiritual digital art appear before there’s even one picture of our university’s legendary leader.

 Ah, finally. Smack dab in the middle, fitting right in.

Atherton (the artist, not the man who helped turn Penn State into a nationally respected university) calls his art Geoglyphiks. He describes it further on his Facebook page. “I work with visions of a harmonious, ecologically thriving world and Awakened states of being, in the hope that viewers of my work will joyfully manifest these states of being in their own lives. A truly open Internet makes it possible to share creative inspiration with vast numbers of people through the arts.”

Well, George “Geo” Atherton, you’ve proved that it really is “a truly open internet,” and this viewer has certainly joyfully manifested these photos into her own life.
