This is actually so legit.
It’s so stupid how people actually think that a woman’s period would make her completely irrational so that she cannot be in a position of power.
I LOLED SO HARD AT THIS

The ultimate art history poster!

I’m currently revising for my art history exams that are next week. This is the ultimate revision poster, right? I’ve decided that one of my tactics is to impress examiners by referring to Picasso using his full name, Pablo Diego José Francisco de Paula Juan Nepomuceno María de los Remedios Cipriano de la Santísima Trinidad Ruiz y Picasso. It’ll work, right? I can’t wait to be finished. It’s my birthday on Thursday and I can’t even get excited!
Alejandro Cartagena - The Car Poolers (2012)
“A bridge is situated on a highway that goes from the Mexican city of Nuevo Laredo — across the United States border in Laredo, Texas — due south to Monterrey. In the winter early-morning hours, Cartagena stood there, pointing his lens down at the passing cars, like a distracted spy.
He was peeking into the backs of the pickup trucks, where construction workers pile together on their way to earn an honest living. Car Poolers is an effort to peer inside these tiny worlds that straddle public and private.”
Knitting inspiration for today, courtesy of my renewed search for a visual representation of quantum time: fractals.
Love the colorwork on the top and bottom left. Like continents of color.
Angles Mirror by Daniel Rozin
Interactive installation using a triangular method of representation with a motorized array:
The “Angles Mirror” rejects the idea of building a picture based on relative lightness and darkness. Instead, it explores a system of linear rotation that indicates the direction of an object’s contour. A wall-mounted sculpture, the “Angles Mirror” is a sharp triangular block of steel, dotted with yellow indicator arms that pivot. Based on the isometric grid, its structure favors the patterns and angles found in an equilateral triangle. The arms, which do not have the ability to change brightness or luminosity, use input from a camera and reconstruct the view with areas of varying angles. The negative space surrounding a viewer is translated into horizontal lines on the picture plane. Rather than creating a photorealistic image, the three-dimensional movement of a figure is represented, visualizing optical flow as viewer’s proximity to the sculpture changes. A nuanced contour results, as the viewer shifts back and forth, altering how the structure of space is perceived. Similar to “Fan Mirror”, in the “Angles Mirror”, the sequence of movement across the picture plane is directed in part by its audience. When the viewer walks away from the work, or chooses to view the sculpture from a distance, a series of predefined images and transitions cover the object’s surface.
