Miranda. 22. Useless wastrel who daydreams in sequins, comic book expressions and musical numbers.
Prone to posting feminist quotes, various and varying babes, items of the literary and comic nerd culture and the more than occasional tentacle.
Any reaction images/gifs I post (unless they are of my face) are almost definitely not mine.
“We didn’t have any paints in the house when I was younger, but I would do collage. I would collect advertisements, rip them up, and then paste them together. That was the beginning of it. After that, I did photography, and then painting and sculpting. I began to realise how important it is to express yourself, and not be afraid of making mistakes – as mistakes often make something special and unique.” — Lucy Liu

I was thinking about a delinquent girl dating game where you play as a ditzy gyaru girl and can choose to date three of the up and coming sukeban of your all girl’s school
I’m sad to be leaving the IMA, but thrilled to announce my new project: THE ART ASSIGNMENT. It’s a video series produced by PBS Digital Studios that will focus on the creative process and the act of making, and I’ll be the curator and host of it.
While the videos will live on PBS and YouTube, we’ll be using tumblr a lot, too, and will encourage you to upload your executions of various art assignments here, so please follow The Art Assignment on tumblr.
I’m really looking forward to making this a great project, and to sharing it with you in a few short months.
I am so so excited for Sarah and for PBS. And for me, because I’ll get to travel with her and meet artists and so art assignments.
omg this looks so fun!Via John Green's tumblr
Javier Pérez: En Puntas (2013)
Video installation of variable measurements comprising:
Sculpture: pointe shoes, stainless steel knives
Video projection: HD blu-ray, with sound, screened on a wall
A ballerina, whose pointe shoes are extended by a set of sharp kitchen knives, dances and twirls insistently until reaching exhaustion, fighting to maintain balance on the lid of a grand piano set on a stage. The theatre with its red velvet warm lighting, resembles an oversized music box. The camera turns around the dancer revealing the opposite side of the room: an empty and painfully bare theatre.
The ballerina appears as an eerie figure expressing effort, sacrifice and pain in her strive for perfection. Both fragile and cruel. Initially shy and hesitant, her steps become more and more emphatic, menacing and not exempt of violence, scraping and cutting into the delicate surface of the piano with her sharp pointe shoes.
Through this work, Javier Perez investigates and reflects once again upon the human condition. Using a strongly metaphorical language rich in powerful symbolism, he reveals the weaknesses that become the boundaries between seemingly irreconcilable concepts such as: beauty and cruelty, fragility and violence, culture and nature or life and death.
The video is actually terrifying omg
THAT IS COOL.
