Confessions

Confessions
2012 Las Vegas, NV Interactive gallery installation in The Cosmopolitan that invites people to anonymously share their confessions and see the confessions of the people around them in the heart of the Las Vegas strip. Amidst casinos, restaurants and bars, Chang invited passersby to write confessions on wooden plaques in the privacy of confession booths. Chang arranged the anonymous plaques on the gallery walls like a Shinto shrine prayer wall, painted select responses on 4’x4’ canvases, and orchestrated the space with an original score by Oliver Blank. The project explored the design of safe spaces for anonymity, vulnerability, understanding, and consolation. Inspired by Japanese Shinto shrines, Post Secret, and Catholicism. 2012, Las Vegas, NV.

Top 10 Tools For Managing Your Social Media Accounts Attempting to juggle each and every one of your social media accounts can be tricky, scary and time-consuming. For example, while you’re busy updating your Facebook status, you might have forgotten to favorite a tweet. Speaking of tweets, when is the best time to send one out to followers? Ugh. It can seriously give you a migraine. Thankfully, we live in a world and time where developers are rectifying that problem! Daring Artist 'Sleeps' On Strangers In Poetic Subway Project The project began in 2012, when Ferrandi decided to change or reshape the way she experienced a subway ride. She began by catching a ride on a crowded subway, during the evening rush hour, and nabbed a seat next to a fellow traveller. From there she embarked on a mental and emotional experiment of "resculpting" the space between her body and a stranger's, transforming what she considered a stiff and restricted space into a malleable, inviting distance by resting her head on that person's shoulder.

RELATEDOnce Upon a Time‘s Rocky Rumbelle and More Burning Qs Answered In the wake of the resurrection of Maleficent, a saucy sorceress who many felt had been unjustly jettisoned way back in Season 1, TVLine took stock of other characters whose potential was left untapped, and who, if among the living/mostly dead, could still bring a certain spark to life in never-quiet Storybrooke. Review our countdown below, then weigh in on the gone-too-soon characters you’d most like to see be given a second chance.

Y-chromosomal Adam In human genetics, Y-chromosomal Adam (Y-MRCA) is a hypothetical name given to the most recent common ancestor (MRCA) from whom all currently living people are descended patrilineally (tracing back only along the paternal or male lines of their family tree). However, the title is not permanently fixed on a single individual (see below). Y-chromosomal Adam is named after the biblical Adam, but the bearer of the chromosome was not the only human male alive during his time.[1] His other male contemporaries could also have descendants alive today, but not, by definition, solely through patrilineal descent. Analogous to Y-chromosomal Adam, Mitochondrial Eve is the woman from whom all living humans are descended matrilineally, who lived about 140,000 to 200,000 years ago in Africa. The estimate is based on inherited mtDNA though mothers. Definition[edit]
