I'm sure we've all been in situations where we're left wondering what exactly the side-show contortionist we've hastily bedded is trying to achieve as she vaults across the room via the chandelier (what can I say, the décor at my house is a little pretentious!). Let's face it; it doesn't always quite go to plan. I for one have ended up in many an unladylike position, some of which have ended painfully; not a heartbroken sobbing wreck, but more like concertinaed into the splits and wedged between a wall and a bed.
No Globes: Miniature power plant spews a cloud of black pollution when shaken This limited edition snow globe titled “No Globes” was designed by UK-based collective Dorothy to protest the construction of coal-fired power stations back in 2009. Instead of the usual happy snow globe scene with pristine white snow particles, there’s a power plant spewing a cloud of black pollution. Via Who Killed Bambi BACK TO THE FUTURE : Irina Werning - Photographer I love old photos. I admit being a nosey photographer. As soon as I step into someone else’s house, I start sniffing for them. Most of us are fascinated by their retro look but to me, it’s imagining how people would feel and look like if they were to reenact them today… Two years ago, I decided to actually do this. So, with my camera, I started inviting people to go back to their future.. Now its time for KOREA, TAIWAN AND TOKYO.
Tanganyika laughter epidemic The Tanganyika laughter epidemic of 1962 was an outbreak of mass hysteria – or mass psychogenic illness (MPI) – rumored to have occurred in or near the village of Kashasha on the western coast of Lake Victoria in the modern nation of Tanzania (formerly Tanganyika) near the border of Kenya. The laughter epidemic began on January 30, 1962, at a mission-run boarding school for girls in Kashasha. The laughter started with three girls and spread haphazardly throughout the school, affecting 95 of the 159 pupils, aged 12–18. Symptoms lasted from a few hours to 16 days in those affected.
ATTRITION 1: thomas devaux An aureole of light, blonde locks, chiselled haloes, robes of feathers...figures that are almost heavenly emerge from these disparate elements - fortuitous images that caught the eye of the photographer during an opening exhibition - and the magic with which they have been assembled: ethereal compositions in a dreamlike world. Delicately arranged, these arms, legs and head, all from different bodies selected by Thomas Devaux in a kind of photographic poaching, give the illusion of autonomous individuals enveloped in a hazy atmosphere. These fictional figures - a woman clasping a gaunt male, or supporting him, aided by a macabre companion crowned with a halo - can evoke grand themes from Christian iconography: the Descent from the Cross, the Entombment, Pietà and so on. Thus, from these few trivial or mundane images, the motif of the mother mourning her son emerges - the archetype of pain in Western painting. Yet these references emerge and meet in an original creation without pastiche.
