Portraits Of Extreme Plastic Surgery, Done In Classical Style (NSFW) There are two ways most people interpret A New Kind Of Beauty, a book of photographs by Phillip Toledano that documents proponents of extreme cosmetic surgery. First, there’s revulsion: “the expected ‘Holy shit! These people look crazy,’ which definitely isn’t the point of the work,” the British photographer tells Slate. “And then there are hopefully some people who understand the point I’m making about the direction we’re headed.” It’s also easy to feel a bit of both. For many, plastic surgery is a tool that can be used to reveal someone’s true identity. Still, the photographer is quick to point out that there’s a whole spectrum of reasons--good and bad--why people modify their bodies surgically. So are these photographs of early adopters? Head over to Slate for the whole story, or buy A New Kind Of Beauty here.

REED + RADER: Pamela Reed and Matthew Rader SHOWcabinet: Prosthetics exhibition Fetishistic suits of armour, orthopaedic braces and wearable tusks all feature in an exhibition of prosthetics at the SHOWcabinet space in London (+ movie). Curated by Niamh White and Carrie Scott of fashion film website SHOWstudio, the exhibition opened on Thursday and contains pieces intended to enhance, protect or deform the body. The name of the showcase derives from the Ancient Greek word "prosthesis", which means "to add", but the collection also incorporates the modern understanding of prosthetics as replacement limbs. Above: Fragmented Figure by Úna Burke Designer Úna Burke created original pieces for the show made from leather straps joined with rivets, which encase limbs like a suit of armour. Above: RE.TREAT #4 by Úna Burke A black leather outfit is made up of one piece that covers the neck, arms and shoulders, and another that fits over the legs up to the waist, leaving the chest and abdomen exposed.

Pierre Fudarylí Pierre Fudaryli© – The Tale of Chaos And Nix And The Creation of Night Pierre Fudarylí nace en noviembre de 1984 en la ciudad de Cancún Quintana Roo, México. Desde muy pequeño comienza su interés por las artes visuales, estudiando de manera independiente a los grandes maestros de la pintura. A los 11 años intenta tomar clases de pintura, sin embargo abandona la empresa porque no era libre de desarrollar su libre intelecto, ya que estaba sometido al prejuicio de un mediocre maestro.

Home : Schoony the nu project Mais do que um projeto de arte, The Nu Project é um projeto social. Confiantes, corajosas e seguras, estas mulheres mostram que assumir sua beleza é um compromisso humano. Todas as mulheres são bonitas. Essa é a ideia central do The Nu Project, do fotógrafo americano Matt Blum que, desde 2005, já fotografou mais de 100 mulheres absolutamente naturais, normais, comuns. Mais de 1500 já se inscreveram. Em suas atividades do dia a dia, de jornalistas a engenheiras, todas elas, sem photoshop ou truques profissionais, minimamente maquiadas, são retratadas segundo suas personalidades, estilos e peculiaridades. Em novembro, a equipe do The Nu Project estará no Brasil para realizar ensaios com mulheres voluntárias no Rio de Janeiro, em São Paulo e Belo Horizonte. Mais do que um projeto de arte, The Nu Project é um projeto social. O depoimento de uma participante especial: A dica foi da Bárbara no Facebook. Update: A Gabriela Silva já falou do projeto aqui no Obvious. Os melhores artigos por e-mail

El Cuerpo; Un recorrido por los textos de Jacques Lacan © PSIKEBA Con Freud lo que es del orden del inconsciente no es del orden del cuerpo, sin embargo parece que el inconsciente no está sin relación al cuerpo. El concepto más ilustrativo de esta condición fue aquel acuñado por él y al que denominó Pulsión ( trieb ). Casi todas las aristas del concepto tienen su referente en el cuerpo. Ya sea por el costado de la fuente , es decir las zonas erógenas, de las que nos dice “ por fuente de la pulsión se entiende aquel proceso somático que se localiza en un órgano o en una parte del cuerpo y cuya excitación está representada en la vida psíquica por la pulsión ” ; lo encontramos igualmente, cuando habla del fin de la pulsión o bien, cuando se refiere al objeto de la misma, del que podemos decir cuando de su parcialidad se trata, que es un objeto directamente vinculado al cuerpo, el pecho, el pene, etc..
