 Manal Al Dowayan’s installation illustrates Saudi women’s struggle for freedom

“Suspended Together” is an installation that gives the impression of movement and freedom. However, a closer look at the 200 doves allows the viewer to realize that the doves are actually frozen and suspended with no hope of flight. An even closer look shows that each dove carries on its body a permission document that allows a Saudi woman to travel. Notwithstanding their circumstances, all Saudi women are required to have this document, issued by their appointed male guardian. 


I’m still figuring out what I’m doing here. 

But I write things sometimes.

A Step By Step Guide through Jared Leto's Trans Ignorance.

transhollywood:

Jared Leto has been winning multiple awards for playing the transgender character of Rayon in the film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The transgender community has then watched him throw them under the bus.

1. LETO: "It was the role of a lifetime," he said. "It was an incredible thing to represent this…

"Every time you use waffle words, back off from a clear statement of values and priorities and most of all, think about what’s likely instead of what’s possible, you are selling yourself out. Not just selling yourself out, but doing it too cheaply. Own your dreams. There is no better way to make them happen."

Ceramic Sculpture Art by Christopher David White

“For me, there is a peace that can be found in even the simplest things – a decaying piece of wood, rusted metal, crumbling brick, the growth of moss and lichen. These ordinary elements within our environments offer both visual and physical reminders of our connection with nature. I am inspired by the small, overlooked aspects of our environment, finding enjoyment in the unexpected discoveries that come from simply being observant of the minutia and incorporating those mundane forms into my work.”

This impeccably detailed ceramic sculpture called Cycles of Decay was created by ceramicist Artist.
Even on close inspection the knotted and twisting veins of the tree branch look almost exactly like old wood.

Giant Crochet Doilies overflow the walls by Ashley V. Blalock

Lying on a side table, a lace doily is a symbol of refinement and femininity. Change the scale of that doily and add them to other giant sized doilies and suddenly the mass of crochet takes on an overpowering and even threatening air. In “Keeping Up Appearances”  Southern California based artist Ashley V. Blalock built an ongoing, site-specific installation project where she strings up enormous crochet doilies in spider-web form throughout different gallery spaces.
