skunkbear:

A couple months ago I shared some GIFs of invisible things, and I finally got around to putting them together in this video:

When light travels through areas of different air density, it bends. You’ve probably noticed the way distant pavement seems to shimmer on a hot day, or the way stars appear to twinkle. You’re seeing light that has been distorted as it passes through varying air densities, which are in turn created by varying temperatures and pressures.

Schlieren Flow Visualization can be used to visually capture these changes in density: the rising heat from a candle, the turbulence around an airplane wing, the plume of a sneeze … even sound.  Special thanks to Mike Hargather, a professor of mechanical engineering at New Mexico Tech, who kindly provided a lot of these videos.

"Lekker indrukbaar" is a project about my body and how I sometimes am dissatisfied with it.

To hide the parts of my body I feel insecure about I take certain postures to cover them up. But by assuming these postures I in fact draw attention to these body parts.
The space between my breasts when I cross my arms, the space between my stomach and my crossed legs; these opening in my closed postures are casted in bronze.
By wearing these bronze objects I force myself in these comforting postures that, in contrary with their intention, emphasize my vulnerabilities.

| HONEST BODIES |
Presented by the Office of Government & Community Affairs and organized by independent curator/CCNY alum Zachary Frater, Honest Bodies is a diverse program highlighting artwork and writing by young queer artists of color and allies. The focal point of the program is the Windows on Amsterdam Gallery, where the curator, together with the artists and writers, collaborated to create a space that not only showcases the artworks, but creates a context for dialoguing about the most controversial, most sacred, most intuitive parts of ourselves: our bodies. 

| STATEMENT |
For many reasons—because we experience the world first through our bodies—because the body is often a private and sacred realm—because our bodies are so often misinterpreted and misconstrued in harmful ways, we were concerned with creating a space where visitors can engage in honest conversation (or movement) about our skin. We wanted to talk about awkward hookups, video game fantasies, bad porn, and not necessarily feel any type of way about it. 

The aim of Honest Bodies is to uncover the different ways that young LGBTQ folk of color have learned to come to terms with and accept their physical bodies at the same time that we handle the everyday realities of discrimination and social control. It is a gathering of individuals who, either through the honesty and immediacy of their work, or through their everyday life practice, strive sincerely to achieve oneness with others. It is our hope that Honest Bodies will open us up, and make us available to one another so that together we can build communities based in trust, understanding, and creativity always.

Remy Ma “Conceited” 

I remember around the time this song came out a male rapper was being interviewed on a radio station (can’t remember exactly who it was) and he came out and said Remy Ma wasn’t all that cute to be talking about she conceited. And that is exactly why this song was needed. Too many people believe in order for a woman to have confidence, or even dare to be conceited, she needs to look a certain way. Remy Ma said fuck all that, you gotta look in the mirror and tell yourself you look good. Own it and don’t let anyone tell you shit.

Vanessa Omoregie’s CamGirls Project

CamGirls is an ongoing investigative project that looks at the female image, with themes that question beauty, the way in which women are perceived, ideas of censorship and how the internet and technology have had an effect on this. Starting with the instruction “copy this pose” the project is an interactive piece that allows submissions of selfies along with new thoughts and interpretations on the term “Cam Girl”

Don’t miss Excerpts from a ~* selfie generation *~ @ Gal Space, 25th October in East London!

To celebrate the feminine and feminist presence in digital art, Gal proudly presents Vanessa Omoregie’s legendary CamGirls Project together with new ascii artwork from Beth Siveyer. For the first time, these projects are going offline for us to be challenged and explored in a physical gallery space.
