Rori's Reblogarama

My art blog can be found at roricomics.tumblr.com. I reblog (not repost) but let me know if anything is mis-attributed. Hope y'all like Doctor Who, comics and feminism!

In his ‘Monuments’ series French photographer Mathieu Bernard-Redmond uses existing economical data charts to render artificial “architectural accidents”.

 “I have been working on this project since 2005. I use financial charts and statistics as basic shapes to produce photographic representations of global economic and ecological concerns. The charts have been modeled using 3D software and are then integrated into my landscape photographs. By turning these curves and sculptural shapes into massive constructions—close to memorials, monumental structures—I intend to reach something beyond data. My purpose is to underline their fundamental link to landscape and thus, to human and natural history,” says Bernard-Reymond.

Canción del Universo 

Somos pequeñitos, inmenso es el universo, tan pequeños 
diminutos como infimos granitos, tan grande y tan 
enorme y tan pequeño es el hombre, es nuestro el 
universo y el sooooooooooooooooool. 

Okay, you’re going to think I’m a weirdo, but this made me cry. Not the sad ‘oh, I’m insignificant, wah’ crying, but the ‘omg so much more than us, so much potential for… everything! It’s beautifully amazing!’ crying.  Just… awesome.

Bully messes with karate champ. [video]

The source video is very, very worth watching. A few things to point out:
The young woman in the dark coat is continually trying to escape from the man. She has spoken to him, she’s pulled away, she’s even tried to walk away before he dragged her back. She hit him as a last resort but it didn’t do anything, he just got more aggressive.
The girl in the white jacket was walking by, recognized that a bad situation was happening, stopped, and intervened. At 0:28 she calls the man out, and continues to call him out until he breaks off attacking the young woman in the dark coat and turns his aggression on her. At which point she defends herself—and then she escorts the young woman in the dark coat safely away.
This is a hero.

Bringing this back.

GIRL POWER

The woman in the white jacket is Olga Ivanova, taekwondo world champion. That kick must have hurt like hell.

Girl protect girl
