  • nathaniel…now I could be wrong but I imagine your picture here is a hand slapping an X chromosome…am I close? Any other guesses? P.S. i must have the paper planes. Esp, after the last post on it about a month or two ago.

    The first Caitlin Gallupe reminds me of the cover of “Fear And Loathing in Las Vegas”

Artist Makes Street Repairs Using Gold

Brooklyn-based artist Rachel Sussman adapts the Japanese art of Kintsugi (golden joinery) or Kintsukuroi (golden repair) in her ongoing series “Sidewalk Kintsukuroi.” Traditionally used to fix broken pottery, gold or silver is used to embellish the repair as it is seen as part of the object’s history rather than something to hide.

In Sussman’s case, filling cracks in the pavement pays similar homage to the changes that have taken place in the world around us. See more images from the project below or on display at the Des Moines Art Center until May 5th.

The questions ranged from the kind of software they use most on their computers to how easily they feel insecure in love. See more from “Asian Girls Insecure” below.
