Projection on the Bridge - Immersive Surfaces - As Above, So Below

A one of a kind public art experience, a projection mapping installation for multiple surfaces and multiple dimensions. .

Unfolding like an animated modern Botticelli painting, flowing above our heads and spreading outwards in every direction, “As Above, So Below” immersed viewers in the architecture of the Manhattan Bridge.

No One Is Illegal UK campaigns for the total abolition of immigration controls.


I think this is important.  Puts the shoe on the other foot.  Makes you think doesn't it?

Killing Us Softly 4: Advertising's Image of Women

I'M TIRED OF WOMEN BEING OBJECTIFIED AND USED AS PROPS.  NO ONE LOOKS LIKE THE PICTURES YOU SEE.  TAKE A CLOSE AT ADVERTS AND THEY DON'T EVEN HAVE PORES.  THIS IS A MUST SEE FOR ALL WOMEN.

The Wonder that is Patrick Henry Hughes

I love this
Patrick Henry Hughes has been blind and crippled from birth but he prefers that you focus more on his abilities than his disabilities. You see, Patrick is an absolutely amazing musician. Learn how, through his fathers sacrifice, Henry has been able to live a happy and exceptional life.


What an exceptional dad he has. Moves my soul to see such selflessness. The world needs more people like these two!

Shit Girls Say - Episode 1

This is so funny.

Suicide?

Horrible topic, but people often feel depressed over the holidays and wonder whether to end it all. Many do. If you are feeling depressed, there is help available. You may feel like you are alone and nobody is as bad a person as you are, or is as hard done by as you are, and you are right that you are unique and special and feel bad in unique and special ways. But you are not unique in feeling alone and hurting and feeling that life is not worth it.

If you are feeling disconnected from others, if you feel isolated even when people are around you trying to help, you are not alone, others have felt alone and apart just like you. There is a way back, there is a way to connect with people again.

Others have felt what you are feeling and have gotten through it with help. You can get help too. You can get through it, you can be happy again.

If you are contemplating suicide, do not feel embarassed. Do not feel you will be branded for the rest of your life. Do not fear being shamed. Simply call 1-800-273-TALK (8255). In Canada 1-800-448-1833. In the UK dial 08457 90 90 90. In the Republic of Ireland dial 1850 60 90 90. In Australia, call 13 11 14. You will talk to someone.

They will listen. I know you want to be heard. Let them hear you. Let them listen. Call them now.

4 Ways the New Twitter Is Taking on Facebook



Twitter once differentiated itself as an “information network” while Facebook defined itself as the “social graph.” But just as Facebook added real-time features that make it look more like Twitter, Twitter has inched into its competitor’s turf.
