Tumblr HQ Update: HACK DAY! 

Queen Bey drops by, Hack Day passes into hack night, offline hacking (a.k.a. thwacking), its grisly aftermath. 

I want my office to be like this.

So this one time Regina was totally going to punch Sibylle of Cleves in the face, so she had Lucas Cranach the Elder paint her an after portrait.

Joël Andrianomerisoa

Country: Madagascar

Style: Textile Installation

Jardin Sentimental (Sentimental Garden): textile installation (cotton, plastic), 8x5 m, 2013, © Patrice Sour, courtesy Revue Noire, Paris.

Joël Andrianomerisoa’s Sentimental Garden plays on the fragility and lightness of life, the tangible and the intangible, the eternal and the ephemeral. Huge piece of black fabric, exposed to the weather, the Sentimental Garden is to the test of passions like love is subjected to the drama of existence. Admittedly architect, it is not the rational character of the artist who takes over in the creation of the work but the emotion that defines the work. It is the artist’s secret garden labyrinth that invites the visitor to enter, while pushing back as the wind swells the cloth. Game of impossible love, the visitor must penetrate burglary to find himself invaded both emotionally and spatially. Phenomenon particularly disturbing as the visitor cannot really define this work. Is it a tapestry, facade, architecture, border? No matter, because the work is not meant to be locked in the shackles of determination or rational interpretation. Only silence and delicate caress of the work, driven by the wind is enough to make sense.

Andrianomearisoa was born in Antananarivo, Madagascar, in 1977. He left Madagascar for Paris when he was 19 in order to further his studies at the Ecole Spéciale d’Architecture.

In recent years, countries which have experienced insurgencies, wars, conflicts and internal turbulence, record that the most devastating impacts of these crises are experienced by children, girls and young women who are left vulnerable to extensive attacks and dehumanizing conditions.

The abducted young girls are being affected by a conflict they did not create, and their voices need to be heard. It can only be imagined what they have undergone in these past weeks or what they are bring subjected to at hand.

Please join us on Saturday, May 3rd, 2014 in Union Square for a prayer and to bring awareness so that this situation can be given the right level of coverage in international media. These 234 girls need to be found and returned to the safety of their families and homes.

I think if Dickens was alive today, he’d have been working for the BBC, until HBO offered him much more money.
