A few of the people involved in School of Doodle, a “peer-to-peer, self-directed learning lab dedicated to activating girls’ imaginations through entertainment, education and community.”
ICYMI; this is the project I’m helping out on. Talk about an awesome cause! (thx kickstarter for the <3!)
School of Doodle is “dedicated to activating girls’ imaginations through entertainment, education and community.” There are some truly amazing/inspiring ladies involved (and a few good men).
I hope you’ll take a minute right now to check it out. In my humble opinion, it’s for a very, very good cause.
FRESH FROM THE OCEAN. FRESH FROM THE POT.
work in progress.
"Just as opposing the policies of Obama or George W. Bush don’t ipso facto make a person “against America,” there is nothing intrinsically anti-Israel about opposing the Netanyahu government’s military ventures, and anyone who suggests otherwise is engaging in pretty transparently fallacious reasoning. The notion that one must take sides in order to assess this conflict critically is infantile, and stymies the kind of inquiry that we would apply to almost any other contentious subject."
Funny enough, I *strongly* opposed the policies of George W Bush from the very beginning of the aftermath of 9/11, AND at the same time considered myself deeply patriotic. And still do. But that was an insanely unpopular position at the time. ESPECIALLY in the media. You were either WITH US OR AGAINST US. That simple phrase sums up so much of what is wrong with politics and ideologues these days. Which is not to say that pansying around in the grey area is better. But maybe it is.
We need more nuance. We need more time to learn to understand each other. We need more mental space and sometimes physical space to love each other more fully. We need to stop listening to the voices that hold us in fear (so they we will be compelled to buy things to allay these fears). And, I say “we” but I really mean “me.” This is as much a personal note as anything. Short of offering any practical, actual, concrete action or art or THING, I’m just another ideologue. But I’ll get through it to something. Stay tuned. Things will be made. Actions taken. And so on and so forth.
So yeah, there’s that…
Spectacular food packaging decays with its contents
Swedish design studio Tomorrow Machine believes that the relationship between food and packaging should be symbiotic, with containers surviving only as long as their contents. In a vividly colored series entitled “This Too Shall Pass,” the company showcases three items, each of which looks more like an ornament than a household product.
Yes please more of this thank you!
