Created by Greek artist Danae Stratou and the DAST art team in the mid-90s, this breathtaking land art installation is called “Desert Breath.” It covers 100,000 square meters in the Egyptian desert near the Red Sea, and took several years to create. At its center was a fairly deep pool of water, and the whole project was designed to slowly erode over time.
it’s very frustrating being a girl and trying to flirt with other girls like. you tell them, ur cute. ‘Aw thank you’ no. no i’m being gay with you. homo intended. damn it
I think my eyes fell out of my head and rolled across the floor when I read this confirmation of all of our complaints. (via velocipedestrienne)
Ok, I wasn’t really expecting to sound off on this, BUT: WHEN THE SHOW SPENDS SO MUCH GODDAMN TIME DISPLAYING THE RITUALIZED MURDER OF FEMALES AND CHILDREN AS WELL AS BLATANT MISOGYNY AND DISREGARD FOR THE FEMALE CHARACTERS BROUGHT ON BY ONE OF THE LEADING MALE CHARACTERS, HOW CAN YOU NOT EVEN SPEND A LITTLE BIT MORE TIME FOCUSING ON THE INTERNALIZED MISOGYNY THATS DEEPLY ROOTED IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT? I get the ultimate focus was on Rust and Marty and their relationship apparently, but its still a detective show and when 99% of the victims are female, can we not devote a little bit of time to explaining why that is? Yeah sure, we can spend half the show philosophizing about the cynicism of humanity, but lest we not mention anything about detrimental actions against women. UGH. And the only time the female characters have any agency is at the behest of other male characters to get rid of their already toxic relationships with Marty. I’m not saying that the show shouldn’t portray how women were treated based on setting, but what I can’t accept is to dismiss that they are not integral to the storyline of the show.
I do believe that the show is visually composed magnificently and as a work of film, is some of the most gorgeous cinematography I have ever seen. But aesthetic pleasure cannot dispel how the show portrays the “inferiority” of women and just let it sit there, with no comment.
