"I become attached to people I shouldn’t. I distance myself from the people who matter. I am bad with people. I am good at being alone. But I hate being lonely."-P.P. (via heksen)
From where a drone operator’s sitting, one blurry blob of pixels looks almost exactly like the next blurry blob of pixels, which is how the term “bug splat” worked its way into modern military slang as a way of referring to a kill. Now, though, a giant art installation in Pakistan wants to show drone operators that its people are anything but anonymous white blobs—and that that “bug splat” belongs to an actual human being.
“'Experimental Relationship' flips the image of masculine power on its head, turning the woman into the purveyor of control through poses, gestures and interactions between two parts of a couple, all caught on film. In the photos, Moro (Liao’s boyfriend) can be seen as the submissive party — directed, managed and laid bare (quite literally) by Liao.
With captions like “You don’t have to be a boy to be my boyfriend” and the seemingly facetious “Relationships work best when each partner knows their proper place,” Liao disrupts our gendered expectations and creates a beautiful examination of passion and sexual connection along the way.”
Dorothy is an art collective consisting of “like-minded people working on unlike-minded ideas.” Dorothy has worked on numerous diverse projects over the years from conception to completion winning several awards from Design Week, D&AD, and New York Festivals among others. Their “Casualties of War” series are tiny sculptures, but exceptionally powerful. Highlighting the personal hell and anguish experienced by returning soldiers (and their families), Dorothy creates their own version of toy soldiers that captures the turmoil that they face from the devastating effects of war.
