The most common ding I give to RPG admins looking for a critique or review from me is the use of serif fonts in their themes. I hope this clears up any confusion as to why serif fonts are obnoxious as hell to read and will make me (and other potential applicants) want to click away from your blog without even attempting to read a thing.

The original infographic can be found here.

Japanese artist and student Takayuki Hori created this awesome (and award-winning) series of eight translucent origami skeletal animals entitled Oritsunagumono, which translates to mean ‘things folded and connected’.

Printed on translucent paper, each piece represents an endangered species native to Japan’s coastal waterways and contains a foreign object inside their body - human-made detritus - representing the environmental threats faced by these animals. They are hauntingly beautiful memento mori for fragile wildlife struggling to cope in a hazardous ecosystem.

This Too Shall Pass (2012) by Tomorrow Machine

Independent packaging project for perishable goods:

Is it reasonable that it takes several years for a milk carton to decompose naturally, when the milk goes sour after a week? This Too Shall Pass is a series of food packaging were the packaging has the same short life-span as the foods they contain. The package and its content is working in symbiosis.

Smoothie package
Gel of the agar agar seaweed and water are the only components used to make this package. To open it you pick the top. The package will wither at the same speed as its content. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated, fresh juice, smoothies and cream for example.

Rice Package
Package made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like a fruit. The package is designed to contain dry goods, for example grains and rice.

Oil package
A package made of caramelized sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax do no longer protect the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

I’m a bit upset people call him Avdol. It’s not a name that exists in Arabic, and even less Abdul on its own.You can’t just be named Abdul when you are Egyptian and born there and raised there. I know the name exists, but not as an Arab living in the Arabic world, and I’ll tell you why. It’s gotta be Muhammed Abdul-Something"Abdul" comes from the arabic "عبد" "Abdu" which means Servant (Of). The "L" means "The". So his name can’t just be Muhammed Servant-Of-The.Since he is named after the prophet, I’d say he’s Muhammed Abdallah, which is a very common name and means “Muhammed Servant Of God”tl;dr arab people are underrepresented and misrepresented but I love Muhammed he is cute as fuckedit:>why it being a reference to Paula Abdul is not relevant and still problematic / why Abdul is a problematic name for a character born and raised in an Arab speaking country

#THE AESTHETIC 

Zack Seckler

Absolutely beautiful images from Botswana, the colours and patterns are breath taking. It’s so easy to forget how incredible nature can be.  7

‘Being above the ground at such low elevations, and having the ability to precisely maneuver, was like gliding over an enormous painting and being able to create brushstrokes at will. As soon as I saw the landscape from above I knew there was potential to create a special body of work.’

The British Library: A 10,000 book installation by British-Nigerian artist tackles immigration 

As part of this year’s HOUSE, Brighton’s festival of visual art and domestic space Yinka Shonibare MBE has created The British Library, a 10,000 book installation exploring the impact of immigration on British culture. 

The work, co-commissioned by HOUSE and the Brighton Festival, makes its home in the confines of the Old Reference Library at the Brighton Museum and Art Gallery.

The books are all bound in Shonibare’s trademark African Dutch wax batik fabric and are housed in the library’s original wood bookcases.

The exhibit:

responds to both sides of the immigration debate, both for and against. Printed in gold foil on the spines of 3,500 of the books are the names of notable British immigrants who throughout history have made significant contributions to British culture and society, including those opposed to immigration.

Yinka Shonibare, a British-Nigerian artist living in London, said, “Whilst the installation is a celebration of the ongoing contributions made to British society by people who have arrived here from other parts of the world or whose ancestors came to Britain as immigrants, it does not exclude the points of view of those who object to it. The British Library is inspired by the current debates about immigration and the public response to the new presence of Romanians in Britain”.
