1. A Closer Look at Archeo: Josh Kline’s “Skittles”



    Josh Kline’s “Skittles,” part of the group exhibition Archeo, is an industrial refrigerator containing smoothies produced by the artist using unconventional and poetic combinations of ingredients, including kale chips, squid ink, sneakers, phone bills, and pepper spray. Each smoothie stands as a portrait of a different contemporary lifestyle. When grouped together, they evoke a landscape of aspiration, taste, and – at times – deprivation in a metropolis like New York City.

    a muggleborn student gets called a mudblood, so they lick their hand and wipe it on the pureblood’s face, singing “got mud on your face, you big disgrace, somebody better put you back into your place”

    all the muggleborns in the vicinity immediately go *STOMP STOMP CLAP* repeatedly gettting closer and closer to the pureblood

    and the pureblood’s like “holy shit is this some muggle damning ritual or something AM I GOING TO HELL I’M SORRY”

    high school friends are basically people who agree to survive together and it’s sort of like they’re your crew in a zombie apocalypse and after the apocalypse is over somehow you go on to living life and maybe occasionally you’d run into each other and be like “oh yes i see you still haven’t been eaten by zombies that is good” but you no longer have the need to survive together so that thing tying you to these people is just gone

    Master glassblower and stained glass artist Loren Stump in California has wowed the internet with an extraordinary display of virtuosity. He created a “loaf” of glass, called murrine, out of carefully layered glass rods that, when sliced, reveal a painstakingly detailed work of art in cross-section.

    "The most impressive thing about his work is that the resulting image can only be seen in its entirety after the murrini is cut…"

  6. One teacher’s approach to preventing gender bullying in a classroom


    "It’s Okay to be Neither," By Melissa Bollow Tempel

    Alie arrived at our 1st-grade classroom wearing a sweatshirt with a hood. I asked her to take off her hood, and she refused. I thought she was just being difficult and ignored it. After breakfast we got in line for art, and I noticed that she still had not removed her hood. When we arrived at the art room, I said: “Allie, I’m not playing. It’s time for art. The rule is no hoods or hats in school.”

    She looked up with tears in her eyes and I realized there was something wrong. Her classmates went into the art room and we moved to the art storage area so her classmates wouldn’t hear our conversation. I softened my tone and asked her if she’d like to tell me what was wrong.

    “My ponytail,” she cried.

    “Can I see?” I asked.

    She nodded and pulled down her hood. Allie’s braids had come undone overnight and there hadn’t been time to redo them in the morning, so they had to be put back in a ponytail. It was high up on the back of her head like those of many girls in our class, but I could see that to Allie it just felt wrong. With Allie’s permission, I took the elastic out and re-braided her hair so it could hang down.

    “How’s that?” I asked.

    She smiled. “Good,” she said and skipped off to join her friends in art.

    Eye makeup by Tom Pecheux at Anthony Vaccarello Fall/Winter 2014

    During a last-minute trip to the dentist, makeup artist Tom Pecheux was struck by an unexpected source of inspiration: dental floss.

    "That same morning before going to the fitting I had an appointment with the dentist, and I was sitting in the dentist’s chair, and I was like, ‘Ah, yes—floss,’" Pecheux said.

    Scrapping the idea he had previously discussed with designer Anthony Vaccarello, Pecheux decided to go for a “very graphic, very arty” look inspired by the red and black pieces in the fall collection.

    To get the look, Pecheux prepped models’ eyelids with powder before coating a strand of floss wrapped tightly around his fingers with Estée Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Envious and pressing it above the top and bottom lashes. He repeated the process using Double Wear Zero-Smudge Liquid Eyeliner in black to frame the red lines. Lashes were curled, but left bare, and brows were only slightly defined to complete the look.
