Paige Bradley’s Expansion

via notcot
Paige Bradley’s artist statement on her sculpture Expansion, “From the moment we are born, the world tends to have a container already built for us to fit inside: A social security number, a gender, a race, a profession or an I.Q. I ponder if we are more defined by the container we are in, rather than what we are inside. Would we recognize ourselves if we could expand beyond our bodies?  Would we still be able to exist if we were authentically ‘un-contained’?”
More images of Expansion can be found here.

Don’t Fear the Internet

“…Jessica Hische and Russ Maschmeyer have started a wonderful little site explaining to beginners what production for the web is all about. Young designers, take heed: this is not optional information. It’s rare that a web shop would be willing to hire a designer who has no idea how HTML/CSS and JavaScript work together. Friendly and easy to understand, these guides are a good place to start.”
