"The most important kind of freedom is to be what you really are. You trade in your reality for a role. You give up your ability to feel, and in exchange, put on a mask."
#in the doll house

Dina Goldstein’s In the Doll House.
According to the artist this piece: ”examines the less than perfect life of Barbie and Ken. B is a super doll, the most successful doll in the world. Her partner K is grappling with his sexuality and finds himself in a loveless marriage. He struggles with his position in the household and faces his lack of authenticity.”

To celebrate the season there is a Color Festival in India, also known as the “Holi”. People gather around and throw colorful powder and water in one another.
This festival is the commemoration of the victory of good against evil, and the triumph of devotion. The bonfires lighten on the day before is in memoir of an ancient Hindu story.
Do you think that this part stayed just in India? NOT! New York and Rio de Janeiro also has it :)

#in a given space
Half the Air in a Given Space is an interactive instalation created by british artist Martin Creed.
It consists in hundreds or maybe even thousands of baloons that fill half the volume of a room, and it can be any room! How the name suggests and Creed confirms, the idea is to maintain the space full of air, with a sliglty differencce that half of it is inside the baloons.
Participating of this facility is like getting in a giant pool of colorful balls.
Check out the pictures and how people are just so happy being part of it!
BALLOONS EVERYWHERE PEOPLE!
H. R. Giger is the creator of the terrifying life forms and their otherworldly environment in the film classic ALIEN, for which he received the Oscar in 1980.
He is a painter, sculptor, designer and interior architect. Giger extends his artistic vision into all domains. Fundamental to the nature of his work is his Biomechanical aesthetic, a dialectic between man and machine, representing a universe at once disturbing and sublime.
If you’re into his work you’ll find the H.R. Giger Museum in Gruyeres, Switzerland amazing. It showcases the largest collection of the artist’s work on a permanent public display dating from the early 1960’s till the present day.
Assassin’s Creed III + Rock the Vote
#rock the vote
The game inspired in the American Revolution helps and brings more young voters into the political fold by partnering up with ROCK THE VOTE! The series has always been steeped in history, inspired by real events, and Ubisoft is taking advantage of that angle to break the fourth wall and incite action!
Using consumer initiatives, Ubisoft’s Assassin’s Creed III will work with Rock the Vote in an effort to entice young adults to make it out to the polls this election season. Rock the Vote has always been passionate about art, and Ubisoft is tying in with that direction in “Art of the Assassin,” a traveling exhibit showcasing AC3-inspired art created by distinguished contemporary artists. The tour will last until the end of October and closing ceremonies includes an auction giving fans a chance to bid of the exclusive works, with the proceeds going to Rock the Vote.
Senior Vice-President of sales and marketing for Ubisoft, Tony Key said:
“There are several parallels between Assassin’s Creed III and Rock the Vote – from our common fan base to our shared platform of patriotism – but above all, this partnership is about giving young people a chance to be heard. Just as 18th century Americans stood together to fight for freedom and democracy, we’re inspired by Rock the Vote’s ability to unite and empower generations of young people and we’re honored to help the organization carry on the tradition.”
See some publicity images everyone!
