“This piece was primarily a trust exercise, in which she told viewers she would not move for six hours no matter what they did to her.  She placed 72 objects one could use in pleasing or destructive ways, ranging from flowers and a feather boa to a knife and a loaded pistol, on a table near her and invited the viewers to use them on her however they wanted.  
Initially, Abramović said, viewers were peaceful and timid, but it escalated to violence quickly.  “The experience I learned was that … if you leave decision to the public, you can be killed… I felt really violated: they cut my clothes, stuck rose thorns in my stomach, one person aimed the gun at my head, and another took it away. It created an aggressive atmosphere. After exactly 6 hours, as planned, I stood up and started walking toward the public. Everyone ran away, escaping an actual confrontation.”
This piece revealed something terrible about humanity, similar to what Philip Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison Experiment or Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment, both of which also proved how readily people will harm one another under unusual circumstances.” 
This performance showed just how easy it is to dehumanize a person who doesn’t fight back, and is particularly powerful because it defies what we think we know about ourselves. I’m certain the no one reading this believes the people around him/her capable of doing such things to another human being, but this performance proves otherwise.”

this is why performance art is important


So every single person who told me ‘ignore them they’ll go away’ and ‘you can’t let them know they bothered you’ and ‘They’ll stop if they don’t see you react’ and all that bull shit, my entire school career, I want you to look good and hard at this.
I want you to think about what you said.
What you keep saying.
What you are telling your children.
You are making them powerless.

that last comment. actually crying.

YES, there are people who find cultural appropriation and the use of slurs “ok” with them.

Does that mean it’s “ok” to do it to EVERYONE, even if they might be personally offended by it?

nOOOOOOOOOOOO.

Also it is very important to realize that your irl friends saying this shit is ok may be out of a desire to not start drama and get into arguments. I fucking detest when straight people say faggot but I have a few straight friends who do and it is just not worth the shit to tell them to stop.

also white friends have called me nigga before as a ~*~*funny cool friendly friend joke*~*~ and i didnt even bother to tell them to stop because i have told white friends not to say it countless times before and they refused to or said they would stop and just kept saying it behind my back so i just thought “whats the point”

Hey guys, as you know, I draw things… and now… I’d like to draw things for you!

Due to a series of unfortunate events dating back to November, I’ve been having a lot of financial problems over the past few months. I missed nearly a month of work and have since had my hours cut. My bills are starting to pile up and I could really use some help. So, I’m running a commissions drive: 

http://www.gofundme.com/8if8tw

http://www.gofundme.com/8if8tw

http://www.gofundme.com/8if8tw

http://www.gofundme.com/8if8tw

http://www.gofundme.com/8if8tw

I will draw you a thing in exchange for $$! And, any commissions ordered will come with a PDF copy of Ozzie the Vampire: Rest In Pizza.

Please, please, please considering donating. Even if it’s just a little bit it would go a long way towards helping me pay my bills. And if you can’t help out, that’s cool too! Reblogs and signal boosts would be much appreciated!

Eric is a bro very near and dear to me and if y’all could give him a hand then I will not have to pun you to death

please help out eric! he’s a super talented artist and great guy! you also get a great comic in return, it’s a win/win!

Are you a sculptor or 2d artist?  Are you in a tremendous amount of pain in the shoulders, arms or wrists? 

One of the most important things that no one will ever teach you in school is that art is a physical activity.  It’s hard on your body.  Just like any physical activity, especially one that may last for eight hours, you need to do stretches prior to starting.

Pain can include shooting pains down your arms, tension headaches, numb fingers, cramping of your pecs around your sternum, ect.

This video is a great starter for opening up your shoulders, which will go a long way to helping you stay pain-free.

Most artists don’t make enough to afford health care in the states, so preventative care is a MUST.  Do some stretches before you end up doing permanent damage like I have. 

Other stretches to check out are ones for carpal tunnel and tendonitis.  They are two different conditions that affect the hands and wrists.  If you can, go get a massage and ask them to focus on your shoulders and hands.  Deep tissue/sports massage seems to work the best, although other forms of massage may be just as helpful.
