“Jacobs’s dioramas provide peeks into a world in which reality is presented in such exquisite detail it begins to look surreal.
The artist draws from art history and garden pest control brochures alike to create miniature 3D works of art, viewed through a circular glass lens. Viewers get the impression that they are looking into another realm, simultaneously natural and constructed, familiar and unknown. In a way, we get a taste for a fish’s life from inside the bowl.”
I’m crying because this is incredible
Hollywood is filled with examples of former sweethearts people grew to hate — from Megan Fox to Katherine Heigl and Julia Roberts. Roberts was once America’s girl next door but, as Jezebel’s Phoenix Tso put it, “people now speculate [she’s] a huge bitch.” And as Star’s 2013 Most Hated Celebrities poll shows, the penalties for perceived unlikability are much higher for women than men. Whereas Justin Bieber and Chris Brown, the latter a convicted abuser, ranked a paltry 8th and 20th, respectively; Heigl nabbed 5th place. Kristen Stewart was all the way up in 2nd, and Gwyneth Paltrow won. What makes Gwyneth Paltrow 19 spots more hateable than Chris Brown? You tell me.
What the Jennifer Lawrence backlash tells young women, by Nico Lang
hey girls friendly reminder that if another girl is being mean to you, avoid calling her a bitch, slut, or whore, because it’s likely there will be dudebros nearby and if you say that they might think it’s ok to say that to other women. Call her “motherfucking shithead” or “cranberry fucknut” or something that’s genderneutral. If we wanna change we gotta start somewhere
cranberry fucknut is my new favourite insult.
