The Future of Sex


The Future of Sex

by Dutch photographers Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm

I choose them is because Anuschka Blommers and Niels Schumm always work with magazines. They give some unique perspectives and observations about a lot of topics. Fashion, sex and different taboos… I like looking at their works. It inspires me and makes me think.

This group of photos has a strong visual impact, and their discussion of the human body and sex is very interesting. How do people give definitions about our body? What is the future of sex. The line between woman and man is becoming more and more blurry. 

 

 

Map and Window

PPT Final Yangzhen-vg28tb

My final project combined paradigms of representation: the map and the window. They represent the story of Medusa, an intricate calculus of hatred for the whole world.

Medusa’s story:

-In Greek mythology, Medusa is a monster, usually described as a winged human female, with a living Viper instead of hair.

-She was originally a ravishingly beautiful maiden, “the jealous aspiration of many suitors,” but because Poseidon had raped her in Athena’s temple, the enraged Athena transformed Medusa’s beautiful hair to serpents and made her face so terrible to behold that the mere sight of it would turn onlookers to stone.

-Medusa was the only one of the three Gorgons who was mortal, so Perseus was instructed by Athena and Hermes to cut off her head and kill her.

Medusa was one of the most impressive Greek mythologists for me because of her strong and special image. When I first saw her in a film, I thought her snake hair was so scary, but I just couldn’t help myself to see more.

Bridge Project 3: Multiple Perspectives

This map layouts our various ideas of the connection and differences between Google and Facebook. It shows our observations of Google and Facebook from different perspectives.Unfortunately, more than half of our thoughts are negative. As the time by, we seem to realize Google and Facebook might giving people more unexpected negative effects.

One and Three Still-Lifes

Me, Myself & I
This project is a outward expression of my personal journey of self-love. This piece was intended to encourage and celebrate the art of self-care. The objects I chose were a white gold bracelet that was given to me, a makeup compact where I am refelcted in the mirror, a lipstick and a pencil. I used the intricate pattern of the pressed powder makeup compact to form abstract lines, and rendered my self-portrait with the same abstract style.

Integrative Studio 1: Bridge Project 2

Artistic Statement

This project is inspired by childhood and displacement. Toys are often the dearest object to a child; with the children being most attached to it. Plushie dolls are usually the main form that represents childhood, purity, and innocence. Animal plushie dolls, to be specific, are usually a child’s “first best friend”, thus it adds to the sense of endearment creating a strong contrast. The dismantlement and juxtaposition of the different plushie dolls display the twistedness and horror of childhood displacement. Along with the use of thick string sewing through the parts roughly, it gives an industrial sense. Hanging the piece from the ceiling enhances the sense of wanting to cry for help but is ironically hopeful and hopeless at the same time. In addition, with the same string we used to connect the part together, it adds continuity while also juxtaposing attachment and detachment; as the connection is the reason for displacement.
