i cant believe im hesitating making this post but
if someone has a comfort object, like a blanket or a stuffed animal or anythign that they have to sleep with in order to make them feel secure or positive, don’t fucking make fun of them. i don’t care where it is or why you feel that it’s funny or childish, but don’t make fun of them.
The same rule applies to something anyone does to comfort themselves. Sucking their thumb, for example.
What if there are actually multiple souls in your body but you’re the most powerful one so you have control over your body and the voices you hear in your head are just the weaker souls talking to you.
and maybe people with schizophrenia don’t have an assertive soul so all of the souls are fighting to take over
both of you write a book together
Ruslan Khasanov’s Pacific Light
Some work resists classification, challenging the boundaries that exist between different mediums. This is the case in the recent project of photographer and graphic designer Ruslan Khasanov, Pacific Light. What began as a fascination with the separation of oil and soy sauce translated into experimentation with ink, oil and soap, of which Khasanov has created still images as well as video. This isn’t a completely foreign concept - I seem to remember doing something similar as a child in a classroom setting. However, the result here is a captivating spectacle with arguably strong formal ties to drawing, or what this phaidon article calls “animated drawings” or even “liquid sculptures”. Some of the stills seem to mimic microscopic cellular activity, whereas other stills are simply more abstract images exploring form and colour.

God’s Prototype by Ian Crawley
As if ‘playing God’ artist Ian Crawley is taking found objects in nature, such as stones, sticks and moss, to recreate the human body. Humorously, the artist describes these pieces as what he imagined God’s first ‘sketches’ or prototypes of the human body would look like, with the materials that were available.
But this work isn’t focusing on Creationism or who (or what) created whom, but the connection we as humans have to nature. Reflecting on the natural-made versus man-made. These natural objects have always been used by humans to sustain them us nutrition, or protect them us weapons. Even though we now have processed foods and more advanced weaponry, there is still a need for natural objects. We need trees for oxygen, don’t we? Coexistence is the main theme in this work.
In the end, God’s Prototype is there to remind us that we aren’t above or below stones, sticks, and plants. We are part of the same level of natural objects, and though we’re made out of flesh and not leaves, we’re still as natural as a leaf or a rock.
