CAN YOU IMAGINE WHAT THE INEVITABLE CRAIG FERGUSON/PETER CAPALDI INTERVIEWS ARE GONNA BE LIKE.
I mean, Craig Ferguson is a GIGANTIC Doctor Who fanboy, and he was in a band with Capaldi, back in the day. Those interviews are probably gonna be better than Doctor Who itself.
we can deal with any sort of amazing thing in this sci-fi fantasy reality, except a non-white, non-male lead, because THAT doesn’t work in our canon of space cat fuckers and robot toilets
Welcome, Peter Capaldi, the 12th doctor!
ERIN RILEY’S TABOO TAPESTRY
Philadelphia based fiber artist Erin M. Riley is tackling taboo issues with her loom. She’s capturing the issues of today’s generation with very old school traditional form of storytelling. Her threads weave together depictions of female sexuality, drug use, birth control, car crashes, selfies, among others. The results of which are breathtaking in a very perverse way - most of the images will make you feel as if you’re sneaking a peek at private photos on someones phone, the element of being privy to what’s going on behind the scene but not being talked about - and at second glance you can’t help but stare in awe at the painstaking efforts that go into her work.
Erin’s work will be showing at Philadelphia based Paradigm Gallery + Studio from August 30th - October 12th, 2013. Hope you can make it out, these tapestries are sure to stir up a dialogue.
