Beth Jung's curator insight, March 3, 2014 5:34 AM

This article is about the Lake Natron in northern Tanzania and is the most serene lake in Africa. The alkaline water in Lake Natron has a pH as high as 10.5 and is so caustic it can burn the skin and eyes of animals that aren't adapted to it. The deposits of sodium carbonate, which was once used in the Egyptian mummification, acts as a type of preservative for those unlucky animals that have died. While working, Africa Photographer, Nick Brandt, discovered dead animals on the shoreline. I never knew there was these kinds of lakes or rivers in Africa. This river does not drain in or out of any river or sea, and they are fed by hot springs and small rivers. In a hot climate, this lake can be up to 106 degrees Fahrenheit. I think it is very cool how there were such places in Africa because I thought there's only deserts and countries and cities, not like these abandoned places. It is very sad how animals die and it is really cool how the animals can survive when they are adapted to it. The things that were used from a long time ago can still harm people and environment these days so we should watch those out.

Maybe irony is the only remaining art genre.  Abstract images imitating abstract images. Wow.  Definitely creepy, but in that conceptual art way.

"A Beautiful Body" Project

"A Beautiful Body" Project | Art, Design & Technology | Scoop.it

I have heard hundreds of stories now. Anorexia, childhood bulimia, the mother of a woman told her she was too fat to be a ballerina, self-hatred, self-suffering. Feeling unsexy because she perceived her nipples as imperfect, feeling unsexy because she lost too much weight after breast feeding. Feeling like there was something deeply wrong with her because she only lost 5 pounds 9 months after the birth of her 2nd child. Mourning the loss of her un-suckled breasts. Sexual abuse, self-inflicted abuse, teenage and young adult drug addictions due to self loathing because she never felt beautiful; breast cancer after the birth of a long awaited pregnancy, loss of a baby at birth with a wrinkly tummy to remind her everyday of what might have been. There can be so many stories shadowing a woman in our culture. We are, however, also incredible blessed with tremendous amounts of freedom and the ability to shape-shift concepts and ideas in our country. We have the ability to feel worthy, to believe we are beautiful and to be a part of a community of people who wish to share beauty and joy in this world.
