Seth Dixon's curator insight, November 30, 2013 4:43 PM

This is an emotionally evocative look at how gendered roles and norms are embedded in everyday social actions.  After watching this video ask yourself: How is 'culture' transmitted?  How is it received?  What elements of gender roles did I learn from my family without them overtly trying to teach them to me?

Soviet Bus Stops

Soviet Bus Stops | myinterests+dreams | Scoop.it

"Photographer Christopher Herwig has covered more than 30,000 km by car, bike, bus and taxi in 13 countries discovering and documenting these unexpected treasures of modern art. From the shores of the Black Sea to the endless Kazakh steppe, the bus stops show the range of public art from the Soviet era and give a rare glimpse into the creative minds of the time."

Jared Medeiros's curator insight, March 9, 2015 6:04 PM

A new way to observe and appreciate architecture and creativity from a different culture.  I love the idea of the book to show how something so ordinary and overlooked in everyday society like a bus stop can be turned into works of art.  It would be cool to see this inspire other artists to turn other modern day things into cool works of art.  How awesome would this have been 20 years ago if they did things like this to phone booths?

Louis Mazza's curator insight, April 21, 2015 1:18 PM

This article is a collage of soviet bustops, which happen to be extravagant. Some of them are ancient looking made out of cement. Some have highly decorated sculptures of the sickle and hammer soviet sign. Others are large sheltered areas to protect citizens. By looking at the high scale of bustops, and large amount, it shows that the population must use a lot of bus transport. Some of these bustop are very nice looking, elegant, unique, or a distinct representation of Russian History. It is unique to see a different spin on a Bustop, something that seems so repetitive at Kennedy Plaza here in Providence.

Benjamin Jackson's curator insight, December 13, 2015 4:55 PM

for as monstrous as the soviet union was, they did care about appearances and the safety of their people. these bus stops show some of the wonderful aspects of soviet architecture. in addition, you can see bus stops in the middle of nowhere. this is the same mindset that made the soviets build nuclear shelters for the majority of their populace.

We make educational decisions based on viable career options that might be available...but what if money wasn't a consideration?  What would you want to do with your live?  Hopefully something meaningful that would improve the world.  That might be a great starting point for re-evaluating some life decisions.  Clearly not everyone who wants to can be a professional athlete, but we can find something that will lead to a sense of fulfillment. 

Mrs. B's curator insight, October 5, 2013 8:29 AM

Something that stuck with me once was a speech about firefighters wake up every day and go to their job because they LOVE being a firefighter! Little kids look up to them, the community adores them. It's a snazzy job. I try to keep that philosophy with my job, too. I LOVE being a teacher! Like firefighting, there are occupational hazards, but it is FUN and meaningful. 

What are you going to do with your life to avoid thinking "this is water?"??? Finish this sentence: "If money were no object..."

 

If money were no object, I would spend more time WITH people.
