Here’s something different than all those ASCII-conversions… Made 41 years ago. Instead of just using single characters, Sam Harbison printed several text characters on top of eachother to increase the quality.

Riot Grrrl, redux

Riot Grrrl, redux | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

Installation shot: Posters (c. 1991-present) from Riot Grrrl related shows, conventions and meetings internationally.

 

Alien She is a new exhibition that examines the lasting impact of the punk feminist movement Riot Grrrl on artists and cultural producers working today. It’s currently on view at Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, before traveling nationally to cities including Philadelphia, San Francisco and Portland, Oregon. Below are photos of the exhibition and several of the featured works.

 

The show focuses on seven contemporary artists influenced by Riot Grrrl: Ginger Brooks Takahashi, Tammy Rae Carland, Miranda July, Faythe Levine, Allyson Mitchell, L.J. Roberts and Stephanie Syjuco. Riot Grrrl emerged in the early 1990s and emphasized female and youth empowerment, collaborative organization, creative resistance and DIY ethics. In various ways these artists have incorporated, expanded upon, or reacted to the movement’s ideology, tactics and aesthetics, as seen through several projects from each artist spanning the last 20 years, providing an insight into the development of their creative practices and individual trajectories.

Move Over Barbie: This Dress Up Is for Real

Move Over Barbie: This Dress Up Is for Real | Nerdy Needs | Scoop.it

Austin, Texas based “lifestyle” photographer Jaime C. Moore is sick of Barbie. And Disney Princesses too. Now before your feathers get all ruffled, let’s talk about why. As the mother of a 5 year-old daughter and a professional photographer, Jaime wanted to take photos of her daughter in new and creative ways that would not only look great on film, but also get her daughter thinking about the kind of woman she can grow up to be. So she turned to real women like Marie Curie, Sojourner Truth and those featured here for inspiration, and what came out, is absolutely beautiful and inspiring.

Deanna Dahlsad's insight:

So awesome, I could scream!
