Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
I am unexpectedly weepy looking at this.

It’s so good that I ALMOST SCROLLED PAST IT because I assumed they were just regular pictures
Technical High School Builds a Replica Metal Gear REX for Culture Festival
Chiba Prefectural Keiyō Technical High School, a high school in Chiba that emphasizes machinery, construction and electronics, held its annual cultural festival on November 1-2. The construction department built an intimidating greeting for its visitors: a replica of Metal Gear REX, the war machine from the Metal Gear Solid game series.
The school’s geeky bent is further evidenced by the festival’s name, “The Attacking Keikou” [short for “Keiyō Technical”] — a probable reference to Attack on Titan, which is known in Japanese as “The Attacking Titans.”
I love how starter pokemon all go through the three stages of life; the cute and cuddly phase, the awkward puberty phase, and the badass cool phase.
Except for Bulbasaur. Bulbasaur just keeps turning into a bigger Bulbasaur.
to the people who think that lesbians are paid attention as much as gay men in society, here is some news
I’m pretty sure lesbian porn is bigger than gay guy porn
Ah yes, fetishization, what good representation
Hempstead Independent School District (ISD) in Texas has confirmed that a middle school principal has been placed on leave after Latin@ students said that she forbade the entire school from speaking Spanish.
A group of students told KHOU that Hempstead Middle School Principal Amy Lacey announced over the intercom on Nov. 12 that they were no longer to use their native language in order to “prevent disruptions.”
It was over two weeks later before the superintendent sent a letter home insisting that “neither the district or any campus has any policy prohibiting the speaking of Spanish.”
But the students said that the effect of the ban had been chilling.
“People don’t want to speak it no more, and they don’t want to get caught speaking it because they’re going to get in trouble,” sixth-grade student Kiara Lozano explained to KHOU.
Some students felt that the principal gave teachers permission to discriminate against them.
“She was like no speaking Spanish,” eighth-grader Yedhany Gallegos recalled. “I was like that’s my first language. She said, well you can get out.”
Hempstead ISD spokesperson Laurie Bettis said in a statement that Lacey had been placed on leave while the district investigated the charges.
“The district has received allegations regarding this issue and the district is investigating the matter,” Bettis wrote. “At this time, the administrator is on administrative leave with pay until the investigation is completed and appropriate action is determined. This is all we can say at this time as there is a pending investigation on this matter.”
“The district is committed to efficiently and effectively resolving this matter with as little disruption to our students and their learning environment as possible.”
holy fuck the amount of racist comments on this article. >_<
I can’t even open a program to screenshot this
I don’t mind, if I get hate… But a Woman as Watson? I don’t like it D: Sorry, but Lucy Liu can’t be Watson! I mean… What about the Fangirls? xD
What about the fangirls?
I mean, have you seen Lucy Liu?
Hell I bet more girls are into Lucy Liu then Martin Freedman.
edit:I’m just going to add some more pictures of lucy liu so you get my point
and here with a bunch of puppies
did you know she also paints?
and that she’s in a band with Idris Elba?
confirming i am fangirl for lucy liu and eh about all these other guys
cmon one is LUCY LIU and the other is bland mush
what would any right thinking human pick
but fangirls are only white and heterosexual and can only be attracted to cis white guys don’t you know? who cares about fangirls who are queer and/or of color who might prefer to see a woman of color acting as watson- i mean they don’t actually ~count~
Also, Holmes and Watson have been: mice, anime dogs, brought back to life in the 22nd century and a robot.
What the hell is so wrong about an Asian woman playing Watson?
I’m always wary of people that are opposed to Lucy Liu as Watson. I mean, most likely you’ve got some sexism/racism /underestimating-the-glory-that-is-Lucy-Liu-problem going on.
Seriously, though. If you’re okay with animals playing Holmes and Watson, and not a talented woman of colour, then hell yes, you’re a racist.
Also, I’m a queer fangirl. Yes, we do exist. You should probably try to remember that the world doesn’t consist of only white straight people.

Go there, and do as the instructions say.
When my art was stolen, I got the post reported, and it was taken down. Don’t worry, it doesn’t just take down the sources post, but it takes down all the reblogged posts too.
Please give this a reblog, many artists out there may not know this is here.
And remember, ask permission before sharing, or don’t post it.
