Anonymous: It terrifies me how Emma Watson gave a speech on feminism that was so carefully geared not to offend the sensibilities of men, and they still threatened her with violence and exposure in a horrifying way. These men don't hate feminism, they hate women plain and simple

I think it’s a defining moment in the radicalization of young women when they realize men, as a class, absolutely and violently hate them.

During the 1999 stabilization of the Brooklyn Naval Hospital, a special whitewash paint was spread over every surface to help encapsulate remaining lead paint.  This lends an eerie effect to the building; virtually every surface is covered with a white matte finish.  As seen on this doorknob, though, rust is able to bleed through this paint.

Porcelain-berry is a deciduous, climbing vine of the grape family which can grow, with support, to a height of 16 feet. The unusual fruits of porcelain-berry, however, distinguish it from similar species. The fruit is hard, with the appearance of porcelain, and changes in color from white to a series of pastel shades of yellow; lilac, and green before finally turning a sky blue. All the colors can often be found on a single fruit cluster.

Brooklyn artist Stephen Shaheen sets out to carve the largest collection of bone sculptures out of marble

My name is Stephen Shaheen, and I’m an artist living in Brooklyn, New York.  I’m working on a really exciting sculpture installation that I hope you join me in creating.

I’m carving bones out of marble.  A lot of bones.

My ultimate goal is to make a huge sculptural installation by the end of 2015.  How big?  The size of this artwork will be scaled by YOU! 

That is, for every person who donates, the installation is going to grow. Whether you want me to make a hundred or a thousand, I’m going to sculpt one marble bone for every $100 received.

There is no limit.

Why Bones?  Why Kickstarter?

Bones are fascinating as abstract, sculptural forms.  Yet they also contain the same calcium that forms the geologic “bones” of the earth.  Marble is literally the crystalized skeletons of ancient sea life.  Even its veining reminds me of our own physiology.  I want to offer a poetic interpretation of these complex relationships in an immense assemblage of marble bones.

I am a believer in the limitless and unforeseeable potential of collaborative art…crowd-sourced projects take on a life of their own, continually evolving through the transformative power of the collective.  Between 2002 and 2011, hundreds of helpers joined me to create a 100-ton marble and granite 9/11 memorial in Highlands, New Jersey, which was completely crowd-sourced—both in donations of materials and cash, as well as the contribution of multiple hands in the actual sculpting process.
