ART TAKEAWAY SHOWS WITH FAILE & THE NEW YORK CITY BALLET

The New York City Ballet commissioned this AMAZING four story high, 2,500 box installation piece from FAILE the Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil and Patrick Miller. The pallets and pieces of the installation are wood and very much part of an interactive show. Audience members for the Feb 1st and May 29th shows will receive a limited-edition work made specifically for this event.

I love FAILE’S statement on the project, “If they’re the ballet then we’re the New York City. It’s a little bit of mixing the grime with the glamour…wrestling with the beauty & the beast. It’s taking these two elements and pushing them together.”

Special gallery hours to see the work are February 10-17th.

WOMEN GAMERS EXIST! THEY AREN’T JUST LEGENDS! →

women-in-science:

“What is it with the assumption that women try to be ‘one of the boys’ by gaming or liking sports or whatever? Like women are going to go to the effort of engaging in hundreds to thousands of hours of work to gain the needed experience, just to look sexually appealing for a potential mate? Please.”

In a way, I believe that female scientists are also painted with the same ‘mythical unicorn’ paintbrush as female gamers.  There is an ever growing body of men out there who over-sexualize and idealize female scientists or “geek girls” in general.  I’ve had the unpleasant experience of hearing “Oh, so you’re into science? That’s sooo hot!” from men my age before.  Get a grip.  I don’t spend most of my waking hours reading research articles, conducting experiments, and analyzing results because I think it makes me seem more appealing to you.  This is in no means an accusation I am throwing at the entire male population - rather, it is an observation of a rather disturbing trend that hurts not only female scientists but the scientific community in general.  

This exactly. I see MEN using this as a way to sell scientific/tech fields to girls and young women, and it makes me feel gross.  Women should choose science because it’s something that awakens their minds, it’s something they are passionate about, it’s something that is interesting and they can lose themselves in the sheer bliss of the work.  That’s why anyone should become a scientist [or really anything for that matter].
