Valerie Hegarty (USA)
Valerie Hegarty’s installations create dream-like transitional spaces and objects that expand and fracture the austerity of an exhibition space while dismantling the constructs of image- and object-making. Informed by the current turbulent state of our country while also excavating from America’s past, Hegarty’s work often turns the gallery into a dramatic place of change. Working with fragile materials such as foamcore, paper, paint and glue, she exploits a scrupulous mimicry of objects only to demolish them by devices often associated with their historical significance. On one level the viewer can become overwhelmed with an inquisitive desire to determine what is real and what is constructed and on another, can decide to revel in the make-believe. Hegarty’s ruins suggest a path of destruction and chaos that can be traced from early colonialism to the most recent effects of globalization. Her work portrays a pivotal moment in our narrative – one that is full of pathos yet buoyed by the hope that comes with change.

Happiness and laughter mixed with large amounts of angst and tears, all wrapped up in a thick layer of masochism.
Today in Middle-Earth: Gandalf and Pippin reach Minas Tirith (March 9th, 3019 T.A.)
And there where the White Mountains of Ered Nimrais came to their end he saw, as Gandalf had promised, the dark mass of Mount Mindolluin, the deep purple shadows of its high glens, and its tall face whitening in the rising day. And upon its out-thrust knee was the Guarded City, with its seven walls of stone so strong and old that it seemed to have been not builded but carven by giants out of the bones of the earth.
Even as Pippin gazed in wonder the walls passed from looming grey to white, blushing faintly in the dawn; and suddenly the sun climbed over the eastern shadow and sent forth a shaft that smote the face of the City. Then Pippin cried aloud, for the Tower of Ecthelion, standing high within the topmost walls, shone out against the sky, glimmering like a spike of pearl and silver, tall and fair and shapely, and its pinnacle glittered as if it were wrought of crystals; and white banners broke and fluttered from the battlements in the morning breeze’ and high and far he heard a clear ringing as of silver trumpets.
Two things that seem to be confirmed about this missing plane:
1) Two of the foreigners on board used stolen passports to get on board
2) The Vietnamese (?) Navy says the plane has fallen into the ocean, so they’ve got a bunch of ships out right now searching the waters
-So I guess there’s a lot of conspiracies out there about what happened: the two foreigners could have been terrorists and the pilot crashed the plane into the ocean as a last self-sacrificial heroic act, the plane had some kind of massive malfunction (probably most likely obvi), or the area they flew over had a Bermuda Triangle type deal causing malfunctions in the plane.
Whatever the case, my heart goes out to the family and friends of all the innocent people on that plane, may all the love in the world surround them at this time
Last update I heard was that they’d found an oil slick in the ocean, but no plane yet.
can we please talk about this little shocker and his face
I’m telling you, his daddy ain’t his real daddy. Benny done done the do.
