“It was important that people come to value light as we value gold, silver, paintings, objects.”
New video from the Exclusive series: James Turrell, our current 100 Artists featured artist, describes the values and perceptions of light while revisiting one of his “skyspace” works, Second Meeting (1989).

I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
The babe of all Disney
When I grow up I want to be Roger.
Also, I like thinking about the fact that 101 Dalmatians came out in 1961 and yet fels like it was contemporary with my childhood because they showed it again when I was growing up.
Can’t stop listening to this…
Technology has made the process of finding information incredibly simple, inhibiting our capacity to become truly knowledgable.
Part of “Dangerous Ideas”, my thesis work exploring controversial concepts proposed by various scientists and intellectuals, using visual metaphors to investigate how these ideas can make us so uncomfortable.
