#288: Everyday Sexism

scribez:

I am an attorney. It is a part of my job to regularly exchange written correspondence with individuals I will never meet. To avoid overt sexism, I sign my letters with my first initial and my last name. I don’t mind doing this; it helps people avoid falling into common pitfalls. 

What annoys me is the fact that I have yet to receive a return letter that refers to me as anything other than “Mr.”

Ottonian art, painting, sculpture, and other visual arts produced during the reigns of the German Ottonian emperors and their first successors from the Salic house (950–1050). As inheritors of the Carolingian tradition of the Holy Roman Empire, the German emperors also assumed the Carolingian artistic heritage, the conscientious revival of late antique and Early Christian art forms.

Ottonian art later developed a style of its own, however, distinct from the Carolingian tradition, particularly in painting, ivory carving, and sculpture. Ivory carving continued to be produced for liturgical purposes; as can be seen in scenes from the ivory plaques of the Magdeburg Antependium, carvings have a characteristic restraint and the narrative is conveyed through simple gestures and enlivened by an original kind of decoration such as that in the strongly patterned background.

Fresh Paint by Martin Klimas

After his latest series “Flower Explosions” photographer Martin Klimas offers an experience out of the ordinary of depositing fresh paint on a speaker and then run it at full power, and then enter the moment with his camera. More result, graphic and creative to find photos.
