Andres Serrano’s best photograph: a white man with black skin – The Guardian04.07.17

The Interpretation of Dreams (White Nigger), 2001. Photograph: Andres Serrano

This is my friend Aaron. He begged me to take his picture. I couldnt do it everyone knew him in the art world but I wondered if I could turn him into something else. He said: OK, turn me into a woman. He wouldnt make a good woman. But Aaron was desperate to get in the show, and so three weeks before the deadline he called me up and said: Ive got another idea: why dont you turn me into a black slave?

I said, I dont know about a slave, but Ill turn you black, and Ill call the picture White Nigger. He said: Thats perfect as a teenager I hung around black friends, and that was my nickname. Theres no post-production or digital changes in this image, its all the work of a makeup artist. But I made sure you would see there was a white man under this black skin, because prejudice is only skin deep.

When I did a photo series in a morgue there was a black woman whose skin was deteriorating, and she had white skin underneath. I pointed this out to the morgue manager, who replied that when he was a student in medical school, his teacher took a very thin piece of skin off a corpse, and said: This is the thickness of racism.

This is from a series called The Interpretation of Dreams, named after Freuds book. I was intrigued by Sigmund Freud at a very early age, after my mother had a series of psychotic episodes. She would not only be in another world psychologically, but very different physically her face was sallow, she was sweaty, and shed be hearing voices. I was frustrated I couldnt pull her back, and that her love for me wasnt enough to keep her from going into that state. So around 10 or 11, I started to read Freud as much as I could, just to work out what was going on in her head. What I got from it was that the mind is a very mysterious place, and you cant question things on a rational basis, because the subconscious is irrational. Ive learned not to judge anyones craziness whos to say who is crazy?

There was also a photograph of a masturbating nun in this series, and one of a cardinal squatting as if hes going to go to the bathroom, called The Cardinal Poos, Hes Only Human. Its all fantasy, my own creative reality. The best way to describe it is in terms of Superman. In Supermans world theres another universe known as Bizarro World, where everything is opposite: Superman is not good, hes ugly, its all backwards. Bizarro World is a place I need to go to sometimes. We have to think outside the box. Im thinking partly about the Trump administration here theres going to be a hot period of art, as opposed to the cool postmodernist period, where people made art about art, or nothing, or theory. Theres going to be a shift towards a more politically and socially engaged art.

Born: New York City, 1950.

Studied: Brooklyn Museum Art school.

Influences: As an artist, Marcel Duchamp. My life coach is Bob Dylan.

High point: Being a completely unknown artist denounced in Congress. It was great for my career, but difficult for me as a human being.

Low point: In 2008, I left the Paula Cooper Gallery I got mad and said some very unkind things. I was very stupid. For a New York artist to not have a gallery in New York, its the kiss of death.

Top tip: Theres a lot of rejection. Persevere.

Andres Serrano: Selected Works 1984-2015 is at The School, Jack Shainman Gallery, Kinderhook, New York, to May 13

‘Overwatch’ Blackwatch Genji: Fans think the "Uprising" comic is teasing a new Genji skin – Mic04.07.17

A new Overwatchevent is just around the corner, and that means the fans are excited about one thing in particular:new cosmetic skins for their favorite characters.

Specifically, the Overwatchfandom seems to be excited about Genji’s appearance in the “Uprising” comic, an Omnic crisis-themed bit of lore to accompany the forthcoming event.

The fans are calling his edgy new look “Blackwatch Genji” and they desperately, desperately want it to be a thing.

In the “Uprising” comic, it’s revealed that Genji was a part of Blackwatch, a covert subsection of the Overwatchorganization which Gabriel Reyes aka Reaper and McCree belonged to.

When Genji was in Blackwatch, he sported a much different look, baring a bit more skin than he does in his default outfit and fans hope this look will be one of Genji’s new skins in the upcoming event.

One fan on Reddit went so far as to allege they’d found “proof” that it was going to be a new skin. Their evidence? That in the background of one of the comic’s panels, you can see what appears to be Genji in the Blackwatch outfit, standing in a “T-pose,” a character stance game developers often use to view every part of a character as they’re designing them.

The theory goes that Blizzard just copied over their actual “T-pose” concept art for Genji’s in-game Blackwatch character skin and used it in the background as a tease for fans. It’s a bit thin but hey, that’s a sweet cyborg outfit, right? So fans are grabbing on to whatever evidence they can find.

To be fair, Blizzard does have a habit of teasing skins and updates way ahead of time in cryptic corners of comics and things like that so, Blackwatch Genji very well might be a thing.

We’ll know for sure once Blizzard officially unveils the new Omnic crisis event on April 11.

The new League of Legends champion duo, Xayah and Rakan have matching release skins as expected, but Master Yi will also be receiving a new skin to join in on the fun!

Xayah looks mysterious and dark in her release skin! The skin is tentatively priced at 1350 RP and it includes updated particles, sound effects, a new model and a special recall!

Rakans skin deeply contracts Xayahs, as hes the daylight to her moonlight. Similarly to Xayahs, the skin is tentatively priced at 1350 RP and will have special particles, sound effects and all that good stuff.

This Master Yi skin looks off the hook. Similarly to the other skins, it is also tentatively priced at 1350 RP and will include special particles and a recall. The last skin Master Yi received was PROJECT: Yi in September 2015.

The cosmic theme matches with Cosmic Reaver Kassadin, so its highly likely that well be seeing more skins with this theme in the future.

These skins are available now for testing and should be available on the live servers when patch 7.7 drops.

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.

Ohio girl loses leg after getting rare skin infection – New York Daily News04.05.17

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 4:13 PM

A 6-year-old Ohio girl, who is a competitive dancer, lost her left leg over the weekend after doctors diagnosed her with a rare skin infection.

Tessa Puma was taken to the Akron Childrens Hospital Thursday after she contracted strep throat and the flu in late March. Her parents became worried when their daughters leg began to swell, causing excruciating pain that eventually led to the amputation, the Akron Beacon Journal reported.

Dr. Jim Besunder, a pediatric critical care medicine specialist at the Children’s Hospital, told the paper Tessa has necrotizing fasciitis.

The condition is commonly known as flesh-eating bacteria, which spreads quickly throughout the body and kills body tissues, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Besunder said the infection traveled through Tessas blood stream and made its way to her left arm, shoulder and back.

Tessas mother, Tina Puma, announced in a Facebook post Monday that her daughter is recovering well from her surgery.

We played her company dance songs. She was responding to that as well!! Tina wrote. Dance is a huge part of her life as you all know, and I’m telling you this will absolutely not stop her from chasing her dreams.

Tina said her daughter has several followup surgeries on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.

Skin grafting will start when she is feeling better and off the ventilators, she wrote.

Stacey Kopec, Tessas dance instructor, described the girls passion for the art.

“She’s only 6 years old and we knew when she was probably 4, so at least for 2 years, that we knew she was just such a superstar, she was born to dance,” Kopec told WJW-TV.

Kopec added that Tessas situation has been the most devastating thing that we’ve had to go through.”

The family set up a You Caring fundraising page to help pay for Tessas medical expenses. The page has raised more than $16,500 as of Wednesday.

We are so thankful for the kind words, prayers and thoughts for our warrior Tessa, the page reads. Please keep cheering her on.

More than 5,000 people from all over the world flocked to Boston for the 17th annual Boston Tattoo Convention this past weekend at the Hynes Convention Center. The convention hosted an array of artistic talent and personalities as people showcased their dedication to their craft throughout the three-day event.

Tattoos are an art form, its not about a rebellion or some crazy lifestyle its just an art medium, sadi Natan Alexander, founder and producer of the Boston Tattoo Convention. I want people to just recognize and respect tattooing for what it is, a beautiful powerful form of personal art.

Loud rock music played from various tattoo stations energizing the venue and the people in it. Some people had tattoos and piercings all over their bodies, others had dyed hair that spiked up towards the ceiling, and many people had removed numerous articles of clothing exposing body parts that would not normally be shown in public. However, nobody looked twice, for it was a place for people to feel free in their own skin.

Rows of tattoo artists stations lined up at the summit where people either laid on tables, sat or stood on chairs to have their tattoos done on whatever part of their body that they wanted.

This is my first tattoo convention. I actually didnt even know an event like this existed, said Erica Carter, from Burlington, N.C., who went to get matching tattoos with her boyfriend. Its a fun environment and the fact that there are talented artists here from all over the world at this one major event is awesome..

Throughout the event, there were many performances such as a burlesque and sword swallowing shows that the audience ate up. People were cheering and whistling from across the venue. Other attractions included a tattoo of the day competition, the display and selling of taxidermy by Bonehouse Forty-Seven and the selling of cannabis-based products by Cannabis World Congress and Business Exposition.

Other vendors at the convention included Eternal Ink, a company dedicated to selling tattoo ink. Sprawled out across their table was a rainbow of over 200 different ink colors and pigments. Box sets of ink were stacked upon one another and displayed as customers walked by eyeing the merchandise.

Selling ink to licensed artists allows me to meet a lot of amazing people and excellent artists, said Daniel Wallace. One of the cooler parts of my job is helping artists find colors that theyre looking for or being able to introduce them to colors they may not have been aware of and help them advance their craft.

The convention hosted 177 booths, including vendors, and over 200 artists worked tirelessly the entire three day weekend infusing pigments into the skin of other tattoo art enthusiasts.

It all started when I was a little kid, said Juan Acevedo, who worked at the front desk for tattoo company, Calaveras. When I saw my first tattoo it intrigued me.

Acevedo said that as he was growing up, his continual visualization of people with tattoos drove his passion further, and added that his body is a canvas for over 70 tattoos, which he plans to combine into one large tattoo over the next ten years.

I come here obviously to do tattoos, but just as important is to make connections, to get inspired, and learn for sure, said tattoo artist, Alex Citrone from Austin, Texas. All my stuff is pretty large scale, this is one tattoo, but it took 35 hours. I have probably 80 or so hours of work on me

Solar-Powered ‘Electronic Skin’ Would Add a Sense of Touch to Artificial Limbs – Greentech Media03.31.17

IEEE Spectrum:Solar-Powered Graphene Skin Enables Prosthetics to Feel

Cochlear implants can restore hearing to individuals with some types of hearing loss. Retinal implants are now on the market to restore sight to the blind. But there are no commercially available prosthetics that restore a sense of touch to those who have lost a limb.

Several products are in development, including a haptic system created at Case Western Reserve University, which would enable upper-limb prosthetic users to, say, pluck a grape off a stem or pull a potato chip out of a bag. It sounds simple, but such tasks are virtually impossible without a sense of touch and pressure.

Now, a team at the University of Glasgow that previously developed a flexible “electronic skin” capable of making sensitive pressure measurements, has figured out how to power their skin with sunlight. That renewable energy could be used to power an array of sensors to add feeling to an artificial limb, the authors describe this month in Advanced Functional Materials.

Gizmodo:Elon Musks Cryptic Art Suggests Unicorn-Fart-Powered Teslas

Enigmatic entrepreneur Elon Musk has no shortage of hobbies. Sometimes, he makes cars. Other times, he likes to do a space thing or play Martian overlord. But now, the 45-year-old billionaire is turning his attention to the arts, as evidenced by a series of cryptic drawings he created using Teslas new sketchpad feature, which is accessible once users download the 8.1 software update for the cars touchscreen. More impressive than the art itself, however, is the fact that Musk is using it to hint at the next wave of Tesla technology: unicorn-fart-powered vehicles.

Sure, it sounds outlandish, but Musk has proven time and again that the uncomfortable is his comfort zone. After all, isnt it unbelievable enough that grown adults would feel compelled to use their car — which is typically used for driving — as a sketchpad? Blurring the lines between utility and complete uselessness is something Musk is clearly looking to explore, as evidenced by these creations, which he tweeted last night.

Forbes:VW Is About to Supercharge the Electric Car Market. So Why Is California Complaining?

State officials, including members of the California Air Resources Board, which negotiated the settlement along with the federal Environmental Protection Agency, want Volkswagen to direct funding to neighborhoods in poor communities like Fresno, Bakersfield, San Bernardino and East Los Angeles, where the air is dirtiest and EVs are practically nonexistent. Instead, critics say, VW’s plan favors wealthy cities and gives the giant carmaker a strategic advantage over smaller competitors.

In a blog post this week, CARB member Dean Florez, a former state senator and now public relations executive, accused VW of “trying to weasel out of its responsibility to make good for damaging the lungs of low-income residents who were forced to breathe unlawful exhausts spewing from their modified diesel engines.”

Mother Jones: The EPA Just Accidentally Told the Truth About Trump’s Climate Plan

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump visited the Environmental Protection Agency, where he signed an executive order dismantling key Obama-era policies aimed at fighting climate change. On Thursday morning, the EPA sent out a press release highlighting some wonderful praise that Trump’s order has received from groups such as the Chamber of Commerce, the American Petroleum Institute, the American Coalition for Clean Coal Electricity, and — of course — Republican politicians. But the top quote in the EPA’s email, attributed to Sen. Shelley Moore Capito (R-W.Va.), had an unexpected message.

Bloomberg:Trump Closely Watching Troubled Nuclear Plants That Obama Funded

As Southern Co. opens a review of its troubled nuclear reactors following a bankruptcy filing by contractor Westinghouse Electric Co., the Trump administration has 8.3 billion reasons to be worried.

Southern is financing the reactors with $8.3 billion in federal loan guarantees approved under President Barack Obamas initiative to build the first new nuclear plants in the U.S. in 30 years. Now, following delays and cost overruns, financial troubles at Toshiba Corp. unit Westinghouse have put the taxpayers interest at risk, along with the fate of the projects.

The government “has issued a loan guarantee to one of the stakeholders involved, and for that and other important reasons, we are keenly interested in the bankruptcy proceedings and what they mean for taxpayers and the nation, said Lindsey Geisler, a U.S. Energy Department spokeswoman. We expect the parties to honor their commitments and reach an agreement that protects taxpayers.”
