The performance “’Be the Inside of the Vase” was divided into two parts.
The first story began with my dad’s attempt to commit suicide. The performance revealed my uneasy childhood and difficult relationship with my father. I was still and silent whist my voice revealed the narrative using a pre-recorded audio. In the second performance the story moves towards my relationship with my mother. Through a rather brutal personal history I addressed sexually political statements:
From my father: “Women should be like vase, smooth, decorative and empty inside! ” From my mother: “ Don’t be a vase, pretty but empty inside, be the inside, be the quality!” From myself: “This is my voice, my story, my childhood, I am not a vase! .”

Sarah Garzoni's 'Breaching' Dress is Made From Hundreds of Shark Teeth

Breaching is an installation project by artist Sarah Garzoni: a life-sized traditional 19th century corset made from wax and… approximately a thousand shark teeth. Sarah Garzoni’s most recent apparel creation, called Breaching, will either unleash your inner shark or expose your inner pansy. And why should you be afraid of a dress? Because the corset, inspired by 19th-century designs, was made from wax, plaster and nearly 1,000 shark teeth.

Rest assured, however, that no one will force you to wear this life-sized corset — it’s an installation art piece. The French artist designed and displayed Breaching at the Atomes Crochusan exhibition in Paris. The piece serves to bring attention to the painful, sometimes scarring clothes women were compelled to wear centuries ago by juxtaposing it with a modern fear: sharks.

Oddly enough, this exhibition started mere days before Discovery Channel’s Shark Week, although one frames sharks as charming and elegant, while the other highlights the fish’s meaner aspects.

the white house released this video on sexual assault that actually targets men, telling them not to rape, rather than telling women not to be raped. please watch this.

This is so fucking important, that I can’t even start to describe the happiness I get from finally seeing a major world government making a video that doesn’t tell women to not get raped, but instead tells men to not rape & to stop rape in the first place.

This right now, should be across Tumblr like a wildfire. It should be trending on Twitter and Facebook. This is good news. This is great news. This is, for once, a positive step towards educating people on a fucking huge scale about sexual assault.

This isn’t a solution. Rape culture isn’t gone. We can’t all just stand around and pat ourselves on the back saying, “We did it guys! We made the video! Job done.” - but for the first time in my memory, society is beginning to actively change its broken perspectives from the top level down. This is great. This is good news. This is a start.

This is fucking hope.
