NessaNessa Hey all,My name is Jenn… I’m the creator of the “Big Is Beauty Project” on Youtube.I took this picture about a year ago, right after I had surgery.I took it to prove a point. If someone of say, a size 2 were to have taken this picture - it would be beautiful and artistic. If someone of my size takes a picture like this, nothing but negative comments are written about it. Is this right? No. It’s not. Who are you to tell me I can’t be beautiful and artistic? Don’t be afraid of what others have to say. If you like your body and want to share it with the world - GO RIGHT AHEAD!!!!Get to know someone before you judge them. You have no right making other people feel like crap just because you don’t like the way they look.I struggled with body image my entire life, and just recently over the past few years have come to terms with the size of my body. It is possible to love your body, yet hate it at the same time. But, when the hate starts overpowering the love - you need to make a change. You can either try and change how you look, and transform your body into something that you’ll adore… Or, you can learn to accept and love the body that life has given you. You’ll never be perfect. Nobody is perfect. Nobody can say that they love absolutely everything about themselves. Learn to take something negative, and change it into something positive.t’s okay to be fat. Just as it’s okay to be skinny, white, black, gay, bisexual, straight, whatever. You’re you, and you are beautiful no matter what.Everybody is different, every body is different.[Exerpts from my blog; http://missbigbeauty.tumblr.com]BE BRAVE! JOIN THE REVOLUTION!
mrs. sparklemrs. sparkle Artists or works of art that have moved me: The fact that people break down and cry when confronted with my pictures shows that I can communicate those basic human emotions.. the people who weep before my pictures are having the same religious experience I had when painting them.
loulou The Sun on Cheekwood Lawn I think this piece is as close as anything to expressing how different Dale Chihuly's work is than any other artist, past or present. I honestly do not know of anyone who would have ever collected hundreds of pieces of (seemingly) ramdom-formed glass, attached them together to what must be an impressive substructure, placed them outdoors, and lit them at night. Most artist treat glass as a natural element that, when formed, must be treated tenderly. Chihuly, on the other hand, treats the glass as a new force of nature, created to rival and compliment it.
lightinglighting Country: China City: Shanghai Project name: Sinopec Gas Station Date: 2011-10-12 Model: ENEP-100W-01 Quantity: 12 pcs This is project happened on 12th October, 2011. In this project, we made a design for Sinopec Gas Station, a gas station located in Shanghai by using 12 pieces LED Explosion Proof Lights (LEDEP). This is our first project for gas station. LEDEP can be used in places where may probably have explosions, like gas stations, undermines, underground constructions, etc. LEDEP has not only higher dust and water proof index, but also explosion proof index, which cannot be realized by other LED lighting products. Before the design, we sent our design group and other two engineers to examine the site. Since this station is located in a remote region and surrounded by three building sites and one stone factory, dust content in the air is much higher than other places. In consideration of such low visibility, our design group decided to use a high power LEDEP: ENEP-100W-01 (with a power consumption of 100W). Originally, we intended to distribute the light evenly to cover the entire region of this gas station (three rows, four lamps for each row). But soon we changed our mind. This gas station has four oil tanks. All of them are sattled in the middle area. In order to realize the concentrated lighting effect, we rearranged lamps in the middle area. From the feedback photo sent by this client we can see that the luminous flux is sufficient and the lighting effect also meet our requirements. We will continuously record the working conditions of these lamps. More information, please click LED Explosion Proof Lights.
Jack Overland FrostJack Overland Frost Who says there’s a dearth of things for guys to collect over at shopping sites like Etsy? Ryan MacDonald’s prints and cards all feature oddball characters and monsters — my pick would be the one where the protagonist seems to have stuck a box over his head and stormed out of an office and is off to do… odd things. Of course there’s lots of other characters that Ryan draws — many of which would actually be great to read up in a comic. And no wonder too: he credits his inspiration source as comics, street art, and the sublime colors in nature!
