Sophie Kahn Sculptures
Sophie Kahn’s work addresses the resonances of death in the still image. It owes its fragmented aesthetic to the interaction of new and old media, and the collision of the body with imaging technology.
I combine cutting-edge means of reproduction, like 3d laser scanning and 3d printing, with ancient bronze casting techniques. Using damaged 3d data, I create sculptures and video works that resemble de-constructed monuments or memorials.
The precise 3d scanning technology I use was never designed to capture the body, which is always in motion. When confronted with a moving body, it receives conflicting spatial coordinates, generating a 3d ‘motion blur’. From these scans, I create videos or life-sized 3d printed mold sculptures. The resulting sculptures bear the artifacts of all the digital processes they have been though. The scanning and 3d printing process strips color and movement from the body, leaving behind only traces of its form – a scan of the face resembles nothing more than a digital death mask.
Because some days I have exactly ZERO patience for Martha Jones hate.
Martha rocks my world.
I could write an essay about Martha Jones the things she did. Martha Jones is awesome. End of conversation.
Martha deserved better, but series 3 was so much more…realism, really.
Also, dear fandom
“I’d forgotten not all victories are about saving the universe.”
That’s the thing that makes a companion awesome? Really? Not that humans are awesome? No such thing as an ordinary human? Because ordinary humans are all extraordinary BECAUSE they are ordinary humans?
clearly we don’t like Who for the same reasons dude
Oh man yes this.
Also, highlighting the other companions’ accomplishments just underscores how often the female characters’ greatest achievements are things that are completely accidental or incidental to them. The metacrisis was something that *happened* to Donna more than something she did. Rose became the Bad Wolf through her own stubborn determination, but still… once she accidentally transcended time and space, the rest was pretty easy.
Martha wasn’t destined for cosmic greatness through some predestination loop and she wasn’t shazamed by phlebotinum into some kind of super being.
She walked every step of her journey by herself.
can she just get an award or something
I reblog this whenever it pops up on my dash.
So many directions she could have gone with this joke…out of infinite possibilities…she picked the best possible direction.
Best video in the world
