Pinturas mostram uma Suécia de ficção científica

by Samanta Fluture

Um pensamento sobre o futuro: uma vez que ele chega, já não parece mais tão futurista assim. Apesar de tanto avanço, ao olhar em volta, tudo parece bastante normal. Não há carros voando, robôs andando pelas ruas, máquinas confundidas com arranha-céus. Pelo menos é essa a sensação que tenho quando olho para as pintaras digitais do sueco Simon Stålenhag.

Mostrando um universo único, suas artes carregam o dia a dia dos humanos e suas atividades rotineiras, porém tem como pano de fundo máquinas gigantescas e tecnologias que ainda desconhecemos. E é justamente esse sentimento comum, de uma paisagem até que natural – onde ninguém parece tão impressionado com o mundo das máquinas que os rodeia – que faz as obras de Simon Stålenhag tão impressionantes.

O trabalho de Stålenhag é dominado por um ar utópico, influenciado pelas paisagens suecas a serem exploradas. As construções e máquinas aqui são apenas um adendo, esquecidas em gramados, beirando à ferrugem e decadência enquanto a natureza continua viva.

Antes coisa de ficção científica, hoje os avanços tecnológicos são quase invisíveis aos nossos olhos, tão acostumados a viver no futuro.

“Comecei pintando com guache e aquarela. Hoje me esforço para preservar esse ar natural e analógico nas artes digitais .” – Simon Stålenhag, para Wired

Desde criança, Stålenhag conta que já se interessava por filmes de ficção científica. Mas foi depois de descobrir artistas como Ralph McQuarrie (que fez as artes de E.T. e da trilogia de Star Wars) e Syd Mead (design conceitual de Blade Runner e Alien) que decidiu se aventurar a pintar sobre isso.

Além de trabalhar ilustrando e criando conceitos para games, filmes e comerciais, Simon Stålenhag recentemente criou um jogo de 16-bit, o Ripple Dot Zero.

Hans „Gummibärchenkönig“ Riegel R.I.P.

by René

Hans Riegel, König der Gummibärchen und Chef von Haribo, ist gestern im Alter von 90 Jahren gestorben. Danke für die ganzen Goldbären, sauren Gurken, Weingummis, die Kirschendingse, Maoam, Cola-Fläschchen, die sauren Schlümpfe, die Melonendinger in Tropica, die extra sauren Saurier, sauren Pommes, die Schnuller, Pasta Basta Apfel Sour (und Erdbeer Sour, ich kann mich da nie entscheiden) und die tausend weiteren Gummi-Candys, die ich im laufe der letzten 39 Jahren in mich reingeschlungen habe. Nur das mit dem Lakritz-Kram war ein echter Fehlgriff, wie mir jeder vernünftige Mensch mit zwei Geschmacksnerven zustimmen wird. Danke, Hans! R.I.P.

Riegel spent almost 70 years at the helm of Haribo, which was founded by his candymaker father in 1920. From a small firm struggling with the shortages of post-war Germany, he built it into a world famous brand exporting to 100 countries. […] Haribo, short for Hans Riegel Bonn, came to epitomise Germany’s highly successful Mittelstand – the small, actively-managed firms which make up the backbone of the economy.

Fruit-flavoured gummy bears were originally called dancing bears, inspired by the performing brown bears that once appeared at circuses and fetes. The fierce expression on their jelly faces was replaced with a smile in a 2007 makeover.

"(tw:rape) If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place..."

by wagatwe
“(tw:rape) If owning a gun and knowing how to use it worked, the military would be the safest place for a woman. It’s not.

If women covering up their bodies worked, Afghanistan would have a lower rate of sexual assault than Polynesia. It doesn’t.

If not drinking alcohol worked, children would not be raped. They are.

If your advice to a woman to avoid rape is to be the most modestly dressed, soberest and first to go home, you may as well add “so the rapist will choose someone else”.

If your response to hearing a woman has been raped is “she didn’t have to go to that bar/nightclub/party” you are saying that you want bars, nightclubs and parties to have no women in them. Unless you want the women to show up, but wear kaftans and drink orange juice. Good luck selling either of those options to your friends.

Or you could just be honest and say that you don’t want less rape, you want (even) less prosecution of rapists.”

The Bechdel Test has long been the barometer of women-friendly films, but Pacific Rim fans say it doesn't give the movie's female lead enough credit.
