Selections from ‘Rituals’, by Noorann Matties
Forced to examine ourselves in ways many normally avoid, Rituals as a project sought to capture the moment in which we our lives become devoid of distraction and we become intimately aware of ourselves. By photographing people’s personal beauty rituals I attempted to capture this awareness, this intimacy that occurs only when one is forced to examine their own body, the most basic thing that is theirs, and build upon it.

This is my own composition notebook homework assignment in progress. Professor Chewbacca reflects on the crayon experience. I’ve inked it and now I’m coloring it in
I like to figure out problems in my composition notebook using drawing and slow writing and non-photo blue pencil to help me with certain problems that defy being approached head on.

#SARAH MANNING #knows the system #sarah manning has been kicked around by people in power #sarah manning knows to be suspicious of all that shit #religion and science — what does it matter if it’s all a bunch of sexist white dues trying to control the #lives and bodies of everyone else? #she has such a good read about who to trust and who to protect #it breaks my heart #she tries to be out for herself and her people #but she keeps expanding her idea of what her circle of ‘her people’ constitutes #because she’s got such a good heart #oh i love sarah so much (via mswyrr)
#*rolls around in tags* #i love that our protagonist is explicitly from a working class/low income background #instead of one of her middle or upper-class status fellow clones #that she was raised by a woman who is suspicious of the police and this is treated as REASONABLE #the default position of the show is automatically to be wary of those in positions of power #her and Felix have always been aware of this

Basically, if you’re not watching Sleepy Hollow, you should be. I don’t watch a lot of tv, but out of the handful of current shows I watch now, this is easily my favourite.
