New York City-based artist Zoë Williams creates awesomely strange felted wool sculptures of spectral creatures that look like species you’d encounter if you were magically dropped into one of Hayao Miyazaki's films such as Spirited Away or Princess Mononoke. Most of Williams’ sculptures are created using white wool, which heightens their otherworldly feel. She speaks to this on her website with an apposite quotation from Melleville’s Moby Dick:

"Symbolize whatever grand or gracious thing he will by whiteness, no man can deny that in its profoundest idealized significance it calls up a peculiar apparition to the soul."

Williams has been creating her singular sculptures for over seven years now, so the pieces pictured here barely scratch the surface of her unearthly oeuvre. Be sure to visit Zoë Williams’ website, Flickr page or Instagram account to check out more of her fantastic felt creatures. Although most of her work is shown in gallery exhibitions, she also has an Etsy shop where she sometimes makes her pieces available for purchase.

I find the last picture aesthetically pleasing. I should get it printed on a shirt.

QuestionNot only is Katy Perry extremely racist but she's responsible for homophobic movements with her disgusting music like "Ur So Gay" shaming a guy she dated because he was "too feminine" and therefore "obviously gay", "hang yourself with your h & m scarf" and she got a fucking award from lgbt groups! She only used the whole firework bs and and accept gay people schtick to make herself look good. Plus with I kissed a girl she rode and used that fetishization of sexuality for fame and still does. Answer

I could not have said it better myself.

And do you know what? Some folks I know in the LGBTQ community have been laughing my concerns off for a really long time.

"Oh what are you going to do! But her stuff is catchy!" Or "Some of her songs are fine!"

Yeah, she’s not a raging homophobe/racist/enabler/fetishist in all her songs but hmmm I guess that makes it all ok then…

NO. NO. NO IT DOES NOT AND THAT SHIT IS DAMAGING FOR EVERYONE, EVERYWHERE.

Just because someone is not a bigot in a few songs doesn’t mean that negates all the damaging shit that spews out of their mouths, or gross shit that they do.

She is a horrible person, and I am so tired of people just shrugging it off like “oh well, that’s pop music!”

FUCK THAT.

Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard!

"Whose streets? Our streets! Took over the streets in Third Ward, marching in solidarity with Ferguson, from the HPD cop shop on West Grey and St. Emanuel and through the hood. We out-smarted the cops who were trying to block the streets and keep us on the sidewalks. HPD, out of our community!”

Navajo Kindergartner Sent Home from School, Ordered to Cut His Hair

On Monday, a 5-year-old Native American boy was sent home on his first day of school and ordered to cut his hair short because it allegedly violated district policy, the boy’s mother said.
The child, Malachi Wilson, an enrolled citizen of the Navajo Nation, had been looking forward to his first day of kindergarten at F.J. Young Elementary in Seminole, Texas.

I AM SEETHING.  FUCK THE CONTINUATION OF ASSIMILATION EFFORTS AND ASSAULT ON THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL, EMOTIONAL, AND SPIRITUAL WELL-BEING OF NATIVE AND INDIGENOUS PEOPLE. 

THIS COUNTRY HAS NO SHAME

NO CONSCIENCE

NO HISTORICAL BEARING

HAS AMERICA FORGOTTEN SO SOON?

THE TRAGEDY OF NATIVE CHILDREN FORCED TO LEAVE THEIR HOMES FOR RACIST BOARDING SCHOOLS?

WHERE THEIR HAIR WAS CUT? WHERE CHILDREN WERE BEATEN FOR SPEAKING THEIR MOTHER TONGUES? WHERE THEY WERE ABUSED AND FORCED TO HIDE THEIR CULTURE AS A WAY TO SURVIVE? 

NEVER FORGET. NEVER.
