Her project titled, Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I, reveals an idealized, clean, fibrous anatomy infused with nature.

Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I

CAiTLiN BATES

I am fascinated by how our bodies function, both physically and mentally, yet still have a hard time understanding simple aspects of life. By viewing our complex structures through a quirky child-like mentality, specifically with my series Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I, I am trying to make and understand those connections between myself and of nature….

Her project titled, Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I, reveals an idealized, clean, fibrous anatomy infused with nature.  I have to say that the execution could use a bit more polish but the idea behind these pieces is wonderful.  Look forward to seeing her grow and hopefully do more anatomical pieces in the future!

GOT ANATOMY?

Title: Growth, Destruction, Rebirth I.

A conceptual photo series by Caitlin Bates.

“My current bodies of work are reflections of interpersonal conflicts, ideals, and childish mentalities. They’re about viewing a world without blood and gore, leaving the meatiness of how our bodies work, function, feel, touch and see still vivdly in tact. Mentally and emotionally speaking, I haven’t grown up. Through my work I’m trying to work out the balance of these irrational thoughts and behaviors into the harsh reality of life.  ”

I’ve started work on a new project, or potential new project, but I desperately need some honest and constructive feedback. I feel like they are missing something, but I’m not sure what. Or maybe they work the way that they are. I’ve been staring at these almost everyday for a month and would like a new pair of eyes.

The idea of speaking your true feelings and thoughts to someone is completely terrifying, and it’s even more awful and terrifying if it’s something negative and to someone you care a great deal for. While communication is the backbone of all relationships, it puts more pressure on both party’s shoulders; you want to be honest without being hurtful and sometimes it’s just easier to not say anything at all. The result is a few days of heartache followed by weeks and sometimes months of “what I should have said was…” or “I can’t believe I never said…”; it’s an afterthought of guilt, heartache, embarrassment, shame and unrealized honesty. These have become the letters I should have written you.

The Flash Review: 1. 20 "The Trap" or "Turning off the Gaslight"

My Review of #The Flash “The Trap” or “Turning off the Gaslight”

The best laid schemes of mice and men, often go awry. Especially when men plot against against a guy with technology, knowledge, and insight from the future, not to mention he’s a speedster. The idea of being able to trap such a man seems foolish and proves to be rather fruitless, as Wells reveals that he’s endgame has already snared them all. Leaving team Flash to scurry around in the wake of…
