Items 1-10 from Proxima Utopia, on display at the Architecture After the Future exhibition 23 Jun - 30 Jul 2017 at Haus der Architektur in Graz.
“At the exhibition in HDA, we present around fifteen fictional or utopian objects. Together they form a kind of classical vitrine display, popularised by museums and natural history collections. Laid out on a neutral grey fabric with exhibition labels, each object is meant to read as evidence of speculative future scenarios. The items range from books and other printed objects to memorabilia and souvenirs of utopian futures. They are presented together, even though their storylines might be contradictory or improbable.”
I hear so many “tone police” one another–silencing people by attacking their vehemence or volume and ignoring the substance of what they are saying, always insisting that we should respond more calmly, more rationally, to keep people comfortable rather than truly expressing ourselves. This policing of behavior is a form of surveillance–a form of patriarchal gatekeeping. It’s concerning that when we do show emotions people are quick to label that as “crazy”, which is of course stigmatizing, which is of course limiting. Emotions are part of being alive and human.

‘Your present condition is an opportunity for spiritual advancement. Make the most and the best of your life NOW.’ This month on our mix series is yet another up and coming producer known as Westcoast Goddess. Although she currently has a very short catalog of tunes (only one in fact on the prominent 100% Silk), She’s currently getting prepped and ready to release her debut ep through the illustrious label Omena Records. For now though it’s an honor to showcase one of the most mesmerizing and emotionally landscaped sets that perfectly encases the spiritual healing mood she consistently and so rightfully has placed herself in.

Done in 2012, modified a bit in 2013. This is one of the storyboard illustrations I did for UBI soft Montreal for the project Assassin’s Creed, Utopia. Though the project had been frozen due to some reasons, I really enjoyed working for the team and the project. Did a bunch of pictures for this project, maybe I’ll consider upload them little by little.
Extroverted Sensing (Se): When faced with a problem Captain Jack almost always takes the direct approach. When he sees that the Utopia project needs power he immediately plugs it in…even though the wires are live with electricity. Aboard the Valiant he finds the Paradox machine. Knowing that The Doctor wants it eliminated he simply opens fire with an automatic weapon, an effective and immediate solution. His reckless inclinations pairs well with the fact that he can’t die and he takes full advantage. He flirts with anyone and everyone he meets unashamedly. When he thinks he’s about to die for real he activates “Protocol 417,” gin, vodka, dry vermouth, and lemon twist.
Introverted Thinking (Ti): While Captain Jack likes the direct approach, he understands the consequences and usually has an outcome in mind based a deduction. He concocts a plan to con the Doctor when they first meet, trying to sell him a “warship” which is actually a medical ship. (Unfortunately he’s trying to con The Doctor and we all know how that ends) He doesn’t usually talk about his ideas, keeping them to himself. The fact that he left the time agency shows that he values autonomy and he excels as a solitary operative or with a small team.
Extroverted Feeling (Fe): While often putting up a “Tough guy” front, Captain Jack is actually very sensitive to criticism. His usually, “guns blazing” attitude is subdued at a word from the Doctor. When the Doctor is around Jack strive to keep him happy, refraining from using weapons when possible. His naturally independent nature contrasts with his urge to please. He left the Time Agency after learning that they altered his memories, feeling betrayed. He comes back to save the Doctor and Rose from a falling bomb, as opposed to an Fi/Te who may have seen it as “not his problem.”
Introverted Intuition (Ni): Paired with his Ti, Jack’s Ni helps him understand the consequences of his reckless actions and direct them in a way that is helpful. On occasion Jack has good foresight, such as the time he plans to intercept the Doctor in Cardiff when comes back to refuel. Captain Jack also envisions a new Torch-wood and works to bring the organization back in a form that eliminates it’s old mistakes.
Note: I considered ESFP for a while until I realized how he will put aside his own impulses when other people disprove, specifically The Doctor. He always accepts the Doctor’s verdict and avoids open confrontation, a natural Fe trait.
“Kei and Yuri are on their way to the distant planet Agerna. There, they’ll have to ease tensions between rival governments, capture a self-proclaimed master thief, and stop a mad scientist from reviving an ancient alien race!”
I just feel the need to express myself with this whole Rucas vs Lucaya situation. Especially since many Rucas fans are either outraged or disappointed with the fact Riley realizes she loves Lucas like a brother.
I know a lot of fans of Girl Meets World are in conflict with who ends up who.
However, I have the hugest feeling that Riley will end up with Farkle.
