Casa Tomada Rafael Gómez Barros

"The urban interventions are meant to represent displacement of peasants in his native Columbia due to war and violence, themes that resonate in one form or another in any country his work is displayed in. Crafted from tree branches, fiberglass, and fabric, the 2 foot ants are particularly striking when seen clustered aggressively on facades of buildings."

  • Ryan: So there you go, Jack. Go out camping. Deal with it, be away from video games for a little while.
  • Jeff: Stick a shotgun into an ant hill and pull the trigger.
  • Brad: Whoa!
  • Vinny: Please do not let your dad know you got that idea from the podcast.
  • Jeff: My dad did that once.
  • Ryan: What happened?
  • Jeff: ... IT WAS AWESOME! That ant hill was GONE.

Prospect:

Tampons were packed with their strings connecting them, like a strip of sausages, so they wouldn’t float away. Engineers asked [astronaut Sally Ride], “Is 100 the right number?” She would be in space for a week. “That would not be the right number,” she told them. At every turn, her difference was made clear to her. When it was announced Ride had been named to a space flight mission, her shuttle commander, Bob Crippen, who became a lifelong friend and colleague, introduced her as “undoubtedly the prettiest member of the crew.” At another press event, a reporter asked Ride how she would react to a problem on the shuttle: “Do you weep?”

“Is 100 the right number?”
