Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

I used to think that I could never lose anyone if I photographed them enough. In fact, my pictures show me how much I’ve lost

The porn films are not about sex. Sex is airbrushed and digitally washed out of the films. There is no acting because none of the women are permitted to have what amounts to a personality. The one emotion they are allowed to display is an unquenchable desire to satisfy men, especially if that desire involves the women’s physical and emotional degradation. The lightning in the films is harsh and clinical. Pubic hair is shaved off to give the women the look of young girls or rubber dolls. Porn, which advertises itself as sex, is a bizarre, bleached pantomime of sex. The acts onscreen are beyond human endurance. The scenarios are absurd. The manicured and groomed bodies, the huge artificial breasts, the pouting oversized lips, the erections that never go down, and the sculpted bodies are unreal. Makeup and production mask blemishes. There are no beads of sweat, no wrinkle lines, no human imperfections. Sex is reduced to a narrow spectrum of sterilized dimensions. It does not include the dank smell of human bodies, the thump of a pulse, taste, breath—or tenderness. Those in films are puppets, packaged female commodities. They have no honest emotion, are devoid of authentic human beauty, and resemble plastic. Pornography does not promote sex, if one defines sex as a shared act between two partners. It promotes masturbation. It promotes the solitary auto-arousal that precludes intimacy and love. Pornography is about getting yourself off at someone else’s expense

My light installations use the camera obscura as a point of departure. they are immersive optical environments, idealized spaces with discreet openings. in translating the outside world into moving fields of light and color, the projections make an argument for an unfixed notion of sight. motion emphasizes the vitality of these projections. whether through the slow arc of the sun, the kinetic pace of pedestrian traffic, or a sometimes easy pulse of wind, each work responds to an environment in flux.

Over the summer I was playing with automatic drawings (er, sharpie doodles) where I was closing my eyes and scribbling on a page, then building off of them to make creatures. Kind of like looking into the clouds.

The more I made them I realized that even though I was “randomly” scribbling, my hand sorta worked with muscle memory and a lot of my scribbles had similar movements. So then I had the idea of closing my eyes and holding my pen loosely when I was on public transit to let the train or bus create a movement, and that’s what these are.

I was originally going to build off of them but I think they are just fun to look at? I mean not to take seriously but, I don’t know. They’re fun in my opinion. It was fun to close my eyes for 10-30 minutes and then see what came of it.
