Artist Iyad Sabbah Gives Life To Israel-Palestinian Conflict With 'Worn Out'

Palestinian artist Iyad Sabbah has captured the wretched turmoil of Palestinians living in war-torn Gaza with a family of seven clay figures titled ‘Worn Out’. The figures represent a real family who fled Gaza’s Shuja’iyya after the summer 2014 war between Israel and Hamas

The family appears to be fleeing, stumbling through real-life debris and rubble, their clothes stained by pigment representing blood. Depicting multi-generational family members, Sabbah seeks to graphically help humans of conscience around the world connect with the suffering and pain that permeates lives of the Palestinian people every day. 

“Shuja’iyya neighborhood is one of the places that was completely destroyed, and the idea came to my head to do something about the war, to focus on displacement of the Palestinians,” Sabbah told th eCairo Post. “The displacement scene is very influential, so the sculptures were put amid the wreckage of the destroyed houses in Shuja’iyya to show the suffering of the residents,” he said, adding that the sculptures were also placed on the beach to depict refugees immigrating illegally in order to escape from war zones.

Iyad Sabbah himself was forced to flee his house in Gaza’sSudanyya neighborhood during the bombings. The artist is a member of the General Union of Artists and a lecturer at Aqsa University in Gaza. See Iyad Sabbah website. The artist was concerned over hostility from conservative Muslims over his depicting human forms. To date this has not been an issue. 

According to the Cairo Post, at least 2,145 Palestinians were killed and 11,200 divilians injured in the latest fighting. More than 16,800 homes were destroyed according to a donor conference on Oct. 12 on Gaza Reconstruction held in Cairo and co-hosted by Norway. Note that Palestinian officials say the vast majority of the dead were civilians; Israel says half were Hamas and other gunmen. The Times of Israel reports more than 100,000 homes damaged, affecting one-third of Gaza’s population of 1.8 million.

AOC reported yesterday that 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai will donate her entire $50,000 World Children Prize to rebuilding schools in Gaza.

Millenials In America And Globally Are Adopting Nomadic Lifestyles

Writing for The Culturist, Britany Robinson updates us on lifestyle trends among the Millennials. Facing masssive student debt, a dismal job market, and a business preference for hiring independent contractors with no benefits, Millennials are renters.

Buying a home is not high on their agenda, although they might be great candidates for a tiny house on wheels. Britany explains

With fewer jobs available, we’ve gotten creative with our careers. More of us are freelancing, consulting, running our own businesses, and working from coffee shops rather than cubicles. And with this shift in employment patterns, comes an intoxicating freedom to live where we choose. It’s a freedom that many of us are taking hold of, despite our parents hopes that we’ll eventually “settle down”.

The paramount mindset emerging among millions of Millenials worldwide is the very real option of choosing a nomadic lifestyle. America’s favorite word ‘freedom’ is taken literally by the Millenials.

After extensively interviewing over 60 millennials, Mic contributor James Wolfensbirger notes that the Millenials generation is, “quick to openly imagine themselves living and working in not just different parts of the country throughout phases of their lives, but in other nations as well.” Every Millennial Wolfensbirger surveyed answered “yes” when asked if they would move to another country for a job opportunity.

The necessity of redefining a quality life has been thrust down the throats of the Millenials. The American dream is fast becoming a thing of the past for so many. The very vision of ‘success’ is moving from fancy cars and designer brands to life fulfillment in a grand, global experience.

Strauss and Howe, leading scholarly researchers on generational theory, believe that the Millenials will be regarded as a Hero generation. armed with the tools to correct the major mistakes of the last 20-40 years with a different set of values and priorities. Stay tuned, because of the statistics on this info card are correct, America — in particular — is positioned for a very interesting ride into the future. ~ Anne

'Ocean Atlas' Artificial Reef By Jason deCaires Taylor Drops Into Bahamas Sea

Sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor has deployed the largest single underwater sculpture ‘Ocean Atlas’ in Nassua, Bahamas. It is a young, local Bahamian girl holding up the ceiling of the ocean.

“During low tide, the waterwill  reflect a mirror image of the sculpture on the underside of the sea’s surface,” writes MyModern Met.

Constructed using sustainable pH neutral materials, the work is meant to be an artificial reef for marine life. The sculpture draws tourists away from overstressed natural reefs. As the artist states, “With our oceans and coral reefs currently facing collapse from numerous threats including; overfishing, habitat loss, ocean acidification, global warming and water pollution the piece symbolizes the burden we are currently asking future generations to carry and the collective responsibility we have to prevent its collapse.”

Speaking previously about the place of his art in saving coral reefs, Jason deCaires Taylor informs us:

Coral reefs attract an array of marine life (such as colourful fish, turtles, sea urchins, sponges, and sharks) and also provide enclosed spaces for sea creatures to breed or take refuge.

Only about 10 – 15% of the sea bed has a solid enough substratum to allow reefs to form naturally. In order to increase the number of reefs in these areas artificial reefs have recently been created from materials that are durable, secure and environmentally sensitive. These reefs appear to have been successful in that they have attracted coral growth which, in turn, can support an entire marine ecosystem.

One of the greatest benefits of artificial reefs is that they have lifted the pressure off natural reefs which, over the past few decades, have been over-fished and over-visited.

Philippe Starck's PATH Prefabricated 'Green' House Opens In Paris

Architect/designer Philippe Starck has realized his dream of building a ‘deeply modern’ and environmentally responsible prefabricated house with his first installation on the perimeter of Paris. Called PATH (Prefabricated Accessible Technology Homes), the house os designed to be ready for shipping in 6 months and requiring no more than two weeks on onsite construction.

PATH is a collaboration with Starck, a Slovenian engineering firm Riko and French’green’ technology experts.

PATH is a decidedly modern glass and aluminum two-story house outfitted with a host of energy-efficient and energy-producing elements, including solar panels, wind turbines, rainwater collection devices, and heath pumps—all strategically chosen to help the house yield twice the energy required for its operation. While this prototype—which features the kind of light-saturated, open-plan interior, and smart storage solutions to warm the heart of any modernist—will eventually be occupied by the designger and his family, Stark’s vision for PATH is a good deal more inclusive. The PATH concept is intended to be widely adaptable to a range of home models, each customizable to desired size, floor plan, individual features, and, consequently, price points. via

Starck describes the house as ‘not an architectural work’ but rather a concept made with the best engineering and technology available.

Riko’s CEO Janez Škrabec also downplays the wow factor in favour of a purer purpose, writes Wallpaper. ‘We have to replace beauty, which is a culture concept with goodness, which is a humanistic concept,’ he says, noting that he and Starck share similar values. ‘We reinvigorate each other.’

Artist Rebecca Rütten Explores Class & American Fast Food Culture | Whole Foods Responsibly Grown Rating System

German photographer Rebecca Rütten explores the topic of eating a healthy diet and class status in our modern American Fast Food culture with her series ‘Contemporary Pieces’, a series of five still lifes and five portraits. She states:

“During the conception of ‘Contemporary Pieces’, I became enamored with the eroticism, presentation and charisma of paintings from the Renaissance Period. In the Late Renaissance painters dealt with the middle and lower classes. In my opinion, Fast Food Culture represents these two social classes in the United States today. To eat healthy is expensive. However, one can buy large amounts of food at a fast food restaurant for a comparatively low price.”

Rebecca Rütten’s friends posed as her models, healthy food lovers who express a certain aristocratic disdain for the cheap, fat-ladened, mass-produced, genetically-modified foods they are holding. For the most part, Rebecca’s models don’t consider that what they are holding qualifies as food.

In America, Rütten’s friends would likely shop at Whole Foods. Today the upscale grocery brand launched a new rating system for its produce suppliers called Responsibly Grown.

Whole Foods will now rate its produce ‘good’, ‘better’ or ‘best’, based on pesticide and water use, treatment of farm workers, waste management including plastic waste and “whether they provide conservation areas to foster bees, butterflies and other pollinators,” writes the NYTimes.

“This is the latest example of our commitment to transparency and sustainable agriculture,” said Matt Rogers, who handles standards and sourcing at Whole Foods. British stores will not be involved in the launch of the Responsibbly Grown initiative, which will impact about half the produce sold in the 390 Whole Foods stores in America.

Whole Foods Responsibly Grown

In September 2014 Greg Asbed and Lucas Benitez, Co-founders, Coalition of Immokalee Workers were among the honorees at the Clinton Global Initiative. The Coalition of Immokalee Workers (CIW) is a worker-based human rights organization internationally recognized for its achievements in the fields of corporate social responsibility, community organizing, and sustainable food.  The CIW is also a leader in the growing movement to end human trafficking due to its groundbreaking work to combat modern-day slavery and other labor abuses common in agriculture. The CIW works in three broad and overlapping spheres:
