On the one hand I’m like “female villain displaying lesbian tendencies wow what is this 1950s pulp fiction?” but on the other hand I’m like female villain displaying lesbian tendencies.
Room Portraits by Menno Aden
Through challenging camera angles Menno Aden abstracts most familiar actual living environments and public interiors into flattened two-dimensional scale models. A camera that the artist installed on the ceiling of various rooms takes pictures downwards of the interiors. The resulting images lay out space in symmetrical compositions that look like assemblages stripped off any kind of objectivity. The views into private homes and secret retreats bring up associations of the ubiquitous observation camera. The notion of surveillance is systematically played out by the artist to hint at society’s voyeuristic urge that popular culture has made mainstream.
androids crying for the first time and rubbing the wetness from their cheeks and being confused and not understanding why they are ‘leaking’
androids struggling to comprehend their human emotions on top of their logical robotic thought processes
damaged androids who are self-conscious about their robotic parts being exposed and are worried that their human will find it frightening
androids trying really hard to blend into human society and they try to speak ‘casually’ or use slang and it comes out as an awkward mess

The traditional term for homosexuality in China is “the passion of the cut sleeve boys” (断袖之癖), so named from the story of Emperor Ai of Han (27 BCE - 1 BCE) and Dong Xian (23 BCE - 1 BCE). As the story goes, Emperor Ai fell in love with a minor official named Dong Xian. Dong Xian quickly gained the Emperor’s favor. One afternoon as they slept in bed, Emperor Ai woke up. Rather than wake his lover, he cut the sleeves of his robe to let his lover sleep longer. Homosexuality was regarded as a normal affair up until the late Qing dynasty when the government attempted to westernize the country.
gondoleia’s tags are on point: #we actually have a very long and very richly documented lgbt+ history #granted most of it is with cis men (or most likely — we didn’t have gendered pronouns until the europeans and so most of the pre-qing literature is ambiguous to gender so it could basically be read any way you like #but yeah then the nationalists and the late qing government tried to modernise #and sent scientists and journalists overseas in europe #and picked up on their ass-backwards ideas about homosexuality and brought it back to china #where it’d never been taboo before #(ha apparently the jesuits were shocked at the open nature of homosexuality in china) #yeah and then homosexuality got put onto a list of psychological illnesses and didn’t get taken off until recently #so thanks for that
ah this is the sweetest story oh gosh (white people why do we have to fuck everything up)
