It’s been a while…

But I figured I would take a few minutes to chill from the craziness (i.e., orientation and some deadlines – yeah, someone needed something from me, like, yesterday). In any case, check out this project by artists Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. Visit their Kickstarter page here to learn more about their upcoming works.

  1. Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese are sure to succeed in getting the message across. They created powerful metaphors out of those ice sculptures.

    Like it or not, it’s sure to be embedded in the consciousness of the politicos. (Artists are the best at doing this.)

  2. This is rich and that’s not meant to be a pun. I’m looking forward to more text-based, socially significant, politically charged work from Nora Ligorano and Marshall Reese. Kudos to them for dropping this on us. Kudos to you for sharing it.
