berlin loveletter 3, stolpersteine. reposted at @anglesberlin. i’ve always liked this city-wide memorial project — stolpersteine or “stumbling blocks” are little 10x10cm brass plaques in the pavement all around the city, each commemorating the name of a nazi regime victim that used to live or work in that area (their last known freely-chosen place before being detained, deported or killed), their dates of birth and death, and how they died. the project was designed by artist Gunter Demnig in 1992 and there are now 60,000+ @stolpersteine across 22 countries. #berlin #stolpersteine #stumblingstones #illustration #ww2 #memorial #ww2memorial #holocaustmemorial #gunterdemnig

an illustration for a story on small experiments in physics — how they allow scientists to experience wearing multiple hats in an operation, a lot like people working at an early stage startup get to do. #science #physics #sciencelustration #duneexperiment #experiments #scienceart

First of a series I’m excited to start posting, tentatively named #tinyvastness, with the goal of experimenting in information based visual storytelling. This one is on the four fundamental forces of nature. Is it weird? Does it make sense? Does this format help clarify the concepts? Any thoughts & feedback super welcome. 🖤✨

This illustration inspired by Headscarves and Hymens by @monaeltahawy which I’m currently reading. The book itself is a volcano of righteous rage. (Thanks @crimeiscommon for the rec!) Also I appreciate her articulation of the following point: “The niqab represents a bizarre reverence for the disappearance of women. It puts on a pedestal a woman who covers her face, who erases herself, and it considers that erasure the pinnacle of piety. We cannot continue to don the black veil and raise a white flag to Islamist misogyny.” #monaeltahawy #hijab #fuckthepatriarchy #illustration #conceptual #volcano #rage
