Breaking news: The D.C. Appeals Court just killed Net Neutrality.This could be the end of the Internet as we know it. But it doesn’t have to be. Tell the FCC to restore Net Neutrality:

they want to make the internet like tv. with channels and paying to get to specific websites and things. net neutrality = not doing that

This impacts every internet user. Please signal boost the hell out of this and sign the petition if you are American

I do not reblog things like this very often, but this affects me both personally and my business as a freelance artist.
In the economy here; cash is already strapped as it is. You bet your ass companies would suck the ever living life out of misc. art sites.
I don’t want it to ever come down to me choosing between groceries or purchasing a new tier package via comcast to be able to access tumblr or DeviantArt (let alone not guaranteeing I’ll even be seen by my customer base since they may not want to pay out their asses either). It doesn’t seem important to most, but I do 90% of my business online entirely.
Please sign up, fight for this and share it with your followers/friends/family and urge them to give them hell as well.

Not writing related, but this is incredibly important. While we pay for service via ISPs, the internet has been a relatively free space where everyone, no matter their income level, is able to connect, access a wealth of information, and express themselves. The Internet has become a major part of our culture as human beings and the notion that ISPs might be able to limit what sites I can access unless I pay them more is utterly sickening. A lot of us are cash strapped as is, and I’d rather not be limited even more by someone else’s greed. Net Neutrality is essential and I hope you guys will understand why it needs to remain.
P.S. Signal boost this if you’re able.

Today’s the day. The day you help save the internet from being ruined.


Yes, you are, and we’re ready to help you.

(Long story short: The FCC is about to make a critical decision as to whether or not internet service providers have to treat all traffic equally. If they choose wrong, then the internet where anyone can start a website for any reason at all, the internet that’s been so momentous, funny, weird, and surprising—that internet could cease to exist. Here’s your chance to preserve a beautiful thing.)

Eva Berendes’ works interrogate how we establish an object as a painting or a painting as an object. They consider the rhetorics of geometric abstraction in relation to the human body, to architectural space, and to other objects, whether these are quotidian products or artifacts from the Applied Arts. 
A recurring format in Eva Berendes’ practice is the screen. She makes screens that are free-standing, hanging, or leaning in the space, screens that structure and mediate, screens that display other objects. Permeable elements – like grids, welded “play-fences”, cut-out perforated sheet metal and semi-translucent curtains– are animated by their surroundings. The works resonate to varying extents with formats and categories of assemblage, still life, relief, display, furniture design, Craft, Minimalism and Postmodernism.
Eva Berendes has studied at Akademie der Bildenden Künste Munich (DE), Hochschule der Künste Berlin (DE) and Chelsea College of Art & Design, London (GB). Her works have been presented in solo and group exhibitions in venues such as Hara Museum Tokyo (JP), CRG Gallery New York City (USA), Bundeskunsthalle Bonn (DE), Witte de With Rotterdam (NL), Museum für Moderne Kunst, Vienna (AU), Grazer Kunstverein (AU), Bielefelder Kunstverein (DE), S1 Artspace, Sheffield (GB) and de Vleeshal, Middelburg (NL). The artist lives and works in Berlin.
