no reporter is going to jail for doing his or her job

When we are aware of the world and the scale of its inhumanity and stupidity we feel small. It very hard to “think globally” and “act locally”, because by thinking globally we become overwhelmed with the scale of the problems to be solved. However the Internet permits many people to act globally in a way they couldn’t before. WikiLeaks is a realisation of this tension. By releasing materials on many parts of the world, we empower others to think and act.
What can ordinary people do? Support and promote projects that are acting at scale. WikiLeaks is my realisation of this tension, but there are a flood of others starting. The clash between diversity and global uniformity which has been created by wiring the world to itself is now in play. You are the troops.

Incisive mind, well packaged ideas, futuristic vision, and philosphic soul. Iris van Herpen will give you stuning pieces of wearable art which push the boundaries of our imagination. Iris van Herpen known for her ‘futuristic & extravagant’ non-traditional for fashion materials and ‘sculptural & exquisite’ designs.
Iris van Herpen who studied Fashion Design at Artez Institute of the Arts Amhem and interned at Alexander McQueen had introduced the 3D-printed dresses in the industry. TIME Magazine has name her 3D-printed dresses as one of the 50 Best Inventions of 2011.
She mixes craftmaship with innovation and materials inspired on the world to come. With using old and forgotten techniques plus digital technology, she wanted to build, construct, and sculpt her designs. She further developed her prints by adding detailed-dilligent-handwork. Van Herpen sees a future where creations in design, art, architecture, and fashion will be partly alive and constantly changing.
some collections from her:
Capriole (2011) With this collection she made her debut in Paris Haute Couture as member of Parisian Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture. This collection is mind-blowing.
Escapism (2011) is about the addiction of constantly escaping reality by digital entertainment something that is a big part of every body’s world today.
Crystallization (2010) ‘chaos as structure’ collection.
Refinery Smoke (2008) Isn’t rigid like other collections. But still, the detailed handwork will get you overwhelmed. Magnificent.
Voltage (2013) is her 4th collection that presented in Paris Haute Couture. Inspired by a childhood dream, a desire to understand, control and recreate lightnings.
Hybrid Holism (2012) she partnered with Julia Koener, an Austrian architect, as well as Materialise to create a dress using “Mammoth Stereo lithography”— a method which up to this point has never been applied to fashion items. According to Julia Koerner, “The design reveals a combination of highly complex parametically generated geometrical structures, almost growing as a second skin on the body, and organic digital leaf formations creating enticing and enigmatic effects.”
Wilderness Embodied (2013) in this collection she proposes to reach this wild nature freedom into the human body and soul.
The electronic singer-songwriter Björk and the mother monster Lady Gaga wore dresses from several Iris van Herpen collections. Her ready-to-wear collection had launched in March 2013, represented by her muse, the musician and artist Grimes.
She forces the fashion to the extreme contradiction beauty. She knows how to make beautiful, poisonous, and goosebumps on the same time. Say hello to this genius designer.
