Chino Otsuka : Imagine Finding Me
Chino Otsuka uses photography and video to explore the fluid relationship between the memory, time and photography. At age 10 she moved from Japan to the United Kingdom to attend school. Her experience of becoming familiar with a new place, a different language and new customs while she was developing her adolescent identity has profoundly shaped her work in photography, video and writing. Her series Imagine Finding Me consists of double self-portraits, with images of her present self beside her past self in various places she has visited. As Otsuka says: “The digital process becomes a tool, almost like a time machine, as I’m embarking on the journey to where I once belonged and at the same time becoming a tourist in my own history.” - via AGO
"High school, it seems, has changed. It has become competitive. Young men and women — 13 to 18 years old — must work more or less tirelessly to ensure their spot at a college deemed worthy to them and their families. So rather than living their adolescent lives — lives brimming with desires and vitality, with vim, vigor, and brewing lust — these kids are working at old age homes, cramming for tests, popping Adderall just to make the literal and proverbial grade. And for what? So they can go to a school that puts them in debt for the rest of their lives. School has become a great vehicle of capitalism: it quashes the revolution implicit in adolescence while simultaneously fomenting perpetual indebtedness."

Bad Ass Dominicana: Jarina de Marco - She’s is the daughter of renowned Dominican folklorist and singer Irka Mateo, and as a toddler she tagged along with her mom on musicological expeditions. She was raised between Brazil, the Dominican Republic and Canada, where her family was forced to flee after her parents brazenly sang a song against far-right president Joaquín Balaguer in front of a military audience in 1994.
Fast forward a few decades, and Jarina draws on those experiences to make futuristic tropical pop, taking equally from Caribbean folk traditions and hip-hop culture. In a yet-unreleased song, she samples Screamin’ Jay Hawkins‘ version of “I’ve Put A Spell On You,” and flips it into a revenge anthem proudly invoking Dominican vodou, in which spell casting is an actual real thing. What you might not pick up on if you haven’t spent time in the DR is that vodou and Afro-Dominican culture in general is extremely taboo due to centuries of Euro-centric conditioning. So by casually throwing those references into a pop song, Jarina is doing something pretty revolutionary. (Source)
