Georges Rousse is a world-renowned French artist and photographer born 1947 in Paris, where he currently lives and works.
Georges Rousse is unmistakably a photographer: his photographs are intrinsic to revealing his images, and deciding the composition, cropping and lighting and clicking the shutter are all essential to his process. But he is simultaneously a painter, sculptor, and architect, carrying out the same relationship to his worksites as a painter to his canvas, or a sculptor to his clay or marble.
His raw material is Space: the space of deserted buildings. Taking his inspiration from a site’s architectonic quality and the light he finds there, he quickly chooses a “fragment” and creates a mise-en-scène, keeping in mind his ultimate goal, creating a photographic image. In these empty spaces, Georges Rousse constructs a kind of utopia that projects his vision of the world—his imaginary “universe.”

Let’s be very clear. Contrary to popular belief, there is no such thing as “reverse” racism.
A Tribe Called Red, a band that has made headlines recently for its energetic anthems, is also made up completely of Aboriginal Canadians known as the First Nations people. The innovative group’s shirt makes a satirical yet incisive statement about the ridiculous idea that it’s OK for non-white cultures to be mocked via mascots and team names that culturally appropriate customs and images held dear — and even sacred — to the originators. Although Dan Snyder and his supporters have attempted to argue to the contrary, even the Oxford English Dictionary entry for “redskin” even notes that it’s a dated, derogatory term.
Nitinol is a metal alloy, and its name stems from its roots: This blend of nickel and titanium was developed at America’s Naval Ordnance Laboratory in the 1950s. The stuff is capable of exhibiting a surprising le…
