Growing up between Pennsylvania and Ireland, my sense of identity was tested twice a year as I was forced to acclimate to a new culture. Today, much of my work questions what is deemed acceptable or natural within a particular community, and how these agreed upon norms often function as a method of social control. These images, made in rural Pennsylvania, bring together a digital world of consumption and surveillance with the physical space, rooted in the absurdity and terror of late capitalism. I wanted to make unsettling photographs of a culture that is both uncomfortable and familiar – fear of the future is palpable here – through extreme alcohol consumption, conspicuous wealth, incredible debt and violence.⠀
awwwards. the awards that recognise the talent and effort of the best web designers, developers and agencies in the world.
please, please vote here guys, much appreciation.
Love and terrorism cannot draw breath together. They are totally antithetical with each other. A terrorist uses unlawful brutality and barbarity towards the mankind. On the other side love adjoin and rebuilt the humanity. In his animation film “Cupid is not a terrorist” director Bellopropello intellectually drew together these two totally reverse aspects through CUPID.

Cupid; the son of Venus, the goddess of Love and Mars, the god of war is the god of desire, erotic love, attraction and affection. His iconography acquired the bow and arrow that represent his source of power. Interestingly it is said that a person or even a deity who is shot by Cupid’s arrow is filled with uncontrollable desire. Here the question arises, is this obstreperous love is harmful for the mankind or a blessing? Is it the Cupid’s arrow which encouraged Paris to steal away Helen from Troy which resulted the Greeks and Menelaus armies turned the Aegean Sea red with blood? But in his animation film, Bellopropello has not framed Cupid’s arrow as a culprit but as a love acquirer searching for true love.
Love can be blind but love cannot be brutal. In the presence of love terrorism cannot exist. Hence Cupid, the god of uncontrollable love can never be a terrorist.
