"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves."

Liberia Battles Spreading Ebola Epidemic 

The World Health Organization reported on August 19 that more than 1,200 people have died in the massive Ebola outbreak across West Africa, with Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone at the epicenter. The situation, officials say, is considered “out of control.”

John Moore, a photojournalist with Getty Images based in New York, is in Monrovia to document what has quickly become the deadliest Ebola outbreak on record. (via TIME

This artist has created a life-sized self-portrait using his own blood! (NSFW)

For the occasion of his first solo show at Joseph Gross Gallery, The Map Is Not The Territory, opening September 11, 2014, Brooklyn artist Ted Lawson will début a new series of work consisting of three dimensional wall mounted pieces and freestanding sculptures milled from MDF (a wood fiber based material commonly used in commercial fabrication), brass plate etchings, and three large scale drawings rendered in the artist’s own blood fed intravenously to a CNC (computer numerical control) machine using computer technology akin to a 3D printer.
These man and machine ‘collaborations’ are most poignant in Lawson’s blood drawings. Documented in a short video capturing the artist literally spilling blood for his work, fed to the machine through an IV over hours at a time, the act ultimately challenges the preconception that an artist whose practice utilizes computers and coding is somehow more removed from his work than an artist using graphite or paint.
