Internet Meme of the Week

(11/22/10 4:00am)

The statistics touted by the green movement are often overwhelming and almost inconceivable, such as the 1.14 million brown paper supermarket bags that are used in the United States every hour. But photographer Chris Jordan brings a visual significance to these stats in his series of manipulated digital photographs, "Running the Numbers." Jordan begins with a photograph of an object and multiplies it to create a larger image. In "Cans Seurat," for instance, Jordan depicts Georges Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande Jatte" using 106,000 aluminum cans the number used in the U.S. every 30 seconds. "Running the Numbers" is composed of both representational and non-representational images, such as "Shipping Containers," an abstract and highly colorful, dynamic rendering of 38,000 shipping containers, the number of containers transferred through American ports every 12 hours. Jordan's visually compelling works implore the viewer to consider the role of the individual within the overwhelming scheme of American consumerism.

DDE performs among priceless tomes in Rauner Library

The ensemble performed for an intimate audience that gathered around the balcony facing the Special Collections stacks. The performers warmed up in a corner of the balcony, then lined up to be led into the space by three librarians, for security. These librarians each stood in the corners of the three levels of the glass enclosure, each of which housed four dancers on each story. This intense security conveys the monumental nature of the ensemble being allowed behind the glass.

Daily Debriefing

(11/22/10 4:00am)

U.S. Sen. Frank R. Lautenberg, D-N.J., and Rep. Rush Holt, D-N.J., introduced legislation Thursday that would require colleges and universities to establish anti-harassment policies, according to a press release from Lautenberg's office. The bill is named for Rutgers University freshman Tyler Clementi, who committed suicide after his roommate allegedly recorded and publicized a video on the Internet showing him during an intimate encounter with another man. The legislation aims to "recognize cyberbullying as a form of harassment," according to the release, and would obligate colleges and universities to create a policy that prohibits harassment on the basis of "actual or perceived race, color, national origin, sex, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion," according to the release. Students would have to be informed of the policy, as well as information about institutional procedures following any instances of harassment and services available to victims and perpetrators.
