Lots of new updates this week to Disco Witch Vintage, including launching an Etsy shop! The DWV Etsy will be stocked with Vintage T’s and any overflow from the original store, since I can’t seem to stop finding pieces to list!
I don’t know much abut Russian fairy tales, but photographer Margarita Kareva’s visions of them make me want to learn. More here.
Wearable anatomical art by Betty Baker on Behance.
The frontier of the body is divided up in this layer which separates the interior from the exterior, hidden or revealed. And if we had the possibility of opening up this border, to go beyond the skin… These accessories make it possible to see more than that is possible. This gives rise to an inverted striptease, the more I get dressed the more I undress…
British scientists have produced a material so black that the human eye can’t even comprehend what it’s looking at.
The new material, Vantablack, is a nanotube material that absorbs all but 0.035 percent of the visual light, making it so dark that all shapes and contours are lost in it. Darker than even the darkest of our hearts, packs together fields of nanotubes so tiny that light particles cannot get into them, but can bounce in between until it is absorbed.
The prospects of updating our wardrobes with this blackest of all blacks is slim to none : scientists say that any garment would lose all features and the wearer would resemble a disembodied head over a dress-shaped hole floating through a crowd.
“Many people think that black is the absence of light. I totally disagree with that. Unless you are looking at a black hole, nobody has actually seen something which has no light … These new materials, they are pretty much black as we can get, almost as close to a black hole as we could imagine.”, says Stephen Westland, professor of color science and technology at Leeds University.
