The referendum follows a citizens’ initiative launched by Coaliția pentru Familie (the Coalition for Family) in late 2015, which gathered over three million signatures in support of the referendum, substantially more than the 500,000 required to initiate a constitutional amendment referendum.[…]

“The Government allotted on Tuesday, September 18, EUR 35.2 million for organizing the referendum to change the definition of family in Romania’s Constitution.” [source]

This referendum is a shameless exercise of political opportunism.

Lexie Smith – Bread on Earth
Queens, NY

Bread on Earth is a publishing platform supporting the diverse dialogues that stem from our relationship to grain, in Lexie’s words: “I research bread and write about it.

Portrait with Lexie Smith with a bread work

I also place it into non-traditional visual contexts as a means of calling attention, catalyzing diverse dialogues. I occasionally make bread into sculptures and photographs, and am building a website and community surrounding it. That initiative is called: Bread on Earth”

Figurative Bread Sculpture

Matteo Lucca  – Figurative Bread Sculptures

Matteo Lucca’s figurative sculptures are forged with the unlikely material of bread. Using the unusual contours of these bakes—and experimenting with burns and malformed sections—the works take on an unsettling quality.

Sweetheart

Sweetheart toaster – 1922

toaster from 1920

This “Universal” toaster model E9410 was patented in 1929. Fondly called the “Sweetheart,” the toaster has a feminine appeal with its earring-like handles, diamond-shaped body, and floral and arabesque decoration. The delicate design of this metal casing helped to shield the industrial nature of the electrical heating element behind it.
