The New F-Word in Art
"Time and opportunities have created a new breed of so-called 'feminist' artists. Intelligent Life's Jessica Machado talks to a few de facto practitioners."
"The artists themselves—Plumb, Gilmore, Begien and Rottenberg—say they aren't against the word 'feminism'. All four artists are careful to give credit to their female predecessors for 'fighting the fight' and framing their work in some fashion. But none seem too eager to wave their feminist flag either. 'It's not like we're fighting for these rights in a political way any more,' observes Begien. 'Now, it's about the modern-day niche of feminism.' Begien says that by exploring the role of an androgynous girl—'How does she fit into the world? What does that person do for fun?'—she hopes to show that 'that person' is not so different from anyone else. 'She's human,' she says."

- Recent studies suggests that the keto diet might be an effective tool for treating depression, and clearing up so-called "brain fog," though scientists caution more research is necessary before it can be recommended as a treatment.
- Any experiments with the keto diet are best done in conjunction with a doctor, considering some people face problems when transitioning to the low-carb diet.
It's up to us humans to re-humanize our world. An economy that prioritizes growth and profits over humanity has led to digital platforms that "strip the topsoil" of human behavior, whole industries, and the planet, giving less and less back. And only we can save us.
- It's an all-hands-on-deck moment in the arc of civilization.
- Everyone has a choice: Do you want to try to earn enough money to insulate yourself from the world you're creating— or do you want to make the world a place you don't have to insulate yourself from?
