A Midweek Meditation On Saving The Environment

 

A Midweek Meditation On Saving The Environment
By Julia Childs

Midweek Meditations is a weekly column written by Julia-Elise Childs where she rounds up her favorite happenings in fashion, art, culture, and beyond. We figure that despite living fast, we should probably catch our breath every now and again.

There’s levels to accepting our new president-elect. The first level is not accepting him at all. The second level is praying that our precious Earth will remain intact and protected throughout his unfortunate presidency. The third level is realizing that we are now in a country governed by someone who writes off climate change as a hoax. The fourth level is finding action.

We are not helpless.

Inspired by Patagonia donating all Black Friday proceeds to grassroots environmental groups as an initiative to save the environment, I am meditating on how we can help the earth. Coral reefs are bleaching at alarming rates, temperatures are rising globally, wildlife is suffering. This is the only earth we’ve got. We must take action.

Donate, Donate, Donate

Need a gift idea? Donate to an environmental group in a loved ones name. Need some inspiration? The Sierra Club is the oldest and largest environmental group. Wildlife Conservation Society is dedicated to saving wild animals and plants. The Ocean Conservancy advocates against practices that threaten marine life and hosts a wealth of action-based information. Our friends at PangeaSeed are amazing at creative art that pushes forward dialogue about global ocean environmental issues.  You can find even more options here. Bottom line: Support those doing the work that you cannot do. Join those doing the work that you can do.

Use Your Voice

Speaking of joining those doing the work that you can do – I bet if you’re reading this, you’re capable of writing an e-mail and/or signing a petition. Get on it. Put some pressure on President Obama to spend his final days in the office safeguarding our environment from Donald Trump. Tell Congress to support the Paris Climate Agreement. Spend some time finding petitions that speak to you and align your voice with them.

Support #NODAPL

This is an environmental issue just as much as it is a cultural issue. If you haven’t already, please educate yourself (last week’s Midweek Meditation is great place to start, if I do say so myself) and consider donating your time and efforts to support this cause.

Wendy Red Star Creates Unforgettable Art About Her Native American Ancestry

 

Wendy Red Star Creates Unforgettable Art About Her Native American Ancestry
By Julia Childs

Wendy Red Star creates work that rewrites Western culture’s Native American narrative. It isn’t that she erases the history of her forefathers – it is that she challenges the exoticized gaze that is often shed upon Native peoples. The 35-year-old artist and mother makes art that proves that Native voices have a place in every sect of American culture – especially the contemporary art world. Her series ‘White Squaw’ debunks the grossly racist and sexist tropes that still haunt Native Americans today. She does this by inserting herself into eerily familiar erotic novel covers where Native women are depicted as oversexed, wild, and insatiable figures.

_21_arizona_laydown

Wendy’s childhood on the Montana Crow Indian Reservation is marked by Apsáalooke craft and she cites her uncle, artist Kevin Red Star, as a main source of inspiration – thus proving that her creativity has been in steady development from a very young age. Today, the inclusion of family lineage is strong in Wendy’s work, shown through her frequent collaborations with her 9-year-old daughter.

multimedia-artist-wendy-red-star-is-challenging-the-limitations-of-contemporary-indigenous-art-body-image-1479510202

Identifying as an ‘identity-based’ artist, Red Star’s work expands outside of tackling issues of gender and sex. Her series ‘My Home is Where My Tipi Sits’ is poignantly intimate. ‘Four Seasons’ is certain to make you second-guess the Native American imagery you’ve seen in popular culture. ‘Thunder Up Above’ is keenly futuristic, uprooting the spectator to another dimension of Red Star’s work completely. There is beauty in art that challenges one’s intellect and Wendy does just that – spectators must think critically about the racist messaging around Native Americans that most of us have received in popular culture and daily life for the majority of our lives. There is no such thing as a passive witness when digesting Wendy’s work, a beautiful example of art expanding intellect.

Get acquainted with more of Wendy Red Star’s work below and visit her website here to dive deeper.

A vintage inspired Swedish home full of soul

 

A vintage inspired Swedish home full of soul
(My Scandinavian Home)

Every now and again I stumble across a beautifully unique, creative, Swedish home that’s full of soul.  This is one of them. Tuva Minna Linn, husband Peter and their two children and dog live in a former missionary house in the countryside in Southern Sweden. The house dates back to 1921 and is teeming with vintage treasures and beautiful patterns, and designed throughout so all the family can feel happy and relaxed. So wonderful! A few weeks ago photographer Kristin Lagerqvist (who’s home I once featured here), paid a visit…..

Photography: Kristin Lagerqvist Interior design: Tuva Minna Linn

So lovely! And so lovely life!

The wallpapers, the textiles, the one-off pieces. It’s all so inspiring, don’t you think?

Is there anything that catches your eye?

Get the look from Minna’s home: Boucherouite rugs (this one is beautiful – it’s a one-off though so you’d need to be quick!) and vintage kilims (love these!), this leather chesterfield is similar, Minna sells vintage kimonos in her online shop. Children’s bed canopy and bunting. Try William Morris for similar wallpaper (Hyacinth is a pretty one).

You can see the full tour of Minna’s home here. You might also like to check out Minna’s lovely blog, instagram and online shop Oddlovin’.

Other homes captured by Kristin include the lovely Swedish home of Johanna Bradford, the boho home and studio of an artist and florist and a dairy in the Swedish countryside. Sooooo beautiful, in a fab boho way.

Have a lovely day!

PS With my favourite month of the year just round the corner there are so many exciting things coming up on My Scandinavian Home  (even if I say so myself!) including a big give-away this evening and a tour of my home with Christmas touches tomorrow (I’ve been busy with my little elves! Always nerve-racking to share too – eeeeek!), as well as lots of other Nordic Christmas inspiration (and of course the usual Scandinavian inspired home tours)….soooooo excited!
