Emily Blincoe: Color-coded photography
We’ve already featured talented Austin-based photographer Emily Blincoe a couple of times on iGNANT. Her output is amazingly creative and never fails to make us smile. Emily is probably best known for her color-coded arrangements.
For her latest works she collected color permutation of tomatoes, oranges, eggs, ice cream and leaves and sorted them into groups and gradients for each image

it’d be cool to speak like 20 different languages & keep it a secret from everyone & then during a time of crisis, u could speak some fluent russian to some russian guy holding a gun to your head & all your friends will be like daaamn
that’s the stuff my best dreams are made out of
I fell for erik like you fall asleep; slowly, then he shot me in the spine
"Mats, I’ve recently heard that you played against Germany’s best Playstation gamer and that it ended in a draw- no? You won?"

Do you ever have that one line in a song that just means the world to you and has this deeper meaning that you feel just explains everything and then your friends listen to it and are just like that’s cool but you’re like NO THAT LINE IS JUST EVERYTHING HOW DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND and you realize just how much music means to you
Erik’s inner monologue: “Puppy eyes, think puppy eyes, you know he can’t resist them. Yes! It’s working, no wait, you look too smug, remember Puppy Eyes. Sexy puppy eyes! There we go! Thank G-d he can’t read my mind right now!”
i always wonder at what point erik makes his decision about what he’s going to do in paris. does he know, already, when he’s reaching out to charles on the plane? is he still trying, knowing tomorrow it will be over, that once he does what he (thinks he) has to do, charles will hate him forever anyway, but it’s still worth this now? hm.
You know, it’s funny because the last time I saw the film, I watched this scene closely specifically for that very reason. Did Erik know, at this point, that he was going to have to sacrifice Mystique? Even as he sat with Charles and spoke about her fondly, and played chess like old times?
At the end of the scene the camera lingers on Erik’s face for a long, lingering pause which someone gifed beautifully here:
There’s something in his expression, I think at least, that speaks to a kind of painful resolve. Charles has awkwardly begun to play chess, their old friendship has sort of rekindled, or at least begun to mend, and yet I feel like I can see in Erik’s expression a kind of regret…possibly for what he’s about to do? And for what he’s about to lose all over again?
The first time I watched this scene I thought he was doing this for Charles; that this attempt, painful and stilted and not nearly enough, was Erik’s way of apologizing and reaching out. To give Charles something, small at it is to hold on to when things inevitably go sideways again.
But that doesn’t really make sense does it? Because Erik has to know that if he kills Mystique he’ll lose Charles for good (yes I know Charles forgives a lot in movie canon but killing the sister he’s loved his whole life? I’m going to say no). So why bother at all? When these mere moments on the plane can be so easily swept away by Charles (in his anger) as Erik being insincere or downright manipulative?
Which leads me to think that Erik is reaching out because it’s what Erik needs. Because he’s had 10 years of missing Charles already; of wanting to see his face and hear his voice and be close to him - physically and emotionally. Like he needs this like water and wants this like air; this tiny moment of intimacy because he knows he won’t have it again. Like Charles is the oasis in the desert that is Erik’s life…
