Last year I posted a small series of images that illustrated my experience with depression and anxiety. It resonated with quite a few people, so I felt that it was something I should continue to build upon. I worked on it all semester as part of a portfolio class, and while it was a ton of work, I’m glad I was able to do it.
Mental health disorders are such a taboo topic. If you ever bring it up in conversation, people awkwardly get silent, or try to tell you why it’s not a real problem. When I was in the worst parts of depression, the most helpful thing anyone could have done was to just listen to me - not judging, not trying to find a solution, just listen. I’m hoping that these images will help open up conversation about mental health issues. Everyone is or will be affected by them one way or another, and ignoring them doesn’t make things better.

Artist statement after the jump:
Hoy he vuelto a ir a la exposición Pixar. 25 años de animación, esta vez acompañada de mis profesores y compañeros de Producción de animación 1.
Y joder, otra vez pelos como escarpias. Es fantástico ver como trabajan, su nivel de calidad es abrumador. Te das cuenta de que es necesario ir poco a poco para ser bueno; tanto tú mismo como tu obra. He salido de la sala con incluso más ganas de dedicarme a ello, de esforzarme y de trabajar por conseguir unos resultados excelentes. Porque todo es posible si se trabaja duro por ello.
La calidad de las fotos… o más bien su nitidez, es un poco cacas porque no se podían hacer fotos. Pero yo soy supermalota.
New Plastic Heals Itself When Cut
A project harnessing squid genetics to develop a plastic that reattaches after it has been cut in two could be a significant advance for self-healing materials, according to a study published this month.
The squid-based polymer, shown in the gifs above, displays mechanical strength that can be recovered after the material is cut. All it takes is a drop of water, low pressure and some heat, and two pieces fuse back into one. The multinational team behind the research says their material could potentially make self-healing fiber-optic cables and medical implants.
“What’s unique about this plastic is the ability to stick itself back together with a drop of water,” said Penn State engineer Melik Demirel. “There are other materials that are self-healing, but not with water.” Learn more and see images below.
