Y is for Yoga 

Stemming from the Sanskrit verb yuj, or "to yoke," yoga is a series of physical, philosophical, and spiritual practices designed to integrate all aspects of human consciousness. That which conventional Western culture understands to be "yoga" is, in fact, a highly-watered down version of this multifaceted and ancient tradition. While the poses, or asanas, form the center point of Westernized …

Y is for Yahoo! 

Every time I visit Yahoo! to check my mail I find myself distracted by their pathetic articles. Even though I know it’s a waste of time, I can’t help myself. I can’t check my email until I have read all the headlines of their articles and browsed the ones I found most interesting. Even though …

Y is for Youth 

Seeing Rineke Dijkstra's photo of a Polish girl on the beach immediately reminded me of the work of a photographer from my neighborhood, Marisha Camp, who is best known for her series of portraits, like Dijkstra's, of youthful beachgoers, but at modern day Coney Island. I could never figure out what captured me and felt so …

Y is for Yearbook 

As I'm writing this post about yearbooks it's pouring outside and Mumford and Sons pandora is on. So bear with me. Yearbooks were an essential part of school. I vividly remember a very embarrassing fifth grade yearbook, that my best friends moms worked on in their living room for weeks before fifth grade graduation. I …

Y is for “You’re better off reading” 

My friend Chloe Shaw recently posted this image on Instagram. I thought this TV cover was a rather brilliant reminder to pick up a book rather than flick on our flatscreen. While I know that everyone seems to adore  television series such as "Game of Thrones" and "Orange Is the New Black," and countless others, …

Y is for Y Generation 

Y generation (also known as the Millennial Generation) is a term used to refer to those people who are born between the mid 70s and late 90s, roughly. I'd like to dedicate this post to a brilliant article which I read a while back on why members of the Y generation, with their wild expectations …

Y is for Youtube 

Thinking about this week’s readings and the concepts of active/ passive audience members, I kept thinking about various forms of “spectacle” or “theater” we consume every day. More of us experience stories through television or over the internet, far more often than in typical theatrical settings nowadays. With websites like Netflix, which has an incredible …

Y is for Yard 

Yards have been used as a way of entertainment in modern times. Yards are the places where we can spend relaxing moments with family members and friends. Moreover, yards have recorded great memories for children during their childhood years. However, Chinese classical yards embody the aesthetic charactertics of the “Chinese seclusion culture” besides their social …

Y is for Yawning 

Yawning. Why do we yawn? Does it serve any purpose? It seems to be a representation or some expression of being tired, but why do we need to have an outward expression of being tired? Why do you yawn just from seeing someone else yawn? This is what wikipedia has to say about it: A …

Y is for Yesterday 

1. Upon waking, I did not remember any dreams I had. I walked into the kitchen and made some coffee. The sun was pleasant coming through the window as pigeons tried to woo mates on the fire escape. 2. I had to do laundry. Over the last three years I have lived in four separate …

Y is for Youth 

In continuing with the exploration of the aesthetics within music and the discussion of Jay-Z’s “99 Problems”, I found a relation between this song’s lyrics and Merton’s theoretical framework, which discusses the American Dream in detail. As Merton stated, the American Dream simply may not be attainable for some as the road to success can …

Y is for You 

I ran across this quote awhile ago, and I was reminded of it while searching for inspiration for writing. It felt appropriate given our conversations surrounding experiences and environments. I find the implications of this quote very interesting, and likely ones that go unnoticed after a quick read. You are an accumulation of all things …

Y is for Hyperbolic Space 

SInce our discussion about non-Euclidian geometry, I've been thinking about hyperbolic space - as found in art, but also those found in nature. Non-Euclidian Art: Crochet Reefs In searching  for artistic expressions of hyperbolic space, I came across the "Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef" project, a production of the Institute For Figuring, a non-profit Los-Angeles …
