CALL FOR ART! *
How would you interpret Fracture via art?

We are looking to feature your art for the INSIGHT: Fracture issue that is coming out this December. We turn to you to interpret Fracture in your own way through your art. This is a great chance to showcase your work with our audience and also push some of your creativity.

Fracture could mean splitting to the point of no longer existing in its original form. It could also mean something simpler as "broken" or "split." There are a lot of variations of this that can be done via art and we are excited to see what you have in store!


Details for your art submissions:
Please send over your photographs, paintings, poetry, short stories, interviews, song lyrics, interviews, drawings, illustrations and anything else that embodies your interpretation of FRACTURE.

Share your art with us at insightsubmit@gmail.com by November 22, 2015

In my journey to find more nontraditional and perhaps under-highlighted forms of art, I stumbled upon this blog post regarding #Food  as #Art  . It brings up a qualitative analysis for what constitutes art. I like the portrait highlighted in the link as it uses material (food) to make a face. Sure it's not paint, coal, oil, etc. but how much should that matter? Are there any other under-highlight forms of art out there that you feel should be given serious consideration?

"old school"
 
"Revolutions on Air" is the story of mix show legends and studio wizards like Shep Pettibone, Tony Humphries, The Latin Rascals, Marley Marl, and Kool DJ Red Alert - innovators whose “anything goes” attitude pushed the emerging hip-hop, electro, freestyle, and house music scenes and kept radio listeners citywide hooked to their tape decks in order to record these now-classic mixes.

"I had a picture of George Washington Carver [a black inventor who was born into slavery] on the wall next to my desk," he told Vintage Computing in an interview. "And she said, 'This could be you.' I mean, I can still remember that picture, still remember where it was."

It's hard to deny Lawson's geek cred: He ran an amateur radio station out of his housing project after building a ham radio on his own (complete with an antenna hanging out of his window and a radio license).

He also spent his teenage years repairing electronics all over the city. Most impressively, he taught himself most of what he knew about engineering. Lawson attended Queens College and the City College of New York before working at several firms, including Grumman Electric and Federal Aircraft. After scoring a job with Kaiser Electronics, which focused on military technology, Lawson moved to Silicon Valley

Great selection of food for virtually every palate. I had the pumpkin ale fritters (fried pumpkin balls dusted with cinnamon sugar, the root salad and the root crisps (these are just chips as in potato chips). The spritzer a were super refreshing. Service was good. Always attentive but never over bearing. I never had to wait long or look far to get something. Great location as it offers optimal shade and cool breeze. The vibe is okay and reflects the area. Pricing wasn't too bad at all. May be a bit on the mid upper to low higher end as you are paying for good food and location. For example the cooler was R38 and salad was R82. These aren't drastically high prices. I would return for another meal.

This is a great place for purchasing African crafts. It is a market and everyone wants you to take a look at their stuff. Just politely decline while you keep waking. If you find something you like get the price and then tell them you will be back. Check around a couple other stalls for their prices as you can find most of the same items at each stall with varying prices (sometimes 50% less). Once you've decided where to buy it then you should prepare to negotiate. The first price is never the real price as this place is a tourist haven where the vendors can make a decent amount of money for themselves (so don't sandbag it way too much).

Really wanted to love this place. Came in with strong expectations and got real hangry! Food: The meal was good - the tuna salad was a bit overpowering though so I had to save it for the last thing I ate. I did enjoy my meal overall. The one issue was that I arrived within 45mins of opening and they were out of several items already. So my guess is the ordering/cooking balance was off as it was hard to believe on what seemed to be a slow morning that they had no more mac n cheese and just enough for one more steak and cheese sandwich. I ordered the chick-un drumsticks but got a chick-un sandwich instead - and I couldn't wait forever to get it fixed (see below). So just powered through it. Environment: A very nice space that has a good decor. Some of the behind the bar area could be tidied up a bit. One thing I noticed was that guests who ate at the bar were given a table mat. This is fine but the table mat was never wiped down after someone else used it. I watched as one person got up and the table mat was rolled up and put on the fridge and then as another person sat down that same mat was unrolled and given to the next patron. I would suggest getting a couple more mats, doing away with them completely or doing a quick wipe. Value: The price felt just right to me. Returnabilty: Honestly, I would go back and give it one more try but I may just do a to-go order instead because of the mixed up order and then the wait make it hard for me to sit through once again. Service: I think I waited about 30+ minutes for my food. This was the part that really derailed the overall experience for me as I thought it would be a great meal that would be delivered quickly (not fast but when it was ready). Instead I got my meal about 30-35mins late (and what seemed to be after others who came in after me and ordered a sandwich). No real appeasement from the staff other than "it will be out soon."

I stopped by to grab some brunch while in town. Food: they have a wide assortment of things to eat ranging from snacks and pastries to full blown platters. I had the tofu scramble with potatoes and it was delicious. I tried their hot cocoa and it wasn't a huge hit (but still good) - I have been on a search for good vegan hot cocoa and haven't come across anyone that's knocking it out of the park. But I digress. The serving size was adequate and I ended the meal with a Oatmeal-Cream Sandwich (I didn't need it but I wanted it!). My brunch (sans cookie) was very filling. They have a wide array of baked goods (Duh they are a bakery after all) that invite you to try so many things. Environment: The store is laid out in a very inviting manner as you have an outdoor seating area, indoor facing the window and then low tables to choose from. You are also engulfed with a lot of various things that are for sale from food to cookbooks and more. I enjoyed the seating and vibe felt just right. Sticky Fingers is right in Columbia Heights area and near trains, supermarkets and buses. So you will have a wide array of crowds outside and in the surrounding area. Revisitability (aka will I go back): Hands-down yes. I feel like there are so many things to try. Value: I felt the price was pretty adequate for an all-vegan bakery and food shop. Things were reasonably priced and I left feeling full from my meal and not empty in my pockets.

Wow. Talk about southern hospitality. The manager on duty was extremely and pleasant. The theater was pretty immaculate as it was clean and everything was what you imagined a high quality theater would be. They had a great layout of the space. All the seats were functioning and the sound was solid!

A lot of high hopes walking in that were slightly tempered. Food: Very wide assortment of food to choose from and it was all pretty good. The Mac N Cheese was okay at best as it felt like it was missing something to really hit home but I had a hard time placing what that something was to help. Portions are bigger - I opted for the entree. The Buffalo Sauce was weak as well which detracted from my Fried Chicken Meal. The cornbread was tasty and dense which I enjoyed. Environment: The layout is slightly off as there isn't any greeter or anyone to really make you feel welcomed. I walked in and read the sign that said "walk to the back" but along my walk I don't remember getting a high or anything. The entree is served from the warmers but you have to ask a lot of questions unless you've done research on what they serve on the day you are going. This isn't too much of a disaster because the server I had was pretty happy to help explain the couple of things I pointed at and couldn't discern. Value: You get your the worth of your money here at least that's what I felt with my entree. You get a main and some sides and that carried me through the night without feeling too full. I didn't try any of the juices so can't speak to the value and meal. Returnabilty: Yes. I will return here for a couple more meals as there were a good number of options to work through and evaluate all the various things. They seem to have a good menu of options but I need to look more and see if they are all based around the same soy-meats.

Lawd! This place has always been a main stopping point anytime I am in the area. It is so good that "in the area" includes a 60min drive because it is worth it. Food - the food was great. Just a heads-up that this place serves Native (un) Meats (aka veggie or fake meats). I'm okay with that but I know some folks are not so I wanted to flag it for you. But don't you fret as they have enough options that don't include this that will leave you satisfied. Make sure and try their flavored drinks aka Agua Frescas! Atmosphere - a lovely airy space that is very welcoming. You almost feel healthier when you are in there. The wood decor makes it feel welcoming to all (incl. Ron Burgundy) and the chalk written signs and menu add to the light hearted feel of this place. Value - The portions are very sizable. The burgers or bowls will be good enough to fill you as the only thing you eat there (plus a drink). It always feel like the price i$ right when the bill comes. Returnability - (aka would I go back). I would go back anytime I am near this or any Native Foods as I've never had a bad meal and working on going through the entire menu to know what are my top favorites. Service - Every time I walk in, there are greetings from everyone in the store and asking if I need anything or have any questions. When I mentioned it was my first time there, my server even suggested that I get a refill to go of the drinks.
