Kent MonkmanThe Collapsing of Time and Space in an Ever Expanding Universe, 2011

In a life-size museum diorama, the artist’s alter ego Miss Chief, appears simultaneously in the past, present, and future as an aging diva alone in her Parisian apartment listening repeatedly to her one “hit” record - Dance to Miss Chief. Overcome with nostalgia, tears well up as she gazes longingly through a window at a sublime landscape - the trackless forests of her nubile youth but a distant memory. (via)


Jardin Fleuris by Alexandra Sophie

Jardin fleuris is a series of photographs representing the different ages of a woman. The first picture ‘Virgin Soil’ represents virginity, the second ‘Mûres’ which means both “blackberries” and “mature” represents puberty and first periods and the third picture ‘Broken Eggs’ represents the loss of virginity.
Most people don’t grow up. Most people age. They find parking spaces, honor their credit cards, get married, have children, and call that maturity. What that is, is aging.

I think the reason why twentysomethings are so fixated on age is because we feel a pressure to be a certain way at 23, at 25, at 29. There are all of these invisible deadlines with our careers and with love and drinking and drugs. I can’t do coke at 25. I need to be in a LTR at 27. I can’t vomit from drinking at 26. I just can’t! We feel so much guilt for essentially acting our age and making mistakes. We’re obsessed with this idea of being domesticated and having our shit together. It’s kind of sad actually because I don’t think we ever fully get a chance to enjoy our youth. We’re so concerned about doing things “the right way” that we lose any sense of pleasure in doing things the wrong way. Youth may be truly wasted on the young.
