Some of her notable projects include recent work for The Kitchen Guardian and Green August which ended up being sold on DFTBA. Your name Mei Lee. Your age23 Where a...

Hi everyone!, if you´ve read any of my posts you might already know I live in Chile but I am Colombian. This week's post topic brought me back to the harsh inequality reality highly present here but a lot more directly noticeable there back in my country. Since I am not there I´m not going to portrait a particular case but I will introduce you to 2 different realities coexisting at a bare minimum distance. So I´m from Barranquilla, where it´s summer all year long pretty muc...

You light a cigarette And your lungs cry out Is smoking fair? You breathe in the cigarette While her parents cry out She's hooked up to a breathing machine Is smoking fair? You exhale the smoke She struggles She cant breathe Her lungs collap...
