Here is the human. Here is the human. Here is the perfect human / Rally!
In "A Shadow and its Source," L Nichols ruminates on the self via the work of South African artist William Kentridge and Jørgen Leth's film The Perfect Human. Then, in "An Expensive Glove," K Czap goes through the paces of Project Runway challenges to talk about art.
L Nichols is a multi-disciplinary artist who often utilizes the language of science and engineering in his work. His memoir, Flocks, depicts his history growing up queer and trans in an evangelical Southern household.
Kevin Czap is a Providence-based cartoonist and co-founder of the Ley Lines series along with L. Nichols. Their favorite season of Project Runway is 11, the all-teams season.
William Kentridge (b. 1955) is a South African artist known for his palimpsest-style charcoal drawings and animations. Time, change, and the political conditions of apartheid are themes throughout his work.
Project Runway (2004-present) is a reality show where emerging fashion designers compete for notoriety, business resources, and cash prizes. Best known for its Emmy-winning pair of hosts, Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn.
