A love letter to Diane Nguyen, the most human cartoon on TV

Diane Nguyen on BoJack Horseman

“Being a woman is not a hobby or a pet interest of mine. You get to drop in and play Joss Whedon and everybody cheers, but when you move onto your next thing, I’m still here.”

This succinct truth is uttered by Diane Nguyen, a character who has to explain the frustration of living as a woman whose voice rarely gets a large platform, to a male colleague. Her relatable, frank statements are a rare breed on TV. What makes them all the more surprising is the fact that she does not appear…

Watch Yinka Bokinni go on a bowling date with a fan

Yinka Bokinna on her bowling Tinder date

First dates will never not be interesting. There’s something strangely intriguing about getting two people together for the first time to see what sparks might fly (or not, in some more unfortunate cases), so we’ve teamed up with Tinder to match a few faces you might recognise with a few others that you might not.

The results are funny, sometimes heartwarming and genuinely endearing, but they’re also firm proof that – despite what the internet might tell you…

Native Argentinean Landscapes Explored in New Hand-Tufted Rugs by Alexandra Kehayoglou

Textile artist Alexandra Kehayoglou (previously) creates functional works of art that explore the natural landscapes of her native Argentina. Her selected locations are often ones tied to political controversy, such as the Santa Cruz River, or areas dramatically altered by human activity, such as the Raggio creek. Kehayoglou uses her craft as a chance as a call for environmental awareness, embedding her own memory and research of the disappearing waterways and grasslands into her hand-tufted works.

Each tapestry uses surplus materials from her family’s factory, which has manufactured industrial carpets for more than six decades. The one-of-a-kind carpets are often installed against the wall, with a section of the work trailing along the floor so visitors can walk or lay on the woven rugs.

In December 2017, her piece Santa Cruz River was included in the National Gallery of Victoria Triennial in Melbourne. The installation showcased her research behind the future damming of the river and her own interpretation of the harm that will continue to influence the surrounding area. Later this month Kehayoglou will present a new site-specific tapestry that explores the tribes of Patagonia in the group exhibition Dream at the Chiostro del Bramante in Rome. You can see more of her work on her website and Instagram.
