Figure #1: Stability by Timofey Radya

View all 5 Photos

It’s a royal flush, the great titles of poker fan out on the table. Everyone scowls behind their shades, watching their chips fall to the hands of their opponent. The idea here is playing cards like these holding up an isolated, unoccupied throne.

Called “Figure #1: Stability” this presentation sets a bold statement with its message in the stone cold Russian countryside. Timofey Radya has given us a taste of his convictions concerning power. The backdrop is simply a wall of pines that blanket the hills, fluffy snow is the stage. Like a bunch of monkeys the crew sets up the “cards” (55 riot shields) to a circus sampler, careful to roll out an honorable red carpet, just in time for the kingly seat to be put in place. After just a short time standing, it crumbles from below, exposing great weakness and uncertain engineering. A threatening symbol of power has been turned into satire. Bravo!

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she's taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it's a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
