RGB Fabulous Landscapes by carnovsky
Leafy forests and palatial interiors become visible under different coloured lights in the latest series of wallpapers and screens by Milan design studio Carnovsky .
RGB Landscapes by Carnovsky at the Fondazione Adolfo Pini in Milan this month included a wallpaper that reveals various scenes depending on the colour of the LEDs shining on it. The combination of red, blue or green light reveals the interior of a grand building, a dense forest or a marching crowd.
On the upper floor of the building, Carnovsky showed lacquered wooden screens and a handmade carpet decorated with animals and anatomical drawings. In the courtyard outside, the designers installed the Atmospherics series of 20 screens depicting landscapes and meteorological phenomena, such as a sun bursting through the clouds.
Last year we featured a lamp that uses three different-coloured LEDs to cast cyan, magenta and yellow shadows on the walls.
Important things from Igbohistory Instagram. European colonialism has, and still continues to dismantle the myriad of sophisticated social constructs upheld by so many African ethnicities, by presenting Africa as a unit by choosing to ignore the huge ocean of differences between ethnic groups, let alone countries.
Did Igbohistory quote the person who actually wrote this? As I read this, I had the feeling that I’d read the exact words before and not from Igbohistory. In fact I believe that I shared a link to the original essay on my tumblr years ago but I can’t find it now, I will sha…
I was taught this in my African History class, and since then i stopped referring to my people (Yoruba) and other ethic groups of Africa and the world as tribes. This large groups of people are nations with strong rich history and deserve to be respected as such.
i do hope that igbohistory doesn’t claim that this is their own work, and they simply forgot to cite where the information comes from.
I updated! I made a mistake pls, it was very similar to another essay I’d read but not the same.
I BEEN saying this, YES.
'Tribe' is a white anthropological word meant to diminish.

“I will give you an example of how race affects my life. I live in a place called Alpine, New Jersey. Live in Alpine, New Jersey, right? My house costs millions of dollars. [some whistles and cheers from the audience] Don’t hate the player, hate the game. In my neighborhood, there are four black people. Hundreds of houses, four black people. Who are these black people? Well, there’s me, Mary J. Blige, Jay-Z and Eddie Murphy. Only black people in the whole neighborhood. So let’s break it down, let’s break it down: me, I’m a decent comedian. I’m a’ight. [applause] Mary J. Blige, one of the greatest R&B singers to ever walk the Earth. Jay-Z, one of the greatest rappers to ever live. Eddie Murphy, one of the funniest actors to ever, ever do it. Do you know what the white man who lives next door to me does for a living? He’s a fucking dentist! He ain’t the best dentist in the world…he ain’t going to the dental hall of fame…he don’t get plaques for getting rid of plaque. He’s just a yank-your-tooth-out dentist. See, the black man gotta fly to get to somethin’ the white man can walk to.” Chris Rock
Well, America in a nutshell
“The black man gotta fly to get somethin’ the white man can walk to.”
Absolute genius way to put it
Damn good point ;-)
