"what makes a woman HAPPY?

Now that you've heard Helen Lawrenson on the subject, you should be convinced that women haven't the slightest reason to envy men. Women ought to be happy. But happiness isn't one big glowing feeling that envelops us in everything we do. Happiness is built up from the satisfactions we get out of doing specific things. 

What does make a woman happy? Does she get a bigger kick out of a new hat than she does from taking Junior on his first trip to the zoo? Does she enjoy a hobby as much as a book. How much of her happiness depends on love? ... "

I used digitally recreated images of vintage postcards that are in some cases enlarged beyond recognition to call attention to the artificiality of nature captured via photographic, written, or otherwise indirect means. The quaintly archaic origin of the imagery may cause the viewer to lapse into a false sense that the image-capturing technology of today has allowed us to artificially expand our means of first-hand experience, but the single addition of a photographic image in the bottom center reasserts the same relation of fabricated viewership present in the original postcards.

"Ocean plastic can persist in sea surface waters, eventually accumulating in remote areas of the world’s oceans. Here we characterise and quantify a major ocean plastic accumulation zone formed in subtropical waters between California and Hawaii: The Great Pacific Garbage Patch (GPGP). Our model, calibrated with data from multi-vessel and aircraft surveys, predicted at least 79 thousand tonnes of ocean plastic are floating inside an area of 1.6 million km2; a figure four to sixteen times higher than previously reported...

... Finally, our results suggest that ocean plastic pollution within the GPGP is increasing exponentially ..."
