I’m In A Serious Relationship With My Food

I’m in a Serious Relationship with My Food is a series that highlights the basic necessity and the infinite complexities relating to the human being’s profound connection to food.  With an unsettling air, these photos capture excess, insanity, privilege and options.  I wanted to make the scenes overwhelming, intimate and perverted, forcing the viewer into...

Science Fiction Is For White People

The concept of science fiction was built for white people; it took off near the start of the Industrial Revolution and age of Enlightenment in Europe. Scifi is then a very Eurocentric box, though The Arabian Nights and other folklore may contain elements of scifi. Scifi is an expansion, along with technology, in the human...

Nothing Sweeter

Nothing tastes better than putting down sexist men, as shown in Ona Greenberg’s monthly comic. Exploring the sweeter side of life shouldn’t be accompanied by any bitter remarks. Comic: Ona Greenberg  

Don’t Call Us A Girl Band

“Girl bands” don’t want to be called “girl bands”, and it utterly perplexes me. Last December, I put out an open casting call for a “girl band” of my own. I posted self-made flyers around my uni’s music building. My desperation to create a band came in A4-paper form: “BASSIST LOOKING TO FORM ALL-FEMALE GARAGE-PUNK...

Beach Hair

C’mon ladies, this is how to rock those sea salted, beachy waves that have been everywhere this summer! The men love this beach hair look, and why wouldn’t they? Your hair looks soooo good when it’s long. Image: Ona Greenberg

Bitchcraft

I was raised part-time by ghosts: grandmothers, cousins, the ouija board channels a family tree still hairpiled in ‘60s bouffants, still listening to Rumi on the radio. I occupy the absence of these women, whose lives I remember in a pre-Revolutionary Iran that I’ve certainly never known. And to their company I am adding, like...

Suck It To The Man

Set in a dark and damp corner of an East London pub, a soft storm is reaching its climax under the sweet hum of Frank Ocean. The cream of a light ale, brewed with age and set in stubborn tradition, floats about his pink mouth. We’ve had this conversation before and oh how he likes...

The 12 Consequences Of Being A Woman

  Women are blamed for being raped. Every six seconds a woman is molested and raped, even with anti-rape laws and strict enforcement of punishment for rape worldwide. The act of victim-blaming women happens more often than you think. We often blame the substance (i.e. alcohol) if it’s a man who rapes a woman and will more...

Bleeding Together at Edinburgh Fringe 2016

It foolishly feels like you are cutting accomplishment out of me when you gain successes similar to my seeming desires. Creative competition: the falsehood of obtaining achievement, is typified by this masculine, symbolic system— the fantasy of patriarchy in which we really live. Jealousy, deceivingly  labelled as “feminine”, cuts— spilling more blood than we consented to...
