The Van Allen radiation belts are composed of charged particles held in place around the Earth by its magnetic field. These radiation zones can endanger satellites. In this painting, three satellites have been damaged by the Van Allen belts and are falling out of orbit. They are small and spherical and drifting down like balloons running out of helium. The three satellites are based on three online photos of Greg Allen's 2013 sculpture "Beacon Inflatable Satellite". Each photo has different reflections of people viewing the artwork. The sculpture is based on a 1958 model satellite which was never actually launched into space. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Behind the satellites is an abstracted image based on a still from my Vine video of a Vimeo video of the aurora borealis over Norway. The Van Allen belts might influence the auroras, according to some sources, but I'm not sure what the latest scientific opinion is about this. In the foreground is a stylized rendering of my son's Global Glowball globe toy, which I had sitting in front of... more... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
James Van Allen used to come speak at my elementary school every year (his kids had gone there, and he still lived in the neighborhood). That was pretty freaking cool. - laura x

Supertyphoon Haiyan: Why Monster Storm Is So Unusual
""We've seen in the past decades the oceans are warming up, likely due to climate change," said Price. "So warmer oceans will give us more energy for these storms, likely resulting in more intense storms."" - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill) from Bookmarklet

The Logic of Stupid Poor People | tressiemc - Slightly misleading title, and hard to summarize, but this essay touches on something important that I've never been able to articulate myself. "Stupid Poor People" should be in quotes to get the point across better. - http://tressiemc.com/2013...

"I have about a half dozen other stories like this. What is remarkable is not that this happened. There is empirical evidence that women and people of color are judged by appearances differently and more harshly than are white men. What is remarkable is that these gatekeepers told me the story. They wanted me to know how I had properly signaled that I was not a typical black or a typical woman, two identities that in combination are almost always conflated with being poor." - Kamilah Reed (K.
