A Picture Is Worth a Thousand Blurs

first_imgHow was National Geographic able to publish an artist’s reconstruction of Homo floriensis (aka Hobbit Man) the same day Nature published the find? (See 10/27/2004 headline).  Martin Kemp (U. of Oxford, UK) explains in the Dec. 2 issue1 how Peter Schouten, an artist, got the gig:Tim Flannery, director of the South Australian Museum …. suggested to Richard ‘Bert’ Roberts of the University of Wollongong that Schouten be asked to produce a picture of Flores Man.  The resulting painting was purchased jointly by the university and the National Geographic Society, and the society then acquired the image rights (their television channel will air a programme on the discovery early next year).  The image was released to the public as soon as the original scientific papers appeared in Nature….Kemp seems a bit put off at all this.  He takes pride in the fact that Nature was “rigorously sober” and “impeccably” scientific in its portrayal of the scientific data, and avoided caricaturing the individual in artwork:Scientists will readily recognize that Schouten, like any artist relying largely on bones, had to make some key assumptions, not least with respect to fleshy and surface features, including secondary sexual characteristics.  For a historian of images, a series of questions arise about the ‘character’ with which the envisaged figure is endowed.  We cannot portray any figure without giving it some kind of definite persona, however subjectively its characteristics may be read by different spectators.  The features that speak most powerfully to us – the eyes, nose and mouth – are among the most speculative.Kemp notes that Schouten made the male individual look stoical and macho, spear in hand, holding its prey over its shoulder, hairy and transitional.  “Darwinian ‘ape-men,’” he observes, “are almost invariably portrayed as miserable and destitute, living in grinding discomfort, clearly waiting desperately for evolution to happen – even if not in their lifetimes.”  The guy does “not look like a bundle of fun,” he quips.    Are these portrayals helpful in educating the public?  “Such images flourish in the popular domain but tend to be denigrated within science,” he adds, and ends with a note of cynicism about the power of the artist over the work of the scientist:But the battered skull and bony fragments do not stick in our memory in the way that Schouten’s skilful painting does.  The process of discovery and publication has thrown up an instant icon that will be very hard to dislodge.  We can change our mind about recorded facts, but a potent image, for good or for ill, tends to become indelible.1Martin Kemp, “Science in culture,” Nature 432, 555 (02 December 2004); doi:10.1038/432555a.The history of Darwinist propaganda can be understood as a series of indelible icons of evolution that often have little or nothing to do with the facts, but become very hard to dislodge.  This is the propaganda value of visualization.  The Darwin fish, the horse series, hairy ape-men in a cave, Darwin’s finches, peppered moths on tree trunks, Darwin’s tree of life, Haeckel’s embryos – these all illustrate Thumb’s second postulate, “An easily-understood, workable falsehood is more useful than a highly-complex, incomprehensible truth.”  (Useful to whom?)(Visited 5 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0last_img read more

first_img Posted on April 15, 2019Author Nathalie DuboisCategories HeadbandsTags Grids London Good but not very strong It’s difficult to find hair bobbles that can cope with my thick hair without breaking.

These hold the well & seem less prone to snapping & breaking than others bought – very good buy. It’s hard to find hair bands that don’t break if you have long thick hair. These are great they don’t break:-). Unlike other bands, these have a little head where the band joins, so it fully protects the hair from breakage. Wish i’d found these sooner, would have prevented a lot of breakage. Perfect Five Starscenter_img Very good, my daughter is pleased with them. Good strong hair bands as advertised. They last more than once which is fantastic, i pull my hair back tight for excercise classes and these bands are standing the test if time. These are amazing i haven’t had a problem with the hairbands. Less likely to break than others on the market. I have heavy, thick hair, so need a band that won’t overstretch, and are strong enough. These do seem to return to size well enough. Were perfect for putting my daughter’s hair up for her ballet exam. I know they’re just bobbles but there the best bobbles i’ve ever bought lol. Oh and very reasonably priced. Good quality, not too stretchy. Really hold your hair in place. Pleased with these hair bands, they are good and strong and don’t snap when using in my thick hair. Bought as a gift, well sturdy and recipient was happy. When you try to tight the pony the elastic of the bobble break. I have very long and thick hair and i have always been struggling to find a strong and think enough hair band to hold my hair. No matter what i used my hair would always would slide down and just wouldn’t hold. This hair band is absolutely the best one i ever had. Good item, just what i needed to control my ponytail.
