We Are Cancer

Yann Arthus-Bertrand

The picture above is of 500-or-so nude sunbathers, from a global aerial photographic survey conducted by Yann Arthus-Bertrand and a team of editors, technicians, translators, etc. Started in 1994, the project is called The Earth From Above, and “was born from Yab’s dream for a general survey on the state of the Earth at the eve of the 21st century”.

Nina Paley

The picture of sunbathers made me think of an animation by Nina Paley called The Wit And Wisdom Of Cancer. Nina is known for her syndicated comic strips Nina’s Adventures and Fluff, and a number of highly acclaimed animated shorts, including most recently, The Sitayana.
