There is a sharp difference between the real and “reality,” or our sense of realness. Our human, agricultural and neoliberal (and so on) reality is now violently impeding less coercive relationships with nonhuman beings.

Ladd was among several sculptors who used their skills to fashion masks so soldiers could more easily walk in public without shocking and provoking gawking. The Boston-based artist joined others, like Francis Derwent Wood, who were making prostheses out of copper or tin that could be worn like glasses with spectacle bows over the ears. Through the American Red Cross, Ladd set up her small Studio for Portrait Masks in the Latin Quarter of Paris in 1917, its homey interior designed to give comfort and dignity to her patients. Scarred veterans’ transformation began with a suffocating plaster cast process used to capture each of their new imperfections.

To combat growing levels of air pollution worldwide, a technology and design team is converting airborne pollutants into consumer safe inks and paints. Air Ink by Graviky Labs, an India-based research company, is a line of products that includes pens, spray paint, and oil-based paints.
