NY based artist Jennifer Maestre has been fascinated with the tension within the spikes of the sea urchin and with her latest works she’s created them using pencil crayons. To make a sculpture, Maestre cuts pencils into 1-inch sections, drills a hole in them and stitches them together like beads.
Mako Mori - Pacific Rim (2013)
When you say normally, “and there is a young Japanese girl pilot,” you imagine a sexy, skimpily clad girl that has her T-shirt wet every five minutes… I wanted very much to have a character that ended the movie on equal terms with Raleigh and that they didn’t have to have a love story, they could have a colleague love story with respect for each other. And have the capacity to have a moving backstory. Rinko is an extraordinary actor and she’s incredibly intuitive and very brave… I didn’t want her to be the girl that turns into a sex object or a guy. Which is the normal thing in an action movie.
