These beautiful moths and butterflies look like they’re ready to flutter up and away, but they won’t be doing so because they’re wonderful textile sculptures painstakingly created by North Carolina-based artist Yumi Okita. She sews, embroiders and stitches all sorts of multi-colored fabrics to create these oversized insects, which measure nearly a foot wide. She also adds painted details along with feathers and artificial fur. With great care Okita has achieved an awesome balance between astonishing realism and fanciful invention.

Our universities should focus on rape prevention, awareness and teaching their students principles of feminism and respect. Limiting binge drinking, shutting down parties, faculty oversight and separating dorms by sexes does not recognize the grotesque and pervasive issue of rape in our society, and that the responsibility for raping someone is completely on the rapist, not the survivor.
