Two Men Get a Glimpse Into What Childbirth Feels Like [Video]

“Before I experienced my first labor pains, I really wasn’t sure what to expect. I had heard how much it hurt and the idea of all that happens didn’t sound like it was going to be a walk in the park. I have a very high pain tolerance so how it was going to feel to me — I wasn’t sure.
Then, I went into labor for the first time and understood. It’s a whole new type of pain that I had not experienced. Even after dealing with 7 kidney stones during that pregnancy, the pains of contractions and back labor were intense in comparison. It’s a pain that I can’t really describe or compare to much else — because it’s a pain with a great purpose, it is something I would go through again.”
2 Dutch television hosts got curious about what the pains would feel like so — for their tv show, they put themselves to the test. According to The Huffington Post, “the two men used electro-stimulations to simulate contractions so they could experience the distress for themselves.” The two men lasted through 2 hours of contractions (which is far shorter than my 14 hour labors), but the video is priceless.”
Thousands of Plastic Figures Hold Up the Floor
One of the most exciting contemporary artists of our time, Korean Do Ho Suh, created this large sculptural installation that doesn’t look like much until you come closer. Glass plates rest on thousands of multicolored miniature plastic figures who are crowded together with their heads and arms turned skyward. Together, they are holding the weight of the individual visitor who steps onto the floor.
Currently showing at Lehmann Maupin’s pop-up gallery at the Singapore Tyler Print Institute (STPI), Floor is one of those installations that’s wonderfully thought-provoking. The figures represent the diverse and anonymous masses of people who support and/or resist the symbolic floor.
This installation can be seen, alongside works by artists Teresita Fernández, Ashley Bickerton, and Lee Bui, from now till February 11, 2012.

There’s nothing better than smart use of color where it’s least expected.
This space makes me exceptionally happy. From the white plank floor to mix of new and old, coloring the stairway gives a seemingly plain space tons of charm.
Because turquoise makes everything better.
Not so much color, subtle?
But when you can’t decide on one color, do them all!
So there you have it, should be your dose of color for the day!
