A = Adult
Common writing terms:

In my efforts to understand configurations of discourse & representation around UK pensions in 21st century, I've been fascinated, today, by Pendragon's competition, running since 2003, titled the "Art of Pensions" artofpensions.com/exhibition.php 1/

The Pendragon "Art of Pensions" is a full-scale competition – with a whole raft of categories (e.g. see artofpensions.com/winners.php?ye…). The winners & long-listed entries are all available for perusal on the Pendragon site 2/ screen shot from website linked to in tweet
The archive stretches from the early 21st century, through the economic collapse of 2008, & up to 2016 (I'm not sure what happened to the competition in 2017).

In addition to visual materials themselves, you can search by name of artist (some appear several times) & company 3/

πŸ€” In this long thread below, I look at the Pensions Regulator's (tPR) website, and ridicule it πŸ˜‚

#USSstrike #aesthetic #beetroot
This is the logo for the Pensions Regulator @TPRgovuk
This is not a standard font. The tail of the "e" is elongated.
It suggests that money was paid to design this specifically for tPR.
According to tPR, the employers provide the teabags.
Fun fact: MY EMPLOYERS DON'T PROVIDE ANY TEABAGS.
It does provide an overpriced Starbucks/Costa/Nero's on campus.

Yo my dudes I'm procrastinating on revising my book and my looming deadline so I'm gonna thread again and tell y'all about the invention of kabuki theater because it is #WILD

Let me tell you the story of a woman

and her incredible pants
The place: JAPAN, OBVIOUSLY
The time: THE DAWN OF THE 1600S. The Portuguese had arrived sixty years before, in 1543, and promptly looked around and went "oh my gOD the #AESTHETIC" which blah blah blah eventually led to an outbreak of weeaboos in 18th century Europe BUT IRRELEVANT
Because right as the Portuguese were gawking like unwashed tourists, the Japanese were eyeing them up right back and ALSO going "Oh my god the #aesthetic tho"

and then it was about ECONOMICS 😍 and TRADE EMPIRES 😍😍
