RIP Leonard Nimoy (NSFW)

Posted: March 2, 2015 in Uncategorized

I rarely feel much lose when I hear about a celebrity I never met passing. Not that any death isn’t sad, but a celebrity carries no more weight than any other stranger typically. But I was very sad to hear about Leonard Nimoy passing away. I’ve been a trekkie for pretty much as long as I can remember, so of course Leonard Nimoy has a special place of fondness for his portrayal of Spock. As well he has played some other great characters in shows I’ve enjoyed, such as his role as William Bell on Fringe.

But more than his contributions to beloved characters, there is so much that he contributed to the world as himself and through his art.

That artwork including The Full Body Project, an art project focusing on plus size women, mostly nudes. Celebrating bodies outside those typically portrayed as beautiful.

So while we mourn the loss of Leonard Nimoy and reflect on his acting career, let’s remember the other contributions he made too, including but not limited to this project.
