From What is Next Nature?

"Anthropomorphobia is the fear of recognizing human characteristics in non-human objects. The term is a hybrid of two Greek-derived words: ‘anthropomorphic’ means ‘of human form’ and ‘phobia’ means ‘fear’.

Its symptoms are irrational panic attacks, disdain, revulsion, and confusion over things that change what it means to be human: plastic surgery, robots, and intelligent animals. Will anthropomorphobia eventually become public disease number one?"

Corridors of Power

Luca Zanier's series, Corridors of Power, aims to portray political spaces in a fresh and surprising manner:

Luca Zanier - Corridors of Power

"Most are familiar with a parliamentary hall from the perspective of the spectators tribune, however only a few have seen the space from the physical vantage point of the Chairperson. It is my general interest in policy that inspired me.

This project should show where the important decisions taken by a few people are made. To get the permissions for taking pictures is hard work."

Despite youthful dreams
I’ll never set foot
on your dead grey soil.

Very effective data visualization animation by Michael Rigley:

"Information technology has become a ubiquitous presence. By visualizing the processes that underlie our interactions with this technology we can trace what happens to the information we feed into the network."

Pattern Play

Paintings by Jennifer Seymour:

Jennifer Seymour - Pattern Play

"My artwork documents the beauty of the urban landscape. The city is at equal times serene and chaotic; beautiful in complexity, surprising in intensity. Inspired by observing, wandering, imagining and remembering, these paintings are records of my travels and thoughts. I am fascinated by a reflected view and the intersection of inside and out. The city is always changing, always renewing itself and this persisting fascination remains the focus of my art.

My work begins with photographs I've collected and lived with over time. The photographs are altered and transposed into what becomes a personal view of the city that surrounds me. Photographs are then transferred to maple paneling, becoming a departure point. Charcoal, pastel and thin layers of acrylic glaze find their wayinto the work, altering and enriching the composition. The work is sanded and glazed in successive layers creating a surface which becomes as much a consideration as the subject itself.

Stellar Landscapes

Thomas Ruff's appropriated imagery of space:

I reckon this is the song to go with the images - Roly Porter / Caladan:

"Ruff's 'Cassini' series was influenced by a selection of images found on NASA's public website. The result of a four-year space programme on the part of NASA, exploring Saturn and its outer rings, Ruff has transformed the raw black-and-white prints with interjections of saturated colour."

Film project by Jonathan Gales, for his Masters in architecture at the Bartlett, UCL - "fanciful drawings of construction sites" using film, animation, music and photography:

"Megalomania perceives the city in total construction. The built environment is explored as a labyrinth of architecture that is either unfinished, incomplete or broken. Megalomania is a response to the state of infrastructure and capital, evolving the appearance of progress into the sublime."

The Topographic Projections and Implied Geometries Series

Awesome photos from Jim Sanborn‘s “The Topographic Projections and Implied Geometries Series”

Jim Sanborn - Kilkee County Claire, Ireland, 1997

"These images were produced by direct, large format, light projection. The projector, powered by a mobile generator, was moved from site to site. All of the pieces were photographed at night using long exposures. On moonless nights, the landscape was lit with searchlights. The landforms themselves are quite large, requiring the projector and camera to be, on average, 1/2 mile away from the subject landscape."

Sandwell District

Been enjoying the Sandwell District album. Especially liking Falling the Same Way:

Sandwell District

Via Matt Lyon (aka C86)



Not sure what this sculpture is but it's just off of Salisbury Road at the back of the Hong Kong Cultural Centre. We set the camera on a timer facing up with the fisheye lens... and tried to escape it's 180º view!


Little Shining Man

Made from over 23,000 individual components, the “Little Shining Man” is kite conceived by Heather Peak and Ivan Morison, in collaboration with architectural designer Sash Reading and fabrication design studio Queen and Crawford:

It features 1700 3D printed connectors, carbon fibre rods and cubenfibre aerospace fabric, a man-made composite that's normally found in the sails of racing yachts.
