Bunch Of Artists Unite To Design The Interior Of This Surreal Bar And The Details Are Incredible

Q Caffe – about people. People. Dreams. Noise. Speed. Constraints. Fears. Masks. Trials. Failure. Flight. Liberation. Our world… HUMAN?

Entirely different from any other café, Q Caffe illustrates an actual story through its decor, about man and his strivings in a hierarchical and limiting society

Built in collaboration with 6th Sense Interiors and lots of other first grade artists, having steampunk and dark-fantasy influences, Q Caffe’s new design illustrates the social man’s path, presented from different perspectives, and the complexity of the oneiric, fantastic dimension that pushes past reality’s borders, amplifying and even transforming it. Each visual element has been thought through and worked on to the smallest detail, constructing this fabulous ensemble of metaphors.

The first room is dominated by Icarus’s figure – a mythological character who paid the ultimate price in order to reobtain his freedom. Sculpted on the entire front side of the bar, he symbolizes man’s aspiration towards freedom. Above him, the noise of daily life – represented by a multitude of sculpted hands and tongues – that triggers the puppeteered man’s balancing game: some dance, others walk, some are having a conflict, but all of them act out of the need of not tipping over, of remaining in a fragile equilibrium.

The transition towards the second chamber is made by the Human Chain, a disturbingly beautiful mural sculpture that symbolizes the loss of individuality and humanity. Faceless silhouettes that appear to be absorbed by the sometimes void of sense and humanity whirlwind of life. The world’s uproar is everywhere, contrasted everywhere by mankind’s need to escape from the grasp of this tornado that traps story fragments, anxieties, shards of the past and pieces of your soul.

Like in Icarus’s story, there’s an alternative, a hope that maintains the fragile inward equilibrium, illustrated by the hot air balloon in the center of the room. This represents a transcendental means of transportation that carries its passengers towards a better world of liberation, in which one can be himself, away from the systemic and social constraints.

The third room, the third chapter of the story, speaks about a man and his transformations. One of the main elements of the decor is the suitcase wall with its scenes that symbolize our immaterial baggage, in which we have deposited perceptions, experiences and ideas about love, art or consumerism. The suitcases expose the dominated individual, burdened – or even subdued – by certain conceptions and aspects of the society he lives in. The contemporary social “baggage” transforms the individual in the irrational, decaying world’s prey, which sets the most tempting traps for him. This image is made whole by the puppeteer’s “inhuman” figure – a metallic, steampunk octopus hanging by the ceiling, whose tentacles are ready to grab you in a fraction of a second and take away your freedom and individuality.

These aspects are also suggested through the four symbolic characters that give life to the Q Caffe universe: the machine man, the man with no scruples, the chaotic man and the praying man. Being archetypes of the contemporary man, they highlight the idea that the individual chooses, consciously or not, through what he does and believes, between being a puppet or being authentic and humane. The proposed problematic is of the man caught in the trap of his day to day constraints, imposed by society, who tries to escape in order to be himself again and have meaning in life.

Mad, Urban, Grunge And Sensual NSFW Photography By avid Kirscher

Meet David Kirscher, talented urban french photographer based in Paris and Madrid.

“My passion for photography started when I was 15. I bought for Christmas a camera for my girlfriend. It was a digital point&shoot camera with a 32Mo memory card that could take pictures and record videos (back in the early 2000s it was awesome). I was borrowing it all the time, so, when we broke up I decided to buy me one. I first recorded skateboard videos, school pranks, took pictures of my friends and made CDs compilations that I shared with them. Even if by the time it was just an everyday hobby, I actually feel like I never stopped doing it,” he said.

ワザとか?ジョークか?ツッコミ待ちか?最強におバカなニワトリさんに撮影者悶絶す

stupidchicken8


「鳥頭」という言葉がある。「鳥は3歩歩いたら忘れる」ことから、記憶力が残念な様子を表す言葉として使われるようだ。それとは別に「ニワトリは頭を切られても気付かずに3歩歩く」という由来もささやかれているそうで、そもそも「鶏頭」はニワトリに限ったコトワザだという説もある

 実際に鳥たちが忘れっぽいかというと決してそんなことはないと思うんだけど、いやもしかして本当に3歩歩いたら忘れるのか?と疑ってしまいたくなる映像が発見されたので、とりあえずみんなで見てみよう。 続きを読む

2歳前の記憶はどんなにリアルなものであっても偽の記憶。刷り込まれて作られたものであるとする研究結果(英研究)

girl-447701_640_e


 自分の一番古い記憶を思い出してみよう。
 それは何歳のときのものだろうか?

 最近の調査によると、約4割の人が2歳前の出来事を覚えていると答えているそうだ。だがほとんどの記憶の専門家は、2歳前のことを覚えていることなどありえないと述べている。

 一体どういうことなのだろうか?

 脳が記憶を形成する仕組みから考えると、その記憶が実は偽物で、作られたものであるというのだ。 続きを読む
