Jack London’s Extraordinary Photos of London’s East End in 1902

Men sleeping in Green Park.

In 1902 the American author Jack London visited his namesake city – at the time when it was still the largest in the world. In a book that became to be known as The People of the Abyss he described the time when he lived in the Whitechapel district sleeping in workhouses, so-called doss-houses and even on the streets.

It was said that about half a million people were living in these awful and terrible conditions in Britain’s capital city. London took the photographs that illustrated his extraordinary book (between 1900 and 1916 the American writer took more than 12 thousand photographs).

London was most disturbed by the number of “old men, young men, all manner of men, and boys to boot, and all manner of boys” who had no other choice other than to sleep on the streets. “Some were drowsing standing up; half a score of them were stretched out on the stone steps in most painful postures…the skin of their bodies showing red through the holes, and rents in their rags.”

Phosphorescent Glass Sculptures Illuminate in Presence of People

In an ongoing series of conceptual artworks, Japanese artist Rui Sasaki creates stunning phosphorescent glass sculptures to ‘record and contain sunshine’.

“I do not get much sunshine in Toyama. Living in a cloudy environment helped me realize how vital sunshine is for me both mentally and physically. How can I bottle and release sunshine in glass? How can I visualize sunshine? Can I transfer sunshine from here to there?

Each thin phosphorescent glass bubble is charged by a solarium light when nobody is in the space where the work is installed. When someone enters, the solarium light switches off and the thin phosphorescent glass bubbles illuminate the space. The illumination slowly diminishes over time, and the space slowly grows darker and darker the longer a viewer stays there,” she said.

入れないだとぅ~!改修工事のため家に入れないことにブチ切れるハスキー犬

改装工事の為家の中に入れないハスキーのブチ切れ
 この日、家の中では改修工事が行われており、一定時間中に入ることができなかった。飼い主と共に外で待機しなければならなかったハスキーのオークリーだが、入れないとなると入りたくてしかたがない。

 玄関から入ろうとするも飼い主に止められ、大騒ぎしてまた玄関に。更に止められると庭を駆け回っての大暴れ。

 これこそがハスキーらしさなのかもしれないし、そうでもないのかもしれない。  続きを読む

With a melange of glitch sculptures and rendered surrealistic images, the virtual space “beyond the mind” represents a transitional state between dream and reality that comes from the unconscious. Shapes and colors are not only aspects of beauty, they also have an inner sense and meanings that are understandable on an unconscious level.

Human bodies are transformed and modified here by various 3D modeling methods or data manipulation (glitching). Glitching techniques always bring unpredictable results. These shape transformations give 3D sculptures a new aesthetic and meaning. The digital world absorbs all sides of human activity, where a person can have a different face, a different life. It also changes the mind and the state of the psyche.

地球の核(内核)は左右で成長が異なることが判明
 地球は生きている。地球内部は球状の層が幾重にも積み重なった構造となっているが、最も中心にある「内核」は少しずつ鉄が固まりながら成長している。

 だがその成長には偏りがあるようだ。新たな研究によると、西側よりも東側の方が速い速度で成長しているという。 続きを読む
