People On This Group Are Sharing Examples Of ‘Urban Hell’ That Look Like A Dystopian Movie But Are Sadly Real

The Annual Monsoon Ritual Of Mumbai’s Ocean Giving Back What Has Been Dumped In It

Not every building is as beautiful as the Palace of Versailles. Or blends into its surroundings as well as the Macallan Distillery. On the contrary, there are many structures across the world looking like outcasts that will fall apart during the next storm.

In some places, they aren’t isolated examples, either — even an entire neighborhood can be an abomination. And you can find them on r/UrbanHell.

It’s a photography subreddit of “all the hideous places human beings built or inhabit.” The online community invites everyone who wants to explore the darker side of the cities, towns, and villages in our shared world and welcomes any photos which show either ugliness, or a problem in urban development. Rural and suburban nightmares are also allowed.

About half of the global population already lives in cities, and by 2050, two-thirds of the world’s people are expected to live in urban areas. But as you can see from some of the photos in r/UrbanHell, in cities, two of the most pressing problems facing the world today also come together: poverty and environmental degradation.

New Delhi – During Lockdown vs. Now

Bad urban development isn’t just ugly aesthetics. It’s also poor air and water quality, insufficient water availability, waste-disposal problems, and high energy consumption, all of which are exacerbated by the increasing population density and demands of urban environments. Strong city planning is essential in managing these and other difficulties as the world’s urban areas grow.

Some of the biggest problems caused by urbanization are:

– Intensive urban growth can lead to greater poverty, with local governments unable to provide services for all people;
– Concentrated energy use. It leads to greater air pollution with a significant impact on human health;
– Automobile exhaust produces elevated lead levels in urban air;
– Large volumes of uncollected waste create multiple health hazards;
– Urban development can magnify the risk of environmental hazards such as flash flooding;
– Pollution and physical barriers to root growth promote loss of urban tree cover;
– Animal populations are inhibited by toxic substances, vehicles, and the loss of habitat and food sources.

Solutions might include:

– Combat poverty by promoting economic development and job creation;
– Involve local community in local government;
– Reduce air pollution by upgrading energy use and alternative transport systems;
– Create private-public partnerships to provide services such as waste disposal and housing;
– Plant trees and incorporate the care of city green spaces as a key element in urban planning.
– Ultimately, cities can bring us obstacles and opportunities as well as freedom and captivity, and it’s up to us to get the most out of them.

火の玉となって太平洋へと消えていく。国際宇宙ステーションから切り離されるモジュールの様子をとらえた映像

top
 今年7月26日に運用終了につき国際宇宙ステーションISSから切り離されたロシアのモジュールを見送る壮大な映像が話題を呼んでいる。

 そのモジュールは2001年の打ち上げ以来、長きにわたり船外活動や物資の供給に貢献したドッキング室「ピアース(Pirs)」だ。

 まもなくやって来る新モジュールに席を譲るため、役目を終えたピアースは再び大気圏に突入。その機体は火球のごとく燃え、残骸は南太平洋に落下した。

 寄る辺ない空間で20年続いたISSとの結合を解かれ、遠ざかっていくモジュールの姿はある意味切なく、永遠の別れを惜しんでいるかのようだ。 続きを読む

Sergei Pakhomov Creates Incredible Artworks Made out Of Pasta

Perm based Russian designer Sergei Pakhomov creates very original sculptures of macaroni – mill cars, helicopters, motorbikes, and other means of transport. Made from pasta, spaghetti, lasagna, and rigatoni, his sculptures attract attention of internet users.

Moreover, he has patented his idea. Meanwhile, it all started six years ago. By profession Sergey is a creative designer, developing various promotional products. To promote the macaroni factory “Krasnokamsk” he was invited to film the commercial about production of the factory. According to him, once, in the evening, an inspiration came to him. And, as they say, it all started. Although the advertising campaign did not take place, but the idea remained.

I regret to inform you that Sergei passed away at the age of 52 from the complications of a coronavirus infection on July 13, 2021.

Sculpture Artist Makes Incredible Realistic Busts of Movie Villains

Joop Bongaerts has created a host of amazing lifelike figures from Blockbuster hits including Planet of the Apes, Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. The artist has been working on re-creating characters and creatures into life like statues for the past two years and has set up his own business, Joop Bongaerts Creations.

More: Instagram

The self taught artist describes the five step process it takes to bring these figures to life, with some pieces taking more than a month of full time work to complete.

Joop, from the Netherlands, said: “Some characters take a lot of time to get right due to the complexity of the design or because you have to make a likeness, that alone can sometimes take up to about 120 hours. It is a five step process to create these busts, which starts with sculpting the basic shapes of the character or design.”

Joop said: “I try my best to create the character or design in front of me as realistic as possible. Starting with the basic shapes, then refining the anatomy and skinfolds to finally detailing the skin with textures, then I move on to moulding.”

After sculpting and moulding, Joop then moves on to casting.

He explains: “Casting is the more technical side of the process. With the casting I decide what the material and look of the final bust will be, I for example use silicone for creating a realistic looking material for the skin. I will pour and slush through the mould for several layers to get the right thickness. After this I pour resin and rigid foam behind the flexible skin to make sure the bust is strong and will keep the shape of the original sculpture.”

Next, Joop is ready to paint his creation.

He said: “Once the cast is removed from the mould I can start painting the skin. With different washes and tones I try to achieve the complex pigment of real skin and if the character has hair I need to punch all of these hair into the skin individually.”

After a long and detailed process, the final steps include inserting the resin eyes and denture, making the clothing, styling the hair and overall final detailing. Joop is private about the cost of his creations, as they differ in price due to size and artistic complexity, but he did say that the bare materials cost hundreds of pounds per piece.

He said: “The costs of these busts are dependent on the character.

“Mostly it depends on size, the bigger the character the more material is needed, but also complexity is important. If I have to add all kinds of armour for example that means making lots of individual moulds for these parts, again creating more material costs. So it is hard to say exactly but it goes into the hundreds at the bare least.”

Joop has an exciting future ahead of him and hopes to try and work on more realistic art.

He said: “I am very interested in the larger than life realistic art. Nothing is more difficult than recreating the human face, so seems like the logical and most exciting next step for me.”

A Horror–mad Seven-Year-Old Girl Has Ditched Disney Princesses to Recreate Scenes from Gory Films Such as The Exorcist and Chucky

Pint-sized Coral DeGraves has modelled as over 60 characters from some of the most iconic horror films with the help of her mum, Cheyenne. The schoolgirl became obsessed with horror films when she was just two and Cheyenne was surprised to find she’d prefer Chucky to Cinderella.

More: Instagram

Office manager Cheyenne said: “Coral has never really taken to princesses and other things in that realm. She doesn’t necessarily turn her nose up to princesses or fairy tales, she’s just never shown a distinct interest. While she loves all things horror and paranormal, she is just as much your regular animal loving, adventure seeking, girl scout.

When Coral was about two years old, she became drawn to Chucky so for fun, I made her a little Good Gal’s costume. She wound up later asking to wear that same costume to a horror convention a few months later. Being so young seeing and meeting these actors and artists who make and portray these characters took the fear out of the images and movies for her. From that moment any fear was replaced with genuine fascination. She wanted to watch all of the scary movies and she loves watching anything that shows how the monsters and creatures are created.”

The pair regularly attend horror conventions together sporting homemade outfits and Cheyenne insists that despite her age, the youngster is fascinated rather than scared.

Coral, who lives in Maryland, has been pictured as the bride of Frankenstein, the joker, a gory tooth fairy, Pennywise and a creepy Tinkerbell. Coral’s favourite film is IT but her parents make sure they preapprove any horror films before she watches them herself and Coral watches short clips to help perfect her interpretation of the characters.
