  • Elaborate Photography of rotting Food

    Klaus schreibt mir: ?Du hattest vor einiger Zeit mal ein Feature meiner Serie mit Bildern aus dem Museumskeller auf Nerdcore, seit gestern habe ich nun meine neue Serie fertig. Darin geht es um Nahrungsmittelverschwendung.? Dazu hat er Speisen verrotten lassen, in klassischen Stilleben fotografiert und dazu Infos zu Produktionsstandorten, Preis, Transport oder Carbon Footprint gepostet. Sehr schöne Idee!

    Oben passend zur Saison yummy Erdbeeren und ne Wassermelone, hier noch ein paar Eier:

    The pictures of the series ?One Third? show food which is no longer edible, at various stages of decay. The products used for this study were once tasty items of food, for sale in supermarkets after being transported there from various parts of the world. ?One Third? exceeds the sell by date in order to document the full dimensions of global food waste.

    The title of the series- ?One Third?- refers to this particular percentage of food products which, according to a study by the FAO, goes to waste worldwide. Food products come with their own individual history and are produced in different ways in different parts of the world. They only have one thing in common: They are thrown away.

    One Third (Danke Klaus!)

  • Kid Zoom destroys some Cars

    Vimeo Direktzoom, via Juxtapoz

    Ian ‘Kid Zoom’ Strange hat für eine Installation im Herbst letzten Jahres sein Elternhaus als Model im Maßstab 1:1 in einer Halle nachgebaut. Dann hat er drei Autos davorgestellt und abgefackelt, das Video dazu hat er jetzt vor ein paar Tagen online gestellt. Metaphorische Selbstzerstörungskunst, oder so ähnlich. Faszinierend!

  • Jörg Brüggemanns Metalheads

    Vimeo Direktheads, via Swen

    Metalheads ist ein neues Buch aus dem Gestalten Verlag über die Fotografie von Jörg Brüggemann, die die globale Metalszene fotografiert hat und dafür nach Argentinien, Brasilien, Deutschland, Indonesien, Ägypten und die USA gereist ist. Auf der Website der Gestalten zum Buch gibt’s ein paar sehr schöne Previews aus dem Buch, ein paar mehr Bilder gibt’s auf Brüggemanns Seite. Derzeit läuft auch eine Ausstellung zum Buch im Gestalten Space, die Website dazu ist aber grade down.

    Heavy metal is a cultural phenomenon that unites its fans across borders, generations, genders, religions, and social classes. Photographer Jörg Brüggemann traveled to Argentina, Austria, Brazil, Egypt, Germany, Indonesia, Malaysia, Switzerland and the USA to shoot pictures of heavy metal fans for his Gestalten-published Metalheads:The Global Brotherhood. He told us all about the globalization of heavy metal, the fine line between being a fan and keeping the distance and headbanging women in Egypt.

    This latest Gestalten.tv will surely work up your appetite for our forthcoming exhibition at Gestalten Space. Accompanying the release of the book and featuring a live performance by SUN WORSHIP (black metal from Berlin) with Jörg Brüggemann in attendance, the show presents vivid images that capture the lives and passion of heavy metal fans from around the world.

  • Training Geese for a Trip to the Moon

    Vimeo Direktmoongeese

    Agnes Meyer-Brandis entwickelt grade ein Kunstprojekt, basierend auf dem 1638er Buch ?The Man in the Moone” von Francis Godwin, in dem der Held mit nem Wagen zum Mond fliegt, vor den Mondgänse gespannt sind. Dazu zieht sie elf Gänse groß, denen sie Namen von Astronauten gegeben hat, die sie als ihre ?Gänsemutter? akzeptieren und denen sie das Fliegen beibringt. Die Vögel leben auf einer simulierten Mondbasis in Italien und lernen Morsecode für Interspecies-Kommunikation, 2024 sollen sie zum ersten mal unbemannt auf den Mond fliegen, drei Jahre später will Agnes mitfliegen. Aber ich glaube, den letzten Teil des Projekts hat die Dame nur erfunden.

    Hier die Website zum Projekt, mehr Infos gibt’s auf We Make Money Not Art:

    Meyer-Brandis’ scientific experiment is inspired by The Man in the Moone, a story written in the early 17th century by English bishop Francis Godwin, a believer in the Copernican heliocentric system and of the latest theories in magnetism and astronomy. The book tells how Domingo Gonsales flies to the moon and gets to meet an advanced lunar civilization. The adventurer managed to escape the ‘magnetic attraction of the earth’ by harnessing a flock of birds called gansas, specifically trained for the purpose. Some critics regard the story as the first work of science fiction in English.

    Since it has become so difficult to locate moon geese, Meyer-Brandis breeds her own moon geese. She acquired the eggs last April, named each of them after an astronaut, placed them in an incubator, watched over them, witnessed the hatching and imprinted herself on to them as their stand-in mother, just like Konrad Lorenz did with greylag geese.

    The surrogate mother had to spend the weeks following the hatching in close contact with the eleven geese. The astronaut training started almost immediately, the young birds were encouraged to walk in a V-shape –the formation used to tow Godwin’s chariot– taken on expeditions into the mountains for high altitude training, taught how to use morse code devices for improved interspecies communication, and given lectures about astronomy and navigation.

  • Ant-Queen gets eaten alive during Gangbang

    Eine Ameisenköniging wird während ihres Hochzeitsflugs von einer Spinne gefressen. Und in Indonesien haben sie eine neue Gattung riesiger Wespen gefunden, die circa 6 Zentimeter lang werden und gigantische Unterkiefer haben. Auch hübsch!

    A new species of wasp discovered on the Indonesian island Sulawesi is two-and-a-half inches long, and has jaws so vast that its discoverer admits, ‘I don’t know how it can walk.’
    Lynn Kimsey, professor of entomology at the University of California, Davis, says ?Its jaws are so large that they wrap up either side of the head when closed. When the jaws are open they are actually longer than the male?s front legs.’

  • Death and Burial of Poor Cock Robin

    50 Watts hat Scans der großartigen Illustrationen von Henry Louis Stephens aus dem 1865er Kinderbuch ?Death and Burial of Poor Cock Robin?, das auf ‘nem Gedicht aus dem 18. Jahrhundert basiert. Und wo wir grade bei alten Büchern sind: Das Blog recto|verso des Antiquariats F.A. Bernett Books (via MeFi) sammelt sammelt obskure Magazine und Bücher, unter anderem gibt’s dort Scans von Anarchy. A Journal of Anarchist Ideas. und Damage: An Inventory, ?the magazine that?s not for everybody.? Letztere haben 1980 ‘ne größere Rolle im Wohlkampf von Jello Biafra gespielt, der sich damals als Kandidat für den Bürgermeisterposten von San Francisco aufstellen ließ.

    Notably, during the 1980 election cycle in San Francisco, Jello Biafra (lead singer of the Dead Kennedys) registered as a candidate and actively ran for Mayor of San Francisco. Lapin, Coyote, and staff writer Tony Rocco took part in the effort to promote his candidacy as a popular media spectacle and satire of corrupt local politics.

  • Pics from a Chinese gangsters phone

    Pics from a Chinese gangsters phone (via MeFi)

    [update] ABC hat ein paar Details und Infos zu den Bildern: Viral Pics Show Chinese ?Gangsta? Fondling Porsches, Puppies and Purse (via Boing Boing).

    It is not immediately known who this individual is, but there are some clues. He poses with two Porsches registered in two different cities: a Porsche Carrera with port city Tianjin plates and a Porsche Cayenne SUV with Beijing plates.

    Of the two cars it seems like he has more clout in Tianjin, evident by the quadruple 8888 on his plates. Numerology figures in very prominently in Chinese culture and 8, being a homonym for ?good fortune? in most Chinese dialects, is an especially auspicious number. All 8 license plates are usually reserved for the especially privileged whether by power, fortune or connections. So whoever this puppy-loving, murse carrying thug is, he or someone he knows or works for was able to put down a lot of money for those plates.

  • Minecraft Scientific/Graphing Calculator

    Youtube Direktcalc

    Nerds, they are the shit, man!

    Specs: 6 digit addition and subtraction, 3 digit multiplication, division and trigonometric/scientific functions. (The reason these are only 3 digits is because multiplication and division would take a long time to decode/complete/encode. Also, the fraction display is hard enough to build for 3 digits, let alone 6 – 6 digit RAM would not only be massive, but a bit pointless since the curves follow the same pattern surrounding the peaks.). Graphing y=mx+c functions, quadratic functions, and equation solving of the form mx+c=0.

    The screen and keypad were always meant to be the main feature of this machine. The main display boasts 25 digits. Square root signs are displayed and can change to accommodate any number of digits. Square root signs, add, minus, multiply and divide signs are displayed at appropriate times, and there is a full fraction display. The 7-segments for the fractions are the smallest possible, being only 3 wide, and stackable vertically and horizontally.

    Ein frisch auf der Erde eingetroffener Astronaut, der die letzten paar Monate im Weltall verbracht hat, beantwortet grade ein paar Fragen auf Reddit. Die meisten Antworten kannte ich, das hier aber nicht:

    I read that when you’re in space and close your eyes, you experience solar particles hitting your retinas as speckles of light. Was this the case, or was the experience different for you? ? Yes I did experience that. Sometimes it was a flash and at other times it was a streak of light. I’m sure it happens all the time but I only noticed it as I was getting ready to fall asleep

    Also: ?Is there any astronaut food that tastes good? ? Lasagna.?

  • Artificial Intelligence Journalism

    Constanze Kurz vom CCC schrieb neulich in der FAZ eine schöne Glosse zum unsäglichen Leistungsschutzrecht (via Fefe), das Ding ist sowas wie dystopische Copyright-Science-Fiction um deutsche Gesetzgebung und Journalismus. Darin erwähnte sie die ?Free News?, eine User-Generated Nachrichtenagentur, die unter anderem mit einer ?gut funktionierende[n] Übersetzungssoftware [?] ausländische Zeitungs- und Twittermeldungen automatisiert ins Deutsche? überträgt. Nun, Constanzes Science Fiction wurde bereits von der Realität eingeholt.

    Forbes setzt heute schon den Service von Narrative Science ein, das ist eine Firma, die aus ein paar Daten per künstlicher Intelligenz erstaunlich gute Artikel schreibt.

    Forbes?one of financial journalism?s most venerable institutions?now employs a company called Narrative Science to automatically generate online articles about what to expect from upcoming corporate earnings statements. Just feed it some statistics and, within seconds, the clever software produces highly readable stories. Or, as Forbes puts it, ?Narrative Science, through its proprietary artificial intelligence platform, transforms data into stories and insights.?
    Advertisement

    Don’t miss the irony here: Automated platforms are now ?writing? news reports about companies that make their money from automated trading. These reports are eventually fed back into the financial system, helping the algorithms to spot even more lucrative deals. Essentially, this is journalism done by robots and for robots.

    Dear Copyright-Lovers, you just got fucked by technology, again.

  • DJ Foods Kraftwerk-Month

    DJ Food postet anlässlich der Kraftwerk-Gigs im MoMA in New York (wo sie an acht Abenden alle Alben komplett spielen? whoa!) bereits seit Anfang März jeden Tag mindestens ein Kraftwerk-Item, seltene Cover, Packagings, Poster und sonstigen Schnickschnack. Herzstück der Sammlung sind seine DJ-Sets aus Coverversionen, von denen gibt es insgesamt sechs Teile, zwei davon hatte er letztes Jahr gepostet und grade eben hat er den letzten fehlenden online gestellt. Das ist insgesamt ein ziemlicher Knaller, alleine den Kraftwerk-Taschenrechner inklusive Anleitung zum Spielen des Tracks auf einem Casio Rechner ist Wahnsinn.
