»I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!« by VFX artist Dave Fothergill. Awesome.
Brooklyn-based artist Daniel Kukla photographed the interiors of animal enclosure at 15 different zoos across the US and Europe. He says in his Artist Statement: »We, as humans, go to great lengths to satisfy our desire for a connection with the natural world, especially in our interactions with wild and exotic animals. Zoos are the primary site for this relationship, but they often obscure the conflicts inherent in maintaining and displaying captive wild animals.«

It has been a while. I know. Late, but no less spectacular. In 2009, Brooklyn street artis Swoon and some of her friends cruised on homemade rafts made from New York City garbage from Koper, Slovenia to Venice, Italy. Called the Swimming Cities of Serenissima, the boats looked like something out of the 1990s post-apocalyptic movies ‘Tank Girl’ and ‘Waterworld’ sprinkled with a bit of swamp water. Not only the craft themselves was made from re-used material, (including modified Mercedes car engines), but the team also picked up more flotsam and jetsam on their crossing, which they installed in a »cabinet of wonders«. It looks like a lot of fun and performance appears to be really good. (via Global Yodel).

As Napoleon once said, an army marches on its stomach. So what do different countries feed their troops? How does the field ration look like? And does it have any effects in warfare? Most armies in the world today now field some form of pre-packaged combat ration, suitably tailored to meet national or ethnic tastes. As you can imagine, it does not guarantee total satisfaction, but it fills up quickly at busy times. (via)
Stereogum writes: »Arca’s new video for ‘Thievery’ is an astounding piece of work, and it effectively does for twerking what Aphex Twin’s ‘Windowlicker’ did for late-’90s rap-video excess.« And for sure, this clip is owing to a kind of irritation. Check it out below.
