Let’s bike it!

To celebrate International No Car Day, some Latvian bicyclists from the Let’s Bike It organization built a big, car-sized frame around their bikes to show how much space people waste when they commute by car instead of by bike.

Military field rations of the world

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)

psychylustro

A new work of Berlin-based artist Katharina Grosse. psychylustro transforms one of Philadelphia’s major transportation thoroughfares with a series of seven bright, bold installations along the city’s rail gateway between 30th Street and North Philadelphia stations. The work unfolds in a series of seven passages – from vast, dramatic warehouse walls to small buildings and stretches of green spaces — meant to be framed through the windows of the moving train, creating a real-time landscape painting that explores shifting scale, perspective and the passage of time. Magic train world.

Rave – A Cellebration of British Dance

The world’s greatest male disco dancers are over 50, wear 80’s fashion outfits and got a weakness for performances in museums. »Rave – A Cellebration of British Dance« directed by Rollo Jackson is pitched as »a neon celebration of the dance« filmed on location at the recently renovated Tate Britain, with a soundtrack from Warp artist Rustie. Warp x Tate was held last December at London’s major museum.
