The Dorvack Document Pt 2

Continuing from the first post on the Dorvack series of WWII-inspired model mecha posted in January. No-one, except MaK is anywhere near the wicked aesthetic Makoto Kobayashi achieves. Click on images below to see details of either the dioramas or the sketches. Inspiring stuff!

Abandoned School In HK

Nice flicks (dunno bout the girl in the last pic!) of an abandoned school in Shau Kei Wan, HKG. The school has been closed for a number of years and has now become a great hang-out and proving ground for local writers.

Santos And Ortega Graffiti



Couldn't find any info on these guys, but definitely digging their style! (T-agang crew?)

Gigapixel Camera

The best professional digital cameras can capture photos containing tens of megapixels. But, thanks to an affordable robotic tripod, it is now possible to use a consumer camera to take images in the gigapixel range.
The tripod robot, called Gigapan, was developed at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and uses motors to capture a scene with a grid of hundreds or thousands of images with the camera set to full zoom. Photo stitching software then combines them into a single super-detailed image containing billions of pixels, called a gigapan. The largest, most spectacular gigapans can be too large to handle on all but the most powerful desktop computers.
The result is too detailed to be viewed on any printout, but gigapans can be uploaded to a dedicated site where users are able zoom right into the images.
With an affordable version of the device launched last month, the three-legged robot has the potential to be a boon to science, as well as holiday snaps.

Check out the detail HERE when it was used at President Obamas' inauguration.

Karborn Show In London

'Unknown Master'

A forward look at identity within ideas of space and time. Using a striking stand on what and where technology harmonises with more traditional mark making techniques... This isn't toy story... This is Charles Dickens and Andy Warhol watching Blade Runner in The Garden of Eden... beautiful and thoughtful and mysteriously English.
Unique artworks and print editions available, beautifully framed signed artists proofs. Hope to see you down there...

'Karborn I-I-I'

Twenty-three-year old Karborn is an anomaly on the London streets, an urban dreamer with feet riding the bassline and head in the clouds. The son of John Foxx (with whom he often collaborates on audio and visuals), Karborn’s work marries the organic to the technological, creating post-post-modern computer-meets-paper-meets-sound collages that are hard to decipher. Are they dystopian or utopian?

'Dream Mirror Portal'

'Birth Of Venus'


KARBORN - 'Time & Face'
Exhibition Gallery.
33 Marshall St, near carnaby st, london. W1.
open 11:30 - 6:30 pm everyday, including sat & sun.
19th February - 5th March 2009.

Sol AGC Crew Is 10 Years Old

I know this girl has been on the net for a while now, but I managed to find more pics of her and I just can't believe it! This girl has talent! Solveig is a 10 year old girl and graff writer hailing from Brighton, UK and is founder of the All Girls Crew (AGC). She has been painting since she was a ripe old age of 8 and has been known to do the odd tattoo as well! She is amazing and I will definitely be following her progress over the next couple years....

Have Your Say: Vegetarianism – yay or nay?

Aside from proposed health benefits, some climate change scientists are now claiming that people can reduce their carbon footprint more effectively by eating less meat or becoming vegetarians. The amount of energy needed to farm, transport and cook meat is so great that going veg would greatly reduce the worlds emissions.

In a recent documentary by Supreme Master Television, NASA’s top Climatologist Dr. James Hansen claims that saving water, changing light globes and using cars less is not as effective in combating climate change as ‘going veg’.  

Do you agree?

If global warming is real, do we all have a responsibility to go veg?

How far would you go to save the plant?

Leave us your comments.
