Rail Roadtrip = Pure Awesome.

RRoadtrip SEFT-1

Artists Ivan Puig and Andrés Padilla Domene (Los Ferronautas) built their striking silver road-rail SEFT-1 vehicle to explore the abandoned passenger railways of Mexico and Ecuador, capturing their journeys in videos, photographs and collected objects.

Between 2006 and 2011, the artists traveled across Mexico and Ecuador in the SEFT-1 (Sonda de Exploración Ferroviaria Tripulada or Manned Railway Exploration Probe). In a transdisciplinary art project, they set out to explore disused railways as a starting point for reflection and research, recording the landscapes and infrastructure around and between cities. Interviewing people they met, often from communities isolated by Mexico’s passenger railway closures, they shared their findings online, seft1.com, where audiences could track the probe’s trajectory, view maps and images and listen to interviews.

Tiny Beasties

Tuesday, 8 July 2014

You’ve never seen, felt, tasted or heard a single one of these denizens of our world, but they sense you. Not only that, the dorky dude with the  Simpsons eyes and funny teeth could save your life.

The BearPig-lookin’ animal is an 8-legged tardigrade that kicks ass and beats roaches on survivability in extreme conditions. I bet it eats live roaches too – it’s that badass. Even roaches can’t see it.

Click on the images to admire these cute lil’ buggers in large scale.

Tokyo’s Clothes Hangers Crows Nests

Conceptual Art installations? Nope.

“When I lived in Tokyo, I used to watch the crows take hangers from my neighbors’ balconies. (Hangers were used to hang out washing to dry.) The crows would work in pairs to remove the clothing from the hangers and then one would fly off with the hanger. I’d never seen the nests though.”
