Signe Emma
Signe Emma

Denmark's outstanding photographer Signe Emma did a photo project on the 30% extra salt in airline food, she explains:

The blandness of airline food has an explanation. Research shows that people lose their sense of taste when listening to the sort of ‘white noise’ heard inside an aircraft’s cabin.

White noise consists of a random collection of sounds at different frequencies and scientists have demonstrated that it is capable of diminishing the taste of salt. At low-pressure conditions, higher taste and odour thresholds of flavourings are generally observed.

At 30.000 feet the cabin humidity drops by 15%, and the lowered air pressure forces bodily fluids upwards. With less humidity, people have less moisture in their throat, which slows the transport of odours to the brains smell and taste receptors. That means that if a meal should taste the same up in the air, as on ground it needs 30% of extra salt.

She created a series of scanning electron micrographs of dissolved salt that appears to be a landscape viewed from an aeroplane in flight.

Past Perfect
Past Perfect

He who controls the present, controls the past. He who controls the past, controls the future. – George Orwell

Photo series about Egyptian war museum by UK photographer Jason Larkin: The museum, an institution to preserve and interpret the material evidence of the human race, has a long history, springing from an innate human desire to collect and interpret the world around us. By deciding how the past is presented and memorialized, museums not only preserve the past, they also play an important role in the construction of our ideologies, identities and the understanding and interpretation of ourselves.

I'm amazed by Kodak's first digital camera from 1975. Instead of saving the data on a card it used a standard cassette. It took 23 seconds to record the digitized image to the cassette. The design is beautiful too, only engineers can design this way.

Can you knit like that? Amazing photography by Phyllis Galembo. Again, via Does It Float.

Large-scale color photographs from 2005 to 2006 reflect the ritual adornment and spirituality of masquerade in Nigeria, Benin and Burkina Faso in West Africa. These portraits of masqueraders build on Galembo's work of the past twenty years photographing the rituals and religious culture in Nigeria, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica and Haiti, as well as the homegrown custom of Halloween in the United States.

Visions of Fast Food

12 Grams.

The last entry this year. A photo project by Photographer Jon Feinstein from NYC, called Fast Food. Happy new year everybody.

"There's this weird relationship that we as Americans have with fast food," says Feinstein, who titled each image with the given item's fat content, in grams. "I made a project where the food mostly looks disgusting, yet some of it is still strangely enticing—probably because the branding is so embedded in our psyches." He adds, "I may eat it on a lower frequency now."

Via Good.
