Visions of Fast Food
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."

Traffic Shockwaves

Shock waves that occur in traffic flow are very similar to the waves produced by dropping stones in water. A shock wave propagates along a line of vehicles in response to changing conditions at the front of the line. Shock waves can be generated by collisions, sudden increases in speed caused by entering free flow conditions, or by a number of other means. Basically, a shock wave exists whenever the traffic conditions change. Read more.

Matt Pyke

Matt Pyke is another of my heroes. His work is beautiful, also the way he runs his studio is. This is one-hour talk he gave last year at the Liverpool Design Symposium.

Stemming from research in sensory associative perception and studies of electronically and digitally produced music, this work intends to visually and physically realise some of the philosophical concepts bound by the ambiguous programmatic restraints of computer software. Physical Loops by Robert Corish.

Recently I have been picking up programming again, and have to say there is almost nothing more rewarding than coding (if it works). Here you see an interactive study of physical network behaviors. Play around your-self:
