ALTERNATIVE MAPS

There were times when Angela Merkel had problems with maps, too . Considering that, one should not be harsh on the others. No more comments…

‘SAY_____’

Since the advent of industrialization, man has belabored the destruction of human identity in the technological sinkhole, enmeshed in metal, wires, and electricity and ever growing to the beat of Moore’s law.  The insistent currency of interchangeable events, status, and messages meted out by social networking sites presently fill the absence of the harder personal [...]

EVOLUTION

Before and after: Tuba Babuna in 2008 and 2012
Some months ago antievolutionist show girls of Adnan Oktar in Turkey were introduced to the world by Amsterdam based artitsts Pınar&Viola in Dazed Digital.

CURIOUS ICONIC CRAFT

But while c/o finally found a new and promising home [...]

FROM THE VAULTS: DANIEL JOHNSTON

Recently came across this portrait, originally taken for a mono.kultur issue that never saw the light of day – our apologies, Daniel!

PAST PRESENT FUTURE

It’s rare that architecture photography manages to make a comment not on architecture, but the passing of time, an international crisis and a current sports event all at the same time – as does Jamie McGregor Smith’s series Borrow, Build Abandon on the desolate state of the sites of the Olympic Games in 2004 in [...]

The original and the cover epidemics in the age of youtube.

Most of the songs are either great, good or bad. But some other songs simply are. Sometimes they also happen to have quite banal videoclips, that for some dark and unknown reasons wake up a kind of collective sick will of replicating it, endlessly. Mistake yourself not, this post is not about the song, it [...]
