This image displays a series of images Mortenson made between 1982 and 1984 of the then-troubled region of the South Bronx. With an average of 30 ‘insurance’ fires breaking out in the region every day, Mortenson created a stark document of a neighborhood that makes Detroit look like a gated community. The crisp black & white imagery (completely devoid of people) only adds to the starkness of the images. Mortenson’s images lean heavily on the exterior facades of the buildings (almost eerily similar to Polidori’s document of post-Katrina New Orleans), produced in either two sizes–modest 8×10″ prints and luscious 40×50 images (image sizes are approximate…). Complementing these exterior images are studied & well-composed documents of the burned-out, smashed-to-hell interiors.

Rats at the Palais des Papes. We also met Clementine, the cat that belongs to the museum’s security staff :))

Note: I don’t do any serious photography and this is just for my own fun and entertainment. I’m a kid like that. Only thing I have is a really old Sony point-and-shoot digicam and maybe a bit of savviness with visual composition lol

In the 1970′s the Princeton physicist Gerard O’Neill with the help of NASA Ames Research Center and Stanford University held a series of space colony summer studies which explored the possibilities of humans living in giant orbiting spaceships. Colonies housing about 10,000 people were designed and a number of artistic renderings of the concepts were made.”

This is a 30-minute documentary produced by three Bad River Ojibwe teenagers that examines the spiritual, cultural, and environmental impact of a proposed massive open-pit taconite mine at the headwaters of our tribe’s ancient wild rice beds.

Excellent work by these young people in explaining why the open pit mine will be a disaster for the Water, the Earth and their community.

Please watch and share!

Japanese artist Jun Kitagawa installs large zippers in public spaces.  Between the giant zipper’s teeth you can see what’s below, like wooden beams or most of the time, a dark void. Many times the artist fills it with nothing at all.  (Via Colossal)
