Ghost profile

Vous n’êtes pas sur Facebook, c’est pas grave Facebook vend vos données aux publicitaires quand même.

Last week, I ran an ad on Facebook that was targeted at a computer science professor named Alan Mislove. Mislove studies how privacy works on social networks and had a theory that Facebook is letting advertisers reach users with contact information collected in surprising ways. I was helping him test the theory by targeting him in a way Facebook had previously told me wouldn’t work. I directed the ad to display to a Facebook account connected to the landline number for Alan Mislove’s office, a number Mislove has never provided to Facebook.
He saw the ad within hours.

skate aveugle

Dan Mancina a perdu 95 % de sa vue, mais cela ne l’a pas empêché de skater, parce que ce n’était pas quelque chose qu’une personne aveugle ferait ou pourrait faire. Donc il l’a fait.

There wasn’t a defining moment that changed my mind as to what a blind person was, but the day I started to build that bench sort of started it, and sparked this passion and stoked this urge to skate again.

Peindre la peau dans laquelle vous vivez

School Colors

Au début de l’année scolaire, Aeriale Johnson, enseignante de deuxième année, a demandé à chacun de ses élèves de préparer un contenant de peinture qui correspondait à la couleur de leur peau pour qu’ils puissent l’utiliser dans leurs peintures pendant le reste de l’année scolaire.

We started with a base of brown or peach tempera for each child then, in small groups, added white, yellow, red, dark brown and/or green to get to just the right hue. They looked like they were at Ulta trying to find foundation. 🙂 The conversations were great!

This Too Shall Pass

This Too Shall Pass

Inspiré par des emballages naturels comme les coquilles d’œufs et les écorces d’orange, le studio de design suédois Tomorrow Machine a créé une série d’emballages alimentaires biodégradables appelés This Too Shall Pass.

Ok, so generally, “This Too Shall Pass” is a series of food packages where the package and its contents are working in symbiosis. In this project, we asked ourselves how packaging can be made in the near future using technology that is available today.

The smoothie’s package consists only of agar-agar seaweed and water. To open it you pick the top and the package will wither at the same rate as the smoothie. It is made for drinks that have a short life span and needs to be refrigerated. For example, fresh juice, smoothies and cream. The packaging reacts to its environment so you could, just by looking at the package, see if it has been exposed to excessive heat during transport.

The rice package is made of biodegradable beeswax. To open it you peel it like an orange. The package is designed to contain dry goods such as grains and rice.

The oil package is made of caramelised sugar, coated with wax. To open it you crack it like an egg. When the material is cracked the wax no longer protects the sugar and the package melts when it comes in contact with water. This package is made for oil-based food.

Clair de Lune

NASA recently published this visualization of sunrises and sunsets on the Moon set to the strains of Claude Debussy’s most famous work, Clair de Lune.

The visuals were composed like a nature documentary, with clean cuts and a mostly stationary virtual camera. The viewer follows the Sun throughout a lunar day, seeing sunrises and then sunsets over prominent features on the Moon. The sprawling ray system surrounding Copernicus crater, for example, is revealed beneath receding shadows at sunrise and later slips back into darkness as night encroaches.

« The Visitor » du cinéaste et designer australien Pete Majarich est un court-métrage absolument époustouflant et atmosphérique sur un astronaute solitaire qui explore la vaste étendue de terre couverte de poussière rouge sur une planète inhabitée. Cette pièce fantastique a été entièrement tournée à l’aide de la fonction « active track » sur un drone DJI Mavic Air, qui a capturé d’en haut le paysage apparemment extra-terrestre du désert du sud de l’Utah dans Monument Valley.

Looking Out

Walking on the Desert

The Visitor Mountains

Armed with a camera drone, I travelled to Utah to capture the alienesque landscape of the desert on film. …Like many people, I’ve always wanted to visit Mars. But, it’s so far away. Last month I did the next best thing: I traveled to the deserts of Southern Utah. The landscapes there are otherwordly. Desolate. Stark. Abandoned. Millions of miles of dry, dusty red rock. You can truly get a sense of the millions of years of wind and water it’s taken to form the terrain.

Les chercheurs de l’Université Johns Hopkins ont découvert que beaucoup de gens ne savent pas quelle est la version imprimée en minuscules de la septième lettre de l’alphabet. Certains ne savaient même pas qu’il y en avait deux types.
Pouvez-vous deviner la bonne version ?
