Herakut have just opened their first US show at the Carmichael gallery in West Hollywood.

Local River Fish Tank Concept
2008-04-09 20:38:00
Thought that this was a great conceptual piece that I would like to see more in people's homes. I have always loved the idea of controlling a self-sustaining ecosystem in a tank (I'm a bit of a bio-nerd)"Local River is the "home storage unit for fish and greens" as conceived by Mathieu Lehanneur with Anthony van den Bossche. Inspired by the Locavores, a group of culinary adventurers who eat foods produced in a radius of 100 miles around their city, they have proposed a home storage unit for live freshwater fish combined with a mini vegetable patch. This DIY fish-farm-cum-kitchen-garden is based on the principle of aquaponics coupled with the exchange and interdependence of two living organisms - plants and fish. The plants extract nutrients from the nitrate-rich dejecta of the fish. In doing so they act as a natural filter that purifies the water and maintains a vital balance for the eco-system in which the fish live."-words VIAInfo [VIA]Lehanneur's SITE.

Dragon Bar R.I.P.
2008-04-03 01:31:00
The Dragon Bar. A haven for graffiti writers for many many years. At least two generations of writers/streetartists have been drunk there and scribbled all over the walls. However, 4 weeks ago, the venue was torn down and will soon be turned into yet another group of non-descript "modern apartments". It was where I met many of my current friends 6 years ago and we will all miss it! A sad sad day is now upon us....See more pics and more juicy details of what was left at the Dragon Bar site HERE.p.s. a great post on the Graffoto blog....R.I.P. Dragon Bar

He has never joined the Flickr masses, but has been running his Fotolog account daily for a good few years now. Congratulations mate![VIA]

Abandoned Satellite Facility
2008-04-01 16:47:00
Located in Maryland, this area was once a missile base until it was deactivated in 1962 as a functional missile silo.From 1962 until 1993 the site was used by the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Microwave Space Research Facility Program. Most of the existing structures were completed in 1967, and included a parabolic ­dish antenna, transmitters, and a low-noise receiving system.In addition, the facility was also equipped fully for satellite tracking, data processing, and communications modulation experiments. Amazing photos of what could be a bleak planet somewhere on the edge of our solar system. More pics after the JUMP.

Chris Levine the Light Artist
2008-03-22 18:37:00
The "Light ness of Being", a show by Chris Levine, the light artist, has just finished in East London. It was quite a breath of fresh air to go see a local exhibition that was more about making you be aware of the show's environment and not just about analysing the Queen's holograhic prints on a wall."His distinctive visual language and seemingly effortless control over his technological media has differentiated his work from the main stream. His images have resonant power that is both highly original and super modern. As organic and alive as they are focused and precise, the visual results are always compelling and have a sense of distilled purity."Thanks for the photos Toshimi!Quote from Chris Levine's Website.

Funny Jpegs

Every photographer knows that it aint easy to snap that perfect photo of someone being shat on at exactly the right moment. Luckily, a talented photographer was able to catch this pigeon in mid flight pooing his daily poo load on this poor Innocent little kid.. making this photo frigging hilarious! Although, I tend to believe this photo may have been taken in China where they love eating pigeon and this bird was probably just getting his own back.. (that's alot of poo).As these photos were emailed to us with no reference or source I cant give all the details on exactly where this photo was taken but it needs little explanation as to why many guys would vote to have this in all toilets... remember if you shake more than 3 times, its considered a wank. I have a friend that can finish a Rubiks cube in less than five minutes on average.. which, to me is pretty damn good. Can any of you beat that? Below is Cube Art using only Rubiks cubes, not bad huh? I don't blame this cat for thinki...

Interesting Building Design
2008-03-15 22:59:00
The Dancing House in the Czech Republic is the nickname given to an office building in downtown Prague, Czech Republic. It was designed by Croatian-born Czech architect Vlado Milunic in co-operation with Canadian architect Frank Gehry on a vacant riverfront plot.This unique piano house was built recently in An Hui Province, China. Inside of the violin is the escalator to the building. The building displays various city plans and development prospects in an effort to draw interest into the recently developed area. The Robot Building , located in the Sathorn business district of Bangkok, Thailand was designed by Sumet Jumsai to reflect the computerization of banking; its architecture is a reaction against neoclassical and high-tech postmodern architecture. Polish architect of the Crooked House, Szotynscy Zaleski, was inspired by the fairytale illustrations of Jan Marcin Szancer and the drawings of the Swedish artist and Sopot resident Per Dahlberg.[VIA]
