The Aokigahara Forest is the most popular site for suicides in Japan. After the novel Kuroi Jukai was published, in which a young lover commits suicide in the forest, people started taking their own lives there at a rate of 50 to 100 deaths a year. The site holds so many bodies that the Yakuza pays homeless people to sneak into the forest and rob the corpses. The authorities sweep for bodies only on an annual basis, as the forest sits at the base of Mt. Fuji and is too dense to patrol more frequently.

El rostro de la guerra: fotografías de soldados antes, durante y después de Afganistán Mucho se ha hablado sobre la guerra, sobre su esencia ligada a una intención –tal vez primitiva– de dominar, sobre los desmoralizantes efectos que imprime en una sociedad y el monumental costo financiero, ético, psicológico y vivencial que implica. Hoy imaginamos, con relativa fidelidad y gracias a ciertos reportajes, filmes, y crónicas, que el participar en una guerra puede ser, comprensiblemente, un evento devastador para la naturaleza humana. Pero lo cierto es que pocos documentos retratan de manera tan contundente las implicaciones que una experiencia bélica puede tener en la psique de una persona, como la serie ‘We Are The Not Dead’: Soldiers on Afghan Mission, del fotógrafo escocés Lalage Snow. A lo largo de ocho meses, Snow retrató a soldados británicos del 1er Batallón pertenecientes al Regimiento Real de Escocia, enfatizando en tres momentos claves: antes de que partieran a la guerra, durante su estancia ahí, y una vez que regresaron a sus hogares.
Walmart is always good for destroying your faith in humanity on Black Friday, and this year was no exception: By day’s end, reports emerged from stores across the country of biblical struggles over waffle makers, pepper-spraying, and even at least one shooting. Maybe if shoppers took a closer look at Walmart’s business doings they wouldn’t be so willing to whip out legal airborne torture for a bargain Xbox. Or maybe they would, I don’t know. Still, what Frugal Dad has strung together in Weight of Walmart above, has to give even the most hardened Black Friday criminals pause. It takes what are by now well-worn statistics about Walmart--it’s America’s largest grocery, and the world’s largest retailer, employer, and earner of corporate revenue--and puts them into context, comparing the company to other businesses, industries, and even countries, to demonstrate the astounding reach of a corporation that looks more like a superpower every day.

October 18th, 2011. Both comments and pings are currently closed. You may have seen a version of these floating around which looked to be promotions for The Smithsonian Museum. They are in fact a series of self promotional work from the team at An Erratic Perspective. The Smithsonian Museum reference was initially included to make the posters more authentic, but removed to avoid confusion after the posters viral popularity on the internet.

One of the ideas hatched was Occupy Design, a new website that gives a "visual language" to protesters across the country. Jake Levitas, a designer from San Francisco who's heading up the project, says it's a chance to fight back at media who characterize the movement as directionless.
Constructed in the early 20th century, Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona known for the urban planning that divided the district into octagonal blocks. Influenced by a range of schools of architecture, Eixample Barcelona was designed in a grid pattern with long streets, wide avenues, and rounded street corners. Despite being in the center of a thriving European metropolis, the district provides improved living conditions for inhabitants including extensive sun light, improved ventilation, and more open green space for public use. And of course, the result from the grid-like structure is astounding from above:
