Blog - upon a fold
wheel of life... January 15, 2014 Something very beautiful I just watched and wanted to share. It’s a film by André Gidoin & The Makerie Studio. All filmed in camera, the horses on the carousel are spaced to spin in sync with the camera’s frame rate, creating the illusion of motion. Each one is carefully studied to follow the one before it, so that once animated they appear to be galloping. I also loved the music. tweet this 30% OFF SALE...

HonestlyWTF My flight is booked and I’m off to Spain in September! It’s been nearly 14 years since I last visited so I’m beyond excited to return to some of my favorite places as well as explore ones I’ve been dying to experience. Case in point: Majorca. The idea of staying at Cap Rocat, a luxurious retreat which was once a 19th century Spanish fort, makes visiting this large Balearic Island that much more appealing.

Robots to revolutionize farming, ease labor woes SALINAS, Calif. (AP) — On a windy morning in California's Salinas Valley, a tractor pulled a wheeled, metal contraption over rows of budding iceberg lettuce plants. Engineers from Silicon Valley tinkered with the software on a laptop to ensure the machine was eliminating the right leafy buds. Les Cascadeurs by Laurent Gongora interrupts the flow of a waterfall Steel triangles protruded from a waterfall in central France to intervene with the cascade of water in this installation by artist Laurent Gongora. Laurent Gongora attached 24 metal elements to the rock behind the Cascade de Vaucoux in France's mountainous Massif Central region to "redraw" the shape of the waterfall. Arranged in an eight-metre-high diamond formation, the pointed shapes stuck out through the falling water and diverted the torrent over their tops. "Looking at this huge cascade, I thought it would be interesting to tame the way water is falling," Gongora told Dezeen.

Keyhole Gardens Keyhole Gardens First made popular in Africa, keyhole gardens are catching on in Texas and other hot, dry places. Keyhole gardens hold moisture and nutrients due to an active compost pile placed in the center of a round bed. Although most helpful in hot and dry locations a keyhole garden will improve growing conditions in just about any climate. From a bird's eye view the garden is shaped as a keyhole.

Black glazing wraps one corner of a Mexican apartment block A sheet of tinted glazing folds around one corner of this white apartment block in the Mexican city of Puebla, enclosing a roof terrace (+ slideshow). Local architecture studio Proyecto Cafeína designed the six-storey apartment building – called Tadeo 4909 – for a corner plot in the centre of Puebla, situated around 80 miles south of Mexico City. Rather than fill the whole plot with living space, the architects arranged the building's eight duplex apartments around a partially open steel staircase in one corner of the site. This provides residents with access to a series of walkways and roof terraces. The gridded monochrome glass facade that wraps around the upper levels was conceived as a contrast to the "chaotic" urban area and criss-crossing electrical wires that surround the site, and features one raised corner covered in dark-tinted glass.
