National Flags Never Tasted This Good

le subliminal Where Science, Art and Photography Intersect (25 photos) Silhouette with Matches Caleb Charland demonstrates lessons in physics and mathematics with his mind-blowing photography. Inspired by children's books of science experiments, he photographs everyday objects (like matches, pens and mirrors) in ways we've never imagined, often using multiple exposures to tell the story. For example, in Fifteen Hours, the last photo in this set, Charland used 15 exposures to show how the flame of a dinner candle beautifully burns down. In still others, like in Cube with Rule and Penlight, Caleb Charland sits in pitch black darkness and, with a penlight in his hand, traces the shape of a cube along a ruler. I caught up with Charland to ask him a few questions about his work. The beauty of it all is that there's an honesty to Charland's work. “I guess you could do it in Photoshop a lot quicker and easier but I enjoy the analog process” says Charland, “there is something to working within limits.” Cube with Ruler and Penlight Arcs with Arms and Candles Three Jars

Edible Jello Cups Jelloware cups are made entirely out of agar and come in three tasty flavors. The cups were designed to be thrown into the grass after they are used, as agar is a seaweed extract and actually nurtures the growth of plants.

Puyehue volcano erupted for the first time in half a century on June 4, 2011, prompting evacuations for 3,500 people as it sent a cloud of ash that reached Argentina. The National Service of Geology and Mining said the explosion that sparked the eruption also produced a column of gas 10 kilometers (six miles) high, hours after warning of strong seismic activity in the area. AFP PHOTO/CLAUDIO SANTANA A 500 millas de Santiago de Chile ha entrado en erupción el volcán Puyehue obligando a la evacuación de miles de personas. Al margen de la tragedia, las imágenes que nos han llegado son realmente impactantes. Ya mostré hace unos días imágenes aéreas de las inundaciones en los USA que daban como resultado un bonito cuadro abstracto.

Power Food Combos The Oscar winning visionary filmmaker opened up during a Reddit AMA on Saturday afternoon. James Cameron, the acclaimed filmmaker behind sci-fi classics like Terminator, Aliens, and Terminator 2, as well as the blockbuster behemoths Titanic and Avatar, participated in a surprisingly candid Reddit AMA on Saturday afternoon. The self-proclaimed “king of the world” was online promoting Years of Living Dangerously, a 9-part documentary series about the filmmaking styles of top directors, which will premiere on Sunday, April 13 on Showtime. And Redditors, as is their wont, didn’t let Cameron off easy, prodding him with questions ranging from how to find missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370—Cameron knows how, apparently! Here’s the cream of the crop. [Note: No changes were made to Mr. On how best to combat climate change: The single biggest thing that an individual can do to combat climate change is to stop eating animals. On how to find Flight MH370: Well, I know how it will be done.

Basic House par Martín Azúa Voici un projet qui n’a rien de magique, mais qui a permis, avec du bon sens, de concevoir un abri mobile. Ce projet intitulé la « Basic House » est imaginé par le designer Martín Azúa . Un prototype se trouve au MOMA de New York. Ce dispositif, qui pourrait sembler être un véritable gadget, offre des solutions, tout en levant un certain nombre de questions et le discours du designer va dans ce sens. Il repose sur la dénonciation du système de consommation auquel nous sommes liés par l’usage de notre habitat. C’est un objectif atteint par l’usage du polyester métallisé, qui permet au projet de prendre forme par l’intermédiaire de la température du corps humain ou par celle du soleil. Cet abri qui est habitable, gonflable, pliable et réversible, possède l’avantage d’offrir une sédentarisation maximum tout en offrant la possibilité de passer, avec l’arrivée des beaux jours, un week-end sur la plage ou dans la nature.
