Rafael Araujo - Calculation - Illustrazioni di farfalle e spirali matematiche Se l’arte può essere definita come qualsiasi forma creativa di espressione estetica, allora cos’è la matematica? L’artista venezuelano Rafael Araujo si è avventurato alla ricerca di una sua estetica pura, utilizzando solo una matita, righello e goniometro. Il risultato è Calculation, una serie di tavole in cui farfalle e conchiglie trasformano spazio tridimensionale e spirali geometriche in un preciso balletto di colori e ombre. In fondo tutto ciò che ci circonda è un divino esperimento matematico e l’arte non fa altro che cercare d’imitarlo.

A dream treehouse I've always wanted a treehouse when I was a child but living in a city made it a little difficult. Instead, we would built forts, tents or just crawl under the bed to play. It's weird right now but back then we really loved having those hideouts where nobody could find us. We could stay there for as long as we wanted. Telling horror stories and feeling like these were the safest places to be. But what happens if you're an adult and still dream of a treehouse? I did a little web research for treehouses all over the world and oh my what I found. Safe Arbor in Switzerland. Trillium. The enchanted forest. A modern, pitched roof treehouse. A treehouse morning. A dream treehouse. Those are just a few of many treehouses.

Content Shock: Why content marketing is not a sustainable strategy This post will demonstrate in simple economic terms why content marketing — the hottest marketing trend around — may not be a sustainable strategy for many businesses. Like any good discussion on economics, this is rooted in the very simple concept of supply and demand. When supply exceeds demand, prices fall. But in the world of content marketing, the prices cannot fall because the “price” of the content is already zero — we give it away for free. So, to get people to consume our content, we actually have to pay them to do it, and as the supply of content explodes, we will have to pay our customers increasing amounts to the point where it is not feasible any more. Paying people to read our content? You are paying people to read your content In 1997, I received my first company laptop computer, some brick-like device called a Grid. I explored the meager content offerings and found a file with NASA photographs. Fast forward to 2009, the year I became a serious content creator.

New York City's Hidden Subway Station Deep in the belly of New York’s subway system, a beautiful untouched station resides that has been forgotten for years with only a limited few knowing of its existence. Stunning decoration with tall tiled arches, brass fixtures and skylights run across the entire curve of the station, almost a miniature imitation of Grand Central Station… But it sounds like something straight out of Harry Potter, right? It was opened in 1904, with the hope of making it the crowning glory of the New York subway system in elegant architecture and a place for commemorative plaques to honour the work that had resulted in such a successful underground mass transit system. It was to be the original southern terminus of the first ‘Manhattan Main Line’; however the station was closed and boarded up in 1945. The reason for its closure was that newer longer cars were required to match the demand of passengers that passed through the system.
