Self-portraits done to a different drug every day

Self-portraits done to a different drug every day

Incredible colorized historical photos An Austrian Artist Has Completely Reinvented The Door Austrian artist Klemens Torggler has reinvented the door with his latest project. Called the Evolution Door (which we first spotted on the blog Colossal), the 4-panel door opens and closes elegantly as though it's made of pieces of paper. Roggler calls it a "flip panel door" (or "Dryehplattentur"). Torggler has a few variations on this door, one with the origami-esque triangles that fold out to help the door move, and another system with rods that rotate two square panels. Currently the door is a prototype, and comes in a glass, steel, and wood version. Watch the triangle version in action below: And here's the steel door with rod system: Join the discussion with Business Insider Refrain from posting comments that are obscene, libellous, slanderous or inflammatory, and do not indulge in personal attacks, name calling or inciting hatred against any community.

The Privacy Worm Turns: Now You Can Spy On The NSA Instead of cursing the darkness of our surveillance state, one agency is lighting a candle of sorts, shining a spotlight on the NSA's spying program, or at least on the NSA itself. As part of The Day We Fight Back, a February 11th protest aided by open-internet advocates such as Mozilla and Reddit, Belgium-based agency Happiness Brussels launched a project called Spy on the NSA. True to its title, the new initiative allows users to surveil the agency whose clandestine initiative Edward Snowden revealed in 2013 to be surveilling us all. “It’s basically a reaction to the constant stream of NSA related news,” says Michael Middelkoop, one of the two creators, along with Sharif Abd el Mawla. “Every day there are reports of them spying on different levels and having access to all this personal data. Michael & Sharif's new initiative responds to current world events in the same sly manner they reacted to unwanted trends in advertising last year with the Instead of a Lion project.

RANDOM RADNESS VOL.381 We all enjoy having our eyes gently massaged by awesome and pointless images, so whether it’s rad or just plain random, you can find it here in Random Radness. Remember to follow us on our Instagram @theshockmansion – Enjoy! A closer look at communities thriving in unexpected places In Caracas, the capital of Venezuela, nearly 70 percent of the population lives in slums that appear to drape like silk over every hill of the city. Iwan Baan: Ingenious homes in unexpected placesIwan Baan is not as interested in what architects build as he is in the beautiful ways that people appropriate the spaces once the planners are gone. In today’s talk, Baan — whose breathtaking image of lower Manhattan after Hurricane Sandy hangs on at least one of our walls — shows incredible images from communities thriving in ways that seem quite opposite to the uniformity of suburbs. First, Baan takes us to Chandigarh, India, where people inhabit buildings created by modernist architects Le Corbusier in very different ways than expected. Then, Baan takes us to Caracas, Venezuela, where an abandoned 45-story building has become a miniature city. Baan’s talk will have you marveling at human ingenuity. With no lifts or escalators, the tower is essentially a forty-five-story walk up.
