Back up, now!

March 31, 2011 § Leave a comment

You know you’ve been burned before. You lost your data. You know that, like in a hangover, you promised never to let it happen again. You vowed to always back up. And then you forgot.

March 31 is World Back Up Day. So take a break from what you’re doing and back up.

Make up your mind about your mind

March 31, 2011 § 3 Comments

Everybody has one. A conscious mind I mean. And with it comes the self-referential ability of theorizing about it. Philosophers of Mind, Cognitive Scientists, Neuroscientist and Religious Scholars have all put out theories on what consciousness is (especially in the last 20 years it has become a hot topic of study,and, believe it or not, zombies have central role).

So, where do I stand on the consciousness debate? That’s what Information is Beautiful told me:Identity Theorizing Emergent Dualistic Higher Order Theorist

What is Consciousness? Make up your mind is a short and sweet web app that gives you an overview of the main theories of Consciousness, lets you choose what you find more plausible and in the end hits you with an almost post-modern description of your theory.What is consciousness

P.S. I actually am not a Identity Theorizing Emergent Dualistic Higher Order Theorist.

Filling up the gaps

Bodies in the service of filling up the urban void? Choreographer Willi Dorner squeezes human bodies in brightly coloured hoods into the city’s most peculiar places. Into nooks and crannies, actually.

Bodies in Urban Spaces’ project was first conceived in an abandoned residential building in Vienna, in 2004, but it rapidly spread around the streets of the world, from London, France, Norway to downtown Manhattan. Willi Dorner works with performers, dancers and passengers, placing them into spaces where bodies normally do not go and occupying the urban landscape in a completely new way.

Larger-than-life people in candid shots

We’ve seen innumerable photos of them in every imaginable setting. Publicity shots and paparazzi shots. But the shots featured in This is not porn have the rare quality of capturing the real person. Carrie Fisher and her stand double sunbathing in their iconic Princess Leia bikinis. Salvator Dalí skipping rope. Dustin Hoffman goofing behind Sir Lawrence Olivier’s back. Hunter S. Thomson, John Cusack, Johnny Depp and an inflatable doll.

Living windows

March 30, 2011 § 6 Comments

On 911 Prestes Maia, in São Paulo, Brazil, there is a 22-story tower block that hosts an estimated 1,630 people, including 468 families with 315 children. Julio Bittencourt, raised in São Paulo, photographed the residents at their windows. Every window is like a theater stage, every person an actor. And most of all, every window is an extention of the residents towards their neighbours: through these windows they fight and make up, they talk, they cry, they fall in love, they grow, they die.
