x360

X360 is an attempt at one of the last great firsts for circumnavigation: to circle the globe using only human power: bikes, pedal boat, rollerblades, kayaks, swimming and walking; no motors or sails. Three quarters of the journey [35,000 miles] has so far been completed by Englishman Jason Lewis and the x360 team.

The Zero Genies

a€Thousands of years of spiritual insight and shamanic technology have enabled humans to explore the entire universe, conversing with the denizens of other worlds and witnessing far out visions. The Zero Genies are just beginners. Poverty stricken, slightly uncoordinated, and yet noble, they are convinced that space travel is not the exclusive pursuit of the rich and rational Western world. They are here to show that a comfortable carpet and well-packed hookah will suffice. At the Cosmonauta€™s Training Centre in Star City, aircraft with cushioned interiors create weightless conditions on board by plummeting out of the sky. The Zero Genies, hailing from an obscure land on the fringes of civilization, want to put Race back into the Space Race.a€™

a€So, within the magic lantern of a Russian cargo plane, they demonstrate the ancient wisdom of their people. They dance, levitate, and reveal, for the very first time in the West, the mythical Flying Carpet. On a shoestring budget, with mental discipline and Russian hospitality, the Zero Genies defy gravity and military-industrial economics to celebrate the dream within us all.a€™

"docuburst"

a new data visualization method for representing document content by a radial space filling layout technique. "docuburst" aims to provide a more intuitive abstraction than those developed through statistical techniques.

the root node is shown as a circle. all other nodes are assigned to a sector of an annulus with angular width which is part of the parent nodea€™s width, depending on the amount of word occurrences. highly coloured nodes have many occurrences, while almost transparent nodes have few occurrences.

temporary art interventions

Youa€™ve said you are interested in public spaces and that they are a€oedisappearinga€A. Do you mean it as physically disappearing or rather being overwhelmed by visual, commercial intrusions?

In England many public spaces are disappearing to developers a€" as parks and football fields being sold a€" but this isna€™t really what I mean. I guess that as we spend more time in front of a screen or with our heads in magazines and listening to MP3 players, we spend less time when and where we actually are.

I realized after reading Michel de Certeaua€™s Practice of Everyday Life that one thing I am doing (and we all do in some way) is to consume public space and by consuming it in some way we make it our own thus privatizing it to some extent. But instead we spend our time consuming other stuffa€¦

Citroen DS

ENZO.DS, a collection of clips of the classic Citroen DS on film. Fabulous stuff. A project by Wolfgang Thaler, who also has a hand in Touristen magazine / Mark Pawson’s Disinfotainment website, a vast repository of practically everything counter-cultural, including his own books. See What are you collecting at the moment Mark?, for example / paintings by Alasdair Lindsay / Double-Tongued, ‘a growing lexicon of fringe English, focusing on slang, jargon [and] new words…’. Compiled by lexicographer Grant Barrett / the BBC’s Voices project.
