Erik Solheim Took 3888 Pictures of His Yard to Capture The Four Seasons in One Image

Eirik Solheim Seasons 1

Eirik Solheim spent an entire year capturing the changing seasons from one window of his house in Oslo, Norway. The artist, hacker and all-around interesting fellow was using an old SLR set to capture one image every 30 minutes for the whole year (this was back in 2010). When the year was over he selected 3,888 images from the 16000 total (to match the 3888×2592 pixel resolution of his camera). Then he used a custom script to take the first line of pixels from the first image, the second line from the second image, and so on. In the resulting picture, we see January on the left and December on the right. The whole year arrayed in one-pixel-wide slices. Fantastic. [Read more…]

PARTISANS Grotto Sauna 1

Conventional sauna design has been using angular shapes for a long time, and that’s something a bit at odds with lounging comfortably in the heat. What if that warm wood interior could be curvaceous, soft to the touch, and even the eyes? The people at design firm Partisans have created just that with their recent project called Grotto. It might be the most beautiful sauna we’ve ever seen. [Read more…]

Like snowflakes, there are no two humans on this Earth exactly alike, yet all of our billboards would have us believing differently. While everyone is still probably overwhelmed by the courage that Kim Kardashian showed when she revealed her photoshopped body to the internet in attempts to “break it”, there are actually some mothers whose postpartum bodies aren’t so smooth and glistening. Photographer Jade Beall was one of them and she decided to post a picture of her un-retouched body, holding her infant son, on her Facebook page. The photo went viral and soon other women were asking Beall to photograph their bodies too. Hearing their stories inspired Beall to set out to show the world that being yourself is the most beautiful thing you can be. [Read more…]

The Millennial Rebuttal 1

They’ve been called the “selfie generation,” lazy, entitled and worse. But as this beautiful video explores, maybe there’s more to millennials. They’re “digital natives,” born into the first generation that grew up surrounded by digital technologies with no need to adapt.

And while people may accuse them of being lazy, time and again the data has shown that they value social good over personal profit. [Read more…]
