  • Greece has been experiencing historical moments for the past months.

  • Slinkachu's Melancholy Humor

  • For an artist whose work frequently represents the themes of anonymity, alienation and loneliness inspired by city-living, it is perhaps appropriate that Slinkachu biographical details remain vague. Born in Devon in 1979, Slinkachu moved to London in 2002 where he pursued a career in commercial art and design. In 2006,[...]
  • What did Helvetica tell you today?

  • Helvetica is a feature-length independent film about typography, graphic design and global visual culture. It looks at the proliferation of one typeface (which celebrated its 50th birthday in 2007) as part of a larger conversation about the way type affects our lives.

  • The Excessively Long Shoes

  • Efficiency has taken over most of the daily interactions, architecture and objects in an urban context.

The objects and architecture composing the urban la[...]

  • #Unite4Heritage

  • #Unite4Heritage focuses primarily (but not exclusively) on Arab countries, in response to unprecedented attacks on the region’s cultural diversity and heritage today. We see the intentional destruction of irreplaceable landmarks; the systematic persecution of people on the basis of their ethnic and religious identities[...]

  • "Courtesy Counts, Manners Make a Better Ride" is the message the MTA is trying to get across to customers who ride the trains and buses. MTA NYC Transit is unveiling a new placard campaign which urges customers to be aware that just a few courteous actions can make the ride more efficient while creating an atmosphere t[...]
  • Come gli altri vedono

  • Vi siete mai chiesti cosa provino le altre persone mentre vedono quello che anche voi state guardando nello stesso istante? Questa è stata una domanda per me ricorrente durante i tre giorni trascorsi a Milano in occasione del Salone del Mobile, ha letteralmente invaso la mia mente in più occasioni e ho quindi deciso d[...]
  • Gluten Free Museum

  • Un anonimo blogger francese sta pubblicando su un Tumblr alcune immagini ritoccate, che sono una presa in giro della odierna tendenza ad alimentarsi con cibo senza glutine: sono famose immagini legate al mondo dell'arte o del cinema, modificate in modo da eliminare gli alimenti che contengono questa sostanza. Il prog[...]
