Frolicking in the autumn leaves, this little lion cub is having the time of her life as she excitedly plays in her enclosure.
Tiny cub Karis proved she’s not too dissimilar to human children as she threw herself into the pile of golden leaves carefully collected by her keepers, even ending up with a pile on her head.
Staff at the Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling, Scotland, had been raking up the leaves to keep the attraction tidy, when Karis’s keeper Brian Reid realised that his little charge might enjoy playing in them and moved the pile into her enclosure.

Craig Ellwood was a construction company created by Jon Nelson Burke and three partners in the 1940′s in Los Angeles. The name was chosen after a liquor store located in front of the firm offices and it lately became widely associated with many modernists buildings spread all over California. This success lead the firm’s “front-man” Burke to actually change his own name into “Craig Ellwood”, somehow literally embodying this fictious character.
The last architectural work attributed to Burke/Ellwood, before he retired in Italy starting a career in painting, is a 263,52 m x 43,92 m neutral plan spanning over a scenic landscape, a metallic structure reminding a stretched Miesian building.
The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena is an inhabited infrastructure, a two level continuous floor filling the request for large and uninterrupted work spaces. The exposed steel structure becomes an actual bridge when it crosses a creek and a roadway, and you can actually “drive” under it in google maps
my semester’s design project
A dynamic “second skin” which articulates a wearer’s need for personal space by responding to and exaggerating his body language. The piece changes position depending on the movement the wearer makes with each arm.
We used a combination of digital fabrication techniques and handcrafting to get this result.
Anatomical translation of human feelings
You do not suffer from your beliefs. You suffer from your disbeliefs. If you have no hope inside of you, it’s not because there is no hope, it’s because you don’t believe there is.
Robert Scott Gilson. Quarantena.
Project Description: Quarantine – Human ambition has surpassed the carrying capacity of the Earth. Quarantena facilitates the divorce of man from nature by exploiting the technological gap that divides the human from the natural. Q is a system for the isolation of environmental deviance. Q is a detainment network housing 1500+ detainees that cohabitate in 300 pods. Q floats within the uncertain atmosphere and above a mechanized earth.

9,000 Fallen Soldiers Stenciled into Sand at Normandy Beach
To commemorate “Peace Day”, British artists Jamie Wardley and Andy Moss, in combination with many volunteers, went to Normandy Beach and stenciled the silhouettes of the 9,000 soldiers who lost their lives on D-Day during World War II. With rakes and stencils pads shaped like bodies in hand, the group completed the temporary art installation titled The Fallen 9000.
The work is meant to serve as a stark visual reminder of the civilians, allied forces and Germans who died during the beach landings at Arromanches on D-Day: June 6th, 1944. The initial team began with 60 volunteers, but as word spread to nearby residents, an additional 500 people came to help with the temporary installation. Although the stenciled body impressions in the sand only lasted a few hours before the tide washed them away, the photographs serve as a reminder of the horrors of war and of the cherished lives lost.
Incredibly Massive Chart of Every Sci-Fi Starship Ever
Excuse the horribly scrunched image above, but holy shit is it cool. Deviant Art user, Dirk Loechel, created this massive comparison chart of nearly every sci-fi starship ever created. It’s got Halo, Star Trek, Star Wars, Warhammer, and so much more. Dirk says he’s going to add even more starships to the image in the new couple of weeks.
