The American artist Mike Stilkey was summoned by a bookstore in Seoul to design large-scale mosaics created with books.
I just like the use of the word “summoned”. Like dude wasn’t just hired, nah, they had to perform a whole ritual to get him there to do art.
Kevin from the marketing division got sacrificed.
Which looking at that artwork, worth it tbh.

In recent months, the artistic provocateur and technologist Alexander Reben has devoted his time to producing a series of visually arresting paintings.
And yet, the California-based artist and MIT-trained roboticist has yet to pick up a brush or a tube of paint.
His technique relies instead on a new creative tool that artists such as Reben are just beginning to explore: artificial intelligence. With the help of algorithms, Reben is producing images in collaboration with machine intelligence. The images are eventually reproduced physically in a Chinese town that is home to artists who specialize in re-creating works of art on the canvas, completing what Reben refers to as “a robotic loop of art-making.”

Steps are described as:
1. an AI combines different words together to generate an image of what it thinks those words look like
2. the AI then produces variants of those images by “breeding” it with other images, creating “child” images
3. another AI shows the artist several “child” images, measuring his brainwaves and body-signals to select which image he likes best
4. step 2 and 3 are repeated until the AI determines it has reached an optimal image
5. another AI increases the resolution of the image by filling in blanks with what it thinks should exist there
6. the result is sent to be painted on canvas by anonymous painters in a Chinese painting village
7. a final AI looks at the image, tries to figure out what is in it, and makes a title

Toronto of the 1940s was a tale of two halves. The draining effects of the second world war kept the city in a state of austerity until 1945, when the six-year conflict finally drew to a close.
In the years that followed, an uptick in the economy saw the construction of new affordable housing, the start of building work on the Yonge subway line, and increased attention to solving slum conditions in the inner city.
The decade also brought unspeakable tragedy. In 1949, 118 people died when the SS Noronic, a lake steamer docked overnight on the Toronto waterfront, caught fire and rapidly burned. The disaster is still the worst loss of life from a single event in the history of the city.
Here's a look back at Toronto of the 1940s.

The Toronto snowstorm of December 11, 1944 is a contender for the worst of all time. In just over 72 hours, 55 cms of snow fell on the city, burying streets waist-deep. The wind and weight of snow was so severe that a Queen streetcar was knocked on its side, killing one. 21 people died as a result of the weather, 13 of them from cardiac arrest while shovelling.

These interesting pictures, taken by photographer Harf Zimmermann, revolve around Hufelandstraße, a bustling neighborhood street in the heart of communist East Germany. The neighborhood was an anomaly in the increasingly drab Soviet-administered city. Buildings boasted proud facades and balconies, linden trees lined the broad sidewalks, and an unusual number of privately-owned shops remained in business. […]
