When ICE isn’t cool.

Kal El…. is literally Hebrew. It means Voice of God. He’s a Jewish illegal immigrant. For a reason. He was written in the 30s.

I mean Superman was literally written as an allegory for first generation American Jews dealing with the struggle of assimilation vs maintaining traditional culture. The birth of Superman as a comic was essentially Jewish Immigrant history.

Not all heroes wear capes, but a hell of a lot of supervillains hire uniformed thugs to terrorize innocent civilians.

Outsanding and Mysterious Pictures of Isolated Houses

by Oriane

Eric Ward est un instituteur originaire de l’Ohio mais lorsqu’il n’enseigne pas à ses jeunes élèves, ce photographe autodidacte capture au fil des saisons les paysages grandioses, parfois sauvages et souvent baignés de lumière des Etats-Unis. Cette sélection de photos qui donne à voir des maisons et des bâtiments isolés à travers le pays invite le spectateur à la contemplation, loin de l’habituelle agitation du monde moderne.

The Bridgehouse Llama Urban Design 

Based in Peru, Llama Urban Design celebrate a sustainable approach to contemporary architecture. For the creation of the ‘Bridgehouse’ residence, the studio has used locally sourced timber to connect two mounds of earth in a trapeze-shaped bridge structure, allowing the natural environment to exist untouched underneath. As the architects explain, the home “sits across the steepest part of the slope, drawing a 38-metre-long horizontal line that acts as a counterpoint to the landscape.” Llama Urban Design has implemented an open-plan layout with a core living and dining space, flooded with natural light through panoramic glass walls. The residence is entered from either side of the bridge, and a roof deck is accessed via metal staircases attached to the house’s exterior.

Less Pollution, More Surfing

by Troy Turner

tidex_otter_09

Your average surfboard is made from polyurethane, epoxy resin and plenty of other hazardous materials. They break easily and are often thrown away after a few years or even months of use. This means those materials often end up leeching into the environment, including the ocean in which they’re supposed to be enjoyed. Inspired to do something about it, designer Martin Spurway linked up with Otter Surfboards in Porthtowan, UK to create a wooden surfboard sourced from sustainable woodlands.

The board design mixes traditional surfboard construction techniques similar to Tom Blake in the 1930’s with a modern form and aesthetic. The construction started with the inside frame of the board, which was glued to the bottom skin. On the second and third days, the rails were built up from a series of strips. By the end of the third day the top was glued on. From there on, it underwent shaping and sanding of the rails as well as blending in the nose and tail. The top and bottom skins and rails are made using Western Red Cedar wrapped over a poplar hollow frame.

A board this beautiful is deserving of a bespoke bag, so Martin went on to make the perfect accessory. His bag not only protects the board when traveling with its 10mm padded walls, but offers extra protection to the nose and tail. Aesthetically, it emphasizes features such as the fin slot with reflective polyethylene in contrast to the 600 deniers recycled polyester.

Designer: Martin Spurway for Otter Surfboards

Nightlife in Tokyo’s Streets by Yoshito Hasaka

by Mehdi

Pour donner un aspect quasi-surréaliste à ses photographies de Tokyo, le photographe Yoshito Hasaka n’hésite pas à jouer avec le contraste ainsi que la netteté, qu’ils pousse à leur paroxysme. Cela résulte en un cliché parfaitement cohérent avec l’image que l’on se fait de la capitale nippone : des néons, du (beau) monde, de la vie, du marketing et une ambiance qui ne faiblit jamais.

New Paper & Textile Wildlife Sculptures by Kate Kato

by Laura Staugaitis

Botanical paper artist Kate Kato (previously) continues to use found and recycled paper to build intricate natural dioramas. A buzzing hive of bees makes a home in a matchbox, vintage books are overgrown with paper fungi and colorful wildflowers, and a shadow box is filled with butterflies and beetles. Rather than striving for exact scientific replication, Kato allows the original material to show through, lending a spirit of handcrafted whimsy to her work. Some of the pieces seen here can be purchased through Etsy, and you can explore more of the Wales-based artist’s work on Facebook, and Instagram.
