Who Cares? So What?

Riding the bus in Detroit is not fun: Half of the city’s bus routes have been cancelled over the last decade, and waiting for a bus to show up can take as long as two hours. A new project is trying to make that wait a little more pleasant by building mobile bus shelters—and since this is Detroit, the shelters are made out of recycled parts from abandoned buildings.

Google introduces ‘time machine’ feature in Street View | theguardian.com

After the interesting effect when Google is showing different information about Crimea if you come from a computer in Russia than from Ukraine, this is even more interesting.

If the nation state is dependent on one thing to maintain its existence it is the power over it’s history. Even democratic countries are picking their historical facts and teach children the “right” story in schools. Yes, you could argue that Internet already have had an disruptive impact on that. I doubt it… At least not yet. But I bet this will. 

If you take away the nation states power over it’s history (and let Google run it) we have a completely different game! I wonder if the board of Google have pondered deep enough on the statement “Don’t be evil”. 

Geeks seems to think that being objectively true stands over good and evil… It is much more complicated than that!

by June Jordan
Even tonight and I need to take a walk and clear
my head about this poem about why I can’t
go out without changing my clothes my shoes
my body posture my gender identity my age
my status as a woman alone in the evening/
alone on the streets/alone not being…

My professor ended our final class period today with this poem, and it is one I don’t want to forget about.

Cause there’s this switch that gets hit
and it all stops making sense
and in the middle of drinks
maybe the fifth or the sixth
I’m completely alone at a table of friends
I feel nothing for them
I feel nothing, nothing.

my semester’s design project

'REACTIVE DYNAMISM'

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.
