Death-defying hammocks at the Highline Meeting Festival, Italy
These photos capture thrill-seekers (calling themselves “slackers” due to the slacklines they balance themselves upon) who have taken to hammocks held hundreds of meters across a chasm in Monte Piana in the Italian Alps. It’s all part of the Highline Meeting Festival; a meeting of likeminded extreme sports nuts; all getting involved in activities such as tightrope walking and paragliding.
Heights might not be for everyone, but I for one would love to hang out in one of these!

The proposed Kežmarské Hut by architecture firm Atelier 8000 reimagines the typical lodge as a cube that’s been rotated onto one of its corners. This concept was created for an international competition aimed at designing a building for the High Tatra Mountains of Slovakia.
The Samurai Champloo (サムライチャンプルー) cosplayers that stole my heart… Thank you SO much for bringing back so many memories. T_T The anachronisms, the animation, the music, the historical knowledge that it made me search for. I fell in love with Edo Period, japanese mythology and (ukiyo-e) painting. I fell in love with the director (Shinichiro Watanabe) and THEN with Cowboy Bebop. Masaru Gotsubo’s manga. Nakazawa’s designs. Shing02. SO much jazz knowledge from Nujabes’ samples. Thank you, Jun. どうもありがとうございます！Mystline still makes me cry. I fell so much in love it took me 9 months to write a tribute song over The Final View. It took a poem’s time, and hopefully it has the beauty of one… And the dopeness of yours. T_T Hope you and Dilla will listen to it next February 7. There hasn’t been a greek tribute (that sounded ancient) so it will be my honor. R.I.P. Samurai who smells of Sunflowers.

«Relief» - Julien Maire.
French artist Julien Maire has created a ‘film without film’ by utilising 85 3D printed figurines which move around an old rotational projection system to mimic an old film reel; an illusion of a motion picture.
Crafted from a semi-translucent resin turned into stereolithographic figurines, the slides depict the various stages of a man digging a hole. The projector creates a fuzzy square on whatever surface the image is projected onto, with the character appearing to move in the centre.
Maire produced the work as part of his FabLab residency at the iMAL Centre for Digital Cultures and Technology. A full video has yet to be released online but these images provide some idea of the resulting ‘film’.
