The Brazil Series

Since the 1960s Dylan  has, among other things, worked with pictorial art. A number of album  covers and small-scale exhibitions have been visible signs of Dylan’s  early work as a visual artist. According to Dylan, an artist must always  be moving and changing, and so an oscillation between different modes  of expression strikes him as entirely natural. Dylan created the paintings of The Brazil Series specifically for the  exhibition at National Gallery of Denmark. The series comprises approximately 40 canvases depicting Brazilian  scenes.  [1]

    The Bio Intelligent Quotient (B.I.Q.) Building is the First Fully Algae-Powered Architecture

    Operating successfully for over a year, the Bio Intelligent Quotient (B.I.Q.) building in Hamburg, Germany is the first to be fully powered by algae. The building is covered with 0.78-inch thick panels—200 square meters in total—filled with algae from the Elbe River and pumped full of carbon dioxide and nutrients. The panels, which display the bright green algae, are not only aesthetic, but performative. When sunlight hits the “bioreactor” panels, photosynthesis causes the microorganisms to multiply and give off heat. The warmth is then captured for heating water or storing in saline tanks underground, while algae biomass is harvested and dried. It can either be converted to biogas, or used in secondary pharmaceutical and food products. Residents have no heating bills and the building currently reduces overall energy needs by 50%.

(via A Noah’s Ark of Stuffed Animals Draws Attention to Pollution)
On July 17, a fishing boat traveled down China’s Huangpu River piled with 99 distressed stuffed animals. Camels, pandas, polar bears, leopards, and zebras clung helplessly to the dilapidated hull. For most passersby, the scene likely evoked either Noah’s ark or a memory of the 16,000 pig carcasses that floated down the polluted Yangtze tributary — which supplies water to 26 million people in Shanghai — last spring.

  7. Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back..Just come back..

    — Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Gaza (via redphilistine)

    Using a plastic Holga camera to depict how he sees the world, Brian set out on a cross-country photography trip last September and has been blogging the entire way.
