Children work in an opium field in Badakhshan, which is Afghanistan’s largest producer of opium
Northern Afghanistan, 1992
“Dennis Siegel, a student at the University of the Arts in Bremen, Germany has built what he calls an electromagnetic harvester—it converts electromagnetic fields in the immediate environment into electricity to recharge a common AA battery. He’s won a 2nd place award in the HfK Bremen Hochschulpreis 2013 competition for Digitale Medien, for his efforts.”
Erick Swenson - Untitled (2004)
“Inspired by museum exhibits, set design, film special effects, and model making, Swenson crafts every minute detail of his tableaux, creating simulated, highly romantic scenes that often exceed the ideals of nature.
Spanning more than 7 meters, Swenson’s Untitled is a sub-zero oasis of mythical blizzard. Styrofoam snow and polyurethane ice engulf expertly moulded cobblestones, fabricating a spectacle of wintery Bavariana fairytale.
Within the gathering drifts, a fallen deer strains against death in a sublime allegorical moment.”
