Make poetry, not war - Batman’s branding - quick weaving - the Mansion - You Can Live Forever in a Paradise on Earth

Make poetry, not war
Invest in one of these graphite sculptures of weapons - a 30mm shell, AK-47 and the “Little Boy” bomb dropped on Hiroshima – that double up as pencils: ‘the more you draw or write poetry with them, the more they transform from weapon to art’.

Batman’s branding
Watch this video of the Batman logo’s evolution, from 1941 through the Adam West and Tim Burton eras to the present day.

Quick weaving
Watch a time-lapse video of Todd Duym weaving two identical photos of a rose together. The whole process took 20 hours.

The Manision
Take a tour of the Mansion by Harrison Varma (16,000 square feet, 8 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms, 6 reception rooms, indoor pool, gym and so on in Hampstead, London). Chic or soulless?

You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth
‘Give Hieronymus Bosch a Mac Pro with two 3.2-GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon processors and 32 gigs of RAM, unfettered Internet access and you have Case Simmons and Andrew Burke’s You Can Live Forever in Paradise on Earth.’
