Dead Apple

Jack Self

AR’s pick of the world wide web

I’ll admit, even as a Mac man, I get a certain satisfaction from this comprehensive collection of destroyed Apple products. Related, I’m a sucker for ruined, abandoned Russian mansions. Not related, but equally bleak: a project by Pier Vittorio Aureli. Its strange, I find his lectures, books and articles fascinating but his architecture so super severe it would make Orwell’s MiniLove look soft. Awkward segue through ‘Big Brother is watching you’: 9eyes, a blog of startling Google Streetview images from Jon Rafman.

Blurring the line between graphic design and art (which is an interesting subject in itself): Adam Simpson. Straight-up graphic design: Logodesignlove.

Finally, some good news: bio-engingeered bacteria can cure concrete creep and cracks; a 2,000 year old Swiss Army knife (more or less); it turns out the organs of nuclear workers were secretly harvested for 40 years; 10 strange things about the universe.
