Inspire me now and RoboCop blueprints

Jack Self

The AR’s pick from the world wide web

German photography artist Michael Wesely has created long exposures of up to 3 years in monochrome and colour.

Related to the above image: Long exposures of video games. Still cameras: a Nazi Leica. Evil never looked so good. Also on Nazis – these beautiful images of Airfix kits… ah, childhood.

Design: I quite like this factory ashtray, which I think would sit well with that Studio Job coffee table. I am also liking this fold-away bike, these aerosol chairs, and the VW Moog concept car… mmm. I’ve also become addicted to this app (play it online as well) Clock Blocks.

Around the web: first up, if you haven’t seen the Berg iPad video yet then do it. now. It basically shows an adaptive re-use of iPad technology to produce phrases hanging in space. In a similar vain, the iphone app – MyFry – presents Stephen Fry’s autobiography as a searchable spiral categorised by theme. Its essentially a re-thinking of the reading act as an achronological, non-sequential activity. Cool blogs I’m into this week: Me-Ru-Mo (images) and the Dutch blog Young & Banging (not always safe for work, but safer than the name may imply). Inspire Me Now remains consistently quirky, and NerdCore has become one of my new favourites (mostly in German, but who needs language to understand RoboCop blueprints?).

Finally, the talented pen and ink art of Chris Dent, the Magazine Cover Archive and Stranded – the magazine documenting stories pertaining to the Icelandic volcano saga earlier this year…
