This piece is just so striking and clever. And really, how cool is it to designate something as an ‘op-chart’?

  • "Perhaps London’s craven fealty to the ghastly rich will finally accomplish what no government policy ever has – it will rejuvenate our provincial cities."

  • Adam Curtis interviewed in the New Statesman. Interesting throughout.



  • "Hated London. Polluted, angry, alcoholic London. I’m going to kill it this time. […] This bag’s big enough for three changes of clothes, a laptop, and all of the stupid cables I intend to strangle London with."

nanoq: flat out and bluesome – artists’ survey of stuffed polar bears in the United Kingdom between 2001-2004 by Bryndis Snaebjornsdottir and Mark Wilson:


  This project is, as the subtitle implies, a survey of taxidermic polar bears existing in the United Kingdom today. In its methodology it actively sets out to track down these specimens. We have done everything within our power to locate every last specimen that exists as a whole mount, but also acknowledge that this may be an impossible task. We have reason to believe that some remain tucked away in private collections. […]
  
  After 3 years of research we have found 34 stuffed polar bears in the U.K. We have tracked them down, visited them on site, photographed and gathered documents about their history and provenance.


The original site seems to be down, but this mirror has some interesting tales.
