Immer am Wochenende gibt es hier einen Sammelpost mit allem, was es nicht zu einem eigenen Artikel gebracht hat. Das ist mal mehr, mal weniger. Mal gucken, wie’s klappt.
René schreibt dazu: Mein Buddy Gregor Weichbrodt hat „Personen und Objekte der ‚Alternative für Deutschland‘ in die Schwarzweißfotografien der Apollo-Mondmissionen“ geshoppt und die Alternative für den Mond ausgerufen. Die passen da ziemlich gut hin, finde ich, […].
But it’s not just what they contain that matters. National libraries themselves are a reflection of the country they serve; their architecture can offer visions of both the nation’s history and its future. Here’s a selection of the world’s most interesting national libraries: […].
➔ National Geographic’s Travel Photographer of the Year entries show we’re already living in the future
Impossibly tall glass towers shooting up into the sky, a crowded neon street scene reminsiceint of Blade Runner, a massive development that looks like it was plopped down all at once in a computer simulation.
These are just some of the entries shared by National Geographic in anticipation of announcing the Travel Photographer of the Year in their annual contest.

The Shark in the Park visualizes the growth and development process of a special strawberry species called “Parco Pistris” which has been discovered by a Korean scientifical research group KSPRI in 2016. KSPRI commissioned animation-director-collective Polynoid to take their research and create a visualisation that would feature all of the actually pretty stunning facts about the plant and still be entertaining in order to bring the piece not only to a biology focused but wider and younger audience.
For as long as she can remember, Dr. Andrea Marshall wanted to be a marine biologist. Now, she’s living out her dream with one of the ocean’s most amazing creatures. That is, Marshall studies and helps protect giant manta rays. While Marshall’s work takes her around the world, she calls the vast, undeveloped coastline of southern Mozambique her home. There, she dives, photographs and interacts with these enormous, gentle, intelligent creatures. Strap on your fins, we’re going diving.
As a reminder, Dr. Marshall is a professional marine biologist. Please help keep our giant sea friends safe and NEVER TOUCH a manta ray in the wild. Thanks, friends!
This short is a comically cynical vision of a future where the water is gone, all that’s left is dust and desperation.
