Beautiful Destruction: 11 Gorgeous Geologic Maps of Volcanoes | WIRED

IT'S NOT ALWAYS obvious what it is that scientists find beautiful about a graph, microscope slide, soil sample or some other aspect of their work. It just looks like numbers, blobs or dirt to the rest of us. But sometimes a scientific result or product is so visually appealing, anyone would want to hang it on their wall as art.

Adding captions and subtitles to HTML5 video ✩ Mozilla Hacks – the Web developer blog

We finally have a native way to add video and audio to our websites. We also have a JavaScript API that allows us to interact with this media content in different ways, be it writing our own controls or simply seeing how long a video file is. As responsible web developers, we should also be constantly thinking about making our content more accessible, and this doesn’t stop with video and audio content. Making our content accessible to all is an important step, be it for someone who is hard of hearing or someone who doesn’t understand the language that the content is delivered in, inclusion can be paramount.

Se reapproprier les espaces defensifs ou deconsideres de nos villes

Couvrez cette ville que je ne saurais voir ! Depuis quelques années, les décideurs publics et les aménageurs urbains jouent les Tartuffe à trop vouloir se protéger des dérives de nos villes. Mobilier urbain anti SDF, éclairage spécial dans les gares pour éviter les drogués, dispositifs sonores anti-jeunes, la ville préfère contourner ses problèmes par des aménagements à tendance discriminatoire.

Au Canada, des bancs ingénieux conçus pour les SDF

L’automne dernier à Vancouver, au Canada, une association a mis en place des bancs spécialement conçus pour les sans-abri. L’initiative fait enfin parler d’elle. Septembre 2013 : l’organisme à but non lucratif Raincity Housing, en collaboration avec l’agence de pub Spring Advertising, installe des bancs destinés aux sans-abri dans la ville de Vancouver. Ces refuges temporaires, modulables pour certains, permettent à ceux qui n’ont pas de toit d’au moins se protéger de la pluie.

Architects are purposely designing uncomfortable park benches - Quartz

Much of the contemporary discourse on urban design is rooted in acclaimed architectural theorist Oscar Newman’s influential 1973 book, Defensible Space. Newman believed that criminal and generally irresponsible behavior was facilitated by (typically modernist) “anonymous public spaces”

Surrounded by sound: how 3D audio hacks your brain | The Verge

On a crisp afternoon late last year, I made my way to Manhattan’s Upper East Side to meet Edgar Choueiri, a professor of mechanical and aerospace engineering at Princeton University. Choueiri also heads the school’s 3D Audio and Applied Acoustics lab, and over the last decade, he has dedicated his time to the development, application, and refinement of binaural recording systems — a century-old method of audio recording that captures lifelike 3D audio in picture-perfect fidelity.

boro – the fabric of life

Mottainai and boro boro are two terms in Japanese philosophy which seem to perfectly contextualise Boro: The Fabric of Life, exhibited at Domaine de Boisbuchet. Mottainai is a term which conveys a deep sense of regret concerning waste whilst the phrase boro boro celebrates the beauty in something frayed, decaying or repaired and provides the exhibition with its title.

Diamond Atelier » Custom Motorcycle Garage

One night in July, 2013 - Cruising through the empty streets of downtown Munich like on any regular summer night, we approach the city’s biker hangout. With the familiar smell of gasoline in the air also comes the well-known selection of local customized bikes we have all seen so many times before. With most “custom“ parts being bought from catalogues and not hand-build, the majority of these motorcycles look like they rolled off the same Cafe Racer production line.
