Jonathan Harris spent 9 days with the Inupiat Eskimos in Alaska, documenting their way of life, and their Spring tradition of whale hunting.

Really enjoyed this series of 3 videos on designers that work with light. In some ways what they are each doing is creating new forms of displays, each with a pixel that in some cases may be formed by an equivalent piece of technology (e.g. and L.E.D.) and in some cases by an object (such

My sister, Sarah, treated me to a morning at Kew Gardens yesterday, where the most amazing set of Henry Moore sculptures have been assembled. They’ll be there until the end of March.
