A domino can knock over another domino 1.5x larger than itself.
The above Gif shows a domino 5 millimeters tall starting a chain reaction 13 dominos long that eventually knocks over a domino about half a meter tall.
If the reaction was 29 dominos long, the final domino would be the size of the Empire State Building.

Arc de Triomphe – From the Waste of a Civilization | Markus Jeschaunig | Via

In our culture bread is a symbol for safeguarding the basic existence. The consumer society lives by the idea that resources are available indefinitely. The industrialized world consumes more than it needs and less than it buys. In Austria, a country with about 8 million inhabitants, annually 170,000 tons of enjoyable food end up in the trash, 70,000 tons of it is bread. For the production, transport and disposal of goods and foods, large amounts of resources are required. To waste these raises questions about consumer behavior. Just the amount of wasted food in Europe could feed twice the hungry of the world. A new balance between economy and ecology is necessary.

The “Arc de Triomphe”, which was realized in the context of “street gallery – Lendwirbel Festival 2012″ in Graz (AT), accounts a global capitalist system that has passed the zenith of infinite growth. The “Arc de Triomphe” enlightens a dark aspect of our behavior  – waste production.

LIFT in Portland, Oregon - Dis-section (DAMD)

“Lift” is a modular and re-deployable seating environment that creates
a zone of relaxation and protection through the “virtual” bending of a
grass-filled plane. As the center of the grass plane is bent upward from
a horizontal to vertical position, the interstitial space between “grounds”
transforms into a seating environment while the bending surface
becomes railing, seating, anchoring and enclosure. Like the outer
covers of your bed, the outer surface creates warmth in an otherwise
materially cold environment.

Unique Piece Of History: 1956 Maserati 450S Prototype By Fantuzzi

This outrageously cool car was driven by the legendary driver Stirling Moss, along with Denis Jenkinson as navigator in the 1956 Mille Miglia 1,000-mile race. Unfortunately they experienced a brake failure and the car came to rest against a tree. But that’s when Fantuzzi came in to picture , redesigning the body and modifying the wheelbase in order to accommodate the new V-8 engine. The restoration of the 1956 Maserati 450S was finished in 1987, and after that, this unique piece of history was rarely driven.

A fine ‘Ro” sheer summer silk “miyamairi” kimono, one utilized to drape over a one-month old baby boy during rite of passage at a Shinto Shrine. Taisho Period (1911-1927), Japan.  The Kimono Gallery.  This kimono features the rare ocean scene many flying seagulls. The Shinto religion regards the white seagull as being more spiritual and therefore closer to ‘kami’ than many other parts of Nature. Noteworthy is the fact that the Shinto Kabushima Shrine of the Hachinohe district serves as a habitat for forty thousand seagulls. Hachinohe is located in the flatlands on the east coast of Aomori prefecture, on the northern edge of Japans main island, facing the Pacific Ocean.
