What better way to see interesting photos on Flickr, than by having them spew forth from a panda bear?
How long till I open a magazine to see a page full of flashing adverts? answer: not as long as I would like.
Interesting concept for a ‘wearable’ motorcycle, probably would be really fun to drive pilot although I wouldn’t expect to survive a crash in one.
A really nice collection of 1950’s space-inspired artworks.
In his new body of work, Pieter Hugo explores the multilayered reality of the Nigerian film industry. Nollywood is, surprisingly, the third largest film industry in the world, releasing onto the market between 500 and 1 000 movies each year.
Nollywood produces movies on its own terms, telling stories that appeal to and reflect the lives of its public: it is a rare instance of self-representation in Africa. The continent has a rich tradition of story-telling that has been expressed abundantly through oral and written fiction, but has never been conveyed through the mass media before. Stars are local actors; plots confront the public with familiar situations of romance, comedy, witchcraft, bribery, prostitution. The narrative is overdramatic, deprived of happy endings, tragic. The aesthetic is loud, violent, excessive; nothing is said, everything is shouted.
