My GoT Castle Ok that’s it, I can’t do any more of these. Must get on with some work…
This is great fun - like playing with lego. It is quite addictive really. Made with a small program called Hexel.
Welcome to the Future Nauseous -
Both science fiction and futurism seem to miss an important piece of how the future actually turns into the present. They fail to capture the way we don’t seem to notice when the future actually arrives. May 13, 2013 at 04:57PM

I fancied a BIG shower head ‘like what rich people have’. Will print this out tomorrow and try it :)
(5 piece - 200mm diameter - will replace existing 45mm diameter unit - design time > 1 hour)
Make magic wherever you go, the grass will grow and flowers will show.
For my niece Ariane :)
Global Risks 2013 explores catastrophes that are too big and unknown to hedge, even if many of them are already coming to pass. Its portfolio is fifty risk factors thick, with water shortages, liquidity crises and orbital debris, each precisely weighted by likelihood and potential impact and charted like commodities. Backlash against globalization is up. Extreme weather is up. Nothing is down. It’s never been clear exactly whose nightmares these risks are, and the lack of attribution is part of the point. They are supposed to rise up out of the data, objective and urgent, the voice of the planet demanding to be heard.
The data visualizations in Global Risks 2013, network charts and scatter plots of drifting risk points, look like graphic notation from the avant-garde wing of jazz. Simultaneously abstracting and reconstituting survey data into swarms of color, the graphics go for impact over legibility, sketching impressions of an intricate score that, if played as music, would carry a clear, smooth, rising melody.

This is a great piece, and I feel really shallow for doing thing but… That image! I want giant poster of this. It is already on my ipad home screen.
